FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [August 12, 2016]

There is just no stopping Garbage, it seems. This week marks five of the last six weeks for the band at the top spot on the countdown. Even the collective powers of Sia and Sean Paul could not topple the band, as “Cheap Thrills” rises, but falls short at #2. The vocal stylings of Fifth Harmony are down one spot to #3 with “Write On Me” while Adele remains at #4 for a second straight week with “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)”. After 12 weeks on the countdown, “My Church” from Maren Morris finally cracks the Top 5 of the Top 20 Countdown, the same week in which the second single from her debut album also debuts on the countdown. Rounding out the Top 10 is “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake at #6, “Sucker for Pain” from the #1 movie in America (for now) Suicide Squad at #7, “Dark Necessities” from Red Hot Chili Peppers at #8, “H.O.L.Y.” from Florida Georgia Line at #9, and “One Dance” from Drake at #10.

Biggest Mover: Ariana Grande  “Into You” (Up 7 Spots)
Biggest Dropper: In This Moment
