Top Songs of 2017
This year was a fantastic year and it was a blur. Something I noticed with each year time goes by faster. I do appreciate every minute. Also with time I appreciated the new music that came out this year. I did notice that hip-hop songs became slower. Back in the 90s, the beats per minute were about 90 to 100 bpm but this year a lot of the hits were 65 to 75 bpms.
Feel it Still by Portugal the Man
It does have an old school feel and at times it is hard to tell if a man or woman is singing it. It is very catchy. Band is based from Alaska.
Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee
This song was always on. It crossed borders and made many folks dance to the Latin rhythm.
Humble By Kendrick Lamar
Kendrick Lamar can write bars and is a genius when it comes to writing meaningful lyrics. Throw in a dope hip-hop beat and you got a hit.
Bodak Yellow By Cardi B
Its great to see Female on the hip hop charts. She flows like a river on this song and its her break through hit that put her on the map.
Wild Thoughts by DJ Khaled ft Rihanna and Bryson Tiller
Santana’s Maria Maria was reincarnated into this 2017 hit. Brought to life by Rihannas catchy hook, made this a club favorite.
Mi Gente By J Balvin and Willy William
This song was made with Willy William beat from another William song Voodoo Song. There is a remix with Beyonce on the vocals that also was popular
Lemon By N.E.R.D ft Rihanna
NERD is reunited to produce this fresh dance hit. In the video, Rihanna shaves dancers hair off. Song is such a it I would do the same too.
