Kanye West’s “Fade,” Niall Horan’s “This Town” Enter Pop Radio’s Top 40

Kanye West’s latest “The Life Of Pablo” single and Niall Horan’s debut solo release crack the Top 40 on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

Spun 1,267 times during the September 25-October 1 tracking week (+495), West’s “Fade” rises five places to #37.

Horan’s “This Town” directly follows at #38. The song garnered 1,240 spins during the official tracking week.

Bottlenecked by the fact that it did not arrive until the fifth day of the tracking week, “This Town” benefited from “on the hour” first day airplay.
