Zedd & Alessia Cara’s “Stay,” that song, won support from another 9 stations.

Credited with 8 adds each, Halsey’s “Now Or Never,” Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands,” and Train’s “Drink Up” follow in a tie for third.

This week’s other notable Hot AC options: Camila Cabello’s “Crying In The Club” (7 adds, 6th-most, tie), Shawn Hook’s “Reminding Me (featuring Vanessa Hudgens)” (7 adds, 6th-most, tie), Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito (featuring Justin Bieber)” (6 adds, 8th-most, tie), Shawn Mendes’ “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” (6 adds, 8th-most, tie), Paramore’s “Hard Times” (5 adds, 10th-most, tie), and Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road” (5 adds, 10th-most, tie).
