Throughout January, the re­gion’s first and only syndi­cated radio chart countdown programme, Asia Pop 40, will once again count down the most popular 140 songs from 2018 over four weekly episodes.

This year marks the fifth annual countdown of the top 140 songs on the Asia Pop 40 chart, based purely on their ranking in the chart and the number of weeks they appeared.

While the weekly AP40 countdown is hosted by Dom Lau, this year’s ‘countdown of the year’ will be present­ed over the four weeks by guest hosts from AP40’s affiliate stations as well as Asia Pop 40 China’s host Max Lim.

Creator and Executive Producer of Asia Pop 40, Rob Graham, stated: “We’re very excited to present our year-end highlight package of Asia Pop 40 again this year. What better way to showcase 52 episodes, or 156 hours, of programming? Our annual countdown was a first for Asian radio and we’re very proud of that.”

Graham added “As per previous years, we will be honouring the Asia Pop 40 No. 1 Song of 2018, the Asia Pop 40 Artist of 2018 and the Asia Pop 40 Group/Duo of 2018.”

The Asia Pop 140 countdown pro­grammes will air throughout January, culminating with the announcement of the No. 1 Song of 2018 on Saturday 26.

The Asia Pop 140 chart of 2018 consists of:

  • 62 collaborations;
  • 27 tracks from solo female artists;
  • 58 tracks from solo male artists;
  • 28 tracks from groups;
  • 15 songs from movie soundtracks;
  • 85 tracks from the Americas;
  • 7 tracks from Australia/New Zealand;
  • 15 tracks from Europe;
  • 33 tracks from the UK; and
  • 10 tracks from Asia.
