Tori Kelly’s “Nobody Love” is Pop’s Most-Added; Ariana Grande Follows

One is iHeartRadio’s new “On the Verge” single at pop radio. One is the latest release from one of 2014’s biggest hitmakers. Both come from acts managed by Scooter Braun. And both scored major support in conjunction with their official radio impacts.

Tori Kelly’s “Nobody Love” and Ariana Grande’s “One Last Time,” the two songs, respectively register as the most-added and second-most-added songs at the pop format this week.

The former, which was recently confirmed for the “On the Verge” program and thus confirmed for guaranteed airplay at iHeartMedia’s pop stations, grabs the most-added distinction on the strength of its 61 monitored Mediabase adds. Unsurprisingly, powerhouse iHeart stations like New York’s Z100 and Los Angeles’ 102.7 KIIS are in on the “Nobody Love” action.

“One Last Time,” which is the follow-up to Grande’s “Love Me Harder,” narrowly misses the top spot. It claims second-most-added courtesy its 60 weekly pop adds. The aforementioned Z100 is on that list of 60.

One add short of #1 on the pop add board, “One Last Time” does reign supreme at rhythmic. The song, which received 29 rhythmic adds this week, is that format’s most-added track.

As far as pop goes, nothing fared nearly as well as the Kelly and Grande songs. The next-most-added track is Sam Smith’s “Lay Me Down,” which picks up support from 24 monitored stations. Iggy Azalea’s “Trouble (featuring Jennifer Hudson)” and Jessie J’s “Masterpiece” tie for fourth-most-added with 21 adds each.

Other popular picks this week: Walk the Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance” (6th-most-added, 17 adds), Flo Rida’s “GDFR (featuring Sage the Gemini and Lookas)” (7th-most-added, 16 adds), Calvin Harris’ “Outside (featuring Ellie Goulding)” (8th-most-added, 15 adds), Madonna’s “Living for Love” (8th-most-added, 15 adds), Nick Jonas’ “Chains” (8th-most-added, 15 adds) and Nicki Minaj’s “Truffle Butter (featuring Drake and Lil Wayne)” (8th-most-added, 15 adds).
