During Tuesday’s live stream, Taylor Swift made it clear that new track “The Archer” was not an official radio single.

Despite that reality, a few pop stations opted to play the song following its release.

According to Mediabase, Nashville’s The River ranked as the top opening day supporter. The station had played “The Archer” 4 times by the close of Tuesday.

Oklahoma City’s KJ103 had offered 3 spins by the end of Tuesday, while Orlando’s XL 106.7, Trenton’s 94.5 PST and SiriusXM Hits 1 had each played the song twice.

“The Archer” will appear alongside official radio single “You Need To Calm Down” and previous radio single “ME!” on Swift’s new album “Lover.” The studio LP, Swift’s seventh, arrives on August 23.
