Adam’s Top 100 of 2021: The Complete List

2021: it was the rollercoaster ride that we didn’t need after the year that was 2020. There were plenty of strange events that occurred in the last twelve months, but here’s one that I think we can celebrate for the time being. Yes, my Top 100 of 2021 is now available below.

When it came to the music on my personal chart, 2021 was a particularly good year for good song titles: six of them rank in the top 100, including “Damn It Feels Good To Be Me”, “Good 4 U” and “We’re Good”. We also felt the force of three powerful pop releases: “Higher Power”, “Solar Power” and “Your Power”. Of course, there was a lot of love on the charts as well, including singles like “Can You Handle My Love??”, “Love Again”, “Talk About Love” and more. From “Cloudy Day” to “Remember That Night?” and “Drivers License” to “Last Train Home”, there was much to discover and enjoy on my record player, the radio, streaming platforms and, of course, TikTok.

So, after crunching all the numbers up, here are the top 100 songs based on my weekly personal chart:

The 2021 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 6, 2020 to the chart dated November 28, 2021. Peaks noted for each entry reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, an entry with the highest 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. 162 entries had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a small decrease from the 166 that did so in 2020. A total of 14 titles reached the #1 spot for at least one week this year, up one from the 13 that achieved the feat in 2020.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 8, 2021)

Welcome to Radio Active, a Sunday evening report from POP! Goes The Charts that gets to the chart of the matter: all the highlights from the CHR/Top 40 chart, as published by Mediabase 24/7 and Mediabase Research. For the songs that will (hopefully) last a lifetime, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

THREE “GOOD” WEEKS: For the third consecutive week, Olivia Rodrigo remains at #1 on the Top 40 chart with “Good 4 U”, while her prior single “Déjà Vu” advances from 3-2. Rodrigo isn’t the first performer to hold down the top two positions at the format, though this kind of achievement is fairly rare so early into an artist’s charting days. You can expect her to hold down the #1 and #2 spots again next week. Will it be in the same order? Stay tuned.

Another five new songs enter the top 40 this week, with Silk Sonic coming in the highest with “Skate”. The song glides from 46-27, marking the second top 40 song at the format for the duo and Anderson .Paak, as well as the 23rd for Bruno Mars. Entering way up at #29, “Take My Breath” is the 19th top 40 hit for The Weeknd, whose new single is also starting out well at the Hot AC and Rhythmic radio formats. Up from 42-37, Dixie (who charted a year ago as Dixie D’Amelio) is in with the Rubi Rose-assisted “Psycho”. It’s the second top 40 entry for the former and the first for latter. Lifting from 41-39, Alessia Cara returns with “Sweet Dream”, now her 11th top 40 hit to date. Finally, the new Swedish House Mafia, Ty Dolla $ign and 070 Shake collaboration moves from 45-40. “Lifetime” is the third top 40 hit for the trio (and first since 2013), the eighth for $ign and the first for Shake.

YouTube personality turned singer Conan Gray debuts at #42 with “People Watching”, as Elle King and Miranda Lambert enter at #46 with “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”, a collaboration that’s also currently charting at the Country and Hot AC radio formats. Khalid comes in at #49 with “New Normal”, while Big Red Machine and Taylor Swift barely sneak in at #50 with “Renegade”.

The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber – Stay

Chart Notes:

  • In likely their final week at #1, Coldplay holds onto the top spot for a fourth week on my personal chart with “Higher Power”. It marks the group’s longest run at the summit since 2014, when “A Sky Full Of Stars” also spent four weeks on top. Imagine Dragons claim this week’s Biggest Mover with “Wrecked”, rising from 38-30 in its second week in the countdown. For debuts, we have three of them: trio Walk The Moon is back with their first entry in two years, “Can You Handle My Love??”, landing at #37. Michael Franti & Spearhead look to spread some positivity with “Good Day For A Good Day” at #38. Finally, checking in at #40, is the other debut posing a question this week: “Where Do You Wanna Go?”, the first chart song in 19 years for 98 Degrees. Member Nick Lachey managed to appear on my chart with a handful of solo entries through 2009, but this is the quartet’s first time on my list since “Why (Are We Still Friends)”.

Chart Notes:

  • Coldplay still believes in a “Higher Power”, as their current single endures for a third powerful week atop my personal chart. This week’s Biggest Mover in the countdown is “Renegade”, a collaboration from Big Red Machine (the duo of Aaron Dessner and Justin Vernon) and Taylor Swift, leaping from 37-27. The three new singles on this week’s list are all impacting at different radio formats through the end of the month: Imagine Dragons head for adds at Alternative and Triple A radio this coming week with “Wrecked”, which lands at #38. Sliding in at #39, “I Quit Drinking” officially hits the Hot AC format next Monday for Kelsea Ballerini and LANY. Finally, at #40, chart newcomers SUPER-Hi x Neeka bask in their sunny outlook at Top 40 radio for the last Tuesday in July with “Following The Sun”, a song that is currently popular in Austria and Germany.

Chart Notes:

  • Coldplay scores their ninth #1 single on my personal chart with “Higher Power”, advancing to the top after three weeks in the runner-up position. The group is back in a tie with Taylor Swift for the most #1 songs ever in my chart’s history. However, Dua Lipa might make that a three-way tie with “Love Again”, as her latest single soars from 25-18 to become the Biggest Mover of the week. Four tracks are new to the countdown, three of which are from artists who have claimed at least two #1 hits to date: Ed Sheeran, who lands way up at #28 with “Bad Habits”, followed by Bastille at #33 with “Distorted Light Beam” and Maroon 5 at #37 with “Lost”. The fourth and final entry comes from the duo Milky Chance, who take advantage of their chance at a debut with “Colorado” at #40.

Chart Notes:

  • My personal chart is still intoxicated by Elle King and Miranda Lambert with “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”, which remains at #1 for its fifth (and perhaps final) week. A steady stream of bulleted titles are just behind it, including Alternative chart crossovers from Coldplay at #2 and Imagine Dragons at #3. After some higher debuts on last week’s survey, Lorde and Tones And I are tied for this week’s Biggest Mover, as “Solar Power” (36-27) and “Cloudy Day” (35-26) advance nine notches on the list. The two debuts in the countdown are also by women: newcomer Holly Humberstone is new at #39 with “The Walls Are Way Too Thin”, while Olivia Rodrigo starts at #40 with “Brutal”, the fourth single to rank from her recent chart-topping album Sour.

Chart Notes:

  • “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” holds down the top spot on my personal chart for a fourth week, as Elle King and Miranda Lambert continue their reign for another update. Look for their song to perform well at the Country radio format soon, where it officially heads for adds on Monday. John Mayer had last week’s top debut with “Last Train Home”, which now rolls up the track from 39-30 this week, making it the Biggest Mover on the chart. Four new tunes are on the list this week: Tones And I leads the way with “Cloudy Day”, which lands at #35. Right behind her, Lorde returns with “Solar Power”, which brightens the #36 spot. For hits and health-related needs, Dayglow has the perfect pop prescription with his “Medicine”, debuting at #37. Lastly, Wrabel is back on the chart with “Nothing But The Love”, which is loved with an entry at #39.
