Benny Blanco, Halsey & Khalid’s “Eastside” Headed For #1 At Pop Radio

“Eastside” is expected to dethrone “Without Me” on this week’s chart.

A Halsey song is set to dethrone a Halsey song on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

Benny Blanco, Halsey & Khalid’s “Eastside,” which was #2 on last week’s official chart, is on track to claim #1 this week. It will replace Halsey’s own “Without Me,” which has spent four weeks in the pinnacle position.

“Eastside” received 13,091 spins during the first five days of the February 17-23 tracking period. Up 1.9% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “Eastside” at #1 on Mediabase’s building chart.

“Without Me” is currently #2 on the building chart; it received 13,053 spins during the aforementioned five-day window (-1.4%).

With an existing edge and a momentum advantage, “Eastside” should be able to retain its #1 position through the close of tracking.
