Powered by the week’s second-greatest airplay gain, Halsey’s “Now Or Never” blasts into the Top 30 on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

Up twelve places, the lead “Hopeless Fountain Kingdom” single earns #26 on the listing. It received 2,806 spins during the April 9-15 tracking week.

This week’s spin count bests last week’s by a healthy 1,758 plays. Only Harry Styles’ “Sign Of The Times” (+1,992) enjoyed a greater weekly gain at pop radio.

“Now Or Never” is one of two additions to this week’s Top 30. Ed Sheeran’s “Castle On The Hill,” the other, rises six spots to #30.

Positioned as the US radio follow-up to Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” (which is still #1 at pop), “Castle” received 2,047 tracking week spins (+954).
