Like at pop, twenty one pilots’ “Stressed Out” leads hot adult contemporary radio for a second straight week.

This week’s position atop the Mediabase Hot AC airplay chart comes courtesy a tracking week spin count of ~6,527. The count, which bests last week’s mark by 114, keeps “Stressed Out” ahead of the pack.

Adele’s “When We Were Young,” which rises one place to #2, received ~6,072 spins during the official February 28-March 5 tracking week (+287). Up two places, Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” grabs #3 on the strength of ~5,896 spins (+1,059).

Rachel Platten’s former #1 “Stand By You” (#4, -2 | ~5,580, -349) and Shawn Mendes’ former #1 “Stitches” (#5, -1 | ~4,963, -122) complete the Top 5.

While there are some positional shakeups, the Top 5 is without a new addition this week. The Top 10 is not.

Up three places, Charlie Puth’s “One Call Away” ascends to #8 on the strength of its ~4,145 weekly spins (+414).
