Mark Ronson is Most-Added at Hot AC, Ed Sheeran, Sheppard Follow

Like all good things, Ed Sheeran’s reign atop the hot adult contemporary add board had to come to an end.

After three consecutive weeks as most-added, Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” cedes its position. It does not, however, fall off the map.

While Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk (featuring Bruno Mars)” claims the most-added throne on the strength of its 18 monitored pickups, Sheeran’s “Thinking” remains impressively in the mix. Second-most-added for the week, Sheeran’s ballad, which is already #16 on the airplay chart, wins support from 16 more monitored stations this week.

Sheppard’s international smash “Geronimo,” which has been moving impressively up the airplay chart (and is currently #33), follows with 13 monitored adds. Mr Probz’ “Waves” and Selena Gomez’ “The Heart Wants What it Wants” then tie for fourth-most-added with 11 monitored station pickups each.
