TUESDAY ADD RECAP
Beyoncé, Katy Perry, A Great Big World, Jason Derulo and Other Players at Three Top Formats
It was a killer add week for Beyoncé, Katy Perry and A Great Big World, among others; let's have a look at the action at three key radio formats.

TOP 40
Katy Perry f/Juicy J
’s "Dark Horse" (Capitol) is #1 Most Added, with a slew of major markets leading, followed by Beyoncé’s "XO" (Columbia). Lorde's "Team" (Lava/Republic) and Virgin’s Bastille begin to close out while "Say Something" from Black Magnetic/Epic’s A Great Big World starts to capture even the Rhythm-leaning Pop stations. PRMD/Island/IDJ’s Avicii, Warner Bros.Jason Derulo, Hollywood’s Demi Lovato and Island/IDJ’s Fall Out Boy round out the Top 10 Most Added.

RHYTHMIC
What a great week for Columbia’s Beyoncé! Not only did she shatter iTunes sales records, but she takes Most Added honors for "Drunk in Love" f/Jay Z, as well as the third-Most Added for "XO." Sandwiched  between B’s two tracks was Katy Perry f/Juicy J "Dark Horse" (Capitol), which finally impacts, and is already on the chart and off to the races. Roc Nation/Columbia’s J Cole has a great final add week of the year, securing double-digit commitments, and "Talk Dirty" from Warner Bros.Jason Derulo f/2 Chainz takes eight early believers. 

ALTERNATIVE
2013 adds ended on a high note as Arcade Fire’s "Afterlife" (Merge) was the Most Added song at Modern Rock this week. Other winners included a strong showing for "Holding on for Life" from Columbia’s Broken Bells. Glassnote looks like they have a Top 10 song with Chvrches’ "The Mother We Share." Island/IDJ has a nice week of adds with "Hell and Back" from The Airborne Toxic Event. RCA’s Kings of Leon and Republic’s Phantogram gain more momentum as we head into 2014.

Got it? Good. Let's drink!
