What Reverb is getting used mostly in Pop music today?

So obviously reverb is getting used more and more subtle these days compared to even ten years ago. So I am wondering what reverb are the pros mostly using in mixes for today's billboard hot 100 songs. Are they using mostly otb or itb or both. Is the lexicon sound still alive or have things shifted over towards cleaner reverbs like TC and Eventide or even itb stuff and convolution reverb?

I know a lot of guys up this way are still using the PCM 90's. Thats just from my experience though.

I think in the same way synths nearly always sound better going line in over a digital version the hardware reverbs are still getting alot of love and no-one does it better than Lexicon.

Most Billboard hot 100 songs don't use much reverb per se.... It is done mostly with well timed delays.... You use several delays to sculpt a reverb and if you do it correctly you end up with a much clearer, but still effected and ambient sound.

That´s a good question. I started realize that small amount of almost hidden delay will sound more "pop like" than reverb.
More than specific box and brands, I´m interesting in what type of reverb are people using and what kind of delay.

I'd rather know what was used on the top three multi-platinum sellers, if I were interested in pop's reverb.
