This list is packed with great songs and amazing artists. Tops last issue’s!
1) Shape of You – Ed Sheeran
One of many great songs written and performed by Ed Sheeran became an instant hit, staying in 1st for 5 weeks. He performed this song at the Grammys as a one-man-band and blew the crowd away.
2) Bad and Boujee – Migos ft. Lil Uzi Vert
Has been on chart for 13 weeks. End of conversation. Next!
3) I Don’t Wanna Live Forever – Zayn and Taylor Swift
I don’t know who has a better falsetto, Zayn or Taylor. Fun, mysterious song, featured in the movie Fifty Shades Darker, and well suited to be. This collaboration has been on the chart for 9 weeks.
4) Million Reasons – Lady Gaga
Very emotional song about an unbalanced relationship. An amazing performance of this song by Gaga at the Super Bowl dramatically increased popularity and sales. It has been in this position for 12 weeks.
5) Bad Things – Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello
The chorus is fun to listen to, but the rap is kinda creepy. Somewhat strange tune but managed to stay on the chart for 14 weeks in spot 4 and just now bumped down.
6) Bounce Back – Big Sean
Something to be played in a club, but definitely not for everybody. Has a good beat, but would be better without the lyrics. Still rising on the chart after 14 weeks.
7) Closer – The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey
Still up after 28 weeks!!! This duo just won their first ever Grammy (for a different track). Still a great song; there is a reason it has stayed in the top 10 for 28 weeks.
8) Scars to Your Beautiful – Alessia Cara.
Inspiring song about self-worth, one of many by this breakout artist. Has been up for 24 weeks. Cara has a gifted voice and a lot of spunk.
9) Don’t Wanna Know – Maroon 5 ft. Kendrick Lamar
Almost a chorus on replay with Lamar thrown in. Still works and sounds great (thanks to Adam Levine). Has been up for 18 weeks.
10) Paris – The Chainsmokers
Second song in the top 10 by this group. To be honest, I hadn’t heard this song until I went to write this piece. It came as a pleasant surprise but was a little bland, and there was not much building up. A girl escapes her parents with a boy; not the best by The Chainsmokers. Up for 4 weeks.
