Most Overplayed Songs in 2018

The most overplayed songs of 2018. The order of the songs at the start is based on overall airplay of 2018. It doesn't matter when each song here was released, they just have to receive enormous airplay in 2018.

The Top Ten

1 Girls Like You - Maroon 5

This song is even more overplayed than The Middle. I heard this song 6 times in a few hours a couple weeks ago, and it still plays constantly. Get this to #1 please. - allamassal

I agree it moved from what about us then this dumb song which is a typical pop song about girl's (obviously) - XxMontrealxXRBLX

Get off the Billboard's please stop playing this song 102392 times an hour

This song is so annoying, especially Cardi B's guest appearance (I don't like Cardi B). I hear this in the car nearly every time I put on the pop station while taking a ride. - Target

I've always loved Maroon 5, but Cardi B is complete trash

2 Perfect - Ed Sheeran

Its good song but does it really need to be played 10 times a day at least on like every station?

My mom nearly grounds me for changing the radio station on this song

Aw man that's horrible and also what kind of mom grounds their child just because they want to listen to something else like what - Lpsgirl

I hate this overplayed song too much I wish that there could be different songs on my radio at my car when I go to places like Jason Derulo music and old rihanna music as well. screw the song Perfect by Ed Sheeran.

It's overplayed, and to be honest, cliche.

3 The Middle - Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey

I really hate this song in my opinion and your right it is played on the radio like a lot and sometimes I can't get it out of my head so sorry if some of you guys like this song but I don't like and to be honest I like stay the night and clarity better - Lpsgirl

Yesterday I think I heard this 4 times. This is like the Closer of 2018, a song with a generic theme that got played constantly on the radio, which was only redeemed by a cool instrumental in my opinion. - allamassal

I don't support Billboard's upcoming streaming rules in July, but I will support them just to kick this out

For god's sake, 13 weeks in the Top Ten? Can't it just die yet? - StarlightSpanks

Gosh. It's so annoying

4 Havana - Camila Cabello

Finally, I am so glad I can talk about this horrible song. I don't like Perfect and I will say it is very overplayed, but I've heard this crap way more on the radio than Perfect. It is just as overplayed as Slowly (Despacito). This girl's voice is the worst thing ever. Worse than Chad Kroeger. She tries to imitate Rihanna and she is miserable at it and the lyrics make no sense at all. So glad it is off the Billboard charts. I never want to hear this song again for the rest of my life.

This and Never be the Same are easily the worst songs of 2018 both overplayed and everywhere no matter how sick you are of hearing it. The girl's auto tune is so obvious it's embarrassing and her voice is either in low moan mode or screechy mode but this? This is just the worst.

I love this song and think it was one of 2017's best pop songs but I have to admit the radio stations went a little overboard with the overplay on this one. - Atham

What? I actually like this song

5 I Like It - Cardi B

I hear this constantly on the radio, and this is somehow #1 on the charts! What has music come to?! - allamassal

Why overplay a song that will never be good regardless of how many times you play it on the radio, no matter how many time they play this song it will always sound like Trash. Waste of time, play good music for once

This song is filled to the brim with swear words, and definitely not radio friendly, how can it be overplayed? - TheInsomniac

I hear this on the radio an awful lot though. I think they censor the swear words - allamassal

Never heard it on the radio - XxMontrealxXRBLX

6 In My Feelings - Drake

I HATE this pile of crap made by Drake. Hell, even JUSTIN BIEBER's song BABY is better than this, and that's really saying something! - IceFoxPlayz

I heard this noise 3 times on the radio today, plus this is #1 on the Hot 100. I hear I Like It more than this though. - allamassal

Good news! I actually went in the car for about an hour in total today and didn't hear this song at all. (plays We Are The Champions) - allamassal

I love this song so much

V 9 Comments
7 New Rules - Dua Lipa

This song is getting old.

I would have probably enjoyed this song if it wasn't played as much as it was on the radio. One time, I heard this song playing on 3 stations at once. - allamassal

Great song but overplayed. - ZeroBlaster

Dua Lipa was good in the beginning, but every new song of her is worse. - Userguy44

V 3 Comments
8 Psycho - Post Malone

Yesterday when we were listening to the radio, this song was on 2 stations at once. - allamassal

I liked this song before it got overplayed but now I hate it - venomouskillingmachine

I hate Post Malone but this is one of his worst songs EVER!

This is the worst Post Malone song I've ever heard.2/5😑

V 1 Comment
9 God's Plan - Drake

Drake's robotic vocals combined with the song being boring overall are why I don't like this song. I also hear this a lot on the radio, and it was even on 2 stations at once one time. - allamassal

This song is so annoying - Lpsgirl

I hate this song it's so annoying

I don't like this song - Spongehouse

10 Meant to Be - Bebe Rexha

Absolutely awful, just like every other thing Florida Georgia Line has done.

I barely hear this song on the radio anymore. Thank God! Oh wait, other garbage songs took its place. - allamassal

At least this song's starting to die on the radio. - mattpineapple616

Oh yeah. It's Bebe Rexha! - Userguy44

The Newcomers

? Sweet but Psycho - Ava Max
? In My Mind - Dynoro & Gigi D'agostino

I’m so sick of this song! Hope it will die soon. - Userguy44

The Contenders

11 Thunder - Imagine Dragons

Believer was good. This, on the other hand... - Cyri

My opinion is a bit biased because I am a diehard fan of Imagine Dragons, but I actually like the meaning of this song. I think the chorus could've been a bit more creative than just, Thunder, feel the thunder, lightning then the thunder over and over. But in my opinion, this song is pretty inspirational - TheInsomniac

Hate them so much. I don't know why people even like this trash song.

Jesus Christ I hear this song at least twice a day. And the worst part is, it always gets stuck in your head!

12 Let You Down - NF

This and Lie are so overplayed that I hear this and Lie in my head. - B1ueNew

NF deserves more credit but this wasn't his best work - Emofag

The beginning of the song is awesome. ( in my opinion ) - IceFoxPlayz

I don’t think so, I don’t even know this song.

13 What About Us - P!NK

I heard this on the radio today going to the mall, and then not too long later it came on again in one of the stores. Has to be on here. - allamassal

I heard this song twice in one car ride when we went out to dinner tonight (I wrote this on June 30, 2018). It's been more than 10 months since this song came out. Top 10 material - allamassal

I love this song but its played literally everywhere haha

A song with a great meaning, but played way too much. - gucciorisa

V 3 Comments
14 Finesse - Bruno Mars

Seriously?! I hardly hear this song on the radio ever! The Middle came out not too long ago, and that song is already way more overplayed than this.

This song is so irritating

I love it but it is kinda overplayed - StarlightSpanks

Overplayed but good. - Epikrika

V 2 Comments
15 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

This song always plays SO MUCH and it annoys me to no end. I will turn off the radio if I hear this song start playing! Although I think Good Old Days by Macklemore is WAY MORE overplayed... That should SO be on this list. I used to sort of like it, but now it drives me insane

I actually barely hear either of those songs anymore, and I rarely hear this song on a non-variety station. - allamassal

Seriously, hear it for so long, drives me nuts

Oh my god overdone to the moon

UGHH! this song blows. - DaringXx

16 Rockstar - Post Malone

This song has so much swearing that you can literally hear all the parts where they took out the swear words. But yeah, it's overplayed and annoying. - CharismaticKat

Great song! I don't know what’s wrong with you people - Amaimon

It’s horrible, overly auto tuned, and annoying, but I don’t hear it that much.

So this is how popular this guy is:

I was at our schools talent show and a teacher said she was going to a Post Malone concert.

Everyone cheered even though no one knew what was going on

17 Lights Down Low - Max

Lights Down Low is pretty decent. But the radio plays it OVER and OVER and OVER, but the rate is becoming slower to where I live. - MissRWBY202

This is a worse version of something Shawn Mendes would do. Hate it.

All I hear is the chorus

Damn I hate this song so much!

V 2 Comments
18 No Tears Left to Cry - Ariana Grande

Getting sick of the tune

I barely hear this, honestly... I hear more Delicate than this. - MissRWBY202

This is played way too much :/ it comes after every other song!

I really dislike this song because this song on my radio plays 24 times or something.

19 Never Be the Same - Camila Cabello

This, along with Psycho and I Like It, are the 3 most overplayed songs on the radio right now. I hear this song on 2 stations at once a lot (that happened just today) and one day in April it was even on 3 stations at once. - allamassal

I love Camila Cabello but I don't know why she uses so much auto-tune, when she can sing - BreakFastBeast2005

I love this song!

I heard this song so many times. It’s not even that good...

20 Delicate - Taylor Swift

I find her whole album trash - NightJinx

Taylor Swift is just ANNOYING! - Amaimon

Hey at least it was better than look what you made me do - LifeIsAPolaroid

Before we thought this would be a flop like End Game, Ready For It, and LWYMMD
Now it looks like it’s gonna be one of the biggest sleeper hits of the year. - StarlightSpanks

21 No Brainer - DJ Khaled

This song is stupid and annoying just another dull pop/rap song no thank you - BreakFastBeast2005


22 Sorry Not Sorry - Demi Lovato

By now all 2017 fall hits have all but died out, except this one (and What About Us, but that's a different story). I still hear this twice in a car ride often. - allamassal

I'm not sorry because this song was created - Hummingbirdf

I think Tell Me You Love Me is played more than this, and it’s better, so that’s good.

I hate this song so much. Its mean I hate sassy come at me bitch songs.

23 Pray For Me - The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar

Good song though - judo8alex

Only popular because of 2 overrated rappers/artists and it's from an overrated movie - B1ueNew

My gosh I heard this so much back in February - B1ueNew

I only started to hear it a lot around March/April, although I did hear it once in February. - allamassal

My version
Someone cut me
Someone shoot me
Someone kill me
Someone poison me

24 Todokete - Lil Meerkat

Look at that album cover... - YeezySeasonApproaching

25 I Love the Smelly Feet - Submarine Man
26 Lucid Dreams - Juice WRLD

I like this song. - IceFoxPlayz

27 Attention - Charlie Puth

Starting to hear this more than Shape Of You at this point now lol - StarlightSpanks

Yesterday, at one point, when we were going to the beach, this was on 2 stations at once. - 6/17/2018 - allamassal

This was made in 2018? - NightJinx

I barely hear this. Plus I love this song. However I only know two verses:
You just want Attention
You don’t want my heart
That’s the only clear words I know lol. :) Fox the Rogue

28 Him & I - G-Eazy & Halsey

I heard it all the time in January-May then I didn't hear it again until September 24, on the way to the first day of my piano class. I heard it again on the 1st my second time at piano class... - AntBlaze

I actually remember hearing this a lot in March/April when it was my favorite song, but now I sadly hear garbage songs like Psycho and I Like It much more than this. - allamassal

I'm actually starting to hear Bad At Love more than this now - allamassal

G-Eazy ruins the song for me - BreakFastBeast2005

30 Ice on My Wrist - Lil Flexer

What radio station would play this garbage - YeezySeasonApproaching

31 Original - Unkle Adams
32 Friends - Marshmello & Anne-Marie

Anne-Marie sounds really immature here, why is this getting more and more overplay? - StarlightSpanks

Whenever I hear this dumb song play, I feel like taking a hammer and smashing the radio. - CharismaticKat

Marshmello is creepy. I don't want to hear this song anywhere. - Target

THis song is also annoying and the lyrics are god awful - BreakFastBeast2005

33 Jackie Chan - Tiësto & Dzeko

I hate the song/rap. Probably because the the rhyme may be made from a 7 year old. - MrCoolC

34 Lie - NF

How is this crap not here? - B1ueNew

Standart playlist for normal radio in November 2018:
A Ariana Grande song
Girls like You
Lie or Let You Down
And repeat it all over again. - B1ueNew

+B1ueNew Don’t call it crap. NF is good and can spit a bar without cussing or saying anything innapropriate. I do agree this is getting a little overboard with airplay

35 Ain't Easy - Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine

Probably one of the most overplayed songs, not to mention its pure garbage - LiterallyMusic3482

There is nothing good about this song - LilliamPumpernickel


36 Love Lies - Khalid & Normani

I heard this song twice on the same station today, but it's growing on me so I don't care that much. - allamassal

They play this 4x in one day.. Please mix up the playlist!

Getting radio airplay all thanks to Normani’s Twitter stans smh - StarlightSpanks

37 God is a Woman - Ariana Grande
38 What Lovers Do - Maroon 5

It was kind of overplayed back in December 2017 and January 2018, but I barely hear it anymore. I'd give anything to at least have this playing constantly instead of I Like It and In My Feelings. - allamassal

I like this. I only heard it on the radio twice in my life.

This song is actually really catchy, the only problem is that the lyrics are kinda sexual but the sexualness is very subtle, so I will give this song a thumbs up. - Patronus

I’d like if this was played more than it currently is.

39 Bodak Yellow - Cardi B

Ugh. I can't stand this song anymore!

Maybe last year but only heard once this year

40 Good Old Days - Macklemore

This song was really overplayed in early 2018 - LiterallyMusic3482

Oh my god this song is beautiful - IceFoxPlayz

41 Whatever It Takes - Imagine Dragons

I don't like this song at all I like their old songs better - Lpsgirl

Overplayed, but I ain't letting overplay spoil this masterpiece for me. - StarlightSpanks

Especially in Cleveland. I stayed in Cleveland for 4 nights, and this song kept playing. Like, come on! - KingSlayer93316

Hmm I don't think I've ever heard this actually played on the radio☹️

42 Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift

Heh, this played in a moderate rate where I live and in a month it was gone. - MissRWBY202

I haven't even heard this on the radio since about October or November 2017, so not overplayed in 2018. - allamassal

This was probably one of the most hated songs of 2018. - IceFoxPlayz

Never heard it in 2018. - MrCoolC

43 All the Stars - Kendrick Lamar & SZA

I never hear Kendrick Lamar on my radio... - KingSlayer93316

Another song I barely even hear anymore. - allamassal

This is never played to be honest..

I liked this song at first but it is seriously getting old because of how overplayed it is. If Kendrick had one more verse maybe I’d like it better. Every time I hear SZA’s screeching I want to jump off a cliff

44 Bad at Love - Halsey

I hear this song so much on the radio its annoying really. She sounds like an idiot singing this and halsey IS NOT an idiot. Not even close.

I respect your opinion on this song, but at least you agree with me that Halsey is not an idiot. - allamassal

I actually heard this song twice today on the same station (written August 14, 2018). Still, in my opinion this is probably the best song on the radio now besides In My Blood. - allamassal

I don't think this song was really played that much, at least where I live. - allamassal

I actually hear this good song more than Him & I now (but only on one station). - allamassal

45 In My Blood - Shawn Mendes

This song doesn't really play that much anymore, but I wish I heard it as much as I hear I Like It now. - allamassal

I like this song but it is on the radio SO MUCH

Such a good song, I love Shawn Mendes.

Yup here it all the time... but stiil love the song and swan mendes

46 F**K All Does Lamas - Submarine Man

Number 40!?!? Get this higher!

I hear this SO MUCH. - B1ueNew

48 Youngblood - 5 Seconds of Summer

This song is starting to get played a lot on the radio now (I heard it twice yesterday), but I think it's okay, especially compared to the other garbage that plays constantly on the radio. - allamassal

This is not a song. This is someone shouting stupid crap to some random, unrecognizable tune.

Oh god, why isn't this on this list?

Where I live, the radio plays this song and "Girls Like You" ALL THE TIME.

every time I turn on the radio...
"Youuung blood! So you want me, so you want me! "

The song itself is tolerable, but not amazing. Not as bad as "One Kiss" (the worst song of 2018) but Youngblood is definitely the most overplayed song of 2018 (along with Girls Like You) - Patronus

At least better than Girls like you. - Userguy44

V 1 Comment
49 Fefe - 6ix9ine & Nicki Minaj

Wait, they're starting to play a 6ix9ine song on the radio? Oh god please no... - allamassal

Only one play of this trash would be considered overplay.

50 Too Good at Goodbyes - Sam Smith

This song was only popular in the last few months of 2017 and very early 2018, it's gone now. - allamassal
