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.

  • 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:

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.

Chart Notes:

  • Earning their second #1 song on my chart and first since the spring of 2012, Keane climbs from 2-1 with “The Way I Feel”. The band also rises from 40-33 with “Love Too Much”, the follow-up single. Both cuts can be found on their album Cause And Effect, due September 20. Debuting at #38, Ingrid Michaelson has this week’s highest new entry with “Young And In Love”, which follows her recent #9 entry “Missing You”. At #39, Freya Ridings earns her first top 40 single (following a few near misses) with “Castles”, a current top ten hit in Belgium and Scotland. A third new song checks in at #40: “Motivation” by Normani, which marks her first appearance on my list, though she’s had plenty of radio hits both as a solo artist and with the girl group Fifth Harmony. All three of this week’s new entries impact at either the Hot AC or Top 40 format by the end of the month.

Chart Notes:

  • Earning a second week at #1, Katy Perry‘s “Never Really Over” holds strong at the top. In fact, the entire top five is frozen from last week. On the move from 23-15, Zara Larsson‘s new single “All The Time” is the Biggest Mover once again and headed towards the top ten. We also say hello to a pair of debuts this week, led by P!nk and Cash Cash‘s “Can We Pretend” at #37. It’s one of three songs that P!nk has on the list this week, all coming from her most recent set Hurts 2B Human, and impacts at Hot AC radio this coming Monday. Stephen Puth‘s latest tune is also new to the countdown: “Look Away” enters at #40. (No, it’s not a Chicago remake.) Puth previously reached my chart with “Sexual Vibe” earlier this year, which topped out at #19.

In the meantime, Katy Perry earns her sixth #1 single on my chart with “Never Really Over”, up 2-1, while Kygo and Whitney Houston‘s “Higher Love” is the week’s Highest Debut, landing at #38. It’s the late Houston’s first song to enter my chart since 2002’s “Whatchulookinat”.
