“Wild Things,” the follow-up to Alessia Cara’s chart-topping “Here,” is gaining traction at pop radio.

Spun 398 times during the January 24-30 tracking week, “Wild Things” ranks as the Mediabase pop panel’s #51 song. It was not even in the Top 100 last week.

Singles from One Direction, Zara Larsson & MNEK, and Empire Of The Sun also earn Top 60 rankings this week.

One Direction’s “History,” which was also outside of the Top 100 last week, improves to #52 this week. It received 389 tracking week spins.

Up fourteen places, Zara Larsson & MNEK’s “Never Forget You” takes #56 this week. The international hit earned 311 plays within the official tracking week.

Given a second life thanks to Honda’s “The Dreamer” ad campaign, Empire Of The Sun’s “Walking On A Dream” grabs the #57 position this week. The 2008 song earned 270 weekly spins.
