Pop music has always been popular anytime. Even some artists who did other genres, they crossed over pop music as some of them did this year. Here are the biggest pop songs for 2015.
Taylor Swift- Blank Space
After crossing over to pop music, this song from her full length pop album was one of the biggest pop songs this year. It even crossed 1 billion views on YouTube!
Ed Sheeran- Thinking Out Loud
I often hear this song wherever I am and I loved this before even becoming popular. The song was multi-platinum elsewhere and even dubbed as “national anthem” by some people in our country.
Maroon 5- Sugar
I love the 70s funk vibe in this song. Adam’s vocals even fitted. This sone went to top ten worldwide and even had hundreds of millions of views on YouTube.
Ellie Goulding- Love Me Like You Do
This pop song was very popular in sales and radio. It was even very successful in video charts and even non-Fifty Shades fans love this song.
One Direction- Drag Me Down
The first single and video of the UK lads without Zayn Malik is still a hit. It is a record-breaking in streaming and huge sales in initial week.
Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar- Bad Blood
Taylor invited Kendrick Lamr to do the rap plus a highly hyped music video could’ve helped the song’s success. How about the assumption that it is meant for Katy Perry? I think it does help as publicity.
Justin Bieber- What Do You Mean?
He’s one of the biggest artists during the last half of the year and this pop EDM song is a streaming record holder.
Rachel Platten- Fight Song
It’s empowering theme helped the song reached number 1 in some countries like UK, and a top ten position in US. Well, I think Taylor’s promotion does help too.
Charlie Puth ft. Meghan Trainor- Marvin Gaye
The song may haven’t broken the top 20 but it was a huge hit in other countries. The sensual song went to number 1 in a number of territories.
The biggest record released during the last quarter, this song effortlessly went to number just like her album “25” did. Congrats to you Adele!
