Best Hit Songs of 2017

Any song that has or had chart success in 2017 qualifies. The song doesn't have to be released in 2017.

The Top Ten

1 Love on the Brain - Rihanna

People who didn't liked Work need to listen to this and see the difference: Rihanna's vocals are insane in both studio and live, the old school base is great, one of her best songs. - DaisyandRosalina

What a great song! Those vocals are great this time around (Unlike "Work"). This song is one of her best, along with "Umbrella" and "Disturbia". - DCfnaf

I love this song! - VideoGamefan5

She's got me like A

2 Starboy - The Weeknd

Hit #1 on the 1st week of 2017. Yay! Unfortunately, that wasn't a sign of things to come... - PhenomentalOne

The robot things in the chorus add so much.

3 Malibu - Miley Cyrus

Beautiful Miley

My favorite song by miley

Very decent, not amazing, but listenable - VideoGamefan5

Within 3 months,Malibu has sold already 3 million copies.WOW!

4 Dna - Kendrick Lamar

Dna is one of the best hip hop songs of all time

5 Praying - Kesha

Except for maybe DNA by Kendrick, there is no song with really good lyrics that was a hit this year besides this one. The difference between DNA and this? While DNA was all about making a statement and convincing the person to believe, Praying is about doing the same things, but driving the point home with hands down, the best vocal performance on a hit song this year. Good Job Kesha. I can't wait to hear more.

Yeah, this deserves Number 1. Nothing on the Top 100 currently is as jaw dropping as this. - DCfnaf

This is probably my FAVOURITE song of the year. I don't care what the last few months have to offer, but if it's something better than this I will be incredibly shocked. This is a big step up from stuff like Tik Tok, Blah Blah Blah, We R Who We R, Die Young, come on, etc.


6 Feel It Still - Portugal. the Man
7 Castle on the Hill - Ed Sheeran
8 Water Under the Bridge - Adele

Listened to it today on the radio, Adele never fails to be awesome. Love her. Not her best, but I love it anyway. - DCfnaf

Decent but nowhere near her best song - JamesBourne

Really enjoy the lyrics and meaning

9 I Don't Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift
10 Unforgettable - French Montana

It's good but not worthy of top 10 material, 6.5/10 - Maxo

The Contenders

11 Redbone - Childish Gambino

Finally, a Childish Gambino song that made the top 50, let alone the top 15! Also an amazing and relaxing song to listen to, 9/10. - Maxo

What Redbone would sound like if... - DCfnaf

But Stay Woke

The relaxed vibe just puts you in this trance.

Also, it was a great source for music remixes until it fell off the Hot 100

12 Million Reasons - Lady Gaga

I love this. I love that Lady Gaga is experimenting with every genre, and she's now hit country music. Best song on the album to be honest. - DCfnaf

A beautiful song in which her vocals sound so pure and touching. It gives you a certain, unexplainable feeling, between sadness and hope.

Honestly, this song is pretty weak, it's not that bad, just disappointing. - DaisyandRosalina

I kinda enjoy it, mainly cause she's not using much autotune, not her best song though. - DCfnaf

No offense but I think this song is the worst

14 Paris - The Chainsmokers
15 All Time Low - Jon Bellion
16 Mercy - Shawn Mendes

Who voted for this? This sucks! - Maxo

17 Human - Rag'n'bone Man

Absolutely a top ten. Great voice, along with just a smooth sound to the whole song, simply great.

18 Bad and Boujee - Migos
19 I Feel It Coming - The Weeknd

It is one of the best songs of all time

The Best Song

This song is fantastic, who wouldn't want songs reminiscent of MJ the LEGEND in 2017? - DCfnaf

20 Sign of the Times - Harry Styles

I hate that damn ugly ass song!
