Chart Notes:

  • Harry Styles earns his second #1 single as a soloist (and fourth including his time as a member of One Direction) with “Adore You”, moving from 2-1 this week. Featured on his latest album Fine Line, the song is also currently a top ten hit on the Hot AC and Top 40 radio charts. Three new titles land in the top 40, led by Wrabel‘s “Hurts Like Hell” at #37. Now independent, the singer and songwriter scored my #1 song of 2016 with “11 Blocks” while signed to the Epic label. Ashe‘s “Moral Of The Story” follows at #38, a track that surged in data at several platforms after it was featured in the Netflix film To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. Finally, at #40, Tennis enters with “Need Your Love”. The duo’s album Swimmer was released last week.

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #40-31

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.

Chart Notes:

  • As Tones And I scores her third week at #1 on my personal chart with “Dance Monkey”, Niall Horan bolts from 32-22 with “Nice To Meet Ya”, claiming the Biggest Mover title in the process. Towards the bottom of the list, new entries from Harry Styles and Finneas come onto the survey at #37 and #38, respectively. “Lights Up” is the fourth solo appearance for Styles outside of One Direction on my chart; we’ll see if it can tie his highest-charting solo song to date, 2017’s “Sign Of The Times”, which spent a week at the top. Finneas debuts with his first top 40 song as an artist, “Shelter”, though he’s previously made the top 40 as a writer and producer for his younger sister Billie Eilish. It comes from a recent EP titled Blood Harmony, which was released last week.

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.

Three singles are new to the survey, led by Maroon 5‘s “Memories” at #35, with The Script debuting at #37 with “The Last Time” and Maddie Poppe coming in at #39 with “Not Losing You”. The two groups have reached the top spot with several songs now, while soloist Poppe has one top ten entry to date.

John Mayer earns the highest of two debuts on the survey, entering at #37 with “Carry Me Away”. The tune will reach the top 50 on the published Hot AC chart tomorrow. The new collaboration “Don’t Call Me Angel” lands at #39 for Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey, which came out early Friday morning. The song is featured on the soundtrack to the new Charlie’s Angels film, which Grande also executive-produced; the album is due on November 1, while the film opens November 15.

Chart Notes:

  • Bastille stays at #1 for a second week with “Joy”, a current top ten hit on the Alternative radio survey, while Keane remains strong at #2 with their biggest song in seven years, “The Way I Feel”. Will it reach the top in the coming weeks? This battle is a tough one, but it could succeed. A pair of Australian artists have new songs in the top 40, with a reissue of Dean Lewis‘s “Waves” leading the way at #38. The original version of “Waves” bubbled under my chart in January and February of last year. A newer version of the track, which was remixed by Timbaland, impacts at the Hot AC format on Monday. A notch lower, at #39, it’s the first appearance of Tones And I with “Dance Monkey”. The viral smash ranks at #1 on the official singles chart in Australia as of earlier this weekend and continues to break across Europe.

Chart Notes:

  • Spending a third week at #1, Lizzo‘s “Juice” maintains the crown during the same week that her 2017 song “Truth Hurts” bows at #36. That cut has reemerged on the sales and streaming charts thanks to a sync in the Netflix film Someone Great, and it’s also beginning to find some airplay at the Rhythmic and Top 40 radio formats (though “Juice” is still receiving spins at both as well.) “Truth” is not the Highest Debut on the top 40 update, however: that belongs to Ingrid Michaelson‘s “Missing You”, which checks in one spot higher at #35. The other two debuts this week, new at #37 and #40, respectively, will be vying for support at Alternative radio in the near future: “Good Things Fall Apart” by Illenium & Jon Bellion and “You And I” by Barns Courtney. Other than Lizzo, Courtney hit #1 on my chart with 2016’s “Fire”, which had a four-week run on top.
