Freaky Fly Bry's Top 100 - January 13, 2019 (20TH ANNIVERSARY)

20th Anniversary Special

This week marks the 20th anniversary of Freaky Fly Bry's Top 100! And what are the chances that the act at #1 here is someone who's been with the chart since the very beginning? Pretty good, I'd say, because the Backstreet Boys have achieved their 9th #1 so far with "Chances"! The second single from their forthcoming album "DNA" as achieved the pinnacle in a very appropriate week for them, and makes their current album their first since "Millennium" 20 years ago to have multiple #1's; that album was the first ever to have four straight #1's on my chart.

As Busted's ode to the decade where the chart started, the 90's, falls to #2, we see possible future #1's from Mark Ronson/Miley Cyrus (4-3) and Katy Perry (6-4, her 22nd top 10 hit) materializing, while newcomer Alec Benjamin's debut single rises 8-6 as the former #1's from Carly Rae Jepsen and Kelly Clarkson start to make way for other songs to pass them.

Two new entries to the top 10 this week and both are familiar faces to the top 10; Jennifer Lopez's new single "Limitless" from her film "Second Act" becomes her 15th top 10 and her first since 2014's "First Love", and looks possible to become her first top 5 hit in 16 years. Avril Lavigne gets her 18th top 10 with "Tell Me It's Over", the second single from her forthcoming album and follow-up to the #1 hit "Head Above Water".

The biggest mover within the top 40 is Taylor Swift's "Getaway Car", the 6th song to chart from her latest album "Reputation". If it makes top 10, it will become her 25th top 10.

Entering the top 40 are the second top 40 hit from Led Zeppelin Greta Van Fleet's album "Anthem Of The Peaceful Army" and Ariana Grande's 15th top 40 hit "Imagine".

This week's debuts run the gamut of all styles of popular music, led by Australian country singer Keith Urban and including 70's Philly soul group Blue Magic, Dutch EDM DJ Armin Van Buuren, American pop star Mike Posner, Lebanese-British flamboyant pop star Mika, British pop star Olly Murs, Steps member gone solo Claire Richards, legendary 90's rock band Garbage with a Record Store Day single, 14-year-old The Voice contestant Kennedy Holmes, "bucket list" singer who recently lost his cancer battle Mike Jacobs, German singer Alexa Feser, American indie rockers Bad Suns, Brazilian singer Lorena Simpson, and yet again, following up their current #1 hit, the Backstreet Boys.

And finally, the chart itself is bookended by artists who were on my very first chart 20 years ago. While the Backstreet Boys are at #1 (and also debuting at #99, to commemorate the year I started my chart), at #100 we have Cher's former top 10, the ABBA cover "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)". The Backstreet Boys and Cher are the only artists to appear on both this anniversary chart and the first chart.
