We’re gathering the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart, for the week ending December 2, 2017.
The hit list seems comfortable with offering one new song a week, because that’s what we have once more.
Number 5: Cardi B. “Bodak Yellow Money Moves”
Let’s start in fifth place, where Cardi B slides two slots with “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves).”
The 2018 Grammy nominations came out on November 28, and Cardi competes in two categories. “Bodak Yellow” is nominated for both Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance. The 60th annual Grammy Awards ceremony will take place on January 28.
Number 4: Imagine Dragons “Thunder”
Imagine Dragons gains a slot in fourth place with “Thunder.” The Las Vegas band may win its second Grammy Award: “Radioactive” took Best Rock Performance in 2014, and “Evolve” is currently nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album.
Beyond that, the band’s music also appears in many advertisements. The song “Believer” alone currently has more than 32 placements, ranging from Nintendo and Microsoft to Jeep vehicles.
Number 3: Lil Pump “Gucci Gang”
Lil Pump places himself right in the middle of our countdown, as “Gucci Gang” jumps from 12th to third place. Hailing from Miami, Florida, Lil Pump – real name Gazzy Garcia – began uploading songs to SoundCloud last year. After earning millions of streams, he became a leader in “Soundcloud Rap,” a genre which also includes Lil Uzi Vert and Lil Yachty. Lil Pump’s self-titled debut mixtape hit third place on the U.S. pop album chart in October.
Number 2: Camila Cabello Featuring Young Thug “Havana”
Camila Cabello and Young Thug remain stuck in second place with “Havana.” However, it’s a different story on the Billboard Pop Songs chart, where it jumps to number one.
This is Camila’s second Pop Songs victory, following her collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly, “Bad Things.”
Number 1: Post Malone Featuring 21 Savage “Rockstar”
Up at number one, as you may have guessed, Post Malone and 21 Savage log a sixth straight week at the top with “Rockstar.”
Speaking recently with Polish media, Post said words to the effect that whenever you want to feel something, don’t listen to hip-hop. Post later said he meant no disrespect to hip-hop, which he loves…he just meant to say that when he needs to reflect on life, Bob Dylan is his go-to artist.
