Reporting adds for the first time since December 8, influential pop radio stations Z100 New York and 102.7 KIIS Los Angeles have each confirmed the same three high-profile pickups.

The stations formally added Taylor Swift’s “willow,” Ed Sheeran’s “Afterglow,” and Justin Bieber’s “Anyone” in conjunction with the January 5 Mediabase add board.

“willow” and “Afterglow” launched to ample fanfare in December, while “Anyone” made its debut on New Year’s Day. The three songs are already charting at pop radio — and should land at the top of this week’s add board.

Headline Planet’s complete add recap is due later Tuesday.
