Christina and 'N Sync top airplay artists

Trade publication Airplay Monitor combines radio station ratings and airplay statistics to estimate the number of listeners who hear a given record in a week.

The 1999-2001 stats show that 'N Sync and Christina Aguilera's top singles reached far more people than Britney Spears' biggest hit, 'Oops I Did It Again.' Furthermore, 'N Sync's 'Bye Bye Bye' reached four times as many people as their previous single, 'I Drive Myself Crazy.'

Note: Spears' last single, 'Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know,' did not reach the top 40 audience chart, falling considerably short of her previous single 'Stronger's' 20.1 million audience peak.

Christina's 'Christmas Song' highest charting ever!

DOUBLE DOWN: It's not unusual for an artist to have two solo singles in the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, but it is rare for both songs to be moving up with bullets. Christina Aguilera repeats a feat accomplished by artists like Diana Ross, Linda Ronstadt, and Donna Summer, as Christina's version of "The Christmas Song" takes a seasonal leap from 44 to 18, making it the highest position ever reached for this song on the Hot 100, while "What A Girl Wants" advanced 13 to 11 on the Hot 100!

It's hard to believe, because so many people have recorded Mel Torme and Robert Wells' "The Christmas Song" over the years, but amazingly, Aguilera is only the second artist to have a Billboard Hot 100 hit with the holiday classic. The first, of course, was Nat King Cole, who last charted with "The Christmas Song" in 1962."

"The Christmas Song" marks Christina's third single to be in the top twenty over the last three months.

"What A Girl Wants" goes #1 this week on the Top 40 Mainstream Monitor Airplay chart and remains #1 on Billboard Monitor's Rhythmic Top 40 Chart for four straight weeks!
