Rihanna’s “Love On The Brain” and Shawn Mendes’ “Mercy” are set to earn Top 20 positions on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

“LOTB” received 2,666 spins during the first six days of the November 6-12 tracking week. Up 35.4% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots Rihanna’s tune at #20 on Mediabase’s building chart.

“Mercy,” which received 2,599 spins within that window (+42.6%), is currently #21 on the building chart.

Both, however, should earn Top 20 rankings on the official chart. Kiiara’s building #11 “Gold” will be removed as a recurrent as long as it stays below #10 when the chart goes final (it almost certainly will). Its removal will lift “Love On The Brain” and “Mercy” by one position, thus ensuring both are in the Top 20 on the final chart.
