As it moves into the Top 3 at pop radio, ZAYN & Taylor Swift’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” earns a Top 5 position on the Mediabase hot adult contemporary chart.

Played ~4,826 times during the February 12-18 tracking week, “IDWLF” rises one spot to #5 on the listing.

This week’s spin count bests last week’s by a healthy 442 spins. Only Katy Perry’s “Chained To The Rhythm (featuring Skip Marley)” (+1,552) and Maroon 5’s “Cold (featuring Future)” (+1,220) posted greater weekly spin counts, and both benefited from being new releases.

“IDWLF,” which appears on the chart-topping “Fifty Shades Darker” soundtrack, is the only addition to this week’s Top 5.

Alessia Cara’s “Scars To Your Beautiful” is #1 on this week’s Hot AC listing.
