FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [October 30, 2015]

Well, Alessia Cara couldn’t stay here at the #1 spot forever…..yes, I love making these corny references to the song title. Anyway, Alessia Cara – who recently announced the name and cover of her upcoming debut album – has dropped down to the #2 spot after two weeks on top. Who’s responsible for this? None other than Top 20 Countdown staple Taylor Swift, who earns her 16th #1 song on the Top 20 Countdown with “Wildest Dreams”. This also sends Fifth Harmony down a spot; the ladies have been everywhere lately from the MTV Europe Music Awards to the Noex Fan Awards (and will even perform at the TeenNick Halo Awards) and they’re still hanging in the Top 5 of the countdown at #3 with “I’m in Love With A Monster” (fitting since it is Halloween after all). Rounding out the Top 5 are Bring Me The Horizon who tie with Chris Cornell for the highest jump of the week with “Throne” rising to #4, followed by “On My Mind” Ellie Goulding taking the #5 spot.

Elsewhere on the countdown, Maddie & Tae‘s “Fly” is still on the countdown at #6 on it’s 30th week on the countdown; the three are set to perform on the CMA Awards next Wednesday and are nominated for Vocal Duo, Best New Artist, and Video of the Year on the show. Also, Florence + The Machine cracks the Top 10 for the 4th time with “Ship to Wreck”, and we have three countdown debuts from The Girl and the Dreamcatcher (a band featuring Disney Channel star Dove Cameron and her boyfriend/Liv & Maddie co-star Ryan McCartan), Danielle Bradbery, and the returning Adele, who makes her first Top 20 appearance in three years with the highest debuting song of this year!
