Kane Brown’s “Worldwide Beautiful” and Luke Combs’ “Lovin’ On You” each received 38 adds by Mediabase-monitored country radio stations this week, tying for the most-added song.
Brown released the inspiring “Worldwide Beautiful” in the midst of the civil unrest following the death of George Floyd and the riots and protests that followed. The song’s lyrics share a message of hope about the racial divide and find Brown referencing Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
“Lovin’ On You” is the latest single from Combs and follows “Does To Me,” the superstar’s chart-topping duet with Eric Church. The song appears on Combs’ No. album, What You See Is What You Get.
Trailing behind Brown and Combs is Brantley Gilbert’s latest, “Hard Days,” which received 36 adds.
