FearlessRiOT Top 20 Music Countdown [May 26, 2017]

Gorillaz would probably have more #1 songs if they released music more often than they actually do, or if the Top 20 Countdown started around 2005 when “Feel Good Inc.” and “Dare” were released. In that was the case, “Feel Good Inc.” actually would have been #1 several times over. But since this countdown started years later in 2008, Gorillaz haven’t charted much due to their sparse releases since then, with their sole #1 song before now being their 2010 Bobby Womack and Mos Def collaboration “Stylo”. Seven years later, they finally land a second #1 song with “Saturnz Barz” sending Sabrina Carpenter‘s “Thumbs” down to #2. Paramore are down to #3 with “Hard Times”, Bruno Mars sits at #4 with “That’s What I Like”, and Kendrick Lamar lands at #5 with “HUMBLE.” Rounding out the Top 10 are “Paradise” by S.E.S. at #6, “Stay” by Zedd & Alessia Cara at #7, “Invisible” by Christina Grimmie at #8, “Catch Me When I Fall” by Stitched Up Heart at #9, and “I’m the One” by DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, Quavo, & Lil Wayne at #10, which make it the first Top 10 for Khaled, Chance, and Quavo. We also have two countdown debuts this week, both from hard rock/heavy metal acts as Chris Jericho‘s band Fozzy charts their fourth song on the Top 20 and the Maria Brink-led In This Moment charts their sixth.
