Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” Headed For Pop Radio’s Top 50

Rihanna (ABC)

Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better,” which officially ranked as last week’s #61 song at pop radio, is on track to land within the Top 50 this week.

The latest “ANTI” single received 233 spins during the first three days of the April 3-9 tracking week. The count slots “Kiss It Better” at #49 on Mediabase’s building airplay chart.

Given its rate of increase, it should have no trouble maintaining its Top 50 position as the week progresses. The real question is how deeply into the Top 50 it will be when the tracking week concludes.

“Kiss It Better” is the pop follow-up to “Work (featuring Drake),” which peaked inside the Top 10 (but is declining now that a follow-up was made available).
