Will it be strong enough to enter the top 40 by the weekend? Stay tuned. Rising from 37-26, this week’s Biggest Mover belongs to Mandy Moore‘s “Save A Little For Yourself”, the first radio single off her forthcoming set Silver Landings. It heads for adds at the Triple A radio format next month. Taylor Swift leads the debut parade at #38 with “The Man”, the new and fourth radio single from Lover, while Finneas‘s “Let’s Fall In Love For The Night” (#39) and Lizzo‘s “Cuz I Love You” (#40) follow just behind it. Look for both Swift and Lizzo’s songs to place high on the adds report at Top 40 radio this coming Tuesday. Finneas’s song, which originally came out in the fall of 2018, impacts at the Alternative radio format in a few weeks.

Chart Notes:

  • Dua Lipa remains at #1 on my personal chart for the second week with “Don’t Start Now”, as the top three shifts a bit thanks to growing songs from JP Saxe and Julia Michaels (up 4-2) and Harry Styles (up 5-3), both of which are vying to become the next chart-topper. However, a pack of four entries at the bottom of the list takes up most of the excitement this week. With her first top 40 song since 2007, Mandy Moore‘s “Save A Little For Yourself” is the highest of the debuts, landing at #37. It’s the radio single from the actress and singer’s forthcoming set Silver Landings, out March 6. It impacts at the Triple A radio format in mid-February. Kaleo‘s “I Want More” follows Moore at #38, which heads for adds at that format and at Alternative radio during the last week of January. The new songs from The 1975 and Louis Tomlinson also check in at #39 and #40, respectively, with “Me & You Together Song” and “Walls” getting serviced to radio several days back. The latter performer is two weeks away from the release of his debut album, which is also titled Walls. The quartet’s Notes On A Conditional Form lands on April 24.

This week’s two debuts are impacting at the Hot AC format in the coming weeks, as they cross from other formats: a top 30 single on the Triple A chart and a former #1 at Country radio. The former is the Noah Cyrus and Leon Bridges collaboration “July”, in at #39, and the latter is Old Dominion‘s “One Man Band”, bowing at #40.

Chart Notes:

  • As 2019 turns to 2020, Coldplay‘s “Orphans” remains at #1 for the third week on my personal chart, though its run will likely be coming to an end next week. New songs from future tourmates Lewis Capaldi and Niall Horan tie for the Biggest Mover, both up six notches. Owing to a much smaller release schedule at this time of year, there are no new entries in the top 40. However, there’s always next week!

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #10-1

As 2019 and the decade draw to a close, it’s time for the annual Top 100 of the year! According to my tabulations, these titles ranked as the most successful on my personal chart. The year was full of love, found and lost, from “Higher Love” and “Lover” to “Somebody You Loved” and more. Time was the essence, whether it was “All The Time” or “The Last Time”, and the light guided the way towards the upper half of the list, including “Light On” and “Lights Up”.

So, come along with “ME!” as I count down the hits, won’t you? Let’s get some numbers rolling…

The 2019 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 2, 2018 to the chart dated November 24, 2018. Peaks listed reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, a song with the higher peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks at a song’s peak position and the amount of time charted in the top 40. 167 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a decrease from the 171 that did so in 2018.
