Aided by instant support from the iHeartMedia network and the enthusiasm one would expect for a new Britney Spears single, “Make Me (featuring G-Eazy)” predictably ranks as pop radio’s most added song.

The song was added by a whopping 137 Mediabase-monitored pop stations in conjunction with this week’s impact.

While it easily tops the pop radio add board, “Make Me” is not the only song to post an impressive weekly add total. Katy Perry’s “Rise,” which takes second-most added, was picked up by a substantial 80 Mediabase-monitored stations this week.

Like “Make Me,” Perry’s “Rise” entered the market this past Friday.

Picked up by another 36 stations, Ariana Grande’s soaring “Into You” registers as third-most added. Hailee Steinfeld & Grey’s newly impacting “Starving (featuring Zedd)” takes fourth place with 29 pickups, while Tinie Tempah’s “Girls Like (featuring Zara Larsson)” earns fifth with an impact week add count of 27.

This week’s other notable pop radio options: X Ambassadors’ “Unsteady” (26 adds, 6th), Kungs & Cookin’ On 3 Burners’ “This Girl” (21 adds, 7th), 5 Seconds Of Summer’s “Girls Talk Boys” (20 adds, 8th), Drake’s “Too Good (featuring Rihanna)” (17 adds, 9th), and Lukas Graham’s “Mama Said” (16 adds, 10th).

“Make Me,” “Rise,” “Starving,” “Girls Like,” “Unsteady,” “This Girl,” and “Girls Talk Boys” all officially impacted this week. Nathan Sykes’ “Give It Up (featuring G-Eazy),” which also impacted, ranks as eleventh-most added; it was picked up by 14 stations.
