FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [January 31st, 2016]

Looks like breaking onto the countdown rather late hasn’t been a detriment to Pop Evil at all because “Footsteps (Go Higher)” is now spending it’s second week in the #1 spot on the countdown. Meanwhile, Stitched Up Heart have reached the highest spot they’ve ever gotten on the Top 20 Countdown with their single “Finally Free”; they previously reached #4 with “Frankenstein”, but “Finally Free” has reached the #2 spot and could be poised to dethrone Pop Evil. Falling to #3 are The Girl and The Dreamcatcher with “Written in the Stars” while Drake‘s “Hotline Bling” falls to #4 as both songs begin to lose a little steam. But seeing as they’ve both released new tracks recently, “Summer Sixteen” and “Glowing in the Dark”, so they could find themselves on the countdown in the long-term. Rounding out the Top 5 is Halestorm with “I Am The Fire”, making this a mostly-rock Top 5. Elsewhere on the countdown, twenty one pilots have the biggest jumper, Ellie Goulding and Alessia Cara share the biggest dropper, and the sole countdown debuts comes from Cage The Elephant, making their first Top 20 appearance since “Shake Me Down” in 2011.
