Songs by two artists who are new to the airplay charts are heating up this week. "Overrated" by Blxst is a double HitPredictor this week, at Rhythmic and Urban. And "Telepatia" by Kali Uchis earns its second award this week, at Top 40, to go with its win at Rhythmic last week. Meanwhile, superstar Ariana Grande picks up a second honor for her current single, "pov," at Hot AC. It was a winner at Top 40 four weeks ago, on March 29.
