"LIGHTS" SHINES BRIGHT AT iHEART

iHeart has revealed that The Weeknd is top of the heap for 2020, perhaps taking a bit of the sting out of his shabby treatment by the Grammys; he's the radio giant’s #1 artist, and his “Blinding Lights” is the year’s #1 song. Post Malone, Harry Styles, Dua Lipa and Lewis Capaldi round out iHeart's 2020 Top 5.

Tallying total audience spins and streams across broadcast radio stations and digital outlets nationwide, “Blinding Lights” reached an audience of more than 2b.
