Last week, Liam Payne’s “Strip That Down (featuring Quavo)” reached #1 on the Billboard Pop Songs Chart.

This week, it improves to #1 on the corresponding (and more authoritative) Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

Up one place from last week’s position, “Strip That Down” takes #1 on the strength of its ~17,887 tracking period spins. This week’s count tops last week’s mark by 347.

Liam Payne becomes the third One Direction original to score a #1 hit at pop radio. ZAYN hit the chart’s apex with his debut single “PILLOWTALK,” while Niall Horan had spent the past two weeks at #1 with “Slow Hands.”

Yes, that means Payne replaces another One Direction member atop the chart.

Horan’s single, which received ~15,785 spins during the October 1-7 tracking week (-1,911), falls to #2 this week.

Charlie Puth’s “Attention” holds at #3 with ~14,586 spins (-794), while Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” holds at #4 with ~14,166 (+59).

Credited with ~13,906 spins (+1,610), Portugal. The Man’s “Feel It Still” rises one spot to #5.
