Lorde’s new “Green Light” unsurprisingly takes the top spot on this week’s hot adult contemporary radio add board.

The lead “Melodrama” single was added by 52 Mediabase-monitored Hot AC stations this week. The count more than doubles that of the next-most added song.

The Chainsmokers & Coldplay’s “Something Just Like This,” that song, won support from another 23 stations this week.

Picked up by another 20 stations, The Band Perry’s “Stay In The Dark” follows as third-most added. Linkin Park’s “Heavy (featuring kiiara)” takes fourth with 10 adds, while Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like” and Marian Hill’s “Down” tie for fifth with 8 adds each.

This week’s other notable Hot AC options: Meghan Trainor’s “I’m A Lady” (7 adds, 7th-most), Clean Bandit’s “Rockabye (featuring Sean Paul & Anne-Marie)” (6 adds, 8th-most, tie), Imagine Dragons’ “Believer” (6 adds, 8th-most, tie), JP Cooper’s “September Song” (5 adds, 10th-most, tie), Julia Michaels’ “Issues” (5 adds, 10th-most, tie), Lady Gaga’s “Million Reasons” (5 adds, 10th-most, tie), and Rihanna’s “Love On The Brain” (5 adds, 10th-most, tie).
