Popularity trends works based our of analytics. Usage Analytics reporting isn’t operational under a Cloud SSA as of today. This is because the usage analysis uses the view events created on the content farm. Since the content farm is on-premise the view events are not passed on to the search farm that is in the cloud. The analysis is run on the search farm so it will not see the view events and have the possibility to update the usage reports.
