Julia Michaels’ “Issues” continues to climb at pop radio.

The singer-songwriter’s breakthrough hit is poised to reach the Top 5 on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

“Issues” received 3,814 spins during the first two days of the June 18-24 tracking week. Up 4.8% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “Issues” at #4 on Mediabase’s building chart.

It only holds a slight lead over Kygo x Selena Gomez’ building #5 “It Ain’t Me” (3,803 spins), but it had the clear momentum advantage. Whereas “Issues” is up 4.8% from the same-time-last-week mark, “It Ain’t Me” is down 12.7%. “Issues” should thus be able to pull comfortably ahead by the close of tracking.

“Issues,” more notably, is in no danger of falling below #5. There are no other imminent threats from below.
