FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [July 24th, 2015]

It’s been quite a week for Taylor Swift; she and “Bad Blood” collaborator Kendrick Lamar raked in the nominations for the MTV Video Music Awards. They both managed to snag a Video of the Year nomination for “Bad Blood”, as well as Kendrick landing a second VOTY nomination for his powerful “Alright” video. Sure, Taylor got into a little Twitter spat with Nicki Minaj this week over “Anaconda” being snubbed for the top prize, but according to Minaj, they’re all good now and we can look to the fact that all three artists appear in the Top 10 of the FearlessRiOT Top 20 this week

“Bad Blood” becomes Taylor’s record-setting 15th #1 song on the Top 20 Countdown and Kendrick’s first. This knocks Kelly Clarkson‘s “Invincible” down to #2. Meanwhile, Kacey Musgraves moves on up to #3, Fifth Harmony are down to #4, and Tove Lo breaks the Top 5.

Elsewhere on the countdown, as stated before, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce (who is also VMA-nominated) crack the Top 10 with “Feeling Myself”, Demi Lovato and Sabrina Carpenter tie for the biggest jumps, Echosmith‘s “Bright” is one week away from making the 20-Week Club, and we have countdown debuts from two artists who are both landing their very first songs on the Top 20:rock band Seether and pop singer Shawn Mendes.
