In addition to topping this week’s Hot AC radio add board, Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” also ranks as AC radio’s most-added song.
Pop releases sometimes face a delay before garnering significant attention at the adult contemporary radio format.
That is not the case for Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams.” AC programmers are already showing enthusiastic support for Swift’s new “1989” single.
Picked up by 25 Mediabase-monitored stations this week, Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” easily ranks as the format’s most-added song.
The impressive wave of support comes as “Wildest Dreams” ventures into the Top 20 of Mediabase’s Building AC Airplay chart. It debuted at #21 on this past week’s official chart.
Other notable AC options this week: Ed Sheeran’s “Photograph” (7 adds, 2nd-most-added), Meghan Trainor’s “Like I’m Gonna Lose You (featuring John Legend)” (5 adds, 3rd-most-added), OMI’s “Cheerleader” (4 adds, 4th-most-added), R. City’s “Locked Away (featuring Adam Levine)” (3 adds, 5th-most-added).
Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” scores the most first-week adds in pop radio history. Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Downtown” also garner huge support.
In an absolutely monstrous week at pop radio, three songs received adds from over 100 Mediabase-monitored stations.
Two songs received more than the then-record 156 first-week Mediabase adds garnered by Jason Derulo’s “Want to Want Me” in March 2015.
One song, ultimately, sets the new record.
Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” is that song. The fifth “1989” single garnered a whopping 178 pop radio adds in conjunction with this week’s official impact. The monstrous total is the greatest ever recorded at the pop format.
By scoring 165 adds, Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” would have set a new Mediabase record — and been most-added — in any other week. Thanks to Taylor Swift’s new single, it settles for second-most-added on this week’s board.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Downtown” follows as the week’s third-most-added song. While not enough for the top spot, its gigantic 134 add count is certainly nothing about which to sneeze.
Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” makes a massive impact at Hot AC radio. It easily ranks as the week’s most-added song.
Hot adult contemporary radio programmers are extremely enthusiastic about Taylor Swift’s new single “Wildest Dreams.”
That enthusiasm manifested in the form of a surge to #29 on this week’s Mediabase airplay chart.
It also manifests in the form of a trip to the top of the Mediabase Hot AC add board.
Picked up by a whopping 79 monitored stations this week, “Wildest Dreams” easily ranks as the format’s most-added song.
Insofar as they are already aggressively spinning the song, the stations put “Wildest Dreams” on track to become another Hot AC hit for Taylor Swift. Her previous four “1989” singles “Shake it Off,” “Blank Space,” “Style,” and “Bad Blood” all reached #1 at the format.
“Wildest Dreams” is in a league of its own on this week’s add board. Jamie Lawson’s “Wasn’t Expecting That,” which claims second-most-added, received 21 pickups.
Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” earns a sixth week atop the Mediabase pop airplay chart.
While its margin of victory was a mere 105 spins, it was a margin of victory nonetheless. Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” earns a sixth week atop the Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.
The six-week reign ties that achieved by Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk (featuring Bruno Mars)” earlier this year.
This week’s “Bad Blood” victory comes on the strength of the song’s ~18,013 tracking week spins. That total trails last week’s count by 1,234, but it still bests the spin count of OMI’s “Cheerleader” by the aforementioned 105.
“Cheerleader,” which holds at #2, received ~17,908 plays during the July 19-25 tracking week (+1,454). The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” follows at #3 on the strength of ~16,836 spins (+1,278), while David Guetta’s “Hey Mama (featuring Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha and Afrojack)” (~15,201, -1,151) and Fifth Harmony’s “Worth It (featuring Kid Ink)” (~14,231, +657) complete the Top 5.
While “Can’t Feel My Face” and “Hey Mama” swapped positions, all five songs also appeared in last week’s Top 5.
Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” claims #1 at pop radio for a fifth straight week and tops Hot AC for a second straight week.
While it suffered a slight week-over-week airplay loss, Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” easily earns a fifth week atop Mediabase’s pop radio airplay chart.
It also earns a second straight stint at #1 on the hot adult contemporary airplay chart.
The song’s latest pop victory comes courtesy its 19,246 tracking week spins (-142). The spin count bests that of OMI’s #2 “Cheerleader” (16,454) by nearly 3000.
A total of 6,835 plays gives “Bad Blood” a second straight victory at Hot AC. Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again (featuring Charlie Puth),” which earns the runner-up slot, scored 6,376 plays during the July 12-18 tracking week.
David Guetta’s “Hey Mama (featuring Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha and Afrojack)” (#3, -1 | 16,352, +97), The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” (#6, +2 | 15,556, +2329) and Fifth Harmony’s “Worth It (featuring Kid Ink)” (#5, +2 | 13,573, +461) complete the top five on Mediabase’s pop chart.
“Can’t Feel My Face” makes its inaugural appearance in the weekly top five. “Worth It” re-enters this week.
Walk the Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance” (#3, -1 | 6,359, -72), Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song” (#4, +2 | 6,328, +435) and Jason Derulo’s “Want to Want Me” (#5, -1 | 5,954, -162) complete the Hot AC top five. “Fight Song” makes its first Top 5 appearance this week.
— A multi-format hit, “Bad Blood” also holds the #8 spot at rhythmic radio and the #12 spot at adult contemporary.
Taylor Swift’s “Style” may finally remove “Thinking Out Loud” from the top of the adult contemporary airplay chart.
As her “Bad Blood” continues to reign over the pop airplay chart, Taylor Swift’s previous single “Style” is finally on the verge of claiming #1 at adult contemporary.
The song, which spent time earlier this year atop Mediabase’s pop and hot adult contemporary airplay charts, is currently the most played song at adult contemporary. If it can retain its lead through Sunday, it will officially become #1 on the Mediabase AC chart.
In doing so, it would dethrone Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” Sheeran’s smash, which first seized the crown from Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space,” has reigned since March.
“Style” received 2,746 plays during the seven days between June 20 and 26 (+90). Sheeran’s tune earned 2,738 spins within that window (-22).
Other Top 5 AC songs include Maroon 5’s “Sugar” (#3), Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do” (#4) and Kelly Clarkson’s “Heartbeat Song” (#5).

After only one day of official promotion, Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” already ranks as the week’s 34th-most played pop song.
The power of the Taylor Swift brand, the buzz stemming from Sunday’s music video premiere, the enthusiasm for the new Kendrick Lamar remix and the hourly promotional airplay provided by iHeartMedia combined to thrust Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” into the Top 40 of Mediabase’s rolling pop airplay chart.
According to Mediabase, “Bad Blood (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” was the 34th-most played song during the week between May 12 and May 18. It received 1,955 spins within that seven day window.
Because the original version of “Bad Blood” was already receiving some pop airplay (72 spins between May 5 and 11), Monday, May 18 did not count as the song’s “opening day.” It did, however, represent the day on which the “Bad Blood” remix first emerged — and the day on which pop radio stations began enthusiastically spinning the track.
Based on airplay between May 17 and May 23, the next official Mediabase airplay chart will be issued on Sunday. Given that “Bad Blood” will see its weekly airplay total rise with each coming day, it is a lock to rank very highly on that chart.
— In addition to charting at #34 on the rolling pop listing, “Bad Blood” appears at #35 on the rolling hot adult contemporary chart.
