Evidenced by its strong positions on the US iTunes and Spotify charts, Camila Cabello’s “Havana (featuring Young Thug)” is resonating with consumers.

It is also receiving a great response from pop radio listeners.

The latest Mediabase callout report reveals a very positive reaction to the global smash.

Based on a survey of pop radio audience members, the report reveals that “Havana” is receiving a positive reaction from 68.3% of listeners, a negative reaction from 16.4% and thus a “net positive” score of 51.9%.

A healthy 26.8% of listeners, meanwhile, identify “Havana” as a “favorite.”

Of the 18 songs featured in this week’s report, “Havana” boasts the second-best positive score (tied with Charlie Puth’s “Attention,” below only Imagine Dragons’ “Thunder”), second-best (lowest) negative score (ranking only below Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect”) and second-best net positive score (below only “Thunder”).

Its “favorite” rating is the sixth-highest.

Strong callouts are nothing new for Camila Cabello. “Bad Things,” her collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly, was one of the best-scoring songs during its run in late 2016/early 2017.

Buoyed by the week’s greatest airplay gain, “Havana” will enter the Top 3 on this week’s Mediabase pop chart.
