Making good on the early-week projection, Kelly Clarkson’s “Piece By Piece” ascends into the Top 10 on this week’s Mediabase hot adult contemporary airplay chart.
Up two places, “Piece By Piece” takes #10 thanks to the ~3,440 spins the song received during the April 10-16 tracking period. This week’s count bests last week’s by 274.
During its initial run, which spanned late 2015 and early 2016, Piece By Piece” peaked at #30 on the Hot AC airplay chart. It was revived thanks to Kelly Clarkson’s stunning performance on the February 25 edition of “American Idol.”
The performance prompted an immediate surge in sales, which rocketed “Piece By Piece” into the Top 10 of the all-encompassing Billboard Hot 100. It also led to a renewed radio push.
While the push did not stick at pop radio, it has clearly resonated at the Hot AC (Top 10) and AC formats (nearly Top 10).
