Selena Gomez’ “Kill Em With Kindness” Expected To Reach Pop Radio’s Top 40

The fourth single from Selena Gomez’ “Revival” has a good chance of reaching the Top 40 on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

Gomez’ “Kill Em With Kindness” received 714 spins during the first five days of the May 1-7 tracking week. Up 240.0% from the count at this point last week, the tally positions “Kindness” at #40 on the Mediabase building chart.

While “Kindness” will likely be overtaken by Justin Timberlake’s new “Can’t Stop The Feeling” before the week ends, it is due to receive a one-place bump thanks to Flo Rida’s “My House” going recurrent. As long as it is #41 on the week’s last building chart, it will be in the Top 40 on the official weekly chart.

“Kill Em With Kindness” is the follow-up to three straight #1 pop radio hits.
