Songs that Need to Become Hits in 2017


The Top Ten

1 Praying - Kesha

It's already a hit - Trucker55

Kesha is back with a vengeance! This isn't just a song, it's a statement. The best song she has ever made without a doubt. Please let this be a hit! - tonyb500


2 Move Your Body - Sia

Best Sia Song Ever! - cs0417

This Should be popular. So underrated

Everything of Sia is the best

Love that song

3 Heavydirtysoul - Twenty One Pilots

Not the best but not the worst

This song is amazing. This should be high on this list and the Billboard Top 100!

Why this song? In my opinion, this is the WORST SONG Twenty One Pilots has ever released! And this is coming from a die hard Twenty One Pilots fan.

It's on it's way to become a hit thank god.
While it hasn't even touched the Hot 100 yet, I've been starting to hear it on some SiriusXM channels like Hits 1, so it just might make it. - JamesBourne

4 All Time Low - Jon Bellion

One of the finest songs I've heard in 2017.

Yes! Jon Bellion needs his time. - galaco

My guilty pleasure of 2016 and 2017

Relatable and Catchy. What else does a song need - cs0417

5 Talking to Myself - Linkin Park

Rip chester Bennington

Five in peace Chester Bennington. :'( - tonyb500

Yes. - ProPanda

6 Do You Mind - DJ Khaled
7 That's What I Like - Bruno Mars

I love that its number 3 in the USA this week so it looks like it is going to be a bonafide hit there. Hopefully in my home country of Australia, it cracks the top 10, This is some of Bruno's best work and arguably the best song off the ridiculously too short 24k Magic. - crowdiegal

Well, it was one of the biggest hits of the year in the US, but only hit No. 5 in Australia, disappointingly. - JackMM

Burno came a long way and I loveee this songg! makes you just want to dance and I lovee the video too its different

8 Pedestal - Jackie Evancho

A first time "pop" masterpiece from the voice of the 21st century. Jackie gives us another reason to love her incredible gift. - Buggy01

Really well-written pop song by Jackie - and a cool video too! - BobG

9 Hey Hey Hallelujiah - Rachel Platten Feat. Andy Grammer

So catchy best song on the Wildfire album - cs0417

10 Greedy - Ariana Grande

Her best song so far ♥

The Contenders

11 That's My Girl - Fifth Harmony

Don't think this song is going up on the charts anytime soon, sad they didn't promote it - MistyMay113

12 Secrets - The Weeknd

It actually IS his next single.

This has to be his next single

13 Walk on Water - Eminem

Is a good song that isn't on the radio. Should be a hit.

14 Greenlight - Pitbull

I think this is a nice song, especially the chorus. 9/10.

15 Water Under the Bridge - Adele
16 Words - Daya
17 Clumsy - Britney Spears

Why Clumsy on #18? there are 100% better Glory songs...


18 Stone - Alessia Cara Feat. Sebastien Kole
19 Chunky - Bruno Mars

I like this song! - TheFourthWorld


20 Run Up - (Feat. Partynextdoor & Nicki Minaj)
21 I Would Like - Zara Larsson

I would like this not to be a hit.

Zara Larsson will be most successful if she just stands there looking pretty, and keeps her mouth shut.

It's a so fun song. - WonkeyDude98

22 Seventeen - Alessia Cara


23 Over and Over - The Goo Goo Dolls

I like the style of this song, not too much pop, not too much rock. The lyrics are smooth and hits a high note. Great song!

Well, this just fell of the top 40 on adult pop songs, the only thing that guaranteed it any success so goodbye to that - ProPanda

24 Angel Down - Lady Gaga
25 Never Got Away - Colbie Caillat
26 Liability - Lorde
27 Still Breathing - Green Day

Best song of the year (for me). Other songs from the album were good. But none of them were better than this one. - zxm

Come on, it's rising on the rock charts, let's get it to crossover! - ProPanda

28 No More Sad Songs - Little Mix

If this is the version that's on the album than yes, it should be a hit.
If it's the version with Machine Gun Kelly than that can get the gutter and die a quick death. - crowdiegal

29 Lovesick - Jacob Whitesides
30 Reminder - The Weeknd
31 Overdose - Alessia Cara
32 Speak to Me - Amy Lee

I'd beg for this to be a hit, but at the same's better than it's in obscurity. - DCfnaf

33 Rainbow - Sia
34 Million Reasons - Lady Gaga
35 All We Know - The Chainsmokers

In 2016, this song had no playthrough, except I heard it once in Florida. I really like this song. Hopefully this or setting fires is a hit

36 Love - Lana Del Rey
37 Trust Issues - Olivia O Brien
38 You Don't Know Me - Jax Jones
39 Scars to Your Beautiful - Alessia Cara

Well. We went too far. Sure, this became a hit and I'm glad, but my god the overplay! - ProPanda

I absolutely love this song - catlinelizabethlaufeyson

YES. - WonkeyDude98

40 Shed a Light - Robin Schulz, David Guetta & Cheat Codes


41 Spit Out the Bone - Metallica
