Ariana Grande’s “One Last Time” is Again Pop’s Most Added; Madonna, Zedd Follow


Ariana Grande’s “One Last Time” continues to erupt at pop radio.

For the second consecutive week, the singer’s latest “My Everything” single ranks as the pop format’s most-added song.

According to Mediabase, “One Last Time” commanded adds from 49 monitored pop stations this week. It led last week’s add board with 46 pickups.

Two weeks ago, the Grande track claimed second with 60 adds and was one pickup away from tying for last week’s most added distinction.

This week, it leads the board with a two station differential.

The runner-up? Madonna’s “Living for Love.” After scoring a disappointing 15 adds in conjunction with its February 10 impact and a downright weak 2 adds last week, the pop icon’s song won support from a healthy 47 stations this week. The strong add week comes on the heels of its official foray into the Top 40 of the Mediabase and Billboard pop radio airplay charts.

Zedd’s new “I Want You to Know (featuring Selena Gomez),” which scored enough opening day airplay to rank as the 34th-most played song for the entire week between February 17 and 23, follows thanks to its 43 weekly adds. The Weeknd’s newly impacting “Earned It” claims fourth-most added with 37 adds, while Sam Smith’s “Lay Me Down” grabs fifth-most added on the strength of its 36 pickups.

Other popular options for pop programmers: Nick Jonas’ “Chains” (6th-most added, 30 adds), Ryn Weaver’s new “OctaHate” (6th-most added, 30 adds), Tori Kelly’s “Nobody Love” (8th-most added, 25 adds), Natalie La Rose’s “Somebody” (9th-most added, 18 adds), Flo Rida’s “GDFR (featuring Sage the Gemini & Lookas)” (10th-most added, 17 adds), George Ezra’s new “Budapest” (10th-most added, 17 adds), Lunchmoney Lewis’ “Bills” (10th-most added, 17 adds), Ne-Yo’s “She Knows (featuring Juicy J)” (10th-most added, 17 adds), Who is Fancy’s “Goodbye” (10th-most added, 17 adds).
