Not yet over its Sam Smith obsession, pop radio just played host to a major impact from the singer-songwriter’s latest single “I’m Not the Only One.”

According to Mediabase, “Only One” garnered a whopping 63 monitored adds this week. Stacked with the names of high-profile stations like New York’s Z100, Chicago’s 103.5 KISS and Sirius XM Hits 1, the list of new supporters is larger than that garnered by any other song this week.

After a strong start last week, Maroon 5’s “Animals” stays hot with another 60 monitored pickups this week. Already up to #26 on Mediabase’s rolling pop chart, “Animals” appears poised for a quick ascent into the top ten.

Calvin Harris’ top 20 hit “Blame (featuring John Newman)” claims third-most-added with 41 pickups, while One Direction’s new “Steal My Girl” launches at 37 stations. Fergie’s “LA LOVE (la la)” claims fifth on the board with 35 adds this week.

Nick Jonas’ explosive “Jealous” follows with another 34 adds this week. After ranking as last week’s most-added track, Nico and Vinz’ “In Your Arms” lands in seventh place this week on the strength of 26 adds.

Kendrick Lamar’s “i” (8th-most-added, 25), Jason DeRulo’s “Trumpets” (9th, 24) and Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” (10th, 18) are also among the week’s ten-most-added pop songs.
