During its initial radio run, Kelly Clarkson’s “Piece By Piece” peaked at #30 on the Mediabase hot adult contemporary airplay chart.

Now in a second run fueled by an epic “American Idol” performance, “Piece By Piece” is up to #23 on the official chart.

The song, which rises ten places from last week’s position, received ~1,204 spins during the March 6-12 tracking week (+639).

It is one of two additions to the Top 25; Meghan Trainor’s “NO,” the other, soars from #29 to #16.

The Top 30 also welcomes two new additions: Mike Posner’s “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” and Andra Day’s “Rise Up”**.

Up five places, “Pill” takes #29 on the strength of ~805 weekly spins (+313).

“Rise Up,” which was #31 last week, takes #30 on this week’s chart. It received ~727 spins during the official tracking week (+101).

**Editor’s Note: While “Rise Up” initially appeared at #30 on last week’s published chart, a midweek revision knocked it down to #31.
