Living up to the projection, Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” keeps #1 on this week’s Mediabase pop radio chart.

Played ~18,597 times during the September 6-12 tracking period, “Watermelon Sugar” secures a seventh week at #1. The spin count trails last week’s mark by 197 spins but keeps the Harry Styles tune more than 800 plays ahead of the competition.

In reaching a seventh week at #1, “Watermelon Sugar” ties The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” for the longest total reign of 2020 (Post Malone’s “Circles” also completed a seven-week reign in 2020, but it first reached #1 in 2019).

“Watermelon Sugar,” moreover, secures the year’s longest consecutive streak at #1. Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” previously held the distinction with six straight weeks on top.

Lewis Capaldi’s “Before You Go” again provides the closest competition, holding at #2 with ~17,738 spins (+892).

Jawsh 685 & Jason Derulo’S “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” rises one spot to #3, while the enduring “Blinding Lights” slides just one spot to #4. DaBaby’s “ROCKSTAR (featuring Roddy Ricch)” returns to the Top 5, rising one spot to #5.
