The Contenders: Page 3
Seeing this in the top 30 makes me happy. - ProPanda
Only at 100? This is the best song I've heard all year! Really catchy chorus, energetic vocals, punchy beat, and an all-around happy and joyful vibe! Why Work and One Dance are above this, I don't know.
How does one dislike this? - ProPanda
This song got the best music
For a song that tries to be sexy, it couldn't be further. I've listened to enough Nine Inch Nails and Stabbing Westward to know what sexy sounds like, and this isn't it. First off Zayn, you're a former member of a talentless group of British pretty boys whose fan base consists entirely of brain-dead menstrual teenage girls. Trying to sound sexy is beyond you. Second, even if you were to ignore your history, this song is so generic it's not even funny. Maybe if you were to come out and say that this whole solo career is just a joke, and that you're trying to make fun of the abundance of other pop stars who have done the same thing as you, I would have tons of respect for you. But as it stands, you're a sellout, leaving a sellout band to make sellout songs under a sellout image. - AngryByrd
For a song about sex and the pillowtalk afterwards, this song is so gloriously over the top and ridiculous. The lyrics equate it to a warzone, and the chorus is so explosively cheesy, I just can't take it seriously. And yet, I love this song. Probably fits in "So bad it's good" territory. - Zach808
I don't know if anyone else would be able to pull this off. ZAYN has an incredibly massive voice with a lot of energy and power behind it, which lets him pull off the fact that he's comparing pillowtalk to a warzone. The beat is absolutely incredible, what with the jumpy barking synths, and the explosion on the chorus, it's so genuine that even ZAYN knows that he can't take this seriously. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98
This is zayn's best song!V 46 Comments
THIS SONG IS OVERUSED, REPETITIVE, AND ANNOYING! - Catacorn
This song is so dumb, it's actually kind of hilarious. Hilariously awful, if you will. It's so bad, I laugh every time I see some white kid dancing to it because my god, do they look so stupid.
Not sure what to think of this one. I mean, yeah, the backing vocals are obnoxious, Desiigner is basically diet Future, the lyrics are garbage, and the beat was literally bought of YouTube for $200, but something must be making people like it. It's probably that it's so horrifically awful that it must be seen to be believed. - WonkeyDude98
This song got me so hypeV 36 Comments
One of the best songs this year for sure. Her vocals are insane.
This should be in the top ten AT LEAST. I've never been a huge Rihanna fan, but this song just does it for me. The vocals are amazing, and emotional, and raw. The lyrics are beautifully crafted. There's not a single bad thing about this song.
Timeless masterpiece, her vocals are stunning in both studio and live versions. - DaisyandRosalina
7 years above this? - DaisyandRosalinaV 1 Comment
Why Is This Trash So High? , Besides Its From 2017 - VideoGamefan5
Before I heard this song I thought taylor retired. She was supposed to release an album this fall. She didn't. At least she has this song - helloitsme
I got bored of this song real quick but Zayn is better than the entire 1D combined - LightningBlade
Zayn sounds like Charlie Puth. Taylor did a pretty sheetty job.
And the fact that 50 Shades of Gray has a sequel. UUGH *groans* Screw this phucking garbage. 1/5. - AlphaQ
It was annoying that this song was overplayed, and I like it. This Is What You Came For is good --- something 2016 needed. - madoog
This song is pretty good. - Powerfulgirl10
This song is trash
This song is meh. it reminds me of back to school. don't ask why. - BITBBHandBluesCluesFanatic101V 11 Comments
This doesn't have any actual meaning other than that Beebo is secretly Satan, but I really really like it. - AnonymousChick
This song BLEW ME AWAY! - toptenqueen
Weeknd's collaboration with Daft Punk pays off good. Song is simple but has good musical value. Niall Horan's "This town" comes in close for me; but "I feel it coming" is richer and more melodic.
This song is amazing, and I'm not being hyperbolic. - Satire
I don't even know why, but somehow this, Starboy, and False Alarm all have this too-perfect charm that makes them cut through any critical faculties for me. While this isn't as amazing as either the piccolo and bass-heavy awesomeness of Starboy or the gritty, willowy False Alarm, it's easily the slickest, most fun song The Weeknd has ever made, and when you consider the content...well, that should be no surprise.
Fun fact: this sample is the first time I've listened to this. Thank you Abel, for being abysmal at YouTube. 7/5 - WonkeyDude98
This is a great song! Please vote this up, at least in the top 20! - micahisthebest
This song could have been a bit better if the man's vocals "your love is fade / I feel it" were said once in the beginning of the song, immediately followed by Kanye's vocals. The beginning part could have been better. I like this song, though. This song is good. - madoog
Post Malone made something that didn't make me contemplate why I like music? Wow. 5/5 - WonkeyDude98
Glad to see this becoming something. One of my favorites off of Pablo. 5/5 - ProPanda
This song is actually really good. The rhythm is pretty chill. - McgillacuddyV 1 Comment
Justin Bieber really turned to an artist who tries out a lot of new things, writes and performs a variety of genres and moods and and improved his overall quality to extremes. I honestly think he is one of the best pop artists of our time now.
Nevertheless, I am pretty sure this song was released 2015. - Martin_Canine
I DO love myself for not being one of the countless other young people who worship this guy. I can say one positive thing about Bieber's new stuff: he actually sounds like a guy. A hormonal, overly emotional guy, but a guy nonetheless. Other than that though, this song is way too simple. In fact, the word simple probably makes it sound even more complex than it actually is. And the lyrics are nothing special either. It's another one of those cases of "I don't care. That's why I put the time in to write, record, and pay for a song about how much I don't care." It's overrated, boring, and, well, it's Justin Bieber. - AngryByrd
Not gonna lie, Bieber's new stuff is dope. - Puga
Overplayed and overrated. Sure SOME of the purpose songs were okay, but this son sucks. And we all know he's talking about himself. But he insists its about Selena.V 23 Comments
Not sure why Demi is not in the Top 5. It's clear that very few people understand music or talent. Most talented young beautiful woman in the last 5 years.
This song is great and catchy, by the way it was released in January of this year so it is not from 2015
This song is awesome. - Powerfulgirl10
This is the BEST song of all time for me! Vote this up! - micahisthebest
Good! 4/5V 7 Comments
I just listened to this song again on coffee shop, first thought I had is this man is having great taste of music since Alan Walker one of my favorites.
