In addition to topping the rhythmic and urban radio add boards, The Weeknd & Kendrick Lamar’s “Pray For Me” earns the most-added honor at pop radio.

The “Black Panther” soundtrack single won support from a whopping 126 Mediabase-monitored pop stations in conjunction with this week’s official impact.

The impressive tally more than doubles that of the next-most added song.

Justin Timberlake’s “Say Something (featuring Chris Stapleton),” that song, landed at 62 new stations this week.

Picked up by 48 stations, Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey’s “The Middle” ranks as third-most added. Jack & Jack’s “Beg” takes fourth place with 34 pickups, while an add count of 23 positions Drake’s “God’s Plan” as fifth-most added.

This week’s other notable pop radio options: Troye Sivan’s “MY MY MY” (20 adds, 6th-most), Iggy Azalea’s “Savior (featuring Quavo)” (16 adds, 7th-most), Kent Jones’ “Merengue” (15 adds, 8th-most), Kesha’s “Woman (featuring The Dap-Kings Horns)” (11 adds, 9th-most), and Why Don’t We’s “Trust Fund Baby” (10 adds, 10th-most).
