Taylor Swift starts the new year off with a bang, as "Willow" is a triple HitPredictor this week, at Top 40, AC and Hot AC. And Ed Sheeran's "Afterglow" is a double winner, at Top 40 and Hot AC. Meanwhile, "Kings & Queens" by Ava Max earns its third award, at Mainstream AC. Its previous wins were at Hot AC (where it's currently #1) and Top 40 (where it peaked at #2). And last but not least, "Hawai" by Maluma x The Weeknd picks up its second honor this week, at Rhythmic (after Top 40).
