The best songs that were in the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2017 or 2018.

The Top Ten

1 No Tears Left to Cry - Ariana Grande No Tears Left to Cry - Ariana Grande

Deserved to be her first number one! - HeyItzGrace

This is mediocre. - XxembermasterxX

This song got to #3 shortly after its April release, but was sadly kept from #1 by an okay Drake song. This is actually a really good song and one of her best songs in my opinion. - allamassal

2 Thank U, Next - Ariana Grande Thank U, Next - Ariana Grande

yes! - HeyItzGrace

3 Finesse - Bruno Mars Finesse - Bruno Mars

This song was #3 on the Hot 100 in January 2018 (arguably the best month in 2018 when it comes to the Billboard charts), and it's a very catchy and fun song. - allamassal

4 Love on the Brain - Rihanna

I think this is a really, really great song. "No Tears Left to Cry" is also a fantastic song.

5 Bad at Love - Halsey

Halsey is so awesome - BreakFastBeast2005

This song was #5 on the Hot 100 around January 2018. It's a really good song and is probably the best song on the radio now other than the Shawn Mendes song in my opinion. - allamassal

6 Sign of the Times - Harry Styles

This song was #4 on the Hot 100 in April 2017. This song has good vocals, and great instrumentation. - allamassal

7 Believer - Imagine Dragons

Love it. It's totally epic - LightningStrike

This song was #4 on the Hot 100 in August 2017. This was actually my favorite song that summer, and it has a great message even though the chorus could have been better. - allamassal

Pretty good - B1ueNew

8 ... Ready for It? - Taylor Swift

I think this song should be in the top 5. I like it very much.

NO! - LightningStrike

Oh wow. The anonymous visitor who keeps voting for this song over and over again got it to #2. - allamassal

9 Without Me - Halsey
10 Humble - Kendrick Lamar

The Contenders

11 Feel It Still - Portugal. The Man

Overplayed as hell - B1ueNew

This song was #4 on the Hot 100 sometime in the fall of 2017. This song has a great message in the lyrics. - allamassal

12 Boo'd Up - Ella Mai
13 Million Reasons - Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is always great. This song deserves to be in the top 5.

14 Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift

I really like this song, it's really cool.

HELL NO. - LightningStrike

15 Starboy - The Weeknd
16 Havana - Camila Cabello

This song was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for one week in early 2018. This was the last #1 song before the rappers and mediocre rising stars started taking over. - allamassal

Umm, yeah no thank you, I rather listen to KSI because I may hate KSI but I don't hear his songs on the radio, only on youtube - B1ueNew

17 Mask Off - Future
18 Call Out My Name - The Weeknd
19 Black Beatles - Rae Sremmurd
20 Girls Like You - Maroon 5

This needs to be above look what you made me do that song is awful

I actually agree, this should be switched with Look What You Made Me Do. - allamassal

This song is #2 on the Hot 100 right now, but it isn't really that good (being more of a bland pop tune than a catchy bop) so I put it down here. - allamassal

21 Better Now - Post Malone

This song is #5 on the Hot 100 right now, and it isn't bad for Post Malone, especially when compared to his other songs like Rockstar and Psycho which are just typical mediocre pop songs. - allamassal

22 Look Alive - Blocboy JB
23 Nice for What - Drake
24 Too Good at Goodbyes - Sam Smith

This song was #4 on the Hot 100 in November 2017. I found this song to be just okay. The song sounds kind of good, but has some bad lyrics. - allamassal

25 I Feel It Coming - The Weeknd
26 Idol - BTS
27 High Hopes - Panic! at the Disco
28 7 Rings - Ariana Grande
29 Lucid Dreams - Juice WRLD
30 Close to Me - Ellie Goulding, Diplo & Swae Lee
31 In My Blood - Shawn Mendes
