Ariana Grande’s “imagine” did not launch until the sixth day of the December 9-15 radio tracking week. It, moreover, has not been confirmed as an official radio single.
Those realities did not, however, prevent the song from amassing a healthy amount of pop radio airplay.
Played 90 times during the aforementioned tracking period, “imagine” ranks as the Mediabase pop panel’s #72 song.
The song, which is set to appear on Grande’s forthcoming fifth studio album, received airplay from 18 Mediabase-monitored pop stations this week. Responsible for 14 of this week’s spins, Cleveland’s 96.5 KISS FM ranks as the top early supporter.
In addition to the #72 song in “imagine,” Grande has the pop format’s #2 song in “breathin” and #6 song in “thank u, next.”
