Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands” another week atop the Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

Played 17,684 times during the September 24-30 tracking week (-419), “Slow Hands” spends a second week at #1.

Up one place, Liam Payne’s “Strip That Down (featuring Quavo)” grabs #2 with 17,527 tracking week spins (+955). Barring a major twist of fate, it should reach #1 next week.

That, of course, means a One Direction member is on track to replace another One Direction member atop the chart.

Charlie Puth’s “Attention” drops one place to #3 with 15,365 spins (-1,465).

Credited with 14,099 spins (+627), Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” rises one place to #4.

Shawn Mendes’ “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” concurrently falls one spot to #5. It received 12,808 spins (-1,706).
