Best Songs of 2018 Who Have Reached Number 1 in the Billboard Hot 100


The Top Ten

1 Thank U, Next - Ariana Grande

One of the only songs that had meaning that got to number one -.- - HeyItzGrace

One of the best number ones ever. It has been number one for three weeks and I hope there will be more.

That was really refreshing because before this (in 2018), it was always decent meaningless overrated songs like maroon 5, drake, and cardi who went #1. I'm so happy for her and this song really great!

No! This song is so annoying! And it has too much swearing! - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

Umm honestly there are barely any curse words you hear Ariana drop the f bomb when the main chorus comes in but the whole rest of the song barely any cursing... - tacoperson

2 Havana - Camila Cabello

This is the Gucci Gang of pop. IOW, it's not good. - GeneralJP

Way too overplayed. Young Thug is the only good part of the song. Camila repeats the chorus about the same amount of times as the chorus in Lil Pump's Gucci Gang. She also sounds annoying and the oo na nas just sound bad. - YeezySeasonApproaching

3 This is America - Childish Gambino

The music video gives this song a greater meaning, but it's still great out of context. - toptensdotcom

What else could I vote for other than Sicko Mode? - GeneralJP

This had a much more important message that Ariana's whiny Thank U, Next.

I can't stand Thank U, Next so I voted the deepest no. 1 this year.

4 Perfect - Ed Sheeran

I know it’s overplayed, but looking back 2018 was such a mess so compared to everything else that went to number this deserved it the most. Even I was surprised this went to 1

This is a pretty nice song. - allamassal

Overplayed Ed Sheeran song - YeezySeasonApproaching

5 God's Plan - Drake

I like this song

Overplayed but a banger that still kind of sounds good - YeezySeasonApproaching

I picked this one cause drake sings it right and it's not like he's a bad πŸ‘Ž singer it's because he is the BEST WING IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD 🌎 I like him because his songs made me so so great stuff so.and sure to you know VOTE YES ON THIS please please I'LL GIVE YOU A THOUSAND DOLLARS of you do it ok but he is so so GOOD oh dam my battery has gone out but give a vote please

6 Sad! - Xxxtentacion

RIP X. This track is very well made and showcases X's pop side. - YeezySeasonApproaching

Mmm baby I don't' undahstand yuh

Mm-The way I feelin ummbubuh

Mmm baby I don't' undahstand yuh

7 Nice for What - Drake

A very different and good track from Drake. The sample is great and his voice sounds less annoying than usual. - YeezySeasonApproaching

This song is better than God's Plan, and way better than In My Feelings. - allamassal

8 Sicko Mode - Travis Scott

Sicko mode or mo bamba?

Bad? No.
Bohemian Rhapsody of rap music? No. - oneshot

9 Psycho - Post Malone

Post sounds great. He soars overs the well produced beat. - YeezySeasonApproaching

10 Girls Like You (feat. Cardi B) - Maroon 5

So generic and simple. - Userguy44

A very generic and terrible track. Dumb lyrics, dumb beat and way too overplayed. Only good part of the song was Cardi's decent verse. - YeezySeasonApproaching

I like this song a lot! I don't care what people say!

The Contenders

11 In My Feelings - Drake

This song I'm netrual on. It's a thing floating on the airwaves that didn't even last for 25 weeks. - oneshot

NO! This crap did not deserve to be on the chart at all, let alone #1 for 10 weeks! - allamassal

It is kind of overplayed but the track is a banger and the beat slaps - YeezySeasonApproaching

Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding? So you never ever leave from beside me, and I want ya, and I need ya sockdkdidjjwjejesujsjsjdususjsjsjsjs

12 I Like It - Cardi B

I've lost my faith in the chart. - XxembermasterxX

An annoying, overplayed song. Luckily it was only #1 for a week, but the song that dethroned it is even worse. - allamassal

Amazing beat and Cardi sounds great on it. A real banger - YeezySeasonApproaching

13 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

It may not have been #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 but, following the OUTSTANDING worldwide success of the "Bohemian Rhapsody" movie, the song was most certainly in the charts & so was the soundtrack to the movie.

This is NOT 2018! This is from 1975. Get it right!

Fantastic song, but this isn't from 2018. - Misfire

Fantastic yas queeen hi sisters

14 Hero - Pegboard Nerds

Love it! best 2018 song

15 Tunnel Vision - Subtact
16 God is a Woman - Ariana Grande
17 No Tears Left to Cry - Ariana Grande
18 Falling Down - Lil Peep & XXXTentacion
19 Breathin - Ariana Grande
