Chart Notes:

  • It’s a very Hot AC post-Thanksgiving countdown this week, with four debuts by artists who have all charted at the format. A regular on that list is pop superstar P!nk, scoring the Highest Debut at #36 with the title track from her #1 album Beautiful Trauma. It’s the follow-up to “What About Us”, which spent three weeks at the top and now ranks at #9 on my top 40. “You Are The Reason” marks the second chart entry for English performer Calum Scott, launching at #37. His “Dancing On My Own”, a cover of the Robyn song, reached #24 on the Hot AC survey earlier this year, while also peaking at #9 on my list in November and December 2016. (It’s his sole U.S. single to date.)
  • The first seasonal title to chart this year bows at #39. Kelly Clarkson‘s “Christmas Eve” is already in the top ten on the AC list, which shouldn’t be too surprising. Clarkson’s last holiday song to make my top 40 was 2013’s “Underneath The Tree”, a #12 hit that December. “Love So Soft” is still in the top ten on the Hot AC chart, while it climbs back up a notch to #3 on my own survey. Finally, at #40, is the third chart single for Gavin James, “Hearts On Fire”. His “Bitter Pill” missed the top 40 at the format in 2015, though it was in the top 50 for several weeks. (It spent two weeks at #7 here.) “Hearts” has some early airplay at a handful of stations.
  • Yes, Adam’s Top 100 of 2017 officially begins on December 18! It’s a week-long event, and there will be plenty of great tunes in the mix. Tell a friend! (Or not.)
