A slight week-over-week airplay loss does not prevent Benny Blanco, Halsey & Khalid’s “Eastside” from retaining the throne at hot adult contemporary radio.

Played ~6,081 times during the April 7-13 tracking period, “Eastside” claims #1 on a third consecutive Mediabase Hot AC chart. This week’s spin count trails last week’s mark by 106 but keeps “Eastside” ahead of the competition.

The closest competition again comes from Halsey’s own “Without Me,” which stays at #2 on the strength of its ~5,723 spins.

Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow” rises two spots to #3, while Panic! At The Disco’s “High Hopes” drops one place to #4. Up one place, Ellie Goulding & Diplo’s “Close To Me (featuring Swae Lee)” earns #5.
