FearlessRiOT Top 20 Music Countdown [Apr. 21st, 2017]

April 21st marked the one-year anniversary of the passing of musical icon Prince, and how fitting that the artist who’s #1 this week happens to be one of the many male pop stars who was obviously influenced by The Purple One himself. Bruno Mars, who’s tribute to Prince was a highlight of this year’s Grammy Awards, reclaims the #1 spot with “That’s What I Like”, sending last week’s #1 song , “The Fighter” from Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood, down to #3. Flying up to #2 meanwhile, is Zedd & Alessia Cara with “Stay”, the song for which they released the official music video for this past week. Gorillaz crack the Top 5 for the first time since 2012’s “DoYaThing” as their Popcaan collaboration “Saturnz Barz” moves up to #4, leaving Sabrina Carpenter sitting still at #5 with “Thumbs”. Rounding out the Top 10 are “Oh My God” from The Pretty Reckless (#6), “Shape of You” from Ed Sheeran (#7), “Love on the Brain” from Rihanna (#8), “HUMBLE.” from Kendrick Lamar (#9), and “Invisible” from Christina Grimmie (#10). The sole countdown debut of the week comes from Harry Styles, making him the second One Direction member to chart a solo song on the countdown.
