Although the race got slightly tighter this week, Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” remains the clear-cut #1 song at pop radio.

Played ~18,781 times during the August 30-September 5 tracking period, “Watermelon Sugar” earns a sixth week atop the Mediabase pop chart. This week’s spin count trails last week’s mark by 294 but still keeps the Styles tune nearly 2000 spins ahead of the competition.

Lewis Capaldi’s “Before You Go,” again the #2 song, received ~16,845 tracking period plays (+580). As noted, the “Watermelon Sugar” lead is smaller than it has been in a few weeks – but obviously still quite comfortable.

The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” holds at #4, while Jawsh 685 & Jason Derulo’s “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” jumps two places to #4. Down one spot, Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart” takes #5.
