Bruno Mars was who you liked on the radio in 2017. The cross-over R&B/pop artist dominated the airwaves on stations in Atlanta. His song “That’s What I Like” has been heard on 10 different stations in the market, from V-103 and Kiss to B98.5 and Power 96.1. Collectively, the song has been heard more than 14,500 times.

Not far behind in terms of total spins was Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You,” though that song was played pretty much on the four pop stations alone, with more than 13,700 total spins. On all four pop stations – B98.5, Q100, Star 94.1 and Power 96.1 – that song was the most spun of the year.

This data below was compiled on Mediabase 24/7 as of December 16, 2017. (There are two more weeks of airplay but I’m sure not much will change from here on in.)
