10. Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna This is What You Came For
Believe it or not, this was the most awaited song for the fans. However, the opening clip of half a minute was released 10 days before the official song. As a result, it broke the record for most-streamed new songs on Spotify. Calvin has recently launched an album but it was not as successful as this song was.
9. Lucas Graham’s 7 Years
Lucas Graham’s 7 Years got stuck up for 9 weeks on the Billboard list as the artist’s genre was very unique from all the top songs. We were able to see another emerging artist who won the Danish Act of the Year. 7 Years is still topping in top 20 and was definitely deserves a spot in the hottest song of the year.
8. Heathens by Twenty One Pilots
Suicide Squad movie might not have clinched what Heathens by Twenty One Pilots. However, It was a very mystical and hideous song as it topped the Billboard as soon it was launched. The artist released Ride and Stressed Out as well this year but Heathens were the main story of their success.
7. Closer – The Chainsmokers
This has to be one of the most popular songs of Chainsmokers which lead them so much success. They could not even imagine of.

Flo Rida is in this sports for a long time now. Therefore, this time he has come up with a modern pop and rock song which was released on 26th March and broke all his own previous records. It is his only song of the year so far. I guess he made enough breakthrough with his solo song this year.
