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.

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2016: Part Three, 25-11

All the top tunes from the year that was.

All the top tunes from the year that was.

75 songs have come and gone, and now, we’re headed into the top 25 on my Top 100 of 2016. All 25 titles reached the top five at some point during their runs, which deserves a “HandClap” or two. From the U.K. to Canada and back to the U.S., we have a diverse group of acts coming to you in the next 15 songs. So, take the “Adventure Of A Lifetime” and scroll down to see what singles were powerful enough to rank just below the top ten on my year-end survey…

The 2016 chart year encompasses the period of 52 charts from the list dated December 6, 2015 to the list dated November 27, 2016. Peaks provided reflect the highest position reached by the final chart of the survey year. For any ties in points, a song with a higher peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks stayed in the top 40. 168 songs in total had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, an increase from the 165 that did so in 2015.

25. THE 1975, “The Sound”
Writer(s): The 1975
Album: I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It
Label: Dirty Hit/Interscope
Peak: #3
Weeks: 23

They keep falling short of the top ten on Alternative radio, but this English quartet has five top ten singles on my own survey.

24. PHANTOGRAM, “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore”
Writer(s): Eric Frederic, Phantogram, Dan Wilson, Edwin Bocage, Alfred Scramuzza
Album: Three
Label: Republic
Peak: #2
Weeks: 21

Though I was familiar with this duo’s music before 2016, this track was their first to make my list. The production is amazing.

23. SERENA RYDER, “Got Your Number”
Writer(s): Todd Clark, Derek A.E. Fuhrmann, Ryder
Album: TBA
Label: Atlantic
Peak: #2
Weeks: 22+

“Stompa” made my top 20 in 2013, but I’m a much bigger fan of this lovely single. It went top ten on Hot AC radio in Canada.

22. SHAWN HOOK, “Sound Of Your Heart”
Writer(s): Todd Clark, Hook, Stephen Kozmeniuk
Album: TBA
Label: Hollywood
Peak: #4
Weeks: 23

Todd Clark strikes again! He just knows how to craft an excellent tune. Hook’s been charting in Canada for several years now.

21. ADELE, “Hello”
Writer(s): Adele, Greg Kurstin
Album: 25
Label: XL/Columbia
Peak: #1 for seven weeks (2015/2016)
Weeks: 19 (25 total, including 2015 weeks)

Yes, it would’ve done better if those six weeks had counted for the 2016 year, but it’s a smash! She has two songs left on here.

20. FITZ & THE TANTRUMS, “HandClap”
Writer(s): Fitz & The Tantrums, Sam Hollander, Eric Frederic
Album: Fitz & The Tantrums
Label: Elektra/Atlantic
Peak: #3
Weeks: 22

Months after it reached the top five on Alternative radio, the crossover craze has begun for this single. Get your hands ready.

19. GWEN STEFANI, “Make Me Like You”
Writer(s): Stefani, Justin Tranter, Julia Michaels, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson
Album: This Is What The Truth Feels Like
Label: Interscope
Peak: #2
Weeks: 22

Stefani’s comeback album gave her three top 40 hits on my personal chart, with this outstanding single becoming the biggest.

18. INGRID MICHAELSON, “Hell No”
Album: It Doesn’t Have To Make Sense
Writer(s): Michaelson, Barry Dean, Luke Laird
Label: Cabin 24/Sony RED
Peak: #4
Weeks: 23

Michaelson touched my top ten once before with 2009’s “Maybe”, but this ear candy was more than just a “maybe” this year.

17. JORDAN FISHER, “All About Us”
Writer(s): Rory Andrew, Jenna Andrews, Dylan Pace-Rodriguez, Francesco Yates
Album: Jordan Fisher (EP)
Label: Hollywood
Peak: #1 for one week
Weeks: 23

Best known for roles in Grease: Live and Teen Beach Movie, Fisher scored with a sensational set (his debut EP) during 2016.

16. THE STRUMBELLAS, “Spirits”
Writer(s): The Strumbellas
Album: Hope
Label: Glassnote
Peak: #2
Weeks: 25

Whether you have “guns” or “dreams” in your head, depending on the version, this Canadian sextet had a nice breakout year.

15. COLDPLAY, “Adventure Of A Lifetime”
Writer(s): Coldplay, Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen
Album: A Head Full Of Dreams
Label: Parlophone/Atlantic
Peak: #1 for two weeks
Weeks: 20 (24 total, including 2015 weeks)

The English band scored their seventh huge #1 on my chart this year, a record at the time, but it’s since been passed by Adele.

14. BEN RECTOR, “Brand New”
Writer(s): Rector, David Hodges, Abe Stoklasa
Album: Brand New
Label: Aptly Named/Capitol/Caroline
Peak: #5
Weeks: 25

Rector’s first hit on my chart was a giant, and it certainly had some longevity. Bandmate Cody Fry’s “Go” also hit the top 100.

13. P!NK, “Just Like Fire”
Writer(s): P!nk, Max Martin, Karl Johan Schuster, Oscar Holter
Album: Alice Through The Looking Glass (Soundtrack)
Label: RCA
Peak: #3
Weeks: 23

2016 was another great year for soundtracks. This song gave the pop superstar her third top ten hit from a movie since 2001.

12. WALK THE MOON, “Work This Body”
Writer(s): Walk The Moon
Album: Talking Is Hard
Label: RCA
Peak: #1 for one week
Weeks: 23

Three #1 hits, three different calendar years, all from the same album. It’s a rare feat, but a cool one for this great Ohio band.

11. PASSENGER, “Somebody’s Love”
Writer(s): Passenger
Album: Young As The Morning, Old As The Sea
Label: Nettwerk
Peak: #1 for one week
Weeks: 23

You know how I love his music so, and the fifth #1 hit on my chart from this English musician was no exception. Great album!

Stay tuned for more of the Top 100 of 2016 tomorrow, when I reveal the first half of my top ten songs from the list…

Chart Notes:

  • A number of younger male soloists have reached the top of my chart this year, including 20-year-old Troye Sivan and 22-year-olds Jordan Fisher and Zayn Malik. This week, however, a singer who turns 19 in four days claims both the new #1 song on the countdown and the title of the youngest male soloist to ever reach the summit. He’s James Taylor-Watts, better known as James TW, and his hit is called “When You Love Someone”. The song is up 2-1 in its ninth week on the chart. It’s featured on his EP titled First Impressions, out now. Happy (early) birthday!
  • When it comes to #1 singles on my chart, Adele leads the pack (along with Coldplay) with a total of seven chart-toppers. A chance at that eighth #1 is looking possible now, as “Water Under The Bridge” lands my Highest Debut this week at #38. It’s the fourth single to chart from 25, which was recently certified Diamond. Her U.S. tour continues through next month.
  • Ingrid Michaelson hit #4 earlier this year with “Hell No”, which became her highest-charting song to date on my list. She returns to the chart at #39 with “Still The One”, the second radio single from It Doesn’t Have To Make Sense. We’ll see how it does at Hot AC radio on Halloween, the day when it haunts program directors for a solid adds date.
  • Finally, at #40, is the third top 40 single for Lukas Graham. “You’re Not There” heads to Hot AC radio on November 7. It follows “Mama Said”, which hit the top 15 at the format, and #9 on my personal chart for the Danish group.

Olly Murs – Grow Up
The Last Bandoleros – Where Do You Go?
Tom Chaplin – Quicksand

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut, at #35, is by one of the most successful bands to make my chart since it began. They have a total of six #1 songs, including big hits like “Makes Me Wonder”, “Misery” and “This Love”. Of course, I’m talking about Maroon 5, and their latest single is “Don’t Wanna Know”. Though the song has received mixed reaction for its tropical house nature, it had a strong start at both radio and retail, and its Pokémon Go-themed music video is generating some big buzz as well.
  • Teenage Canadian singer Shawn Mendes is making his way down the chart with “Treat You Better”, which reached a peak of #2 recently. However, he debuts this week with the follow-up single, “Mercy”. It’s new at #38. Both tracks are taken from the former #1 album Illuminate, which managed to reach the top five in over a dozen countries. “Mercy” impacts at the CHR format this Tuesday, so stay tuned to see how well it does on the latest adds report.
  • Two weeks ago, my #40 song made its radio debut on Carson Daly’s Daly Download countdown program. At the time, it was unable to be download, streamed or tagged. So, now that it’s had a proper release in the last few days, we can all identify the trio Captain Cuts and vocalist Nateur on their track “Love Like We Used To”. Both acts have either production or writing credits on prior chart hits, but have never charted as artists before.
