Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” Ranks as Most Added at Rhythmic, Urban

Programmers from three radio formats are displaying early enthusiasm over Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money.”

On the heels of last week’s high-profile launch, “BBHMM” earns the most added distinction at two of those formats and second-most added at the other.

According to Mediabase, “Bitch” tops the rhythmic radio add board with pickups from 48 monitored stations. 36 monitored adds power “BBHMM” to the same achievement at urban radio, while the song’s weekly add count of 37 ranks as the second-greatest at pop radio.

The strong add counts come as Rihanna’s latest single gains traction on the airplay charts for the respective formats. As of Tuesday, it was #44 on Mediabase’s rolling rhythmic chart, #34 on Mediabase’s rolling urban chart and #43 on Mediabase’s rolling pop chart.

“Bitch Better Have My Money” is the official follow-up to Rihanna’s “FourFiveSeconds (with Kanye West and Paul McCartney).”
