Chart Topping Songs of 2017

1. Selena Gomez: “Bad Liar”

The career of Selena Gomez, born on the 22nd of July 1992, has witnessed tremendous refinement, most especially in her vocal technique. Bad Liar bears testament to this assertion. The story behind the song shows how vulnerable the American singer-actress feels around her crush. This song was neither a big hit last year nor the biggest hit belonging to Selena Gomez. Her single, featuring Kygo, is still her most influential song so far and is titled It Ain’t Me. Still, Bad Liar was the most loved and fascinating of her songs on top 40 radio in 2017.

Selena Gomez’s career has been a successful one as she has sold over seven million albums as well as twenty-two million singles worldwide. She also has the greatest followers on Instagram.  Gomez is a winner of several awards including 1 American Music Award, 2 Billboard Women in Music Awards, 1 ALMA Award, among many other accolades.

2. Cardi B: “Bodak Yellow”

Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, is a new artist that released Bodak Yellow last year. This was her debut single and reached the top spot on the US Billboard Hot 100. Cardi B is an American songwriter, the rapper as well as a media personality, who was born on the 11th of October 1992, in The Bronx, New York, and raised there. She started gaining popularity when she discussed her career as a stripper on her social media pages. This revelation, along with her no filter life approach, made her an internet celebrity via Instagram.

3. Calvin Harris feat. Frank Ocean and Migos: “Slide”

The Slide is the most massive collaborative effort between a rapper, a singer and a producer since Yeah. The song is a huge success and was used in Insecure (season 2 of the trailer).

4. Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee feat. Justin Bieber: “Despacito” (Remix)

Despacito (remix) has a solo opening guitar line, made by the Caribbean talent, Daddy Yankee. This was followed by an Ay that reveals the Latinness in the hit and then came the voice of Justin Bieber singing the number one Latin song on this planet in English.

The original version of the song, Despacito, was already a popular hit when Justin Bieber listened to in a Bogota night-club and requested that he wanted to feature in the remixed version. The recording of the remix was completed within a day and released within 2 days. Bieber’s collaboration, which was done first in English and then primarily in Spanish later, spurred Despacito to achieve the status of one of the biggest single hits of all time. The song notched sixteen weeks at number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts. Also, it tied the record that was set by Mariah Carey as well as One Sweet Day produced by Boyz II Men’s several years earlier.

5. Lil Uzi Vert: “XO TOUR Llif3”

The last song that would be mentioned in this write-up is XO Tour Llif3 by Lil Uzi Vert. The real name of this hip-hop artist is Sycamore Woods, and he is based in Philadelphia. He first became recognized in the public when he released his first single Money Longer, followed by many mix-tapes like The Perfect Luv Tape and Luv is Rage.
