Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic” predictably makes a big splash on this week’s Mediabase hot adult contemporary airplay chart.

Spun 681 times during the October 2-8 tracking period, Mars’ new single earns #32 on this week’s Hot AC chart.

While limited by the fact that it did not arrive until the sixth day of the tracking week, “24K Magic” benefited from “on the hour” first day airplay promotions.

“24K Magic” is one of two new additions to Hot AC’s Top 40. Emeli Sande’s “Hurts,” the other, grabs #39.

“Hurts,” which was below the chart at #46 last week, received 391 spins this week (+129).
