Niall Horan’s “Heaven,” Miguel’s “Sure Thing,” PinkPantheress’ “Boy’s a liar” Make Top 40 At Pop Radio

Three songs debut on this week’s pop chart.

Despite not arriving until late in the February 12-18 tracking period, Niall Horan’s “Heaven” earned enough airplay for a Top 40 position on the Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

Miguel’s “Sure Thing” and PinkPantheress’ “boy’s a liar” also earn Top 40 positions this week.

— Credited with 856 spins in its abbreviated first week, “Heaven” debuts at #32 on this week’s chart.

Below last week’s chart at #42, “Sure Thing” earns #35 on the strength of its 643 tracking period plays (+402).

“Boy’s a liar,” the recipient of 496 spins (+380), rises thirteen places to #38. The Mediabase solely credits PinkPantheress as of press time, but spins on the immensely popular Ice Spice remix (“Boy’s a liar pt. 2”) will also count toward its chart placement.
