A significant number of hot adult contemporary stations immediately said “yes” to Meghan Trainor’s new single “NO.”

The support establishes the lead “Thank You” single as the week’s most added song.

“NO” was added by a whopping 63 Mediabase-monitored Hot AC stations in conjunction with this week’s official impact. One of the most impressive add counts in recent memory, the tally nearly triples that of the week’s next-most added song.
