FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [Nov. 20, 2015]

With only five Top 20 Countdown’s left in 2015 after this week, the music landscape doesn’t seem to be winding down completely. Three artists in the Top 5 this week have released brand new albums so far in November. Ellie Goulding‘s Delirium dropped on November 6th and the lead-off single “On My Mind” is spending it’s second week in a row at #1. Alessia Cara‘s Know-It-All was released last Friday, November 13th, and the lead-off single for that album “Here”, is staying put at #5 this week. And today marks the release of Adele‘s album 25, with the lead-off single “Hello” moving up to #4 this week. Also in the Top 5 are Lauren Alaina‘s “Boyfriend”, which becomes the American Idol star’s 5th Top 2 hit, and “Throne” from Bring Me the Horizon, which sits at #3.

Elsewhere on the countdown, Maddie & Tae‘s “Fly” is still on the countdown at 33 weeks, but looks to be on the verge of leaving the chart. The Girl & the Dreamcatcher and Prince both tie for the biggest mover along with Adele, all moving up three spots while Fifth Harmony has the biggest dropper, moving down four.  Drake and Sevendust crack the Top 10. This week sees debuts from Halestorm and Major Lazer (featuring Ellie Goulding and Tarrus Riley), as well as the return of “Footsteps” from Pop Evil after being off the chart since September.
