After exiting the Folklore era, Taylor Swift has taken us back in time releasing one of her ‘From The Vault’ tracks. ‘Mr Perfectly Fine’, dropped just before midnight on Wednesday 7th April, with just enough time to garner its first 7 spins across the Hit network.
Last week the song earned a massive 640 spins across 21 stations. The strongest support came from the Nova network, accounting for almost third of the week’s airplay, averaging 42 spins per station. The Hit and KIIS networks also had the track on high rotation, while the hit also earned adds from 973, Star 104.5, i98, WaveFM and KRock.
The release skyrocketed to No.5 on the AirCheck National Radio Airplay Chart during its first full week of tracking, falling just behind her 2017 release ‘Look What You Made Me Do’, which debuted at No.3 with 768 spins on 31 August.
English musician Michael Joseph Nelsen, better known under the stage name BANNERS, hit a new high as ‘Someone To You’ reached No.26 during its fifth week of tracking. Since its release, the track has continued to rise as it gains popularity. The Nova and KIIS networks both had the track on high rotation last week, while NewFM, Hot Tomato and i98 also spun the track.
Justin Bieber delivered new music to the chart this week, teaming up with Daniel Caesar and Giveon on ‘Peaches’. The Edge Sydney was the top spinner both last week and this week, followed by the KIIS network.
