“Bad Blood” Earns Sixth Week As Pop Radio’s #1 Song

Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” earns a sixth week atop the Mediabase pop airplay chart.

While its margin of victory was a mere 105 spins, it was a margin of victory nonetheless. Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” earns a sixth week atop the Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

The six-week reign ties that achieved by Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk (featuring Bruno Mars)” earlier this year.

This week’s “Bad Blood” victory comes on the strength of the song’s ~18,013 tracking week spins. That total trails last week’s count by 1,234, but it still bests the spin count of OMI’s “Cheerleader” by the aforementioned 105.

“Cheerleader,” which holds at #2, received ~17,908 plays during the July 19-25 tracking week (+1,454). The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” follows at #3 on the strength of ~16,836 spins (+1,278), while David Guetta’s “Hey Mama (featuring Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha and Afrojack)” (~15,201, -1,151) and Fifth Harmony’s “Worth It (featuring Kid Ink)” (~14,231, +657) complete the Top 5.

While “Can’t Feel My Face” and “Hey Mama” swapped positions, all five songs also appeared in last week’s Top 5.
