In 2019, the Queen of Pop emerged as the MVP, placing four tracks from her new album Madame X on the year-end tally. Tying for second place with two tracks each are queer country sensation Orville Peck and the incomparable Ariana Grande. But who among them stood out and claimed the No. 1 song of the year?
Lana Del Rey scores her fifth chart topper on the countdown as “Doin’ Time” (up 2-1). She last led in November 2015 when “Salvatore” ruled the roost for a week. Orville Peck’s “Hope To Die” slides down to No. 2 as his “Turn To Hate” holds steady at No. 3 for a third week. Elsewhere, Lewis Capaldi makes a splashy move into the Top 5 with “Someone You Loved” (up 21-5).
Orville Peck spends a second frame on top with “Hope To Die,” while Lana Del Rey jumps 6-2 with “Doin’ Time.” Elsewhere, Lewis Capaldi bows in the anchor slot with “Someone You Loved.”
Country music wunderkind Orville Peck scores a second chart topper from his debut album Pony as “Hope To Die” rises 4-1 this week. Another Pony track, “Turn To Hate,” is right behind it at No. 3. The week sees four new tracks debut, led by Brett Kissel at No. 14 with “Drink About Me.”
Liam Gallagher moves into the summit with “Once.” Orville Peck inches up one to No. 4 with “Hope To Die.” Lana Del Rey jumps 19-15 with “Doin’ Time.” The 1975 arrive at No. 20 with their polarizing “People.”
