Top Ten Tuesday: Miley Cyrus "Malibu"

This song rockets from 64->10 this week. It's an ok song, I suppose. It's certainly interesting to see where she is taking her sound. And image. The video feels like it was made in the 90's.

Enjoy!

Top Ten Tuesday: Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber "Despacito"

So a Justin Bieber feature takes a collaboration to #1 again this week (he's the first artist to ever have two new #1 songs in two consecutive weeks), but the really cool thing about this song being at #1 is that it's the first mostly Spanish language song to go to #1 since "Macarena" in 1996! That is insane.

The remix that features Bieber doesn't have a video (yet) but the non-remix with just Fonsi and Yankee does, so I'll post them both

Top Ten Tuesday: DJ Khaled featuring Justin Biever, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, and Lil Wayne

This very catchy song joins 27 previous songs that have debuted at #1 on the Hot 100. I'll put in the complete list below the video. I don't think it's any surprise that this collaboration was super popular. Bieber and Lil Wayne alone would have done wonders but you also have Quavo from the super popular Migos and also the amazing Chance the Rapper. So this is no surprise to me. The song probably wouldn't even have to be as good as it is to debut at the top, if I'm being honest.



And here's that full list!
