FearlessRiOT Top 20 Music Countdown [April 28th, 2017]

It is very rare when a song debuts in the Top 2 of the Top 20 Countdown; digging back in the archives (which I’ll probably try to upload at a later date) will find only a few examples of it, one of the most notable being “The Climb” from Miley Cyrus debuting at #2 all the way back in March of 2009 before sliding into the #1 spot the following week. This week, Top 20 Countdown mainstays Paramore accomplish the first half of that feat; the leadoff single from their upcoming album After Laughter is called “Hard Times” (I wonder if Dusty Rhodes partially influenced that title) and it is their 15th song to make the chart, making a very strong #2 debut. The song that kept it from debuting at #1? “Stay” from Zedd & Alessia Cara. It’s Zedd’s first #1 song and Alessia Cara’s 4th; the song is also reportedly set to be performed on the Radio Disney Music Awards this weekend. Bruno Mars slips down to #3 with “That’s What I Like” while Gorillaz, who’s new album HUMANZ is in stores now, stay put with “Saturnz Barz” at #4 and Kendrick Lamar launches into the #5 spot with “HUMBLE.” Rounding out the Top 10 are “Thumbs” from Sabrina Carpenter (#6), “The Fighter” from Keith Urban & Carrie Underwood (#7), “Shape of You” from Ed Sheeran (#8), “Invisible” from Christina Grimmie (#9), and “Oh My God” from The Pretty Reckless (#10). Along with Paramore, there are also countdown debuts from Stitched Up Heart and RDMA’s co-host Sofia Carson.
