Smiley (pictured) is the most successful act on the chart with eight number-one singles.

The Romanian Radio Airplay Chart is a weekly chart compiled by Israeli broadcast monitoring service Media Forest, which lists the top ten most broadcast Romanian and foreign songs on eight Romanian radio stations: Europa FM, Kiss FM, Magic FM, National FM, Pro FM, Radio ZU, Radio România Actualități and Virgin Radio Romania.[1][2] First published in 2009,[1] the chart is based on the number of times tracks are broadcast on the aforementioned radio stations, determined by acoustic fingerprinting.[3] Media Forest also releases year-end charts, listing the most broadcast Romanian songs of the respective year integrated with official audience numbers provided by the Asociația pentru Radio Audiență (Romanian Association for Audience Numbers).[4]

Since the chart began in 2009, more than 100 songs have reached the number-one position on the Romanian Radio Airplay Chart, the first being "Takin' Back My Love" by Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias and American performer Ciara. "Shoulda" (2012) by American recording artist Jamie Woon spent 20 non-consecutive weeks at the chart's summit, longer than any other song, while the most successful act is Smiley with eight number ones. As of 2018, songs by Cat Music's artists—including Delia Matache, Smiley, 3 Sud Est, Elena Gheorghe and Voltaj—have been regularly featured on the list of the most broadcast ones in Romania.[5] As of 7 October 2019, the current number one on the Romanian Radio Airplay Chart is "Străzile din București" by Florian Rus and Mira.
