The week is still very young, but it already looks quite bright for Khalid’s “Better.” The song appears headed for #1 on the Mediabase rhythmic radio chart.

“Better” received 748 spins Sunday, which marked the start of the February 3-9 tracking period. Up 16.0% from last Sunday’s mark, the figure slots “Better” at #1 on the building/real-time chart.

“Better” may not be able to sustain a 16.0% increase all week, but insofar as its closest competitors (“Sunflower” | 713 spins, -10%; and “ZEZE” | 693 spins, -9%) are both decelerating, it should be able to maintain its lead through the close of tracking.

“Better” is also charting at pop radio, where it occupies a Top 15 position.
