FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [October 16, 2015]

It’s pretty much a good year to be Alessia Cara, isn’t it? She’s gotten her first charting song with “Here” and has been praise by the likes of Rolling Stone (more than once), The Boombox, and FM.TV as an up-and-coming star worthy of your time. And as “Here” officially cracks the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, it also tops the FearlessRiOT Top 20 Music Countdown on it’s 8th week. Following behind at #2 is another song that has been on the countdown eight weeks to date: “I’m In Love With A Monster” from Fifth Harmony, making it the groups 2nd Top 2 song. This brings Maddie & Tae‘s “Fly” down to #3 on it’s record-tying 28th week on the countdown. Next week, it will officially be on the list for the 29th week and will become the longest-running song in the history of the Top 20. Rounding out the Top 5 are former #1 “Can’t Feel My Face” by The Weeknd and Top 20 staple Taylor Swift with “Wildest Dreams”.

Elsewhere on the countdown, fresh off it’s presence on WWE’s NXT TakeOver: Respect show and the recent release of their new album, Bring Me The Horizon lands the biggest jump on the countdown with “Throne” moving up five spots. Also, Lauren Alaina and Ellie Goulding crack the Top 10 with Sevendust making a countdown return. However, in the coming weeks, look for songs by the likes of Chris Cornell, Danielle BradberyThe Girl and the Dreamcatcher (which includes current Top 20 Countdown artist Dove Cameron), Drake, Cassadee Pope, Demi Lovato, and Tinashe to possibly look for spots on the countdown.
