Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home (featuring Ty Dolla $ign),” which was last week’s most added song, takes #3 this week. It received 47 adds.

Taylor Swift’s “New Romantics” follows with 27 adds, while Lady Gaga’s “Til It Happens To You” earns fifth-most added on the strength of its 23 impact week pickups.
