A new Ed Sheeran collaboration and the latest iHeartRadio “On the Verge” selection share the most-added honor at pop radio.

Rudimental’s “Lay It All On Me (featuring Ed Sheeran),” the former, and Conrad Sewell’s “Hold Me Up,” the latter, both scored adds from 41 Mediabase-monitored pop stations this week. The count narrowly ranks as the week’s best at the pop format.

Drake’s soaring “Hotline Bling,” which grabs the third-most-added distinction, follows with 38 pickups. Thanks to adds from 35 Mediabase-monitored stations, DNCE’s “Cake By The Ocean” and Selena Gomez’ “Same Old Love” follow in a tie for fourth-most-added.

Other notable pop options: Sia’s “Alive” (30 adds, 6th-most-added), Demi Lovato’s “Confident” (27, 7th), Ellie Goulding’s “On My Mind” (24, 8th), Major Lazer’s “Powerful (featuring Ellie Goulding & Tarrus Riley)” (23, 9th), Calvin Harris + Disciples’ “How Deep Is Your Love” (22, 10th).
