Taylor Swift | ABC

Evidently not all bored and so tired of Taylor Swift’s “1989” album, a substantial number of hot adult contemporary programmers added the latest single in conjunction with this week’s official impact.

Picked up by 26 Mediabase-monitored stations, Swift’s “New Romantics” ranks as the week’s most added song.

“New Romantics,” which replaces the stalled “Out Of The Woods,” is the seventh single from Swift’s Grammy-winning album.

Gwen Stefani’s “Make Me Like You,” last week’s most added song, takes #2 on this week’s add board. It received another 20 Mediabase-monitored Hot AC adds.

Elle King’s “America’s Sweetheart” is third with 15 adds, while American Authors’ “Pride” (13, 4th) and DNCE’s “Cake By The Ocean” (12, 5th) complete the weekly Top 5.

This week’s other notable Hot AC options: Ellie Goulding’s “Something In The Way You Move” (11 adds, 6th-most), Empire Of The Sun’s “Walking On A Dream” (10, 7th), Ben Rector’s “Brand New” (9, 8th), Daughtry’s “Torches” (7, 9th, tie), Vance Joy’s “Fire And The Flood” (7, 9th, tie), and X Ambassadors’ “Unsteady” (7, 9th, tie).
