Adele [NBC]

A very stagnant Mediabase hot adult contemporary airplay chart again features Adele’s “Hello” at #1.

The smash “25” single tops the listing for a seventh straight week. It received ~7,163 spins during the December 27-January 2 tracking week (+613).

The other members of the Top 5 — Meghan Trainor’s “Like I’m Gonna Lose You (featuring John Legend)” (#2, = | ~7,089, +658), Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches” (#3, = | ~6,376, +542), Elle King’s “Ex’s and Oh’s (#4, = | ~6,162, +551), and Ellie Goulding’s “On My Mind” (#5, = | ~5,517, +524) — are also positioned as they were last week.

Also stagnant? The remaining members of the Top 10.

Taylor Swift’s #6 “Wildest Dreams,” Rachel Platten’s #7 “Stand By You,” Coldplay’s #8 “Adventure Of A Lifetime,” X Ambassadors’ #9″ Renegades,” and R. City’s #10 “Locked Away (featuring Adam Levine)” are all positioned as they were last week.
