Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic” predictably makes a major splash on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

Credited with ~2,441 spins in the October 2-8 tracking week, the new Mars single takes #27 on this week’s listing.

Bottlenecked by the fact that “24K Magic” did not arrive until day six of the tracking week, the spin count was aided by “on the hour” first day airplay promotions.

Niall Horan’s “This Town” also enters the Top 30 this week. Up nine places from last week’s position, “This Town” takes #29 on the strength of its ~2,294 tracking week spins (+1,054).
