Panic! At The Disco’s multi-format smash “High Hopes” is on track to reach #1 on this week’s Mediabase alternative radio chart. It is also trending for a Top 5 position at hot adult contemporary and a Top 10 position at pop radio.

“High Hopes” received 3,283 alternative spins during the first six days of the November 4-10 tracking period. Up 9% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “High Hopes” at #1 on the building/real-time chart.

“High Hopes” does not hold a huge advantage over Marshmello & Bastille’s “Happier” (3,199 spins, +5%), but it should be able to keep its lead as the chart goes final.

— The song meanwhile received 4,153 Hot AC spins during the aforementioned six-day window, besting last week’s mark by 7%. While the count is only enough for #6 on the building Hot AC chart, “High Hopes” should be able to leapfrog Lauv’s fading “I Like Me Better” (#5, 4,167 spins, -3%) by the close of tracking.

— “High Hopes” holds #10 on the building pop chart with 9,306 spins (+26%). As it does not face a clear threat from below, it should close the week in that position.
