Alec Benjamin’s “Let Me Down Slowly,” Drax Project & Hailee Steinfeld’s “Woke Up Late” Join Top 55 At Pop Radio

“Let Me Down Slowly” and “Woke Up Late” move into the Top 55.

Alec Benjamin’s “Let Me Down Slowly” and Drax Project’s “Woke Up Late (featuring Hailee Steinfeld)” are gaining traction at pop radio.

Both songs move into the Top 55 this week.

Played 289 times during the January 20-26 tracking period, “Let Me Down Slowly” ranks as the Mediabase pop panel’s #51 song. It was #61 last week.

While Mediabase only credits Benjamin for the song, it is worth noting that some stations are playing the Alessia Cara version.

“Woke Up Late” earns #55 on the strength of its 171 spins. The Hailee Steinfeld version did not arrive until this week, but the original was last week’s #81 song.
