ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #50-41

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.

50. NORMANI, “Motivation”
Album: (single only)
Label: Keep Cool/RCA
Peak: #3

49. AVA MAX, “Sweet But Psycho”
Album: (single only)
Label: Artist Partner Group/Atlantic
Peak: #6

48. AVRIL LAVIGNE, “Head Above Water”
Album: Head Above Water
Label: BMG
Peak: #1 for one week
2018 YE: #72

47. SMITH & THELL, “Hotel Walls”
Album: (single only)
Label: Arista
Peak: #9

46. P!NK featuring CHRIS STAPLETON, “Love Me Anyway”
Album: Hurts 2B Human
Label: RCA
Peak: #9

45. ZARA LARSSON, “Ruin My Life”
Album: (single only)
Label: Epic
Peak: #5

44. KEANE, “Love Too Much”
Album: Cause And Effect

43. INGRID MICHAELSON, “Missing You”

42. TAYLOR SWIFT, “Lover”
Album: Lover
Label: Republic
Peak: #2

41. GEORGE EZRA, “Hold My Girl”
Album: Staying At Tamara’s
Label: Columbia
Peak: #8

Chart Notes:

  • The English quartet Bastille earns their fifth #1 song on my chart with “Joy”, advancing from 3-1. In November, they earned their previous #1 hit with the Marshmello collaboration “Happier”, which spent four weeks at the summit. It’s featured on the album Doom Days, which came out last month. There’s a fair amount of debut action this week, with Noah Kahan‘s “Cynic” coming in the highest at #36. The tune marks his fifth top 40 entry to date; his most recent, a #5 song called “Mess”, falls a few spots to #25 on the current list. Landing at #37, we have the first collaboration together for Alexander Cardinale and Christina Perri. “Simple Things” is just below the top 50 at Hot AC radio and gaining well. Finally, at #39, a song that’s headed to Alternative radio in a few weeks: “Hotel Walls”, the second top 40 entry for Smith & Thell. Their first chart hit, “Forgive Me Friend”, spent three weeks at #6 this past spring. It remains in the top ten on the Triple A radio chart.

Chart Notes:

  • As the Backstreet Boys remain at #1 for the third week with “Chances”, three delightful debuts spring onto the chart. Off the soundtrack to the movie Alita: Battle Angel, Dua Lipa scores the week’s Highest Debut with “Swan Song”, breaking in at #34. Lipa has two #1 hits to date on my personal chart and a total of seven weeks at the summit. Starting at #37 with her first hit entry since 2015, FLETCHER is back on the list with “Undrunk”. Her prior chart single, “War Paint”, reached #12 in October of that year. “Undrunk” is her first release for a major label. Lastly, at #38, “Woke Up Late” enters the chart in a newly-released version by the original group, Drax Project, and actor/singer Hailee Steinfeld. Just over a year ago, the tune was a decent-sized hit in the quartet’s native New Zealand.

Chart Notes:

  • As the Backstreet Boys hold at the top for a second week with “Chances” and Walk The Moon claim the Biggest Mover with “Timebomb”, up 35-24, there are three new entries in the countdown. Following his former chart-topper “Be Alright”, Dean Lewis is new at #33 with “7 Minutes”. Two spots lower, at #35, The Cranberries return with “All Over Now”. The track is featured on the group’s upcoming set In The End, their first since the passing of leader Dolores O’Riordan. Back in January 2012, the act last appeared on my personal chart with “Tomorrow”, which reached #30. Finally, at #36, Maren Morris is in with “Girl”, marking her first appearance since her collaboration on Niall Horan‘s “Seeing Blind”, which got a week at #1 during the last week of September. It’ll likely have a splashy debut at the Country radio format this week.
