Billie Eilish’s former alternative and pop radio #1 “bad guy” has also been faring well at the hot adult contemporary format.

It will enter the Top 10 on this week’s Mediabase hot adult contemporary radio chart.

“bad guy” received 2,431 spins during the first five days of the August 25-31 tracking period. Up 9% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “bad guy” at #9 on Mediabase’s building/real-time Hot AC chart.

As it does not face an imminent threat from below (and certainly not two of them), “bad guy” will have no trouble retaining its Top 10 position through the close of tracking.

It will become the artist’s first Top 10 hit at the format.
