Camila Cabello is about to score her second pop radio #1 — and first outside of Fifth Harmony.

“Bad Things,” her collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly, is on pace to comfortably top this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

The song received 7,294 spins during the first three days of the January 29-February 4 tracking week. Up 7.0% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “Bad Things” at #1 on Mediabase’s building chart.

It faces no obvious threat from below and should thus endure no difficulty retaining its position through the close of tracking.

“Bad Things” will seize the throne from Alessia Cara’s “Scars To Your Beautiful,” which has spent the past two weeks at #1. “Scars” is #2 on the building chart; it received 7,148 spins (-4.3%) during the week’s first three days.

Cabello previously reached #1 as part of Fifth Harmony’s smash “Work From Home (featuring Ty Dolla $ign).”
