As Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” marches toward a Top 3 (if not Top 2) position on the Mediabase pop radio airplay chart, planned follow-up “Love Yourself” is on track to secure a Top 50 ranking.
“Love Yourself” received 520 plays during the first five days of the November 29-December 5 tracking week. Up 114.9% from the spin count at this point this week, the tally positions “Love Yourself” at #49 on Mediabase’s building chart.
Given its rate of growth, “Love Yourself” will have no trouble retaining its Top 50 ranking through the end of the tracking period.
“Love Yourself” was officially #57 last week.
A standout track from “Purpose,” “Love Yourself” began receiving immediate airplay in conjunction with the album’s release — prior to any confirmation that it was the next single.
While “Sorry” remains the promotional focus, Def Jam has begun to softly acknowledge “Love Yourself” as the official follow-up.
