It was only a few weeks ago that Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” was the #1 song at pop radio.

This week, the #1 song is his follow-up single “Love Yourself.”

Up three places from last week’s position, “Love Yourself” tops Mediabase’s pop airplay chart on the strength of ~18,481 tracking week spins (+2,230). It seizes the throne from Alessia Cara’s “Here,” which slips to #3 after a single week on top.

“Here” received ~15,765 plays during the January 24-30 tracking week (-1,710).

“Love Yourself” is the third straight (and third career) pop radio #1 for Bieber, who previously led the chart with the aforementioned “Sorry” and its predecessor “What Do You Mean?”

Sandwiched between “Love Yourself” and “Here” is twenty one pilots’ “Stressed Out.” Up four places, the crossover smash takes #2 with ~15,851 weekly spins (+2,039).

The Weeknd’s “In The Night” rises one place to #4 courtesy ~15,456 plays (+968), while Bieber’s “Sorry” drops three places to #5 with ~14,479 weekly spins (-1,910).
