Niall Horan’s “This Town” Erupts As Pop Radio’s Most Added Song

Niall Horan’s debut solo single predictably ranks as US pop radio’s most added song.

DNCE’s “Body Moves,” that song, was added by 37 stations in conjunction with this week’s official impact.

Credited with 36 adds each, Ariana Grande’s “Side To Side (featuring Nicki Minaj)” and Sia’s “The Greatest (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” tie for third place.

Fifth Harmony’s “That’s My Girl” takes fifth with 26 adds.

This week’s other notable pop options: Calvin Harris’ “My Way” (20 adds, 6th-most), The Weeknd’s “Starboy (featuring Daft Punk)” (18 adds, 7th, tie), Zara Larsson’s “Ain’t My Fault” (18 adds, 7th, tie), Hey Violet’s “Guys My Age” (17 adds, 9th, tie), and Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha’s “In The Name Of Love” (17 adds, 9th, tie).
