Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic” Erupts As Pop Radio’s Most Added Song

Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic” unsurprisingly claims the top spot on this week’s pop radio add board.

The single was added by a whopping 163 Mediabase-monitored stations this week. Barring a late-evening revision, the count will rank as the fifth-greatest single reporting period add count in Mediabase pop/Top 40 history.

Only Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling” (186 adds), Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” (178 adds), and Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” (165 adds), and The Weeknd’s “Starboy (featuring Daft Punk)” posted greater add totals on a single add board.

The count, moreover, almost quadruples that achieved by the week’s next-most added song.

John Legend’s “Love Me Now,” that song, was added by 42 stations this week.

Picked up by another 33 Mediabase-monitored stations this week, Ariana Grande’s “Side To Side (featuring Nicki Minaj)” ranks as third-most added. Rihanna’s “Love On The Brain” takes fourth with 32 adds, while a weekly add count of 27 positions Niall Horan’s “This Town” as fifth-most added.

This week’s other notable pop radio options: DNCE’s “Body Moves” (25 adds, 6th-most), D.R.A.M.’s “Broccoli (featuring Lil Yachty)” (22 adds, 7th, tie), Dua Lipa’s “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” (22 adds, 7th, tie), Sia’s “The Greatest (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” (22 adds, 7th, tie), and Flume’s “Say It (featuring Tove Lo)” (15 adds, 10th).
