Most Added: Dream duo Calvin Harris and Sam Smith capture Aus radio

Calvin Harris and Sam Smith have banded together to win TMN’s Most Added To Radio crown with new single Promises.  

The collab was added to more stations than any other single this week, including across the board pick ups by KIIS, Hit92.9, Fox FM, Nova 93.7 and Hit national Drive.

Harris and Smith’s main competitor was Jess Glynne and her radio-friendly tune All I Am. The UK singer scored notable attention from the national Nova network and Hit’s Regional Network.

Natural by Imagine Dragons was tipped as TMN’s One To Watch last week, and prompted a strong reaction from MDs across the country. KIIS Sydney and Melbourne adopted the track, as did Hit105 in Brisbane and Nova 93.7 in Perth.

In light of her new album release, Ariana Grande needed no promo to get a place in this week’s Top 5. Hit’s Ash London LIVE was quickly on to her latest single Breathin.
