Lady Gaga’s new “Perfect Illusion” predictably makes a big splash on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

The new single debuts at #29 on this week’s listing. It received ~1,845 spins during the September 4-10 tracking period.

Bottlenecked by the fact that it did not arrive until late on the fifth day of the tracking week, “Perfect Illusion” benefited from “on the hour” iHeartMedia airplay on release day.

“Perfect Illusion” is one of three additions to the Top 30; Tinie Tempah’s “Girls Like (featuring Zara Larsson)” and Nicky Jam’s “Hasta El Amanecer” also enter that region.
