The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” Spends 6th Week As Pop Radio’s #1 Song, 8th Week As Hot AC Radio’s Leader

“Blinding Lights” retains #1 on both radio charts.

Further solidifying its “smash” status with each passing week, The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” extends its reigns at both pop and hot adult contemporary radio. The single spends a sixth (non-consecutive) week at #1 on the Mediabase pop chart, while notching an 8th consecutive week atop the Hot AC listing.

— “Blinding Lights” tops this week’s pop chart thanks to the 17,278 spins it received during the June 28-July 4 tracking period. This week’s count trails last week’s mark by 305 but keeps “Blinding Lights” ahead of the competition.

Trevor Daniel’s “Falling” moves up two spots to #2 this week, while Doja Cat’s “Say So” stays at #3. Justin Bieber’s “Intentions (featuring Quavo)” slides two rungs to #4, and Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart” advances one place to #5.

— The Weeknd’s smash meanwhile keeps its Hot AC throne on the strength of 6,360 tracking week spins (-83).

Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” stays at #2, and Harry Styles’ “Adore You” remains at #3. “Intentions” spends another week at #4, and Lewis Capaldi’s “Before You Go” rises one spot to #5.
