Make that six weeks for Drake’s “Hotline Bling.”

Six weeks atop the Mediabase rhythmic airplay chart, that is.

A slight loss in weekly spins does not prevent Drake’s smash from once again dominating the listing. It received a format-leading ~7,118 rhythmic plays during the November 15-21 tracking week (-11).

Fetty Wap’s “679,” which repeats as the runner-up, distantly trails with ~5,996 weekly plays (-211).

Alessia Cara’s “Here” holds at #3 (~5,781, +624), while Post Malone’s “White Iverson” (#4, +2 | ~4,989, +639) and The Weeknd’s “The Hills” (#5, -1 | ~4,556, -482) complete the Top 5.

The Post Malone song is making its first Top 5 appearance.

— Drake’s “Hotline Bling” concurrently earns a seventh week at #1 on the urban airplay chart. It holds at #3 on pop.
