Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” will move into first place on this week’s Mediabase hot adult contemporary radio chart.

The single received 3,408 plays during the first four days of the August 8-14 tracking period. Up 9% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “Bad Habits” at #1 on Mediabase’s building/real-time chart. As it does not face an obvious threat from below, “Bad Habits” should have no trouble retaining its #1 position through the close of tracking.

“Bad Habits” will seize the throne from Dua Lipa’s “Levitating,” which has spent 7 non-consecutive weeks in the pinnacle position.

A multi-format hit, “Bad Habits” will concurrently remain inside the Top 5 on this week’s pop radio chart, while keeping its Top 10 position at the adult contemporary listing.
