Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer” Secures 14th Week As #1 Song On Hot Adult Contemporary Radio Chart

“Cruel Summer” remains #1 at the Hot AC radio format.

After returning to #1 on last week’s Mediabase hot adult contemporary radio chart, Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer” keeps the throne on this week’s listing. Extending a rather impressive reign, the hit single secures a fourteenth week as the format’s #1 song.

“Cruel Summer” received ~5,252 spins during the December 10-16 tracking period. Though 90 plays shy of the previous mark, the count still keeps Taylor Swift’s megahit in the peak spot.

Miley Cyrus’ “Used To Be Young” holds at #2 on this week’s chart, as Rema & Selena Gomez’s “Calm Down” stays at #3. Jelly Roll’s “NEED A FAVOR” retains its #4 ranking this week, and Paul Russell’s “Lil Boo Thang” ticks up one spot to #5.
