As far as the hot adult contemporary radio format is concerned, the reign of “Hello” continues.

Adele’s smash hit single earns a sixth straight week atop the Mediabase Hot AC airplay chart. The lead “25” single received ~6,550 spins during the December 20-26 tracking week (-362).

The count is again enough to hold off Meghan Trainor’s “Like I’m Gonna Lose You (featuring John Legend),” which remains runner-up on the strength of its ~6,431 weekly plays (-102).

Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches” stays at #3 with ~5,831 spins (-181), while Elle King’s former #1 “Ex’s and Oh’s” is again the #4 song. It received ~5,611 weekly plays (-373).

Up one place, Ellie Goulding’s “On My Mind” takes the #5 spot. The lead “Delirium” single was spun ~4,992 times during the tracking week (-156).
