Hozier’s “Too Sweet” Officially Earns #1 On Pop Radio Chart

“Too Sweet” wins a close race to claim #1 on the pop radio chart.

The official Mediabase pop radio chart arrives on Sundays, and this week’s chart underscores the importance of waiting until the chart goes final.

While some prematurely celebrated a second week at #1 for SZA’s “Saturn,” the actual chart reveals a different outcome: an ascent to #1 for Hozier’s “Too Sweet.”

Up three places from last week’s position, “Too Sweet” claims #1 after a very close race. The song received 15,551 spins during the June 2-8 tracking period (+1,552), besting the 15,536 received by “Saturn” (-291). “Saturn” takes #2 this week.

Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” drops one spot to #3, while Ariana Grande’s “we can’t be friends (wait for your love)” descends one level to #4. Up one spot, Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” earns #5.
