FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [May 27th, 2016]

The girl group war has ended. After six weeks of back-and-forth, neither BABYMETAL nor Fifth Harmony claim the #1 spot on the Top 20 Countdown this week. Instead, Alessia Cara has broken through and notched her second chart-topper with “Wild Things”. “Karate”, which is one of two theme songs for the next WWE NXT takeover special, ends up at #2 while “Work From Home”, the first single from 5H’s just-released sophomore album 7/27, sits still at #3. Climbing to #4 after soundtracking a routine on Dancing With The Stars is “The Sound of Silence” by Disturbed while “New Romantics” from Taylor Swift rounds out the Top 5. Following at #6, #7, and #8 is “Dangerous Woman” by Ariana Grande (from her recently released about of the same name), “Smoke and Fire” by Sabrina Carpenter, “7 Years” by Lukas Graham. “Love Is The Name” from Radio Disney NBT Artist Sofia Carson and “One Dance” from Drake break into the Top 10 at #9 and #10.
