“ME!” is the eagerly anticipated new lead single from global superstar Taylor Swift. It features Brendon Urie, the voice of enduring radio blockbuster “High Hopes.”

It should therefore come as no surprise that “ME!” received a warm welcome at the hot adult contemporary radio format.

Picked up by a whopping 96 Mediabase-monitored Hot AC stations on impact, the song convincingly ranks as this week’s most added song.

Kelly Clarkson’s “Broken & Beautiful” follows in second place with 24 pickups. Each added by 12 stations, Jonas Brothers’ “Cool” and Marshmello’s “Here With Me (featuring CHVRCHES)” tie for third.

Andy Grammer’s “Don’t Give Up On Me” and Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved,” which each landed at 8 stations, follow in a tie for fifth.

This week’s other notable Hot AC options: Dean Lewis’ “Stay Awake” (7th-most, tie), Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” (7th-most, tie), Lil Peep & iLoveMakonnen’s “I’ve Been Waiting (featuring Fall Out Boy)” (9th-most), Lauv & Troye Sivan’s “I’m So Tired” (10th-most, tie), and Shaed’s “Trampoline” (10th-most, tie).
