Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” Erupts as Pop Radio’s Most Added Song

Like Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home” and Meghan Trainor’s “NO,” Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” launched with considerable industry enthusiasm and opening day support from the iHeartMedia network of pop stations.

Like the 5H and Trainor songs did in their respective impact weeks, Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” claims the top spot on the pop radio add board.

“Dangerous Woman” earns the most added distinction thanks to pickups from a whopping 143 Mediabase-monitored stations. The count more than quadruples that of the next-most added song.

Justin Bieber’s “Company,” that song, was added by 30 stations this week.

The aforementioned “NO” takes third place with 27 weekly pop adds, while Demi Lovato’s “Stone Cold” grabs fourth on the strength of 25 pre-impact pickups. An add count of 20 slots Flume’s “Never Be Like You (featuring Kai)” at #5 on the add board.

This week’s other notable pop radio options: The Chainsmokers’ “Don’t Let Me Down” (featuring Daya)” (19 adds, 6th), Hailee Steinfeld’s “Rock Bottom (featuring DNCE)” (12 adds, 7th, tie), Jonas Blue’s “Fast Car (featuring Dakota)” (12 adds, 7th, tie), Conrad Sewell’s “Remind Me” (11 adds, 9th, tie), DJ Snake’s “Middle (featuring Bipolar Sunshine)” (11 adds, 9th, tie), and Grace’s “You Don’t Own Me (featuring G-Eazy)” (11 adds, 9th, tie).
