Last week, they reached the Top 30 on Mediabase’s pop radio airplay chart.

This week, Rihanna’s “Needed Me” and KIIARA’s “Gold” are poised to enter the Top 25.

The former received 2,366 spins during the first six days of the July 3-9 tracking week. Up 24.6% from the count at this point last week, the tally positions “Needed Me” at #24 on the Mediabase building chart.

“Gold” is #25 on the building chart; it received 2,312 spins within the six-day window (+17.0%).

Given their respective rates of growth — and absence of imminent competition from below — both should be able to retain their spots through the close of tracking.
