Top 100 Songs of 2018


These are the top 100 songs of 2018. On this page you will find three different charts.

Official Billboard Top 100 Songs of 2018
This is Billboards official top 100 songs of 2018 also known as the Hot 100 of 2018. To identify the Billboard chart, either the artist's name or chart position will appear in RED.

Nolan Method (Including 2017 cross-over points)
There are two Nolan Method charts. The first is formulated between December 2017 and end of November 2018. The same methodology Billboard use to create their top songs of 2018. To identify the Nolan Method 2017/18 chart, either the artist's name or chart position will appear in GREEN.

Nolan Method (2018 cumulative points only)
The second Nolan Method chart is formulated using 2018 cumulative points only measured from January to December 2018. To identify the Nolan Method 2018 chart, either the artist's name or chart position will appear in YELLOW.


Nolan Method Explained

The Nolan Method was formulated by lead Top40Weekly contributor Jarrett Nolan.

Using an inverse point-based system, songs earn points for each position that they're in within the Top 40. Songs at #1 earn 40 points all the way down to 1 point at #40.

A song can earn bonus points if it debuts on the chart within the Top 40. If a song debuts between #11 and #40, the corresponding points for that position would be double with 10 points added.

Example: A song entering the chart at #38, earns 3 points. This would be doubled to 6 points plus 10 making the total score for that week 16 points.

If a song debuts within the Top 10, its entry points would be doubled with 20 points added.

Example: A song debuts on the chart at #1 earning 40 points. The points are doubled to 80 plus 20 for entering in the top 10 giving the song a 100 total for that week.

Bonus points can only be earned on a song's debut week within the 40.
