100 FOLLOWERS SPECIAL: Reviewing All the Billboard Hot 100 Songs (in 10 words or less)

Hello, I’m MusiCommentator, and I’m glad to say that WE DID IT!  I FINALLY MADE IT TO 100 FOLLOWERS!  I know I’m being a bit over-dramatic, but I think every blogger on WordPress gets happy when they hit one hundred followers.  It’s a special achievement, I think, that should be cherished.  I started this blog just over a year ago, and I think it’s amazing how I was able to come all this way and gain a following.  I’ve never been very social media savvy, but having fans that read a lot of my posts really makes my writing seem worthwhile, and I thank you all for that.  Thank you all so, so much!

So, as a thank you to all of my loyal followers, I decided to make a special post.  I make it no secret that I get a lot of my ideas for song reviews from the Billboard Hot 100–which is a weekly culmination of the most streamed/bought songs.  Therefore, since this is my 100 follower special, I decided that I will review every one of those 100 songs in this post!  Now, if I were to do my normal style of song review for every single song on this chart, it would be longer than the average novel, and no one wants to read that, so I’m giving myself the challenge of reviewing every song in 10 words or less.  Yes, it will be hard, but it’s all for my loyal followers, and I’m so grateful for you all, so thank you.

Before I start, I will say to that I’ve already reviewed a few of these songs in the past, so I will make the song titles hyperlinks to my reviews.  So, if the title of a song is blue, you can click on it and get a fuller review (I will do the same if I talked about a song in an album review as well).  Now, let’s get into it, starting with song number 100!

#100: Welcome To The Party (by Diplo, French Montana, & Lil Pump, ft. Zhavia)
Good in the movie, but not in real life.

#99: Take Back Home Girl (by Chris Lane, ft. Tori Kelly)
How many clichés can we fit in a country song?

#98: Singles You Up (by Jordan Davis)
When you fuse r/NiceGuys with country music.

#97: Big Bank (by YG, ft. 2 Chainz, Big Sean, & Nicki Minaj)
Everyone did good besdies 2 Chainz.

#96: Drip (by Cardi B, ft. Migos)
Still mediocre, but it has grown on me a bit.

#95: Babe (by Sugarland, ft. Taylor Swift)
The best of the country songs on here so far.

#94: Sin Pijama (by Becky G & Natti Natasha)
There’s more Latin songs on this chart than I thought.

#93: Beautiful Crazy (by Luke Combs)
Nevermind, Sugarland, this is the best country one so far.

#92: Wouldn’t Leave (by Kanye West, ft. PARTYNEXTDOOR)
Kanye shows true vulnerability, and it turns out fantastically.

#91: El Farsante (by Ozuna & Romeo Santos)
It has a nice beat, but their voices are annoying.

#90: I Know You (by Lil Skies, ft. Yung Pinch)
I don’t know.  It’s not my thing, I guess.

#89: Life Goes On (by Lil Baby, ft. Gunna & Lil Uzi Vert)
It’s kind of basic.

#88: Rich Sex (by Nicki Minaj, ft. Lil Wayne)
Just saying the title of this song makes me uncomfortable.

#87: Sativa (by Jhene Aiko, ft. Swae Lee)
If anyone says R&B isn’t sexy anymore, they’re wrong.

#86: I Was Jack (You Were Diane) (by Jake Owen)
Hip-Hop and country don’t mix very well.

#85: Violent Crimes (by Kanye West)
Another moment of vulnerability from Kanye, and another great song!

#84: Lose It (by Kane Brown)
At least country’s progressive enough to have a black star.

#83: Me Niego (by Reik, ft. Ozuna & Wisin)
really don’t like Ozuna’s voice.

#82: Zombie (by Bad Wolves)
Not a big cover guy, but this cover is awesome!

#81: OTW (by Khalid, Ty Dolla $ign, & 6LACK)
Why haven’t I listened to this before?! It’s great!

#80: Dame Tu Cosita (by El Chombo, ft. Cutty Ranks)
Some memes deserves to die.

#79: Youngblood (by 5 Seconds Of Summer)
Expected this song to be a lot worse.  Not disappointed.

#78: lovely (by Billie Eilish & Khalid)
Much better than the show it’s on.

#77: Overdose (by YoungBoy Never Broke Again)
Straight to the point, but pretty enjoyable.

#76: I Lived It (by Blake Shelton)
A good retort to those who say country is repetitive.

#75: Powerglide (by Rae Sremmurd, ft. Juicy J)
Dang, we’re on a run of really good songs–

#74: Alone (by Halsey, ft. Big Sean & Stefflon Don)
–nevermind.

#73: KIDS SEE GHOSTS (by KIDS SEE GHOSTS)
It’s a weaker cut on the album, but still passable.

#72: Japan (by Famous Dex)
I don’t get the appeal to this guy.

#71: Fake Love (by BTS)
Don’t know what they’re saying, but it sounds really beautiful.

#70: Praise The Lord (Da Shine) (by A$AP Rocky, ft. Skepta)
Not Rocky’s best, but decent enough.

#69: Cudi Montage (by KIDS SEE GHOSTS)
A great perspective on the violence going on today.

#68: Esskeetit (by Lil Pump)
At least it’s not Gucci Gang.

#67: Fire (by KIDS SEE GHOSTS)
Probably one of the more forgettable tracks off the album.

#66: Everything’s Gonna Be Alright (by David Lee Murphy & Kenny Chesney)
Everything’s gonna be alright…except my ears.

#65: KOD (by J. Cole)
Pretty Good.

#64: Dura (by Daddy Yankee)
The “Despacito” star returns with a track a lot worse.

#63: Mercy (by Brett Young)
I can truly feel the emotion in his voice/lyrics.

#62: Freeee (Ghost Town, Pt. 2) (by KIDS SEE GHOSTS)
The original is almost always better than the sequel.

#61: You Make It Easy (by Jason Aldean)
It’s written by Florida Georgia Line?  No wonder it sucks.

#60: Ghost Town (by Kanye West, ft. PARTYNEXTDOOR)
Good in almost every aspect.

#59: Ball For Me (by Post Malone, ft. Nicki Minaj)
The only memorable part is the chorus, and it sucks.

#58: X (by Nicky Jam & J Balvin)
The “beat breakdown” in the chorus seems underwhelming.

#57: Simple (by Florida Georgia Line)
I thought we were done spelling things in song choruses.

#56: Sit Next To Me (by Foster The People)
“Pumped Up Kicks” is better.

#55: Done For Me (by Charlie Puth, ft. Kehlani)
Charlie Puth can actually make songs sound sexy now?

#54: Call Out My Name (by The Weeknd)
A powerhouse ballad of sultry sadness.

#53: Woman, Amen (by Dierks Bentley)
There’s, like, one good line on this song.  That’s it.

#52: Sad! (by XXXTentacion)
Not his best, but it’s incredibly catchy (also, R.I.P.).

#51: IDGAF (by Dua Lipa)
Clever, blunt lines mixed with good pop production.

#50: TATI (by 6ix9ine, ft. DJ SPINKING)
Knowing his legal situation, the sexual lines are very uncomfortable.

#49: Up Down (by Morgan Wallen, ft. Florida Georgia Line)
You ever tried not being total asses, Florida Gerogia Line?

#48: Get Along (by Kenny Chesney)
A terribly short-sighted attempt at being socially conscious.

#47: Feel The Love (by KIDS SEE GHOSTS)
One of the better cuts off the album, certainly.

#46: I Like Me Better (by Lauv)
It’s not bad, but it’s not that good, either.

#45: One Number Away (by Luke Combs)
The melodies on this are so captivating and enchanting.

#44: Pray For Me (by The Weeknd & Kendrick Lamar)
I’ve become less attached to this song over time.

#43: Chun-Li (by Nicki Minaj)
One of Nicki’s least inspired tracks.

#42: 4th Dimension (by KIDS SEE GHOSTS)
The beat is nice, but Kanye’s verse is pretty weak.

#41: All Girls Are The Same (by Juice WRLD)
Good lyrics, but I don’t like his voice.

#40: Yikes (by Kanye West)
Phenomenal chorus, questionable verses.

#39: Reborn (by KIDS SEE GHOSTS)
I guarantee you will get strong “College Dropout” vibes.

#38: Taste (by Tyga, ft. Offset)
Please, world, don’t make Tyga famous again.

#37: Freaky Friday (by Lil Dicky, ft. Chris Brown)
It’s inappropriate humor, but it’s funny.

#36: Te Bote (by, Casper Magico, Nio Garcia, Darell, Nicky Jam, Ozuna & Bad Bunny)
It’s seven minutes long!

#35: New Rules (by Dua Lipa)
A pop masterpiece that should not be forgotten!

#34: Love Lies (by Khalid & Normani)
It’s passable.

#33: Plug Walk (by Rich The Kid)
(Rich The Kid / Famous Dex): Spot The Difference.

#32: Tequila (by Dan + Shay)
Bro country at its worst.

#31: All Mine (by Kanye West)
It’s lyircal ridiculousness works in its favor.

#30: One Kiss (by Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa)
Another throwback-inspried gem in Calvin Harris’s discography.

#29: Wait (by Maroon 5)
The bass is the only good part about this song.

#28: I’m Upset (by Drake)
Pretty predictable for Drake.

#27: Havana (by Camila Cabello, ft. Young Thug)
Camila’s best song of her career so far.

#26: Heaven (by Kane Brown)
The chorus is good, the rest isn’t.

#25: Delicate (by Taylor Swift)
Remember when Taylor’s songwriting wasn’t so forward and pandering?

#24: Rockstar (by Post Malone, ft. 21 Savage)
It’s Post doing what he does best: good trap bangers.

#23: Be Careful (by Cardi B)
A departure from her usual style, and it pays off.

#22: Back To You (by Selena Gomez)
Booooooriiiiiiiing

#21: Whatever It Takes (by Imagine Dragons)
The chorus is good, the rest isn’t.

#20: Better Now (by Post Malone)
Decent.

#19: Never Be The Same (by Camila Cabello)
The chorus is good, the rest isn’t.

#18: Look Alive (by BlocBoy JB, ft. Drake)
What can I say, it’s grown on me.

#17: Perfect (by Ed Sheeran)
A perfect song!

#16: In My Blood (by Shawn Mendes)
A true glow up for Shawn Mendes…musically, that is.

#15: Mine (by Bazzi)
This song is still charting?

#14: Walk It Talk It (by Migos, ft. Drake)
It’s not bad for Migos.

#13: FRIENDS (by Marshmello & Anne-Marie)
It’s good sonically, but the concept it terrible.

#12: This Is America (by Childish Gambino)
Execution could have been better.

#11: Yes Indeed (by Lil Baby & Drake)
Drake phoned it in hard.

#10: Meant To Be (by Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line)
This song has been overplayed beyond death.

#9: No Tears Left To Cry (by Ariana Grande)
I love the refrain on this track.

#8: The Middle (by Zedd, Maren Morris, & Grey)
“Yeah, I love ‘Stay’!…Wait, this isn’t ‘Stay?'”

#7: Boo’d Up (by Ella Mai)
A passable R&B track.

#6: Lucid Dreams (by Juice WRLD)
(see: #41)

#5: Girls Like You (by Maroon 5, ft. Cardi B)
Not a bad song.  You win this one, Levine.

#4: God’s Plan (by Drake)
An amalgamation of all of Drake’s worst clichés.

#3: I Like It (by Cardi B, ft. Bad Bunny & J Balvin)
Beat is awesome, Cardi is awesome, featured guests aren’t awesome.

#2: Psycho (by Post Malone, ft. Ty Dolla $ign)
Not as good as “Rockstar”, but easily a good banger.

#1: Nice For What (by Drake)
He handles the topic surprisingly well.  Good job, Drake.

  1. Not being a huge fan of hip hop (though I like some) nor Country, most of these songs just don’t appeal to me. I do really like “This is America” and “Whatever it Takes” though, as well as “Sit Next to Me,” as I’m a huge Foster the People fan. I also like “God’s Plan” even though it’s boring as hell, and Shawn Mendes is growing on me (I hated his vocals when he first broke onto the music scene). I cannot stand Cardi B’s voice, which is like nails on a chalkboard to my ears.

    1. Yes, there’s definitely a lot of artists discussed on this chart. It’s nice to see that there is still a certain diversity in music. I definitely understand where most of your points come from, though. I guess we’ll see if more appealing stuff hits the charts in the future
