Ariana Grande’s “Into You,” Twenty One Pilots’ “Heathens” Blast Into Hot AC Radio’s Top 30

Ariana Grande [ABC]

Last week, Ariana Grande’s “Into You” and twenty one pilots’ “Heathens” made their first appearances inside the Top 40 at hot adult contemporary radio.

This week, they soar into the Top 30 on Mediabase’s official Hot AC airplay chart.

Spun ~612 times during the August 14-20 tracking period (+219), “Into You” jumps twelve places to a new peak of #27.

“Heathens” follows at #29. The song, which was #40 last week, received ~570 spins this week (+184).

— Other notes:

*Leon’s “Tired Of Talking” appeared at #32 on last week’s official Mediabase Hot AC chart, but a mid-week revision boosted it to #30. So while it rises to #28 on this week’s chart, it does not technically count as a new addition to the Top 30.

*The Lumineers’ “Ophelia,” on the other hand, does count as a Top 30 newcomer. The crossover alternative hit, which originally appeared at #30 on last week’s chart, was dropped to #32 following the mid-week data revision. It rises to #30 on this week’s chart.
