While the original version of Bazzi’s “Beautiful” recently hit the Top 30 at rhythmic radio, it had not yet established itself as a pop radio force. Only a handful of stations — most notably, 102.7 Da Bomb in Honolulu and Power 96 in Miami — were providing airplay.
The release of a remix featuring Camila Cabello seems to have spurred some additional interest at the pop format.
Chicago’s B96 is leading the way among new supporters. The station, which has proven supportive of both artists in the past, has played the song 7 times this week (it did not play the song once last week).
Other noteworthy new supporters include Madison’s Z104 (5 spins), Miami’s Y100 (5 spins) and Detroit’s 98.7 AMP (4 spins).
As Atlantic’s promotional team will focus on the new version moving forward, the song’s Mediabase chart entry has been updated to list Camila Cabello.
