Shawn Mendes’ “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” and Imagine Dragons’ “Believer” are poised to join the Top 10 on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

“There’s Nothing” received 6,221 spins during the first four days of the July 2-8 tracking week. Up 8.3% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots Mendes’ tune at #8 on Mediabase’s building chart.

“Believer” is meanwhile positioned at #10 on the building chart. It received 6,116 spins during the aforementioned four day period, besting the same-time-last-week mark by 7.0%.

Neither song is in danger of falling out of the Top 10 by the close of tracking. The only question is exactly where within the Top 10 the two songs will land.

With Bruno Mars’ building #6 “That’s What I Like” (6,408 spins, -6.2%) and Kygo x Selena Gomez’ building #7 “It Ain’t Me” (6,251, -6.7%) fading, the Mendes and Dragons songs could easily move ahead by the end of the week.

Ed Sheeran’s building #9 “Castle On The Hill” (6,154, +2.5%) will also contend for one of the spots in the #6-#10 territory.
