FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [October 2th, 2015]

The longest-running song in the entire history of the Top 20 Countdown is “The Climb” from Miley Cyrus; with 28 weeks on the countdown in 2009, no other song has been able to pass it. The closest song to do it was “Rolling in The Deep” from Adele, which lasted 27 weeks. From the looks of things, breakout country stars Maddie & Tae are gonna surpass that goal in two weeks time as on it’s 26th week, it’s managed to return to the #1 spot for the first time since this past April. This marks the song’s fourth time on top and all but guarantees more weeks on the countdown to follow. Meanwhile, The Weeknd drops down to #2 with “Can’t Feel My Face” while Jack U and Justin Bieber stay put at #3 with “Where Are U Now”. Rounding out the Top 5 are Demi Lovato‘s “Cool For The Summer” and Fifth Harmony‘s Hotel Transylvania 2 single “I’m in Love With A Monster”.

Elsewhere on the countdown, Alessia Cara has far and away the biggest jump on this week’s list, flying five spots up to #6. Taylor Swift and Ellie Goulding also take big leaps while we have countdown debuts from Hailee Steinfeld and JoJo.
