Based on airplay attained during the January 15-21 tracking week, singles by Broods and Ed Sheeran reach the Top 55 at US hot adult contemporary radio.

Credited with 80 tracking period spins, Broods’ “Heartlines” ranks as the Mediabase Hot AC panel’s #51 song. It was #65 last week.

“Castle On The Hill” concurrently rises four places to #52. It also received 80 spins but loses the tiebreaker due to a smaller weekly airplay gain.

“Castle” earns its Top 55 position as “Shape Of You,” Sheeran’s other new release, moves into the format’s Top 10.
