Selena Gomez’ “Kill Em With Kindness,” which reached the Top 40 on last week’s Mediabase pop airplay chart, will earn a Top 30 position this week.
The fourth “Revival” single received 2,114 pop radio plays during the first six days of the May 8-14 tracking week. The count, which tops last week’s mark by 122.8%, earns “KEWK” the #29 position on Mediabase’s building airplay chart.
Absent an imminent threat from below, “Kill Em With Kindness” should have no trouble retaining its position.
It should, in fact, rise by at least one spot on the final chart due to the fact that DNCE’s building #12 “Cake By The Ocean” is due to be removed as a recurrent this week.
“Kill Em With Kindness” would rise another spot in the even that Justin Timberlake’s building #11 “Can’t Stop The Feeling” pulls ahead of Justin Bieber’s building #10 “Love Yourself.” Bieber’s song will go recurrent if below the Top 10.
— Pop radio’s Top 30 should also welcome Desiigner’s “Panda” this week. The song, which was #31 on last week’s official chart, is currently #28 on this week’s building chart.
