Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” keeps the throne on this week’s edition of the Mediabase hot adult contemporary airplay chart.

The ballad, which received ~6,249 tracking period plays (-11), is celebrating a tenth, non-consecutive week on top.

Up one place, MAX’s “Lights Down Low (featuring gnash)” earns the runner-up spot. “Lights Down Low” received ~6,081 tracking period plays (+364).

Charlie Puth’s “How Long,” which at one point seemed like a potential Hot AC #1, drops one spot to #3 on this week’s chart. It received ~5,588 spins.

The count trails last week’s mark by a substantial 387 plays, confirming that “How Long” is on the way down at the format.

Bebe Rexha’s “Meant To Be (featuring Florida Georgia Line)” rises one spot to #4 with ~5,383 spins (+611), while a play count of ~5,085 (+127) drops P!nk’s “Beautiful Trauma” one place to #5.
