“You Are The Reason” officially enters the Top 40 at hot adult contemporary radio.

Calum Scott - You Are The Reason | Capitol

One song makes its debut on this week’s edition of the Mediabase hot adult contemporary radio chart.

Calum Scott’s “You Are The Reason” is that song.

“You Are The Reason,” which was below last week’s chart at #45, enters this week’s Top 40 at #37.

“You Are The Reason” received 291 spins during the August 12-18 tracking period, besting last week’s mark by 109 spins.

While Mediabase solely credits Calum Scott, it is worth noting that Capitol also made the Leona Lewis duet version available to programmers. Airplay from both versions counts toward the song’s chart position.

— As “You Are The Reason” enters the Top 40, Bebe Rexha’s “I’m A Mess” returns to the region. The song rises two places to #39 on this week’s chart.
