Despite not launching until the sixth day of the December 4-10 tracking week, ZAYN & Taylor Swift’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” debuts comfortably inside the Top 30 at pop radio.

Credited with ~1,906 tracking week spins, the “Fifty Shades Darker” single lands at #26 on this week’s Mediabase pop radio chart.

Bottlenecked by its late-week arrival, “IDWLF” benefited from “on the hour” first day airplay across the iHeartMedia network.

“IDWLF” is one of four additions to the Top 30 this week. As previously reported, The Weeknd’s “I Feel It Coming (featuring Daft Punk)” rockets from #38 to #24.

Hey Violet’s “Guys My Age” and Lukas Graham’s “You’re Not There” also join the Top 30.

Up four places, “Guys My Age” takes #27 on the strength of its ~1,865 tracking period plays (+302). “You’re Not There” concurrently rises three spots to #30; it received ~1,704 spins during the official tracking week (+429).
