Ellie Goulding’s “On My Mind” Erupts as Pop’s Most-Added, Selena Gomez Follows

It was eagerly anticipated ahead of its official launch at radio.

It was enthusiastically supported upon making that debut.

Ellie Goulding’s “On My Mind” easily ranks as this week’s most-added song at pop radio.

The lead “Delirium” single scored adds from a whopping 126 Mediabase-monitored pop stations in conjunction with this week’s official impact.

Bolstered by instant support from the iHeartMedia network of stations, the tally comfortably positions the Interscope-promoted single atop Mediabase’s pop radio add board.

Fellow Interscope singles claim the next two slots; one also features Ellie Goulding.

Picked up by 48 monitored stations, Selena Gomez’ “Same Old Love” repeats as pop radio’s second-most-added song. “Same Old Love,” which builds upon the 36 adds it received last week, is the follow-up to Gomez’ chart-topping “Good For You (featuring A$AP Rocky).”

Both Interscope and Ellie Goulding are involved in this week’s third-most-added song. Major Lazer’s “Powerful (featuring Ellie Goulding & Tarrus Riley),” that song, received 33 monitored adds this week.

Elle King’s “Ex’s and Oh’s” grabs fourth-most-added on the strength of its 27 pickups, while Drake’s “Hotline Bling” grabs fifth courtesy its 26 adds.

Other notable pop options: X Ambassadors’ “Renegades” (23 adds, 6th-most-added), Maroon 5’s “Feelings” (21 adds, 7th), Pentatonix’s “Can’t Sleep Love” (15 adds, 8th), Halsey’s “New Americana” (13 adds, 9th), Alessia Cara’s “Here” (12 adds, 10th, tie), Audien’s “Something Better (featuring Lady Antebellum)” (12 adds, 10th, tie), The Weeknd’s “The Hills” (12 adds, 10th, tie), and Empire Cast’s “No Doubt About It (featuring Jussie Smollett & Pitbull)” (12 adds, 10th, tie).
