Pop releases sometimes face a delay before garnering significant attention at the adult contemporary radio format.

That is not the case for Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams.” AC programmers are already showing enthusiastic support for Swift’s new “1989” single.

Picked up by 25 Mediabase-monitored stations this week, Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” easily ranks as the format’s most-added song.

The impressive wave of support comes as “Wildest Dreams” ventures into the Top 20 of Mediabase’s Building AC Airplay chart. It debuted at #21 on this past week’s official chart.

Other notable AC options this week: Ed Sheeran’s “Photograph” (7 adds, 2nd-most-added), Meghan Trainor’s “Like I’m Gonna Lose You (featuring John Legend)” (5 adds, 3rd-most-added), OMI’s “Cheerleader” (4 adds, 4th-most-added), R. City’s “Locked Away (featuring Adam Levine)” (3 adds, 5th-most-added).
