Halsey’s “Without Me” came within striking distance this week, but Panic! At The Disco’s “High Hopes” ultimately ranked as hot adult contemporary radio’s most played song for the February 24-March 2 tracking period.

It, accordingly, claims #1 on a 14th consecutive Mediabase Hot AC chart.

“High Hopes” keeps its throne thanks to the ~6,687 spins it received during the tracking period. The count trails last week’s mark by 136 but keeps “High Hopes” 180 spins above “Without Me.”

Over the past several months, the Hot AC format has been home to two 14-week reigns. Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You (featuring Cardi B)” also ruled for that length in late 2018.

The aforementioned “Without Me” holds at #2 this week, while Marshmello & Bastille’s “Happier” stays put at #3. Dean Lewis’ “Be Alright” spends another week at #4, while Benny Blanco, Halsey & Khalid’s “Eastside” jumps two spots to #5.
