Chart Notes:

  • It was a quiet week for new entries last time around, but this week, the action is back with four new singles in the mix. With the week’s highest debut at #36, Clean Bandit and Julia Michaels collaborate on “I Miss You”. It’s the third top 40 song for the trio, and the fourth for Michaels. The track is climbing at both Hot AC and Top 40 radio, having impacted at the pop format last Tuesday, and it should be appearing in our Radio Active column by the end of the month. “Smoke Clears” is just behind “Miss”, entering at #37 for Andy Grammer. His forthcoming album, titled The Good Parts, is out December 1. It’s his ninth hit on my chart since 2010.
  • The other two debuts this week are from foreign bands from have previously hit #1 on my chart. Rolling in at #38, Coming Home” marks the seventh top 40 entry on my chart for Sheppard, who reached the top in 2013 with “Hold My Tongue”. It currently sits just below the top ten on Australia’s iTunes chart. A notch below them, at #39, is the seventh top 40 single for Bastille, “World Gone Mad”, off the soundtrack to the upcoming Netflix film Bright. The quartet is looking for their fourth #1 on my chart, having previously led with “Pompeii” (2013), “Of The Night” (2014) and “Good Grief” (2016).

Chart Notes:

  • For the past ten weeks, three #1 songs by solo women have dominated the top spot. Now, a fourth song extends that total to 11. Dua Lipa‘s “New Rules” rules over my chart this week, up 3-1 in its 14th week in the top 40. The international hit is just below the top 15 on Top 40 radio, and is also posting nice gains at the Hot AC and Rhythmic formats. Last week’s #1, “What About Us” by P!nk, tumbles to #4 after three weeks at the summit.
  • No debuts are on my chart this week, but there are plenty of notable movers in the top 40, including Harry Styles‘s “Kiwi” (27-19) and The Head And The Heart‘s “Don’t Dream It’s Over” (23-16). Styles is looking for his third solo top ten single in a row, while the Seattle band is going for their first trip into the region. Stay tuned to see how they do!

Chart Notes:

  • Bleachers are back on my chart with the follow-up to “Don’t Take The Money”, which spent five weeks at the top earlier in the year. “I Miss Those Days” is this week’s Highest Debut at #38. Both songs are taken from the album Gone Now. “Don’t” is sure to be a notable contender for #1 on my year-end chart for 2017, but with four weeks left in the chart year, anything is possible! Stay tuned for more details on the schedule soon.
  • Singer Bishop Briggs makes her “Dream” a reality, as her new single enters at #39 on my newest chart. Last year, “River” went to #3 on the Alternative chart, giving the singer her biggest radio hit to date. (She’s currently rising at that format on a collaboration with the Cold War Kids titled “So Tied Up”, which is in the top 20.)
  • Finally, at #40, is The Script and “Arms Open”, the second top 40 hit from their Freedom Child album. It’s their 12th time on my chart since 2009. The previous single from their latest set, a former #2 song called “Rain”, drops to #13 this week.

Olivia Holt – Generous
Taylor Swift – Gorgeous (new)

Chart Notes:

  • Liam Payne is close to falling out of the top 40 (down 30-35 this week) with his former #2 hit, “Strip That Down”, but I’m sure he’ll return to the upper rungs of my chart soon enough with “Bedroom Floor”, his follow-up single. It’s new at #38, as it takes the title of Highest Debut on my latest chart. Payne’s highly-anticipated solo album still doesn’t have a release date.
  • Pop and dance singer Daya turns 19 on Tuesday, so make sure to wish her a big ol’ happy birthday on social media. She’s at #39 this week with a new track called, well, “New”. It leads her forthcoming second studio album, which also doesn’t have a release date yet, but it’s sure to have plenty of bops. “New” was the third Most Added titl at Top 40 radio last week.
  • Finally, at #40, is the first chart single for Swedish-born, Nashville-based singer Andreas Moss. “Stuck In My Feelings” is currently at both Hot AC and Top 40 radio, recently going top 50 at the former. Moss’s label, Curb, has shied away from the formats in the last decade, largely developing charting acts at Christian (AC/CHR/Rock) and Country radio.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut marks the return of Kelly Clarkson, who was actually in my top ten at the top of the year with a song from The Hamilton Mixtape, “It’s Quiet Uptown”, which peaked at #6. She enters at #31 with “Love So Soft”, which serves as the lead single from her forthcoming album Meaning Of Life, due October 27. (Another tune from the set, “Move You”, was released with “Love” as a part of a pre-order package on Thursday.) Clarkson has three #1 songs to date, her last coming in 2011 with “Don’t You Wanna Stay”, a collaboration with Jason Aldean.
  • As Taylor Swift rises from 13-6 with “Look What You Made Me Do”, the current #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100, a new track from reputation is now on my chart. “…Ready For It?” was released last Sunday, picking up Top 40 and Hot AC adds almost immediately, and it starts at #40 this week. Will “Look” hit the top soon, with “Ready” following close behind? Stay tuned!

TOP TEN: Vital Idols

Saving the best for last.

Saving the best for last.

It’s end of the Idol as we know it, and we feel fine about reminiscing and playing our favorite songs from the artists that were a part of one of the most successful television shows of all-time. For 15 seasons now on FOX, beginning in June 2002, we’ve watched new talent emerge on stage and dialed our little hearts out (and texted and clicked a few buttons on the web) to see if our pick was going to move onto the next round of competition and, eventually, win the prize of being crowned the nation’s idol. Like any program, an eventual decrease in ratings and, in this case, slumping record sales from winners, began to defeat the purpose of it. It shouldn’t be a surprise that its latest season will be its last (at least, for now.) Still, you can’t devalue the program for what it did in its heyday. It was a giant and one that will be remembered forever.

While the show’s last premiere begins tonight at 8PM Eastern on FOX, we thought we’d take a trip down memory lane and find out which American Idol finalists ranked as the top ten from the archives of Adam’s Top 40. (These results may change, obviously, as a few contestants remain on my listing as of last week.) Since September 2002, when the first song from a finalist made my chart, 27 performers from the show have landed at least one top 40 single on my chart, and they’re responsible for 88 top 40 singles in total (with more to come, I’d hope.) That’s a whole lot of top 40 property over hundreds of weeks in the last 13+ years. So, who’s my top Idol finalist when it comes all those weekly points? Check it out below.

Biggest hits are determined by year-end point totals. Singles marked with a ** represent those entries that garnered an act’s top point total, but not the highest peak in the top 40.
