Rihanna, Kanye & McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds” is Most-Added at Pop, Rhythmic

FourFiveSeconds Cover

The buzzworthy new collaboration between Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney is the week’s most-added song at the pop and rhythmic radio formats.

“FourFiveSeconds,” the new track, scored pickups from 72 monitored Mediabase pop stations and 30 monitored Mediabase rhythmic stations.

The nature of the song did not, however, help it resonate with urban radio programmers. “FourFiveSeconds” commanded only one add from that format.

Other hot picks at pop this week: Maroon 5’s “Sugar” (2nd-most-added, 47 adds), Kelly Clarkson’s “Heartbeat Song” (3rd, 28), Imagine Dragons’ “I Bet My Life” (4th, 27) and Nick Jonas’ “Chains” (5th, 25).

Other hot picks at rhythmic this week: Ciara’s “I Bet” (2nd-most-added, 25 adds), Calvin Harris’ “Open Wide (featuring Big Sean)” (3rd, 22), Kid Ink’s “Hotel (featuring Chris Brown)” (4th, 17), Chris Brown & Tyga’s “Ayo” (5th, 12).
