Ben Rector’s “Brand New” Headed For Hot AC Radio’s Top 10

Ben Rector’s “Brand New” is set to enter the Top 10 on this week’s Mediabase hot adult contemporary airplay chart.

The single received 2,604 spins during the first five days of the June 12-18 tracking week. Up 6.1% from the count at this point last week, the tally positions “Brand New” at #10 on Mediabase’s building chart.

Absent an imminent threat from below, “Brand New” should have no difficulty retaining its Top 10 position through the close of tracking.

“Brand New” is also nearing the Top 10 at the adult contemporary format. It is inside the Top 40 at pop.
