2019 was an explosive year for popular music. Lil Nas X made history, the Jonas Brothers came out of retirement, and Lizzo became a household name. But which songs shaped the last year of the decade? We explore ten hits.
10. Sam Smith Ft. Normani - Dancing With A Stranger Sam Smith and Normani gave pop stations a treat when they teamed up for "Dancing With a Stranger." Although neither artist released a full album in 2019, this hit held both fan bases over until their new projects dropped.
9. Jonas Brothers - Sucker It was a pleasant surprise at the beginning of the year when the Jonas Brothers announced they were coming out of retirement. "Sucker" was just the icing on the cake.
8. Ed Sheeran - I Don't Care Ed announced in 2019 that he would be taking a much needed break from making music and touring. Luckily, he blessed us with "I Don't Care" with Justin Bieber before he disappeared.
7. Ariana Grande - 7 Rings There were so many speculations and rumors when Ariana and Pete Davison split. With the release of "7 Rings," Ariana proved that she was living her best single life.
6. Taylor Swift - ME! Taylor finally gave fans a new album in 2019, and "Me" featuring Brandon Urie of Panic! At The Disco was the perfect way to kick off her epic year.
5. Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes - Senorita There's no denying that this song is a hit, but watching this couple blossom and watching their chemistry when they sang it live enhanced the tune even more.
4. Justin Bieber and Dan & Shay - 10,000 Hours Beliebers are anxiously waiting for new music from Justin, but this duet with Day & Shay was a way to keep them satisfied
3. Billie Eilish - Bad Guy Billie has been around a few years, but "Bad Guy" and her entire "WHEN WE FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?" album catapulted her 2019 and her career.
2. Lizzo - Truth Hurts Everywhere you turn, Lizzo is there. And with bangers like "Truth Hurts," it is easy to understand why she is a megastar and a household name.
1. Lil Nas X Ft. Billy Ray Cyrus When "Old Town Road" was first released, there was so much controversy over what genre it fit in. Country? Rap? Pop? Who knows. But what you do know are those catchy lyrics. "Old Town Road" broke records when it spent 17 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100.
