Two weeks ago, Taylor Swift’s “…Ready For It?” and Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” concurrently reached the Top 30 at pop radio.

Last week, they entered the Top 25.

This week, they are set to claim Top 20 positions on the Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

“Ready For It” received 2,421 spins during the first four days of the September 24-30 tracking week. Up 24.9% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “Ready For It” at #20 on Mediabase’s building chart.

“New Rules” follows at #21; it received 1,997 spins during the tracking week’s first four days (+31.2%).

Imagine Dragons’ building #11 is set to be removed as a recurrent this week, which means all lower-ranked songs will be lifted by one place on the final chart. “Ready For It” is thus truly trending as the #19 song, while “New Rules” should really be viewed as #20.

While Imagine Dragons’ building #24 “Thunder” is accelerating at a far faster rate than “Ready For It” and “New Rules” (1,540 spins, +89%), it will doubtfully be able to close the gap by the end of tracking. Facing no other threats, “Ready For It” and “New Rules” should thus have no trouble claiming Top 20 positions on the official chart.

Should the week end as planned, “New Rules” will be Dua Lipa’s first Top 20 hit at US pop radio.
