Top 10 Music Hits From Billboard

The top 10 music hits according to Billboard are the following:

10. Maggie Rogers – That’s Where I Am

Maggie Rogers is a maestro of genre-blending soundscapes who hasn’t released any new music in the past three years, despite receiving a master’s degree from Harvard Divinity School. In the lead single from her upcoming album Surrender, the heartbreak lament “That’s Where I Am,” Rogers offers a stuttering electronica intro, a full-energy rave-up, a cool acoustic guitar break, and aching vocals to support the philosophical and anthemic chorus: “Even boulders turn into sand/ Wherever you go, that’s where I am.”

9. Gunna & Future feat. Young Thug, “Pushin P”

Gunna’s shape-shifting “P” lingo (sometimes a reference to “keeping it player,” other times about “pushing paper”) helped “Pushin’ P,” the dizzying trap summit of Future, Young Thug, and Gunna, find enormous success. All three rappers buy into the P-word breakdown like they’re playing a game of Scattergories, and their combined bravado is simply too lofty not to inspire. However, acoustically, the track soars because to lines like “Pointers in the Patek and the piece, I’m pushin’ P.”

8. Yahritza y Su Esencia, “Soy el Unico”

Just a few months prior to its official release, “Soy El Unico” became Yahritza y Su Esencia’s first single on TikTok. Yahritza wrote “Soy El Unico” at the age of 13 after seeing a real-life event her brother Mando experienced. The song debuted at No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs and reached No. 20 on the Hot 100, making the teen up-and-coming musician the youngest Latin performer ever to do so.

7. Rosalía, “Saoko”

The Spanish musician keeps listeners on the edge of their seats as she energetically raps about perpetual evolution. The song’s hypnotic bass beat, earworm hook, and surprising jazz piano break all pay homage to Wisin and Daddy Yankee’s 2004 smash “Saoco.”

6. Latto, ‘Big Energy’

The song samples the 1981 pop-funk anthem “Genius of Love” by Tom Tom Club, and Mariah Carey, whose 1995 hit song “Fantasy” also sampled “Genius,” gave Latto’s breakthrough hit an extra boost by appearing on its official remix alongside DJ Khaled. The song uses the Gen-Z/Twitter expression “huge d-k energy,” which, according to Latto’s statement to Billboard last autumn, may be possessed by people of all genders.

5. Karol G, “Provenza”

With “Provenza,” Carol G proves that she is at the point in her career where she can do no wrong. She expertly switches from tried-and-true reggaetón and empowerment themes to deliver a different kind of female song. “Provenza” sounds like an impressionist painting: wistful and delicate, even kind, yet with an undertone of strength. It is set over a flowing calypso beat (thanks to producer Ovy on the Drums, who knows this singer like no one else).

4.Kendrick Lamar, “N95”

He doesn’t waste any time following through on that warning as “N95” closes and takes its place. In his first line, he criticizes everything from “designed bulls-t” to “fake woke” attitudes before clattering in with a loud “B-tch! You look like f*ck! ” as thunderous as the music’s underlying hi-hats. It has all the sonic elements fans have been waiting for after five years between albums, including Kendrick Lamar’s trademark vocal variations that appear out of nowhere and production that enables him to pump his fist in the verses of a song as readily as he croons in the bridge.

3. Lizzo, “About Damn Time”

In “About Damn Time,” Lizzo is at her most adoringly self-centered. As the first single off her next album Special, which is due out on July 15, the song is ready to “bring out the fab-u-lous” (or is it “fat b—ch lust”?). It demonstrates that the new Lizzo is as fun, flirty, and brilliant as we’ve ever seen her — in fact, she “may be better.”

2. Doja Cat, “Woman”

The little Doja Cat song “Woman” lingered in the lower reaches of the Hot 100 for what seemed like an eternity before its seductive Afrobeats shuffle, mind-worming hook, and clever and casually anthemic rap verses (“They want to pit us against each other when we succeedin’, for no reasons/ They want to see us end up like we Regina on Mean Girls”) wore down any remaining radio resistance.

1. Harry Styles, “As It Was”

“You know it’s not the same as it was” is a pretty apt sentiment for the past two or more years, but Harry Styles seems to be telling a much more personal story in the effervescent lead single from his Harry’s House LP than just how the world turned upside down for absolutely everyone during the global pandemic. In fact, the song is so specific to Styles that it opens with a tender goodnight message from his goddaughter and even uses his name in the verses.
