5 Seconds of Summer’s new “Hey Everybody!” garnered adds from 46 Mediabase-monitored pop stations in conjunction with this week’s official impact.

Strong, the add total is not, however, enough to earn “Hey Everybody!” the format’s most-added distinction.

The honor instead remains with Demi Lovato’s “Confident.”

Lovato’s new single, which is already a Top 30 hit on the Mediabase airplay chart, received pickups from an additional 49 monitored stations this week. That allows it to retain its position atop the pop radio add board.

Added by 27 stations, Drake’s multi-format smash “Hotline Bling” follows the Lovato and 5SOS singles in third place. Rudimental’s “Lay It All On Me (featuring Ed Sheeran)” takes fourth-most-added with 22 pickups, while a count of 18 earns Meghan Trainor’s “Like I’m Gonna Lose You (featuring John Legend)” the fifth-most-added honor.

Other notable pop options this week: DNCE’s “Cake By The Ocean” (17 adds, 6th-most-added), Alessia Cara’s “Here” (16, 7th-most-added, tie), Tove Lo’s “Moments” (16, 7th-most-added, tie), Selena Gomez’ “Same Old Love” (13 , 9th-most-added), Fetty Wap’s “679” (12, 10th-most-added).
