Top 100 Songs of 2015 (40-21)

Day 4 here we go!

40. The Hills by The Weeknd

Yeah, you know the song. If you don’t, where have you been for the last six months?

39. 6PM in New York by Drake

“Oh you gotta love it.” If Drake were to have a tell-all; this would be the equivalent.

38. Powerful by Major Lazer ft. Ellie Goulding, Tarrus Riley

Lean On may have gotten the radio play, but this is the pinnacle of Peace is the Mission.

37. Visions (Boehm Remix) by Cheat Codes, Boehm

Cheat Codes dropped one of the EDM songs of the year when they collaborated with Boehm for the remix of Visions.

36. Try Me by Jason Derulo ft. Jennifer Lopez, Matoma

Jason Derulo tried his hand at trop house and it worked really well. Look for this to hit the radio sooner rather than later.

35. Peanut Butter Jelly by Galantis

This could be the party song of the year. The combo of electronic and disco sounds are super cool.

34. This Could Be Us by Rae Sremmurd

The fun loving duo from Atlanta transforms the meme into something more serious. A rare serious note from the group.

33. Diamonds Dancing by Drake, Future

On the What a Time to be Alive mixtape, this is the song that plays most to Future’s strengths. Drake does a good job adapting to the lethargic, drowsy beat.

32. Move by Luke Bryan

Luke Bryan’s best song off of Kill The Lights has hardly been played! Move is one of the biggest radio snubs of 2015.

31. Blessings by Big Sean ft. Drake, Kanye West

Some may argue that these three are the most powerful rappers out there right now, but whether you believe that or not you’ve got to realize that they back up their star power with their verses (and Drake with the killer hook).

30. King Kunta by Kendrick Lamar

This funk-rap song is the poppiest song off of TPAB. The background beats mirror Kendrick’s intensity, gaining in stature as the song progresses.

29. Here For You by Kygo ft. Ella Henderson

Originally released as an instrumental track, Kygo kills it with the added vocals.

28. Save Dat One For Me by The White Panda

The mix of Lil Dicky and Fetty over the beat (courtesy of Great Good Fine OK) is fantastic. The switch from trap to something more melodically interesting helps the song a lot. Highlight of the song is after the bridge when Fetty comes back with the chorus.

27. Hotline Bling by Drake

This song has blown up after being overshadowed by Charged Up and Right Hand when it was dropped in the summer. Definitely one of the most recognizable songs of the year.

26. Night’s On Fire by David Nail

One of the best country songs released this year with out a question; David Nail has shown over the last few years that he knows how to make a hit song.

25. Baby Blue by Action Bronson ft. Chance the Rapper

Who knew that five minutes of whining would sound good? Chance’s verse is a particular highlight.

24. Perfect (Matoma Remix) by One Direction, Matoma

Matoma uses his beat from Love You Right to spice up the One Direction song. A fantastic remix from the Swedish superstar.

23. Tell Your Friends by The Weeknd

This is vintage stuff from The Weeknd. While his most recent album marked a transition to pop music, this song keeps him in his roots.

22. Trap Queen by Fetty Wap

This is the song that got you saying 1738, the song that put Fetty Wap on the surface, and the song of 2015. What more can I say?

21. Lay It All On Me by Rudimental ft. Ed Sheeran

The song is fantastic. Rudimental decides to take a different note on their music by making something a little more relaxed, and it really works.

Which song is number 1 of the year? All will be revealed tomorrow!
