Halsey’s “Now Or Never” is poised to earn a Top 5 position on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

The lead “hopeless fountain kingdom” single received 5,223 spins during the first three days of the June 25-July 1 tracking week. Up 10.2% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “Now Or Never” at #5 on Mediabase’s building chart.

“Now Or Never” faces no imminent threat from below and should thus have no trouble retaining its Top 5 position through the close of tracking.

It will follow The Chainsmokers’ “Closer (featuring Halsey)” in becoming the artist’s second Top 5 hit at pop radio. It will be her first such hit as a lead/solo artist.
