Ariana Grande’s “Positions” Secures 5th Week As Pop Radio’s #1 Song, “34+35” Enters Top 10 As Greatest Airplay Gainer

Ariana Grande had another big week at pop radio.

Making good on the mid-week projection, Ariana Grande’s “positions” retains its #1 position on this week’s Mediabase pop radio chart.

Played ~19,617 times during the January 10-16 tracking period, “positions” earns a fifth consecutive week at #1. This week’s spin count tops last week’s mark by 2 plays.

The five-week reign ties that of “Side To Side (featuring Nicki Minaj)” for the second-longest of Grande’s career. Only the six-week leader “7 rings” spent more time atop the pop chart.

24kGoldn’s “Mood (featuring iann dior)” and Justin Bieber’s “Holy (featuring Chance The Rapper)” hold at #2 and #3, respectively, on this week’s chart. Dua Lipa’s “Levitating (featuring DaBaby)” rises one spot to #4, and Bieber’s “Lonely (with Benny Blanco)” rises one spot to #5.

Ariana Grande’s “34+35” also makes a big move this week, rising three places to #8. The fellow “Positions” single received ~11,681 spins, topping last week’s mark by 2,006 plays. The increase ranks as this week’s greatest airplay gain.
