Which song was most popular in 2017?
Posted On July 28, 2021
Recode has picked its 2017 list of the top 20 songs in the world, and there were some surprises.
The top 10 songs on the list are all by women, as well as a handful of men.
And as the women-only list grows larger, it’s a good thing.
But we didn’t get to the top of the list, so let’s dive into the men-only top 10.
Bryan Adams’ “Buckaroo Banzai” was #1 for the first time.
The song has been on the Billboard Hot 100 for more than a year and it’s the second-most popular song on the chart, behind only Drake’s “Hotline Bling” with 1.8 million.
The chart is also home to several songs from Drake, who was #3 on the Hot 100 in January.
But Adams’ song wasn’t just #1.
The top 10 was led by a surprise: the song that took over Billboard’s Hot 100 chart in January is now the #1 song in America for the week ending February 7.
The chart’s top 10 is a lot of work for a group of six people who’ve worked in music for over 20 years.
But the list is filled with the songs you’d expect from a Billboard chart: the likes of “Bad and Boujee” by Taylor Swift and the hit song “We Got It From Here…
Thank You 4 Your Service” by Drake.
The list also features three of the biggest artists in pop music, with Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Beyonce on the top 10, as did Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift.
But we also got some surprises in the chart’s other genres.
It includes hits by country singer Willie Nelson, country singer Jhené Aiko, country singers Lizzy Grant and Lauryn Hill, and the country duo The Vultures.
And it was a surprise to see two of the country albums that have dominated Billboard’s charts for the last year, and a surprise that didn’t come from a chart.
“You Are the Best” by Katy Perry and Justin Bieber took over the top spot on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 100 Greatest Albums list for the fourth year in a row.
And we got a surprise hit on the song’s top 40.
The “Dancing With the Stars” theme song for the show was #2, while the number-one hit of the week, “We Found Love,” by Taylor Hill and Nick Jonas, was #4.
The Top 40 chart has always been a big place for music to shine, and 2017 was no different.
The Top 40 was also a huge place for artists to debut their songs on TV, and that helped the chart get a boost from the new network.
Billboard said that this year’s chart will likely grow to more than 1,000 songs, including a whopping 6,500 on TV.
