The Chainsmokers’ “Honest” and Zedd’s “Get Low (featuring Liam Payne),” which both impacted pop radio this week, each landed at a substantial number of stations.

Kesha’s “Praying,” which does not technically impact until next week, received slightly more support.

Picked up by 63 Mediabase-monitored pop stations this week, “Praying” ranks as the format’s most added song.

“Honest” takes second place with 62 adds, while “Get Low” claims third place on the strength of 57 adds.

Jonas Blue’s “Mama (featuring William Singe),” which landed at 21 stations, takes fourth place on the weekly add board. Each added by 19 stations, Macklemore’s “Glorious (featuring Skylar Grey)” and French Montana’s “Unforgettable (featuring Swae Lee)” tie for fifth.

This week’s other notable pop radio options: Hey Violet’s “Hoodie” (16 adds, 7th-most), Bruno Mars’ “Versace On The Floor” (15 adds, 8th-most), Julia Michaels’ “Uh Huh” (13 adds, 9th-most, tie), Logic’s “1-800-273-8255 (featuring Alessia Cara & Khalid)” (13 adds, 9th-most, tie), and Post Malone’s “Congratulations (featuring Quavo)” (13 adds, 9th-most, tie).
