FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [Feb. 26, 2016]

As you might have noticed, I’ve started posting my Top 20 Countdowns on Saturdays now more than Fridays. It’s something that I’ve just ended up doing, sometimes out of laziness and somethings due to scheduling. I think I might start doing that all the time now; it just seems more convenient. Anyway, Stitched Up Heart is once again #1, making it a full month on top for the on-the-rise band. They do have to fend off power duo Rihanna Drake though, who have the biggest jumper of the week as to “Work” rises to #2. This sends Fall Out Boy & Demi Lovato down to #3 with “Irresistible”, twenty one pilots down to #4 with “Stressed Out”, and Justin Bieber down to #5 with “Sorry”. Elsewhere on the countdown, Drake has the biggest dropper of the week, Alessia Cara and Lauren Alaina continue on in the 20-Week Club, and the sole countdown debut comes courtesy of Robin Schulz & Francesco Yates (along with an accompanying Baby Bash & Frankie J sample).
