“No Tears Left To Cry” and “God is a woman,” the official singles from Ariana Grande’s new “Sweetener” album, appear at #7 and #15, respectively, on this week’s Mediabase pop radio chart.

Several album tracks, meanwhile, boast Top 60 positions at the format.

Even though the album did not arrive until the sixth day of the August 12-18 tracking period, album standout “breathin” amassed 324 spins. The count positions “breathin” as the Mediabase pop panel’s #52 song.

Fellow album track “Everytime,” which received 219 spins, follows at #57.

“Sweetener” takes #58 with 216 spins, while a play count of 209 slots “R.E.M.” at #59.

The clear majority of the spins — particularly for “Everytime,” “Sweetener,” and “R.E.M.” — came from the iHeartMedia network. iHeart stations celebrated the release of “Sweetener” by giving the tracks ample opening weekend airplay.
