The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” remains where it has spent the better part of the past few months: atop the Mediabase hot adult contemporary radio chart.

Played 5,894 times during the October 4-10 tracking period, “Blinding Lights” enjoys a nineteenth non-consecutive week at #1. This week’s spin count trails last week’s mark by a modest 61 plays but keeps “Blinding Lights” ahead of the pack.

Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart” concurrently falls one spot to #4. Lewis Capaldi’s “Before You Go” slips one place to #5.
