161 Boombayah - Blackpink Boombayah - Blackpink
162 Tiimmy Turner - Desiigner Tiimmy Turner - Desiigner

This song is awesome! I've never heard anything like this from Desiigner or Future. I think the sound Desiigner makes are cool and I like it because I'm able to tell that it's Desiigner and not Future cause sometimes I can't tell the difference. I liked Panda and this is a masterpiece. 6/5 - AlphaQ

This song is dark and great. It has an amazing shift at the end. - madoog

I was pretty mixed on Panda, but I'm shocked at how fantastic this is. Talk about chills.

Hmmm... I found this song to be better than Panda (4/5) but this song beats a lot of other songs. Really good. 5/5 - AlphaQ

170 Hollow - Tori Kelly Hollow - Tori Kelly
171 Working for It - Zhu Working for It - Zhu

Zhu is so underrated in the mainstream. He combines dark and chill electronica with heavy jazz influences. More people should know this guy's amazing music. Check out his album "Generationwhy" you won't regret it

172 The Devil's Bleeding Crown - Volbeat The Devil's Bleeding Crown - Volbeat
173 Secrets - The Weeknd Secrets - The Weeknd
174 Black Beatles - Rae Sremmurd Black Beatles - Rae Sremmurd

The song would have been better if Mike Will Made It had not put his name twice in the song to let people know who produced it. It is annoying. I already knew who produced this song. - madoog

And in my opinion Mike WiLL Made It sucks. If you hate him why not call him Mike WiLL Ruined It - AlphaQ

Ahh I'm being cursed because I'm liking this song these days. It's better than Rae's other dumb songs. - AlphaQ

I love this song it's good as I recommend it to anyone.

175 Fade - Kanye West Fade - Kanye West

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. - Mcgillacuddy

177 New Romantics - Taylor Swift New Romantics - Taylor Swift

Honestly, I think that this should have been a hit. Not as big as Wildest Dreams, because that would mean it would instantly wear out on me thanks to overplay. But seriously, this is a great pop song. Upbeat, not bitter, and pleasing. 4/5 - WonkeyDude98

Let's move on to something fresh and original already!

This song is trash

178 Hallelujah - Panic! at the Disco Hallelujah - Panic! at the Disco

This song was released back in spring of last year. And I wouldn't call it one of the better songs from the album. - Zach808

179 Love Yourself - Justin Bieber Love Yourself - Justin Bieber

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

I can't be the only one who hates this. - ProPanda
