Max Gebhard, Reporter is a website that compiles a list of 100 of the most popular songs and updates it every day. Unlike the Billboard, it takes user and editor input from the people that visit the website, making the songs less influenced by radio airplay.

“Pull Up N Wreck” by Big Sean & Metro Boomin featuring 21 Savage is in first place. The former previous collaborated on “Bounce Back” a hit off Sean’s last album. The song itself is fast-paced and haunting with Sean and Savage describing how they’ll simply call up someone to end your life.

“I didn’t expect it to be that hyper, very impressed,” said Arrowhead senior Brooke Peddie.

“I love the echo on the hook,” said Arrowhead junior Hunter Davis.

In the second spot is “Dat Side” by CyHi The Prynce featuring Kanye West. It’s an anthem addressing his haters, telling them to get out of the way: “All the haters hating, wait a minute, stand on dat side, I don’t need no allies, I don’t feel the need to fraternize.”

“The piano in the background is haunting,” said Peddie.

“First time listening to CyHi, but him and Kanye have good chemistry,” said Davis.

In the third spot is “Stand Up” by Fabolous & Jadakiss featuring Future. It is the promotional single they dropped before releasing their collaborative project that was set to be unleashed on Halloween but delayed until further notice.

“The build-up in the beginning is amazing,” said Peddie.

“Future absolutely killed it like always,” said Davis.

Nicki Minaj’s remix of “The Way Life Goes” by Lil Uzi Vert is in fourth place. Originally released on August 25th, the song was the fifth song on his album, Luv is Rage 2.

“Yes, Nicki is my favorite female rapper by far,” said Peddie.

“Original song is better honestly,” said Davis.

In the fifth spot is “Ghostface Killers” by Offset, 21 Savage, and Metro Boomin featuring Travis Scott. The title is a reference to the legendary Wu-Tang member, Ghostface Killah.

“Makes me feel like it’s still Halloween,” said Peddie.

“Travis Scott really impressed me,” said Davis.

In sixth place is “Motor Sport” by Migos featuring Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. It is the first single from the trap trio’s next album Culture 2 with the release date yet to be announced.

“Yes, this song is perfect,” said Arrowhead senior Zach Kocher.

“Every verse is good on it’s own plus Quavo on the hook is just yes,” said Arrowhead junior Mercedez Mueller.

The seventh spot is held by “Roll N Peace 2” by Kodak Black, a sequel to the third track off Project Baby 2, originally featuring fellow floridian rapper XXXTentaction.

“Too slow and I can’t comprehend him,” said Kocher.

“First one was far better, because of XXXTentaction,” said Mueller.

In eighth place is “Last All Night” by Chris Brown, an additional track that didn’t find it’s place on Heartbreak On A Full Moon, his most recent work released on October 31st.

“Sounds like every other Chris Brown song,” said Kocher.

“Makes me want to listen to the rest of his new album,” said Mueller.

In the ninth spot is “Afterparty” by Roy Woods featuring Lil Yachty and Swae Lee. Roy Woods is a canadian rapper signed to Drake’s OVO sound label.

“Roy and Swae have great chemistry,” said Kocher.

“I like how mysterious this track sounds,” said Mueller.

“Halloween” by Kodak Black rounds out the list at number ten.

“The story he tells is spooky,” said Kocher.

“Perfect timing with this track,” said Mueller.
