Welcome to Add Lib, your Tuesday report on POP! Goes The Charts that’s mad about CHR/Top 40 adds, based on the station data provided by Mediabase 24/7 and Add Board. This week: Ariana Grande knows her way around the top position, as she earns the most adds this week by far. Let’s add ’em up, shall we?
THE RIGHT “POSITIONS”: Ariana Grande had a huge week at the Top 40 format with “Positions”, picking up 167 stations and the Most Added title. It was the second Most Added song on yesterday’s Hot AC log with another 18 adds there. The song landed at #28 on this past Sunday’s published report and is headed towards the top 20 by this weekend.
Meanwhile, Harry Styles finished in second place this week with “Golden”, picking up another 51 stations for a total of 114 so far. The track climbed to #39 on the same published report and should continue to fly through the fall.
Charting singles from G-Eazy, Jason Derulo and Why Don’t We returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.
