Chart Notes:

  • 2021 begins with Harry Styles holding at #1 for a fourth week on my personal chart with “Golden”. Ed Sheeran takes the Biggest Mover title with his newest release “Afterglow”, soaring from 27-17 in its second week in the top 40. Entering at #39 this week is 78-year-old Paul McCartney with “Find My Way”, the oldest male soloist to ever appear on my chart. It’s taken from his album McCartney III, which came in at #2 on the Billboard 200 list recently. The aforementioned Styles also debuts with “Treat People With Kindness” at #40. A music video for the song premiered several days ago, though it’s not currently being promoted as a radio single.

Adam’s Top 100 of 2020: The Complete List

2020 was quite a year, one that will be remembered for some time to come: the pandemic, politics, protests and much more. While our lives will be much different headed into the new year, we can only hope that 2021 will bring some sort of normalcy and positive change.

Perhaps one of the few upsides of 2020 was the amount of great music that came out: despite the challenges of the last ten months, the music community remained creative and I’d like to think that some of that is reflected in my 2020 year-end chart. “Love” was in the air once again, with the top 100 containing 15 titles that used the word or the word family, including “I Love Me”, “Love Me Land”, “Stupid Love”, “Used To Love” and others. From “Me” to “You”, my chart saw some action from “Fall On Me” and “Rain On Me” to “Adore You” and “Someone To You” and even “Me & You Together Song”. Hits from Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga dominated the year, but there’s lots more to discover from the rankings of my list, including winners from radio, sync and yes, a few TikTok tunes as well.

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

The 2020 chart year encompasses a period of 53 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 1, 2019 to the chart dated November 29, 2020. Peaks listed for each track 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. 166 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a small decrease from the 167 that did so in 2019. A total of 13 titles reached the #1 spot for at least one week this year, down significantly from the 20 that did so in 2019.

Chart Notes:

  • Harry Styles scores his third solo #1 single on my personal chart, as “Golden” advances from 3-1 this week. It’s the second from the Fine Line album: “Adore You” spent three weeks at the summit in February and March. New at #31 this week, Taylor Swift has the highest of three new entries in the countdown with “Willow”, the lead single from her surprise release Evermore. The companion set to Folklore will start at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart later this month. The late Chris Cornell lands at #36 with a remake of John Lennon’s posthumous 1981 hit “Watching The Wheels”. It’s taken from a Cornell covers album that came out on Friday, No One Sings Like You Anymore. Lastly, Gwen Stefani comes in at #40 with “Let Me Reintroduce Myself”. It’s appropriate considering that this track marks her first to reach my chart since the summer of 2016.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (December 8, 2020)

Welcome to Add Lib, your Tuesday report on POP! Goes The Charts that’s mad about CHR/Top 40 adds, based on the station data provided by Mediabase 24/7 and Add Board. This week: All Time Low ends our 2020 logs with a monster win at the format! The last impact date of the year just concluded, so let’s add ’em up:

LOW GOES HIGH: Crossing over from the Alternative radio chart, where it’s placed at #1 for 12 of the last 13 weeks, “Monsters” by All Time Low and Blackbear is the Most Added single at the Top 40 format with 50 stations on impact. A new remix with Demi Lovato was released last week. This is the band’s largest impact week to date and will easily earn them their highest-charting tune at the format by the end of the month.

In second place, Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Body” earned another 30 commitments this week, as it also approaches the top 40 here on the pop chart. It was the week’s Most Added single at the Urban format, collecting a huge total of 65 stations, while also landing another 25 adds on the Rhythmic report, where it secured the runner-up position.

Charting singles from Jason Derulo, Pop Smoke and The Weeknd returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

That’s it for now! Regular weekend radio updates will continue through the freeze. See you in 2021 for more adds action.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. ALL TIME LOW featuring BLACKBEAR, “Monsters” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (December 1, 2020)

Welcome to Add Lib, your Tuesday report on POP! Goes The Charts that’s mad about CHR/Top 40 adds, based on the station data provided by Mediabase 24/7 and Add Board. This week: Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa are prisoners of the pop panel, all locked up at the top after a three-way battle for the Most Added title. Let’s add ’em up:

“SO” REACTIVE: Earning another 37 stations this week, “Prisoner” by Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa climbs one spot to become this week’s Most Added track at the Top 40 radio format. It was part of a very close race on the pop report, with The Kid LAROI‘s “So Done” coming in second place at 35 new stations and The Weeknd‘s “Save Your Tears” ranking in third place again with 31 adds.

Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Body” was also new to the report, coming in with 18 adds and a fifth place finish. It scored 38 stations at the Rhythmic format today as well, where it landed in the runner-up position.

Charting singles from Lil Nas X and Ritt Momney returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

Next week: no songs are currently listed on the schedule, but stay tuned to see if anything new appears…

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 29, 2020)

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. We hope you’re enjoying your leftovers, but on the pop airwaves, there’s some fresh data to be consumed. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

HOLDIN’ FOR GOLDN: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior are at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the sixth week in a row with “Mood”. The former #1 song at the Rhythmic format drops from 3-4 there, while it holds at #8 on the Alternative chart. On the pop survey, it remains more than 2,000 spins ahead of the song at #2, so it could pull off a seventh week at the summit if it holds together.

Last week’s pair of top 50 entries are now flying into the top 40 here: Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa leap from 49-38 with “Prisoner”. It earns the two women their 14th and 12th top 40 hits, respectively. The Weeknd‘s “Save Your Tears” is also looking strong with a 50-39 jump this week, becoming his 17th top 40 entry to date. Despite the lack of Grammy love, his enduring song “Blinding Lights” is steady at #9 in its 49th week on the chart. Will the former chart-topper hit 50 weeks before it’s purged from the list? Stay tuned.

Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez land at #48 on the chart with their streaming hit “Dàkiti”, which has already charted well in parts of Latin and South America. Actress/singer Veronika is in at #50 with “So Many Lies”, which enters largely due to overnight airplay.

The two cuts mark the last top 40 entries of the 2020 chart year. Stay tuned for more information on my year-end chart.
