FearlessRiOT’s Top 20 Songs of the Week! [Dec. 30th, 2016]

It’s New Year’s Eve and 2016 is almost done with, so I won’t talk your head off with too long an intro. Just know that Ariana Grande has earned her first #1 since 2013’s “The Way” in the form on “Side to Side”, which also happens to be Nicki Minaj‘s very first #1 song as well (unless you count “Bedrock” in 2010, which was a Young Money group joint). This sends Bruno Mars down to #2 with “24K Magic” and Alessia Cara down to #3 with “Scars to Your Beautiful”. Wonder Girls launch thesmselves into the Top 5 with “Why So Lonely” at #4 and Green Day are on the verge of departing the Top 5 with “Bang Bang” at #5. Rounding out the Top 10 are “80s Mercedes” by Maren Morris (#6), “Starboy” by The Weeknd & Daft Punk (#7), “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” by Dua Lipa (#8), “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd & Gucci Mane (#9), and a now Camila-less Fifth Harmony with “That’s My Girl” (#10).
