Linkin Park’s “Heavy (featuring kiiara)” takes fourth place with 8 adds, while Cage The Elephant’s “Cold Cold Cold” registers as fifth-most added courtesy its 7 pickups.

Each added by 5 stations, Judah & The Lion’s “Suit & Jacket,” Kings Of Leon’s “Reverend,” and The Chainsmokers & Coldplay’s “Something Just Like This” tie for sixth.

Five songs follow in a tie for ninth place; Cold War Kids’ “Love Is Mystical,” Grouplove’s “Good Morning,” Magic Giant’s “Set On Fire,” The Orwells’ “They Put A Body In The Bayou” and The Revivalists’ “Wish I Knew You” each won support from 4 stations.
