Asia Pop 40 counts down the Top 140 songs of 2018

Friday 04 January, 2019


Throughout January, the region’s syndicated radio chart countdown programme, Asia Pop40, will once again count down the most popular 140 songs from 2018, over four weekly episodes.

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

This year marks the fifth annual countdown of the top 140 songs on the Asia Pop40 chart, based purely on their ranking in the chart and the number of weeks they appeared.

This year’s countdown will be presented each week by guest hosts from AP40’s affiliate stations as well as Asia Pop40 China’s host Max Lim.

Creator & Executive Producer of Asia Pop40, Rob Graham stated: “We’re very excited to present our year-end highlight package of Asia Pop40 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 Pop40 No. 1 Song Of 2018, the Asia Pop40 Artist Of 2018 and the Asia Pop40 Group/Duo Of 2018.”
