Earlier this year, Bruno Mars & Cardi B’s “Finesse” hit #1 at urban and rhythmic radio.

Barring a surprise crash, it should reach the apex of a third radio chart this week.

“Finesse” is pacing for #1 on the Mediabase pop radio airplay listing.

The song received 6,744 spins during the first three days of the March 18-24 tracking period. Up 6.9% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “Finesse” at #1 on Mediabase’s building chart.

As the building #2 (G-Eazy & Halsey’s “Him & I”) and #3 (NF’s “Let You Down”) songs are declining, neither represents a likely threat to “Finesse” this week.

Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey’s building #4 “The Middle” is quickly gaining ground (6,202 spins, +17.3% during the first three days of the week), but if the two songs maintain their current trajectories, “Finesse” will retain #1 through the close of tracking.

While Bruno Mars is no stranger to the top of the pop chart, “Finesse” would represent the first pop #1 for Cardi B.
