“Levitating” Scores 7th Week At #1 On Hot Adult Contemporary Radio Chart

“Levitating” continues its run atop the Mediabase Hot AC chart.

Dua Lipa’s “Levitating (featuring DaBaby)”** adds another week to its impressive run as hot adult contemporary radio’s #1 song.

Played ~5,838 times during the August 1-7 tracking period, “Levitating” enjoys a second consecutive (and seventh total) week at #1. This week’s spin count tops last week’s mark by 8 plays.

Up one spot, Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” earns #2 on the strength of its ~5,620 spins (+522).

The Kid LAROI & Miley Cyrus’ “WITHOUT YOU” slides one place to #3, and Justin Bieber’s “Peaches (featuring Daniel Caesar & GIVEON)” stays in the #4 position. Olivia Rodrigo’s “good 4 u” concurrently rises two spots to a new high of #5.

**Editor’s Note: Since its release, the Mediabase charts have only credited Dua Lipa for “Levitating.” Because many stations played the remix, Headline Planet nonetheless long ago made the editorial call to credit DaBaby when covering the song’s radio run. Billboard’s radio charts also credit DaBaby.
