Wiz Khalifa’s emotional “Furious 7” single again ranks as pop radio’s most added song.
His “See You Again,” which serves as a tribute to Paul Walker and features vocals from Charlie Puth, was added by 42 monitored stations this week. According to Mediabase, that represents the greatest amount of support shown for a pop song this week.
“See You Again” thus earns the most added distinction for a second straight week. It topped last week’s add board on the strength of its 40 pickups.
Currently America’s best-selling song by a considerable margin, “See You Again” is already up to #29 on Mediabase’s rolling pop radio airplay chart. The additional programmer support earned this week suggests it will continue to soar up that listing.
Walk the Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance,” which is currently the fastest-rising song on the aforementioned airplay chart, ranks as this week’s second-most added song. It won support from an additional 34 monitored stations.
Ne-Yo’s new “Coming for You” follows on the strength of its 30 adds, while Fall Out Boy’s new “Uma Thurman” and Sheppard’s erupting “Geronimo” tie for fourth-most added. Each received 29 monitored adds.
Ryn Weaver’s “OctaHate,” which is also starting to gain traction on the airplay chart, leverages its 28 pickups for sixth-most added.
Other popular options for pop programmers: Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” (18 adds, 7th-most added), David Guetta’s “Hey Mama (featuring Nicki Minaj and Afrojack)” (17 adds, 8th-most added), Dillon Francis & DJ Snake’s “Get Low” (12 adds, 9th-most added), Kalin & Myles’ “Trampoline” (11 adds, 10th-most added, tie), Tove Lo’s “Talking Body” (11 adds, 10th-most added, tie).
