The song has been praised for its catchy beat and positive lyrics. “All About The Bass” promotes body acceptance for men and women of all shapes and sizes, causing the song to rise all the way from 84 to our number one song.

  • Sam Smith - “Stay With Me” British singer-songwriter Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” is his most successful single yet. Peaking at number 2 in the charts, the song exposed the heartache of Smith regarding his pleading to his significant other not to leave him.

  • Magic! - “Rude” Canadian reggae band Magic! puts their debut single “Rude” at this week’s number 3 in the countdown.

  • Jessie J ft. Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj - “Bang Bang” “Bang Bang” is a song recorded by singers Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and rapper Iggy Azalea. With the song’s “clap heavy” and “big bouncy beats and horn blasts” it went straight to the top ten, making it number 4 on this week’s charts.

  • Nico & Vinz - “Am I Wrong” Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz have risen to the top with “Am I Wrong” in over four countries. Only reaching number 5 in this week’s top ten, “Am I Wrong” has the most inspiring meaning from this list. "Inspiration is coming from a small country, but having huge dreams and people telling you,man, that's not realistic, come on, you can't be on the top of America or the top of the world or whatever we dream of,” says Vinz.

  • Sia - “Chandelier” Coming in at number 6 is “Chandelier” by Australian singer Sia. Featuring reggae, electronica, and R&B influences, this song’s lyrics focus on the alcoholism of a “party girl” with a melancholic theme. What stands out most about “Chandelier’ is its outstanding rise from 75, peaking at number 6 on U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

  • Ariana Grande ft. Zedd - “Break Free” Taking a break from her usual pop and R&B music, Ariana Grande explored EDM and electropop genres with her number 7 hit “Break Free”. Previously seeing “Problem” at number 9, “Break Free” is Grande’s fourth top ten hit.

  • Milky Chance - “Stolen Dance” “Stolen Dance”, a song by Milky Chance, was first uploaded to YouTube before completing their debut album. It became an immediate hit, racking up millions of views.

  • Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea - “Problem” Written by Iggy Azalea but recorded by Ariana Grande, “Problem” has made its way to number 9 in this week’s top ten. Receiving nothing but good reviews, the song is about “the feeling of being absolutely terrified to re-approach a relationship thats gone sour―but want more than anything” says Grande.

  • Maroon 5 - “Maps” Starting off at number ten is Maroon 5’s “Maps”. Since the release, the song is topping the eight biggest music charts in South Korea, making Maroon 5 the first artist to top several charts in Korea in music history.
