FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [April 22nd, 2016]

It has been a rough week in the word of celebrities. In addition to the passing of WWE legend Chyna, we also lost one of the most prolific artists in the history of music, Prince. You might have noticed that my Top 20 graphics are purple in this particular post; switching to his signature color for this week’s countdown is my way of paying tribute to the icon. After all, even though he only ever charted one song on my weekly Top 20 (last year’s “1,000 X’s and O’s”), his decades-long legacy of music and vision paved the way for other artists on this countdown and beyond. As for the countdown itself, the girls of Fifth Harmony manage to hang on to the #1, as the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Work From Home” becomes their second song to last two weeks in a row at #1. Another girl group in k-pop/metal trio BABYMETAL are hot on their trails with “Karate” climbing up to #2, knocking Rihanna and Drake‘s “Work” down to #3. Rounding out the Top 5 are Lacey Sturm with “Impossible” and Robin Schulz & Francesco Yates with “Sugar”.

Cracking The Top 10: Adele “When We Were Young”
Biggest Mover: BABYMETAL “Karate”, Alessia Cara “Wild Things” (Each Up 3 Spots)
Biggest Dropper:
twenty one pilots “Stressed Out” (Each Down 5 Spots)
Countdown Debuts: Disturbed “The Sound of Silence”, Ice Cube & Common “Real People”, Sofia Carson “Love Is The Name”
