It may be called “Cold Water,” but the new Major Lazer single is receiving a very warm reception at pop radio.

Picked up by 159 Mediabase-monitored pop stations, “Cold Water (featuring Justin Bieber & MØ)” easily ranks as the week’s most added song.

The reported add count ranks as the fourth-greatest in Mediabase history. Only Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling” (186), Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” (178), and Bieber’s own “What Do You Mean?” (165) amassed greater add counts in a single reporting period.

The “Cold Water” count also more than triples that of the week’s next-most added song.

Hailee Steinfeld & Grey’s “Starving (featuring Zedd),” that song, received 43 weekly adds.

Katy Perry’s “Rise” follows in third with 37 weekly pickups, while Alessia Cara’s “Scars To Your Beautiful” (32) and Britney Spears’ “Make Me (featuring G-Eazy)” (29 adds) respectively rank as fourth- and fifth-most added.

This week’s other notable pop radio options: Drake’s “Too Good (featuring Rihanna)” (26 adds, 6th), Kungs & Cookin’ On 3 Burners’ “This Girl” (22 adds, 7th), KIIARA’s “Gold” (17 adds, 8th), Lukas Graham’s “Mama Said” (15 adds, 9th), Cash Cash & Digital Farm Animals’ “Millionaire (featuring Nelly)” (14 adds, 10th, tie), and Mike Posner’s “Be As You Are” (14 adds, 10th, tie).
