Adam Lambert finally reaches Top 20 on pop radio spins per mediabase

With a slight week-over week decline in spins, “Ghost Town” finally makes an appearance in the Top 20 pop songs (by spins) according to mediabase.

While “Ghost Town” remains one of the 25 most-shazammed songs in the world, it has already peaked in the United States at #64, and it is now facing predictably declining sales, streaming, and airplay.

Still, the song has been considered a hit, peaking in the Top 20 of both pop and adult pop formats, and garnering substantial and sustained radio airplay, streams, and sales over a long chart life. The song wraps up this last achievement after having re-established Lambert as a serious, long-term commercial artist capable of producing radio hits. After television acting roles, a critically-acclaimed global tour as the frontman of Queen, and a third Top Five album in a row, it has finally become clear to the world that Adam Lambert will never fade into the post-Idol obscurity that haunts so many of the show’s other contestants.
