Shawn Mendes’ “If I Can’t Have You” Officially Reaches #1 At Hot AC Radio

Shawn Mendes has the #1 song at two different formats this week.

As “Señorita (with Camila Cabello)” reaches #1 at pop radio, another Shawn Mendes single climbs to #1 on the Mediabase hot adult contemporary chart.

“If I Can’t Have You,” that song, earns #1 on the strength of its 6,549 tracking period spins (+483). It was last week’s #3 song.

“If I Can’t Have You” seizes the throne from Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber’s “I Don’t Care,” which falls to #2 after a five-week stint at #1. The collaboration received 6,515 spins during the August 18-24 tracking period, trailing last week’s mark by 204.

Down one place, Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker” takes #3. Panic! At The Disco’s “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” holds at #4, and Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved” spends another week at #5.
