The Weeknd’s former pop radio #1 “Blinding Lights” is headed for the top spot on this week’s Mediabase hot adult contemporary chart.
The multi-format smash received 4,565 spins during the first five days of the May 10-16 tracking period. Up 6% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “Blinding Lights” at #1 on the building/real-time chart.
“Blinding Lights” does not hold a huge lead over Dua Lipa’s building #2 “Don’t Start Now” (4,508 spins), but it has the clear momentum advantage. Whereas “Blinding Lights” is up 6% from last week, “Don’t Start Now” is down 2%.
If they stay on similar trajectories as the week draws to a close, “Blinding Lights” will secure the official #1 position.
