Some facts from Wikipedia / Billboard

Songs with repeated word THREE TIMES during the last 20 years

If there are songs with word repeated twice in a song, others are not contented and they repeated a word thrice. R&B group Destiny’s Child is one example who kept repeating a word in their song titles not once but thrice which included “Jumpin’, Jumpin'” (at the ‘word repeated 2x list) and two more songs included in this list.

Destiny’s Child- Bills, Bills, Bills
Formerly quartet at that time, Destiny’s Child asked their men to pay their bills not once but three times. This song became their first US chart-topper.

B2K- Bump, Bump, Bump
Likely became the Destiny’s Child counterpart being a R&B group and repeated a word three times in this sexual ‘bump’ song. It became a US #1 hit then.

Phillip Phillips- Gone Gone Gone
American Idol alumna Phillip Phillips (his name is also repeated but with ‘s’) attempted to do the trend with this folk/pop/rock song. It was a top 30 hit in the US and was even featured in “Amazing Spiderman 2” soundtrack.

NSYNC- Bye Bye Bye
It was effective for the boyband to repeat ‘bye’ three times as it helped their album became the fastest selling album ever im the US. The song itself filled a space in pop culture when it became successful globally.

Destiny’s Child- No, No, No
If Destiny’s Child carrier single repeated ‘bills’ three times, theur carrier single for their debut LP repeated ‘no’ three times and ‘yeah’ three times in its chorus. It became a top five hit in some countries worldwide.

Duffy- Well, Well, Well
The singer from Wales released this song intended to follow up her highly successful “Rockferry” but her effort to duplicate its success turned out to be the opposite. ‘Well’, it didn’t do ‘well’.

Paramore- Crushcrushcrush
The rock band released this quite cheesy song but successfully ‘crushed’ certain charts. Perhaps the repeated word ‘crush’ and making it into one word worked.
