“Shape Of You” extends its dominant reign as pop radio’s top song.

Played ~19,723 times during the March 26-April 1 tracking week, “Shape Of You” enjoys a seventh week in the #1 spot.

This week’s spin count tops last week’s mark by 295 plays. It tops that of the #2 song, meanwhile, by nearly 4000 spins.

Down one place, ZAYN & Taylor Swift’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” takes #3 with ~15,518 spins (-1,957). The Weeknd’s “I Feel It Coming (featuring Daft Punk)” dips one spot to #4 with ~15,214 tracking week plays (+265).

The Chainsmokers’ “Paris” returns to the Top 5 this week, rising one spot to #5. It received ~14,525 tracking week spins (+1,039).
