Songs By Sam Smith & Normani, Ariana Grande, Ava Max Make Pop Radio’s Top 5

“Dancing With A Stranger,” “break up with your girlfriend,” and “Sweet But Psycho” earn Top 5 positions.

The uppermost region of this week’s Mediabase pop radio chart features several shakeups.

In addition to a new #1 song in Jonas Brother’s “Sucker,” the chart welcomes three new additions to its Top 5.

Sam Smith & Normani’s “Dancing With A Stranger” rises four places to #3, while Ariana Grande’s “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored” ascends four spots to #4. Ava Max’s “Sweet But Psycho” enjoys a one-place lift from last week’s published position to #5**.

“Dancing With A Stranger” received ~14,844 spins during the April 14-20 tracking period, besting last week’s count by 1,811.

“break up with your girlfriend” posted a tracking period play count of ~13,967 (+1,405). “Sweet But Psycho” amassed ~13,920 tracking week spins (+802).

**Editor’s Note: When last week’s chart went to print, Ava Max’s “Sweet But Psycho” was listed at #6. Mediabase later revised the chart, moving “Sweet But Psycho” up to #5. It technically, therefore, reached the Top 5 last week.
