"Adore You" by Harry Styles and "Overtime" by Chris Brown are both double HitPredictors this week: "Adore" at Top 40 & Hot AC; "Overtime" at Rhythmic & Urban. And three songs earn their second awards this week: "Hot Girl Bummer" by Blackbear, at Top 40 (after Rhythmic); "Jerry Sprunger" by Tory Lanez at Rhythmic (after Urban); and "Woah" by Lil Baby, at Urban (after Rhythmic). Meanwhile, "Heartless" by The Weeknd picks up its third honor, at Urban (after Top 40 & Rhythmic). This is the last issue of the HitPredictor newsletter for 2019. Happy holidays! We'll be back on January 13.
