Some days, it’s hard to sit down and just start writing about music. Earthquakes, hurricanes, wildfires—but I think as long as no one mentions “climate change,” we’re all good, right? So, let’s get to it…

Capitol’s Marella, Rainey and Siciliano have been at the top of the addboard for the last two weeks with Sam Smith’s “Too Good at Goodbyes.” That one, which was also the #2 Greatest Gainer for the week, landed inside the Top 25. And it went #1 on Spotify, iTunes and BuzzAngle consumption charts. You might say it’s on fire. Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands” is set to move to #1 this week, and the second single, “Too Much to Ask,” drops this week with the album due to be released on 10/20. Halsey’s “Bad at Love” (Astralwerks) makes the Top 20 move with 170 stations on board and 13m+ video views.

Warner Bros. Gray, Dyer, Reich and Shih put Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” back in the Most Added column again this week with 24 new adds just as the track moves Top 30. There are now 125+ stations on board. Impacting 10/3 is Linkin Park’s “One More Light”—the video for which is currently trending #1 on YouTube. “The caring message of ‘One More Light’ is something folks will grasp immediately,” says SiriusXM King of Pop Kid Kelly. “The musical legacy Chester left is a gift to be seized.” Macklemore f/Skylar Grey’s “Glorious” (Bendo) is Top 20 and pulls in big spin increases at KLIF, KRBE and KKDM.

Caroline’s Saturn, Halpern and Holman are doing a great job with Hey Violet’s “Hoodie.” With over 140 stations spinning, this one is set to join the Top 30. Next up is NF’s “Let You Down”; already on board are WKQI, WNOW and AMP NY.

Epic’s Afloarei and Dimig impacted Fifth Harmony’s new “He Like That” (SYCO) this week, landing them in the Most Added column with 37 adds that include WKTU, KIIS, WHYI and WFLZ. French Montana f/Swae Lee’s “Unforgettable” (Bad Boy)—one of the week’s Greatest Gainers—made the Top 10 jump, and it’s one of the Top 10 streaming songs in the country. Camila Cabello’s “Havana” (SYCO) charted this week with support from Z100, KIIS, WWPW and Y100. Yo Gotti & Mike Will Made-It f/Nicki Minaj’s “Rake It Up” is chartbound.

Republic’s Spangler and Russell impacted Nick Jonas’ “Find You” (Island) this week, pulling in 42 stations, including B96, WXKS, KIIS and KDIS, and making it the #3 Most Added track this week. This one should chart soon. Hailee Steinfeld & Alesso f/Florida Georgia Line & watt’s “Let Me Go,” which charted this week, could be found in the Most Added column. It was also added to Spotify’s #1 Pop Playlist and Today’s Top Hits. Taylor Swift’s “Look what You Made Me Do” (Big Machine)— #2 at iTunes and #3 in U.S. consumption—is heading Top 5 as the week’s #3 Greatest Gainer.
