Taylor Swift, Katy Perry Again Rank as Pop’s Most-Added

Taylor Swift’s record-setting “Shake it Off” once again dwarfed all rival pop songs in the weekly radio adds race.

According to Mediabase, Swift’s tune picked up another 72 monitored stations this week to convincingly reign as pop radio’s most-added tune.

The latest round of adds brings Swift’s monitored station count to 176, which reportedly represents the entire Mediabase panel. A surefire blockbuster, the only questions currently on the table concern when “Shake it Off” will reach #1 at pop and when that reign will come to an end.

Katy Perry’s “This is How We Do” once again plays runner-up to the Swift tune. The fifth “PRISM” single scored 29 more monitored adds this week.

Jason DeRulo repeats as third-most-added with 23 monitored adds, while Kiesza’s top 20 hit “Hideaway” and Pitbull’s “Fireball (featuring John Ryan)” share fourth-most-added honors with 18 pickups each.

Coldplay’s Top 30 release “A Sky Full of Stars” and Jeremih’s Top 20 hit “Don’t Tell ‘Em (featuring YG)” follow with 17 adds each. Rixton’s “Wait on Me” then claims 8th-most-added with 16 new pickups, while Hilary Duff’s “All About You” debuts as ninth-most-added with support from 14 pop stations.

With 13 adds each, Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” and The Vamps’ “Somebody for You” tie for tenth-most-added.

A trio of either new or very recent releases–Ella Henderson’s “Ghost,” Afrojack-vs-30 Seconds to Mars’ “Do or Die” and Gipp’s “Shine Like Gold (featuring CeeLo Green)”–tied for twelfth-most-added with 12 adds a piece.
