Most Added: Kylie was, and always will, be radio’s treasure
Commercial radio has not forgotten about Kylie Minogue. After a stint on the sidelines, lead single ‘Dancing’ is The Music Network‘s Most Added song to radio, the second straight week an Australian artist signed to a Mushroom label has taken the crown (following Vance Joy last week).
Kylie proved she still has what it takes, with each commercial radio network taking action. Across-the-board adds came in from the Nova, Hit and KIIS networks, Hit Regional, MIX 94.5 and Ash London LIVE.
Her main rival was Rudimental’s radio-made single ‘These Days’ ft. Jess Glynne, Macklemore and Dan Culpen. The song drew attention from most stations across the country, but failed to pick up an all-important add from the ACE Radio Network.
Australian country artist Keith Urban is steadily increasing his stature at commercial radio as new single ‘Parallel Line’ snatches #3 from Dua Lipa’s ‘IDGAF’. As expected, both smooth stations added Urban, as did the Hit Regional Network.
Stalwart Drake rounds out the Top 5 this week with new track ‘God’s Plan’. It was picked up by Smallzy’s Surgery and received a handful of afternoon additions on various Hit stations.
