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.

10. ZARA LARSSON, “All The Time”
Album: (single only)
Label: Epic
Peak: #1 for three weeks

Chart Notes:

  • Zara Larsson scores her first #1 song on my personal chart with “All The Time”, soaring from 4-1 this week. She previously peaked at #5 late last year with “Ruin My Life”. The new radio singles for Taylor Swift and Why Don’t We tie for the week’s Biggest Mover, with “Lover” and “What Am I”, respectively, climbing seven notches. There’s quite a bit of debut action at the bottom of the chart, led by Lizzo‘s “Good As Hell” at #34. The 2016 release is now a solid sales and streaming hit thanks to Lizzo’s heightened profile and a recent award show performance. The other three entries land between #38 and #40 on my list, with “Let It Be Me” from Steve Aoki and the Backstreet Boys at #38, followed by “I’ll Be There” by Walk Off The Earth just behind them and “Kill My Mind” by Louis Tomlinson anchoring the bottom of the survey. This marks the first chart appearance for producer Aoki to date. The first two titles impact at the Hot AC format at some point this month.

Chart Notes:

  • Illenium and Jon Bellion move from 3-1 on this week’s chart with “Good Things Fall Apart”, the first #1 song for both acts. You can find the hit on Illenium’s album Ascend, which was released two weeks ago. Why Don’t We climbs from 40-33 with this week’s Biggest Mover, “What Am I”, one of last week’s top five Most Added singles at the Top 40 format. Two very lovable debuts also reach the top 40, with Taylor Swift‘s “Lover” bowing at #34 and Grace Potter‘s “Love Is Love” entering at #39. Swift’s album cut is looking to make the top 50 on both the Hot AC and Top 40 charts this week from unsolicited airplay, while Potter’s song may land just outside the top 40 on the Triple A chart.

Chart Notes:

  • Keane remains at #1 for the second week with “The Way I Feel”, which marks their sixth overall career week at the top. Their forthcoming set, Cause And Effect, is out September 20. Normani scores this week’s Biggest Mover with “Motivation”, taking a nice leap from 40-32. A pair of new songs reach the top 40 this week, led by the Diplo and Morgan Wallen collaboration “Heartless” at #39. Though Wallen’s hit the top of the Country radio chart twice since last year, this single impacts at the Hot AC format next month. One notch lower, the band Why Don’t We grabs their fourth top 40 entry on my chart with “What Am I”, which also heads for adds at the Hot AC and Top 40 formats next month.
