The week is still young, but there is nearly no doubt that Gwen Stefani’s “Make Me Like You” and James Bay’s “Let It Go” will officially reach the Top 40 — and comfortably so — on this week’s Mediabase pop airplay chart.
“Make Me Like You” received 580 spins during the first three days of the February 21-27 tracking week. Up a whopping 220.4% from last week’s count, the tally positions “Make Me Like You” at #35 on Mediabase’s building chart.
Since there are definitely not six imminent threats emerging from below, the song will not face difficulty retaining its Top 40 position through the close of tracking. Given its rate of gain, it should actually leapfrog some additional songs before the week concludes.
Spun 446 times during the tracking week’s first three days (+1293.8%), “Let It Go” is #38 on building. It, too, should only mover higher as the week progresses.
The Stefani and Bay song were #42 and #52, respectively, on last week’s official chart.
