I remember being first exposed to AT20 in the summer of 2004, and it was more light rock dominating the countdowns. Then, in July 2006, I noticed something really different - Rihanna was on AT20 with "S.O.S. (Rescue Me)", and eventually Madonna with Justin Timberlake was on the countdown with "4 Minutes", and on Casey's final show, Lady Gaga was on the top 20 with "Poker Face".
My question is, were there other songs by Rihanna that charted on AT20? Did Black Eyed Peas ever have an entry on AT20?
All I can say is, it seemed as if AT20 played just about anything that is not rap.

"Where's the Love" did not reach the top 20, peaking at #35 on the Mediabase Hot AC chart. Rihanna only reached the top 20 during the AT20 era with "SOS" (#17) and with her appearance on Maroon 5's "If I Never See Your Face Again" (#8).
Looking through the "what might have been" threads, as well as the actual Hot AC AT40s, if AT20 were still on the Black Eyed Peas would have had hits on it with "I Gotta Feeling" and "Just Can't Get Enough", and Rihanna with "Only Girl (In the World)" and "We Found Love". (WFL would even have made AT10.)
