The Billboard Hot 100 is the music industry standard when it comes to what’s popping in America. Every Tuesday, the chart is updated to reflect the newest numbers. One look through an Arrowhead study hall and there’ll be plenty of ears plugged, tuning in to the new and exciting music.

As of October 17th, “Rockstar” by Post Malone featuring 21 Savage is currently number one.

“That song is really great. I love playing it in my car, because the bass is crazy,” said Arrowhead senior Aristotle Maxwell.

Another senior, Jordan Liempeck, said, “21 Savage kills it. He’s definitely my favorite rapper right now.”

The number two spot is held by Cardi B and her song “Bodak Yellow.” It was remixed by Kodak Black on September 18th, who was the inspiration for the original track.

“Amazing in my opinion, bass-heavy and obnoxious just how I like it,” said Arrowhead senior Joe Fiducci.

“[It’s the] only song I know by her, but it’s actually pretty good,” said Arrowhead senior Beau Vander Heyden.

The number three spot is held by Logic and his song “1-800-273-8255” featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid. The title is the phone number to the national suicide prevention hotline and the song itself deals with topics of depression and loneliness.

Another Arrowhead senior, Salvatore Ciardo said, “This song is pretty weak but Logic makes it bearable.”

Coming in at number four is “Look What You Made Me Do” by Taylor Swift.

“Not my favorite genre per say but it’s not bad,” said Arrowhead Junior Jordan Bashaw.

“She has way better songs,” said Arrowhead senior Brooke Peddie

The number five spot is held by “Feel It Still” by Portugal. The Man.

“Has an interesting rhythm,” said Arrowhead senior Zach Kocher.

At number six, “Mi Gente” by J Balvin & Willy William featuring Beyoncé.

“I like Beyoncé’s part, but that’s about it,” said Arrowhead junior Mercedez Mueller.

“Too Good At Goodbyes” by Sam Smith is number seven.

“I’m not sure how I feel about this one, it’s weak too,” said Ciardo.

Coming in at number eight is “Thunder” by Imagine Dragons.

“[That song is] cool song actually,” said Jordan Liempeck.

The number nine spot is held by Demi Lovato and her song, “Sorry Not Sorry.”

“I like Demi and this song is pretty good,” said Bashaw.

“Agreed, really catchy,” said Peddie.

Lastly, “Unforgettable” by French Montana and featuring Swae Lee rounds out the list at number ten.

“This track gives me vibes for days,” said Arrowhead senior Aidan Kunz.
