When this week’s Mediabase radio charts go final, Justin Bieber’s “Peaches (featuring Daniel Caesar & GIVEON)” may claim #1 on two of them.
The song is a very safe bet to top this week’s rhythmic listing. It also appears to be headed for #1 on the pop chart.
“Peaches” received 3,461 rhythmic spins during the first four days of the May 9-15 tracking period. Up 13% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “Peaches” at #1 on Mediabase’s building/real-time chart. As it does not face a clear threat from below, “Peaches” should have no trouble retaining #1 as the week concludes.
“Peaches” is presently #2 on the building pop chart with 9,574 spins, but it is definitely within striking distance of #1. The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears,” the current #1, only leads by 180 plays. “Peaches,” moreover, has the clear momentum advantage — it is up 6% from last week’s mark, while “Save Your Tears” is down 1%. If both songs stay on those rough trajectories, “Peaches” will pull ahead by the close of tracking.
