US Top 40 Songs October 12

US Top 40 Songs – Billboard Top 100 October 12, 2019

Welcome to the review of the Billboard Hot 100, October 12, 2019. This segment looks at the top 40 songs charting in the United States of America.

Only a couple of changes in the top 40 charts. Lizzo is still topping the chart which is alright with me. A couple more weeks and she’ll be the only female rap artist with the longest number-one single in the charts. The only new songs are ones by DaBaby because of his new album. There is also some Marshmello and some trash rap song which I’ll get into in a few.

The rules are simple, I give my opinions about every song in the top 40 and giving a score from 1 to 10. If the song sticks around, I’ll only give it a score the next time I come across it. Remember, I do this segment every two weeks so keep an eye out for your calendars. Let’s begin.

#40 Post Malone featuring Ozzy Ozbourne & Travis Scott – Take What You Want: 7/10

#39 Blanco Brown – The Git Up: 4/10

#38 Marshmello & Kane Brown – One Thing Right: This experimenting with country music was all fun and games when Lil Nas X did it with Old Town Road. Then Blanco Brown decided to release that awful song. Now, I can’t stand any country music crossover. The same applies to Marshmello’s new song. It just sounds out of place now. Probably the weakest song I’ve heard from Marshmello so far. 5/10

#37 Young Thug featuring Gunna – Hot: 7/10

#36 Ariana Grande & Social House – Boyfriend: 8/10

#35 Post Malone – Wow: 6.5/10

#34 YNW Melly & 9lokknine – 223’s: Yeah, I want six minutes of my life back. Why six? Because I listened to the song twice. Goodness me, what is this? You have mediocre rapping coupled with auto-tune singing on a wack beat. How did this song even get to the top 40? 4/10

#33 Halsey – Without Me: 9/10

#32 Saweetie – My Type: 7.8/10

#31 Sam Smith & Normani – Dancing with a Stranger: 9/10

#30 Lizzo – Good as Hell: Last week, I talked about how we’re sleeping on artists like Lizzo and SHAED who released work months or years ago and are getting recognition today. Lizzo must be worst victim because Good as Hell was released in 2016 and it is charting in 2019. We are the biggest clowns of all time. Good as Hell encourages women to focus on themselves after being in a toxic relationship. This song is great. Again, why did we sleep on her? She deserves all the recognition right now. What an artist. 9.5/10

#29 Maroon 5 – Memories: Meh. That is all I can say about this slow song. I don’t like how nauseating Adam Levine’s voice sounds in this song. The chorus is cheeky and I don’t see myself listening to this song again. 6/10

#28 DaBaby feat Lil Baby & Moneybagg Yo – TOES: This is one of the DaBaby songs charting in the Billboard Hot 100. I don’t want to repeat myself here because I talked about the songs in the album review and Top 40 songs Kenya review. What I’ll do is drop the links to those posts. For the lazy ones, the TLDR is that the song gets that 6/10.

#27 Taylor Swift – You Need to Calm Down: 7.5/10

#26 Lil Baby & DaBaby – Baby: 7/10

#25 Megan Thee Stallion feat Ty Dolla $ign and Nicki Minaj – Hot Girl Summer: 8/10

#24 Sam Smith – How Do You Sleep?: 9.2/10

#23 Wale featuring Jeremih – On Chill: 8/10

#22 Jonas Brothers – Only Human: 8/10

#21 DaBaby – VIBEZ: Bragging about this and that and some WTF lyrics. Seriously, who does this?

Some more came in, say they want it too

I tagged in my brother, bitch, I’m out (Bye), I know

Not cool. 7/10

#20 DaBaby – Suge: 6/10

#19 DaBaby – BOP: Some more bragging. At least the beats were great. Isn’t that what he is aiming for? For us to enjoy the beats and ignore the lyrics? 7/10

#18 SHAED – Trampoline: 8.5/10

#17 Drake featuring Rick Ross – Money in the Grave: 7/10

#16 Jonas Brothers – Sucker: 7.5/10

#15 Post Malone & Swae Lee – Sunflower: 8.5/10

#14 Ed Sheeran feat Khalid – Beautiful People: 9/10

#13 DaBaby – INTRO: The best song on the album is the highest-charting single here and that’s fine with me. He talks about his uprising in the rap industry, how his father and grandmother passed away and how he is grateful. Great way to introduce your album but the album goes the opposite direction after this song. You should only listen to this song and forget the rest. 9/10

#12 Khalid – Talk: 9/10

#11 Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber – I Don’t Care: 5/10

#10 Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus – Old Town Road (Remix): 9/10

#9 Post Malone featuring Young Thug – Goodbyes: 7/10

#8 Lil Nas X – Panini: 8/10

#7 Post Malone – Circles: 7/10

#6 Billie Eilish – Bad Guy: 9/10

#5 Chris Brown featuring Drake – No Guidance: 8/10

#4 Lil Tecca – Ran$om: 6/10

#3 Lewis Capaldi – Someone You Loved: 9/10

#2 Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello – Senorita: 7/10

#1 Lizzo – Truth Hurts: 9.4/10
