The Weeknd now has three songs inside the Top 20 of the Mediabase rhythmic radio airplay chart.

The artist, who occupies #6 with “Starboy” and #12 with “I Feel It Coming,” takes #17 with “Party Monster.”

Up six places from last week’s position, “Party Monster” received ~1,760 spins during the January 1-7 tracking week. This week’s spin count bests last week’s by a healthy 280 plays.

“Party Monster” is one of two new additions to the Top 20. DJ Luke Nasty’s “OTW,” the other, rises five spots to #19. It received ~1,543 weekly plays (+69).

While it is not new to the Top 20, John Legend’s “Love Me Now” returns to that portion of the chart this week. It rises two spots to #20 on the strength of its ~1,413 spins (-200).
