Its first play was on Fox FM in Melbourne on January 19, with 28 other stations spinning ‘These Days’ since then.

Nova 91.9 Adelaide contributed 1,558 instances, the most of any station. The total airplay equates to listening to the song on repeat for 50 days straight.

Australian Band 5SOS had the second most-spun track with ‘Youngblood’, with fellow Aussies Dean Lewis and Amy Shark making the Top 10.
