Chris Brown’s “Zero,” Shawn & Camila’s “IKWYDLS” Headed For Pop Radio’s Top 40

Already a Top 10 hit at rhythmic radio, Chris Brown’s “Zero” is on pace to reach the Top 40 at the pop format.

“Zero” received 1,058 pop radio spins during the first six days of the November 22-28 tracking week. Up 5.0% from the previous week’s mark, the tally earns “Zero” the #38 position on Mediabase’s building airplay chart.

While it may be overtaken by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s soaring “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” it may itself overtake Nico & Vinz’ declining “That’s How You Know.” Either way, it will surely remain inside the Top 40 through the close of the tracking week and thus surely grab a Top 40 position on the official chart.

“Zero” was #42 on last week’s official Mediabase pop airplay chart.

The aforementioned “IKWYDLS” will also be making its inaugural Top 40 appearance on this week’s chart.

The song has received 1,047 plays during the tracking week’s first six days. That bests last week’s count by a whopping 251.3% (granted, the song had only been available for three days at this time last week) and positions “IKWYDLS” at #39 on the Mediabase building chart.

As noted, the Shawn Mendes-Camila Cabello collaboration appears poised to move even higher prior to the close of the tracking week. It, therefore, will surely claim a Top 40 position on the official Mediabase pop airplay chart.

Measuring airplay from November 22-28, the official chart is due Sunday night.
