OneRepublic, DNCE, KIIARA Headed For Pop Radio’s Top 40

Singles by OneRepublic, DNCE, and KIIARA are on track to reach the Top 40 on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

Tryon’s “Somebody To Love Me” may also get there.

OneRepublic’s new “Wherever I Go” received 945 spins during the first five days of the May 22-28 tracking week. Up 110.0% from the count at the same time last week, the tally slots “Wherever I Go” at #36 on Mediabase’s building chart.

DNCE’s “Toothbrush” directly follows at #37 on building. It received 918 spins during the first five days of the week (+203.0%).

The two may change positions before the week concludes — “Toothbrush” seems to have more momentum — but neither will have any trouble remaining inside the Top 40.

KIIARA’s “Gold” also appears safe in its bid for a Top 40 position. Spun 684 times during the week’s first five days (+35.2%), it is currently #39 on the building chart. With only two days remaining, it will doubtfully lose its Top 40 placement.

With Selena Gomez’ building #22 “Hands To Myself” due to be removed as a recurrent this week, all songs below its position on the building chart will be bumped up by one spot on the final chart. That — as well as the decline of Belly’s building #40 “Might Not (featuring The Weeknd)” (669 spins, -9.2%) — may allow Tryon’s “Somebody To Love Me” to enter the Top 40.

“Somebody” is currently #41 on building with 646 spins (+8.2%), and it should be able to surpass “Might Not” before week’s end. While songs like Ben Rector’s building #44 “Brand New” (576, +75.6%), ZAYN’s building #45 “Like I Would” (556, +44.8%) and Charlie Puth’s building #46 “We Don’t Talk Anymore (featuring Selena Gomez)” (528, +170.8%) are all rising much faster, they may not be able to overtake “Somebody To Love Me” before the week concludes.
