The latest Mediabase/Critical Mass Media callout report just arrived, and it suggests that listeners are sour on Bruno Mars’ “Versace On The Floor.”
The report, which is based on a survey of pop radio listeners, notes that “Versace” has a positive reaction from 46.3% of listeners, a negative reaction from 29.1% of listeners and thus a “net positive” score of 17.2%.
It received a “favorite” rating from 11.9%.
Of the 20 songs featured in this week’s report, “Versace” holds the lowest positive and net positive scores. It has the second-lowest favorite rating (above only Logic’s “1-800-273-8255”) and the highest (worst) negative score.
Down to #18 on Mediabase’s building pop radio airplay chart, “Versace On The Floor” is the third single from Mars’ “24K Magic” album.
Predecessor “That’s What I Like” received decent callouts during the height of its run — and reached #1 on the Mediabase pop chart.
Lead single “24K Magic” was one of the worst-scoring songs during its run (though its numbers were better than those for “Versace”). It reached the Top 5 — but missed #1 — on the airplay chart.
