Meghan Trainor’s “NO,” Ben Rector’s “Brand New” Join Hot AC Radio’s Top 20

Meghan Trainor [CBS]

Last week, Meghan Trainor’s “NO” debuted at #29 on Mediabase’s hot adult contemporary airplay chart.

This week, it roars into the Top 20.

Spun ~1,929 times during the March 6-12 tracking week, “NO” rockets thirteen places to #16 on the listing.

Aided by the fact that it was only available for the last day-and-a-half of the previous tracking week, “NO” also ranks as this week’s greatest weekly airplay gainer. This week’s spin count bests last week’s by a mammoth 1,255.

“NO” is one of two additions to the weekly Top 20.

Ben Rector’s “Brand New,” the other, rises two places to #20. It received ~1,485 weekly spins (+47).
