Only one song makes its first Top 40 appearance on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

Taylor Swift’s “Delicate” is that song.

The “reputation” single, which was below last week’s chart at #48, enters this week’s listing at #36.

“Delicate” received 1,350 spins during the March 11-17 tracking period. This week’s count tops last week’s mark by 1,059 spins.

The gain represents the pop format’s fifth-greatest for the week. Only Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey’s “The Middle” (+1,876), Meghan Trainor’s “No Excuses” (+1,335), Bebe Rexha’s “Meant To Be (featuring Florida Georgia Line)” (+1,129), and Drake’s “God’s Plan” (+1,088) enjoyed bigger increases.

— “Delicate” makes an even bigger debut at hot adult contemporary radio. It enters that format’s chart at #26.
