Despite five acts’ impressive rule over U.S. radio this past year, the 2020 Billboard Music Awards can only crown one Top Radio Songs Artist. So who should it be?
The Jonas Brothers‘ No. 1 hit “Sucker,” which is also nominated for Top Radio Song, became the biggest song on U.S. radio in 2019 by earning 3.486 billion audience impressions across all monitored radio stations. Post Malone, who leads this year’s nomination with 16, became a true rockstar of radio when three songs from Hollywood’s Bleeding hoisted him onto three radio airplay charts for the first time each — “Take What You Want,” featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott, on Mainstream Rock, “Allergic” on Alternative, and “Circles” on Adult Contemporary.
Shawn Mendes has notched nine songs onto Billboard‘s Radio Songs chart, with seven of them landing in the top 10. Two other nominees are also up for Top Radio Song — Khalid (“Talk”) and Lizzo (“Truth Hurts”).
The 2020 Billboard Music Awards will air Oct. 14 at 8 p.m. ET, live from Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre on NBC, with Kelly Clarkson returning for her third year as the evening’s host. The 2020 Billboard Music Awards are produced by dick clark productions, which is owned by MRC Entertainment, the parent company of Billboard.
