The annual countdown of the top 140 songs of 2018 on the Asia Pop 40 chart played out on air throughout January and was based purely on their ranking in the AP40 chart and the number of weeks they appeared during the year.

Billboard Music Award-winner and MTV Award-winning artist Camila Cabello’s smash hit “Havana” (featuring Young Thug) has been named as Asia Pop 40‘s Number One Song for 2018. Camila Cabello has also been named as Asia Pop 40‘s Number One Artist for 2018.

L.A.-based EDM-pop duo The Chainsmokers were named Asia Pop 40’s Number One Group for 2018.
