While it did not receive the big opening support afforded to singles like “PILLOWTALK,” “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” or “Still Got Time,” ZAYN’s new “Let Me” did receive some attention at pop radio.

According to Mediabase, its biggest opening day support came from SiriusXM Hits 1. The satellite station had played “Let Me” 14 times by the close of Thursday.

Chicago’s B96 also established itself as a top early supporter with 11 spins.

Scranton’s 97BHT, Space Coast’s WA1A, Nashville’s i106.7, Tucson’s 93.7 KRQ, and Orlando’s XL1067 each offered four opening day spins. Numerous other pop stations provided between 1 and 3 plays.

“Let Me,” which premiered at 8AM EDT Thursday morning, is #8 on the US iTunes sales chart as of 10:45AM Friday. The music video starring ZAYN, Steven Bauer and Sofia Jamora boasts 7 million views.
