ZAYN and Taylor Swift don’t want to live forever, but hot adult contemporary radio programmers very much want to play their song.

Picked up by 43 Mediabase-monitored stations, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” ranks as Hot AC radio’s most added song.

The Weeknd’s “I Feel It Coming (featuring Daft Punk)” follows in third place with 10 adds, while add counts of 8 each position Kelly Clarkson’s “It’s Quiet Uptown,” Sia’s “The Greatest,” and Starley’s “Call On Me” in a tie for fourth-most.

This week’s other notable Hot AC options: James Arthur’s “Say You Won’t Let Go” (7 adds, 7th-most), Lukas Graham’s “You’re Not There” (6 adds, 8th-most, tie), Niall Horan’s “This Town” (6 adds, 8th-most, tie), OneRepublic’s “Let’s Hurt Tonight” (6 adds, 8th-most, tie), Rihanna’s “Love On The Brain” (6 adds, 8th-most, tie), and Shawn Mendes’ “Mercy” (6 adds, 8th-most, tie).
