Top100 WARM

Revealed: The Songs That Were ACTUALLY Most Played On US Radio In 2019!

A new annual statement from WARM reveals what songs have had the most radio airplay in the United States in 2019. 

The list, which looks at the top 100 songs, contains both some expected as well as some unexpected titles. At the very top we have Panic! At The Disco with the most played song on American radio stations, the song (‘High Hopes’) was released in May 2018. In 97th place we see the genuine classic “Don’t Stop Believin” by Journey. The song was released way back in 1981 and is actually the only charting song not released in the late 2010s.

It’s worth noting that most other radio charts available are influenced by the size and importance of specific radio stations. This means that plays on certain stations count more than plays on others, which can make them less transparent. WARM’s chart, however, uses a 1:1 count based on 7492 monitored US radio stations which is the largest coverage of US radio stations for any radio tracking service by far.

An artist like Khalid may not seem like the biggest name in the music industry yet, he seems to be pretty well off, since the accumulated numbers shows that he’s the artist with most radio airplay in the US due to his multiple entries on the chart – ending up with a total of more than 2.2M radio spins during 2019. One could wonder if he’s also the artist earning the most on radio royalties? See the complete list below.
