In soaring from #61-#38, Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” is the week’s highest ranking addition to the Top 50 at pop radio.

It is not the week’s only addition. Singles by Pitbull, Belly, and twenty one pilots also crack the Top 50 this week.

Pitbull’s new “Messin’ Around (featuring Enrique Iglesias),” which did not launch until the sixth day of the official tracking week, officially ranks as the Mediabase pop panel’s #43 song.

The song amassed 765 spins within the confines of the April 3-9 tracking week. It is worth noting that while “Messin’ Around” did not emerge until very late in the week, it did receive promotional airplay on its first day of release.

Belly’s rhythmic radio hit “Might Not (featuring The Weeknd)” also earns a Top 50 position at pop. Up nine places, it takes #47 on the strength of 536 weekly spins (+246).

Twenty One Pilots’ “Ride” directly follows at #48. The song, which was #52 last week, received 535 spins this week (+196).
