Update: Tuesday afternoon, Z100 confirmed that it had added Backstreet Boys’ “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” and Belly’s “What You Want (featuring The Weeknd)” to its official playlist.
Just before the add board closed Tuesday night, the station confirmed two more pickups. New York’s #1 Hit Music Station also added Nicki Minaj’s “Bed (featuring Ariana Grande)” and Sabrina Carpenter’s “Almost Love.”
Backstreet Boys’ “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” and Belly’s “What You Want (featuring The Weeknd)” just won support from the leading American pop radio station.
New York’s Z100, that station, added the songs to its playlist in conjunction with the June 26 add board.
As of press time, those are the only two adds for the week.
“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” is approaching the Top 20 at pop radio; it is an even bigger hit at hot adult contemporary.
Established at rhythmic radio, “What You Want” is just now beginning to receive attention at pop.
