After a multi-month reign, blink-182’s “EDGING” is set to finally relinquish its throne as alternative radio’s biggest song.
The new #1 will likely be Paramore’s “This Is Why.”
The Paramore single received 1,858 spins during the first five days of the January 22-28 tracking period. up 4% from the count at this point last week, the tally slots “This Is Why” at #1 on Mediabase’s building chart.
“This Is Why” does not have a massive lead over “EDGING,” but it has the momentum advantage. Whereas the Paramore song is up 4% from last week, blink-182’s single is down 2%.
All Time Low’s building #3 “Sleepwalking” is also approaching the top spot, but it presently looks like “This Is Why” will be able to hold it off.
The official chart will be published on Sunday.
