ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #100-91

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.

Label: Bama Rags/RCA

Chart Notes:

  • Niall Horan is #1 for the sixth week with “Nice To Meet Ya”, his second-longest run at the summit to date. The hit comes in just behind “Slow Hands” and the seven-week run it achieved during the summer of 2017. Four songs tie for this week’s Biggest Mover, all moving up six spots. A new song from Lizzo, her fourth top 40 entry of the year, debuts at #38. “Water Me” is earning airplay at several formats, though the track has not been officially serviced to radio at this point. (Stay tuned for updates in a few weeks.) Meanwhile, newcomer Spencer Sutherland breaks onto the list with “Grateful” at #39, which is also on the pop airwaves thanks to a handful of early stations. A couple of years ago, he was briefly featured on the U.K. version of The X Factor. Sutherland’s most recent EP, NONE of this has been about you, came out in March.

Chart Notes:

  • Niall Horan remains at #1 for the fifth week on my personal chart with “Nice To Meet Ya”, even as the performer releases a new one-off track called “Put A Little Love On Me”, which enters the Next In Line section after debuting on Friday. The latest radio singles from Lewis Capaldi and Maggie Rogers tie for this week’s Biggest Mover, both up seven spots from last week. Four huge debuts blast onto the chart, with “Adore You” by Harry Styles leading the way at #32. It’s the third song to chart from his Fine Line album, out next week. In with her first entry since 2012, Alanis Morissette starts at #36 with “Reasons I Drink”, the first single off her forthcoming May set Such Pretty Forks In The Road. At #39, with possibly the most intriguing collaboration on the list, Steve Aoki, Sting and SHAED debut with “2 In A Million”. Aoki’s recent top ten hit with the Backstreet Boys, “Let It Be Me”, is still in the top 20 here. Finally, at #40, newcomer Taylor Janzen enters on my personal chart with “What I Do…”, which already has some minor airplay at the Alternative and Triple A formats.

Chart Notes:

  • Newcomer Tones And I grabs a second week at #1 on my personal chart with “Dance Monkey”, which has now reached the top spot in more than a dozen countries, including the U.K. during this past Friday’s chart reveal. The Script rises from 32-24 with the week’s Biggest Mover, “The Last Time”, the first release from their forthcoming studio album. Much like those two acts, the three performers behind the week’s new entries were born outside of the U.S., with Ireland’s Niall Horan leading the parade at #32 with “Nice To Meet Ya”. Further down, Canada’s Scott Helman and Denmark’s Lukas Graham hit the top 40 at #38 and #39, respectively, with “Everything Sucks” and “Lie”. Of the three of them, Horan is the only one to hit #1 (as a solo artist and with a group), while Helman and the band have history in the top ten.
