Taylor Swift’s “Delicate” was #3 on last week’s Mediabase hot adult contemporary radio chart.

It soars to #1 on this week’s listing.

“Delicate” captures the throne on the strength of its ~6,287 tracking period plays. This week’s count tops last week’s mark by a healthy 604 spins.

Only Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You (featuring Cardi B)” (+685) enjoyed a greater weekly gain.

“Delicate” is the fourth single from Swift’s multi-platinum “reputation” album — and the first to reach #1 on the Hot AC chart.

Played ~6,042 times during the June 24-30 tracking period (-146), Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey’s “The Middle” holds at #2.

Camila Cabello’s “Never Be The Same” falls two spots to #3 with ~5,828 spins (-492), while Shawn Mendes’ “In My Blood” rises one place to #4 with ~5,622 (+197).

Down one place, Imagine Dragons’ “Whatever It Takes” takes #5 with ~5,402 (-75).
