Chart Notes:

  • Big congrats to Irish trio The Script, who score their seventh #1 hit on my chart with “Arms Open”, up from 3-1. This entry follows “Rain”, which stalled at #2 for four weeks last year. (Both singles are from the album Freedom Child, which debuted at #1 on the charts in Ireland, Scotland and the U.K. in September.) “Arms” is the act’s 12th top ten song in a row, a massive run that began in 2009 with “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved”, which would eventually spend eight weeks at #1 that spring.
  • Two chart-topping artists have the two debuts on this week’s chart, starting with a high one from Troye Sivan and “My My My!”, which flies in at #30. Two years ago, Sivan’s “Youth” spent three weeks at #1, which was followed by a #6 follow-up in “Wild”, featuring Alessia Cara. Meanwhile, entering at #38, the follow-up to recent two-week chart-topper “New Rules” is ready to slay the competition. Dua Lipa‘s latest single is titled “IDGAF”, but you should GAF about her endless pop bops.

Chart Notes:

  • It was a big first week of 2018 for new music by top artists, from lead singles and remixes to soundtrack cuts, and they’re all very much reflected in the countdown this week. Leading the festivities, at #31, is a remix of “Finesse” by Bruno Mars and one of 2017’s hottest newcomers, Cardi B. The original version of the hit, recorded by just Mars, first appeared on his 2016 album 24K Magic. Justin Timberlake also bounces in with this week’s #34 track, “Filthy”. Just ahead of his performance at the Super Bowl, the superstar is out with his forthcoming album Man Of The Woods, due February 2. Finally, climbing in at #39, is another collaboration, this entry from Liam Payne and Rita Ora. “For You” is the first track to be released from the soundtrack to Fifty Shades Freed, which opens in theaters on February 9. (Gee, that’s a whole lot of f-words. Luckily, all of them are clean!)

Chart Notes:

  • A huge congrats to Niall Horan, who scores his third solo chart-topper in a row with “Too Much To Ask”, moving 2-1 after a long run of five weeks in the runner-up position. Horan previously scored #1 hits with “This Town” and “Slow Hands”, the latter of which was recently named the top title on my Top 100 of 2017. (It spent seven weeks at the top in July and August.) Meanwhile, three new songs jump into the top ten this week, all by international acts: Calum Scott (up 11-8 with “You Are The Reason”) and Bastille (up 12-10 with “World Gone Mad”) come from England, and Sheppard (up 13-9 with “Coming Home”) formed in Australia. Get out your pop passports — Adam’s Top 40 is taking over the world. Maybe.
  • A pair of new songs launch into the top 40 at the end of this calendar year, with Serena Ryder‘s “Ice Age” (#37) and John Splithoff‘s “Sing To You” (#39) breaking into the countdown. For Ryder, her latest single is the third one to be issued from the album Utopia, which also provided us with 2016’s “Got Your Number” (#2) and 2017’s “Electric Love” (#13). Newcomer Splithoff and “Sing” actually appeared on a list I compiled at the end of 2016 as one of the top 30 independent tracks of that year. (Of course, if you know my work with Train Tracks, I gave the song its first airplay in May 2016.) The single impacts at Hot AC radio on January 22 via Asylum Records.

Chart Notes:

  • New Top 40 radio singles from Kesha and Maroon 5 are this week’s two debuts on my personal chart. “Woman”, which is at #38, teams the former act with The Dap-Kings Horns, who played with the late Sharon Jones. Kesha is coming off her biggest hit to date on my chart, “Praying”, which spent four weeks at #1 and falls to #33 this week. The latter group’s “Wait” (#40) marks the fourth single from the deluxe edition of Red Pill Blues and the follow-up to the SZA-assisted “What Lovers Do”, which peaked at #6 and currently sits at #14. They have six #1 songs to date, their last coming in 2012.
  • Watch out for the Top 100 of 2017 starting tomorrow! It’s going to be a fun one. Stay tuned for lots of great music…

Chart Notes:

  • The Syco Music family adds two new top 40 entries on my personal chart to their massive string of huge records, as James Arthur‘s “Naked” (#37) and Louis Tomlinson‘s “Miss You” (#40) climb aboard this week. Earlier this year, Arthur had a #10 single on my chart with the international hit “Say You Won’t Let Go”, while Tomlinson’s “Back To You” (a collaboration with Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals) stumbled its way to #21. Arthur’s new track impacts at the Hot AC format on January 15; Tomlinson’s song is already making solid gains in the top 60 at the Top 40 format.
  • Just one week until my Top 100 of 2017! So many great singles from fantastic artists and bands like Adele, Lorde, MUNA and Taylor Swift are all in the mix, and a whole lot more. Check back from December 18-22 for the final results!
