Beyonce’s “BREAK MY SOUL” Erupts As Most Added Song At Pop, Rhythmic, Urban, R&B, Dance, Hot AC Radio

“BREAK MY SOUL” posts the year’s biggest overall add week.

Beyonce’s “BREAK MY SOUL” topping Monday’s hot adult contemporary add board was only the beginning of a massive week at radio.

The new single also earns the frame’s most added honors at the pop, rhythmic, urban, R&B, and dance radio formats. Indeed, it tops the Mediabase add board at a staggering six formats of radio.

Just as notably, it posts the year’s biggest single-week add count with pickups from a whopping 333 stations across all formats.

The achievement finds the Columbia Records team dethroning itself, as the year’s high add mark previously belonged to the label’s hit Harry Styles single “As It Was.”
