As this year ends, let’s recap the top songs of 2017 according to Billboard.

“That’s What I Like” by Bruno Mars
From “Just The Way You Are” to “That’s What I Like,” his upbeat catchy songs keep playing on repeat. Mars has had multiple hits throughout the years and this one proved to follow that trend.
“Despacito (Remix)” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Bieber
This song was originally made in all Spanish but Justin Bieber added his own flare and made a remix. Let’s be honest- it is one of the most popular songs because of Justin Bieber. If you have not already, I would check out the original because it is just as good.
“Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay
