Zedd & Selena’s “I Want You to Know” Erupts as Pop’s Most Added; Vance Joy Follows

If a question still existed following last week’s impressive airplay performance, this week’s pop radio add board provides a definitive answer.

Yes, the Zedd-Selena Gomez pairing is an appealing one.

Their “I Want You to Know,” which credits Zedd as the lead artist and Selena Gomez as the featured one, registers as this week’s most added pop song. Mediabase says the track picked up adds from a whopping 90 monitored stations in conjunction with this week’s official impact.

“I Want You to Know” received enough first-week airplay to rank at #23 on the official Mediabase airplay chart and #24 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart. This week’s massive add count suggests it has the support needed to continue soaring in the coming weeks.

Vance Joy’s enduring “Riptide” follows, albeit distantly, as the week’s second-most added track. It picked up 29 monitored adds this week.

LunchMoney Lewis’ “Bills,” which officially reached the pop radio Top 40 this week, finds itself in a three-way tie for third-most added. Like Natalie La Rose’s “Somebody (featuring Jeremih)” and The Weeknd’s “Earned It,” it received 24 monitored adds this week.

Other popular options at pop this week: Eden xo’s newly impacting “The Weekend” (23 monitored adds, 6th-most added), Fifth Harmony’s newly impacting “Worth It (featuring Kid Ink)” (21 monitored adds, 7th-most added), Flo Rida’s “GDFR (featuring Sage the Gemini and Lookas)” (20 monitored adds, 8th-most added, tie), Ne-Yo’s “She Knows (featuring Juicy J)” (20 monitored adds, 8th-most added, tie), Ariana Grande’s “One Last Time” (17 monitored adds, 10th-most added, tie), Sam Smith’s “Lay Me Down” (17 monitored adds, 10th-most added, tie)

Other newly impacting songs: Nicki Minaj’s “Truffle Butter (featuring Drake and Lil Wayne)” (6 adds*), Sheppard’s “Geronimo” (5 adds)
*Already a top 30 hit at pop, “Truffle Butter” had been added by many notable pop stations in advance of this week’s formal impact. It was not expected to rank highly on the add board.
