Worst Non-Rap Songs that Were Hits in 2018

2018 (in terms of music) mainly sucked because it was just rap music from all sides of America, but it also sucked because most of the non-rap hits were bad too.
This also includes a few certain 2017 hits that were still popular enough in 2018.

The Top Ten

1 Meant to Be - Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line Meant to Be - Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line

While this wasn't on the radio for a long time like The Middle, it was an atrocious disaster and still is to this day. - StarlightSpanks

The only problem I have always had with this song is that it sounds too redneck for me to like. 3/10 - allamassal

2 Never Be the Same - Camila Cabello Never Be the Same - Camila Cabello

So autotuned - BreakFastBeast2005

I wonder how it would sound if Memeski remixed this into something like DespaciNOTE - StarlightSpanks

3 Friends - Marshmello and Anne-Marie Friends - Marshmello and Anne-Marie

This song is immature garbage, and the lyrics "You say you love me, I say you're CRAZY, we're nothing more than friends" and "You really ain't getting away without a fight" prove my point. - allamassal

Anne-Marie sounds really immature here and the production is basic at the most with nothing special on Marshmello's part, at least it didn't hit the Top 10 though. - StarlightSpanks

Apparently someone who stalks you at 2:00 in the morning is merely a "friend" and not someone you report to the police. Ok. 2/10 - DCfnaf

4 Perfect - Ed Sheeran

Screw Ed Sheeran, having 2 #1 songs go 53+ weeks while Twenty One Pilots hasn't been able to get a single Top 40 hit this year - StarlightSpanks

Jumpsuit and Levitate are 2 of the best songs they've done
I respect it if you don't like TOP but let's be real here Ed Sheeran's hits this year are worse - StarlightSpanks

5 Shape of You - Ed Sheeran

And then there's this. - StarlightSpanks

6 The Middle - Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey

Been on radio like forever and wasn't even close to good in the first place. - StarlightSpanks

7 Girls Like You - Maroon 5

It's surely trash and while it's not that annoying now, I can tell it will be

8 Mine - Bazzi

Not only was the excessive amount of forgettable and useless trap rap an absolute turnoff, but a lot of the pop songs that charted also had trap elements in their production. This lifeless slog, for example, is basically a vine star trying to be Chris Brown. 3/10 - DCfnaf

Laziest love song of 2018. - StarlightSpanks

9 No Brainer - DJ Khaled

This just sounds like generic mainstream pop song number one million, and the beat sounds similar to the beat in "Somebody" by Natalie La Rose (a song I liked). - allamassal

I'm The One 2.0 - StarlightSpanks

10 Sorry Not Sorry - Demi Lovato

It's still as obnoxious as hell but not as relevant as it was luckily. - StarlightSpanks

The Contenders

11 Melodien - Capital Bra

Capital Bra is a rapper, so this is technically a rap song. - venomouskillingmachine

12 Te Bote - Casper Magico

WOAH OH WOAH OH - ShrekTheGoat

Disgusting, both sonically and lyrically

13 Toy - Netta
