FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! (Dec. 23rd, 2016)

Merry Christmas, everyone! Gonna make this intro brief due to holiday festivities, but this is the second-to-last countdown of 2016, and it’s topped off by the one-and-only Bruno Mars. Nabbing his third #1 song after “Nothin’ On You” and “Uptown Funk”, he lands his first #1 as a main artist with “24K Magic”. This sends Alessia Cara’s “Scars to Your Beautiful” down to #2. Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj hold on to #3 with “Side to Side”. Green Day slips to #4 with “Bang Bang” and Maren Morris falls to #5 with “80s Mercedes”. Rounding out the Top 10 are “Starboy” from The Weeknd & Daft Punk (#6), “Why So Lonely” from Wonder Girls (#7), “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” from Dua Lipa (#8), “Road Less Traveled” from Lauren Alaina (#9), and “Black Beatles” from Rae Sremmurd & Gucci Mane (#10). Also, the aforementioned “80s Mercedes” becomes Maren Morris’ second entry into the 20 Week Club, while countdown debuts from Childish Gambino and Starset are at the tail end of the chart.
