In rising from #31 to #21, Kygo x Selena Gomez’ “It Ain’t Me” represents the highest-charting addition to the Top 30 at pop radio.

It is not the only addition. Linkin Park’s “Heavy (featuring kiiara),” Big Sean’s “Bounce Back,” and Sabrina Carpenter’s “Thumbs” also enter that region of the chart.

“Heavy,” which was below last week’s chart at #48, rockets to #26 this week. It received 2,318 spins during the February 19-25 tracking period, besting last week’s count by 1,785. Only Kygo x Selena Gomez’ “It Ain’t Me” (+1,924) enjoyed a greater weekly gain.

Up six places, “Bounce Back” earns #28 on this week’s listing. The multi-format hit received 2,030 pop spins this week (+545).

Played 1,709 times during the tracking week (+108), “Thumbs” rises three spots to #30.
