“Perfect” garnered ~6,685 spins (-87) within that window.

“Havana,” which had already enjoyed multi-week reigns at pop and rhythmic radio, becomes Cabello’s first career Hot AC #1.

Played ~5,777 times during the tracking period (-310), Imagine Dragons’ “Thunder” holds at #3.

Halsey’s “Bad At Love” stays at #4 with ~5,715 (-134), while a spin count of ~5,403 (+335) keeps Charlie Puth’s “How Long” in the #5 position.
