Calvin Harris Tops Billboard Music’s List Of The Top 50 Songs of 2017 So Far

Calvin Harris has done it again. Coming just days after his hit ‘Slide' obtaining platinum status the superstar has recieved yet another recognition.

Calvin Tops the Top 50

We are half way through the year, and that means it is time for Billboard Musics Top 50 songs of the year so far. The list was filled with tracks from many genres including folk, rock, rap and of course electronic music. While Calvin topped the list, The Weeknd & Daft Punk, Clean Bandit, Zedd & Alessia Cara, and Kygo & Ellie Goulding also made appearances from the world of dance music. We are not surprised to see Calvin's mega hit ‘Slide' topping the list though.

The track features an incredible beat by Calvin which reminds us of his ‘Ready For The Weekend' era productions. Then Frank Ocean‘s gorgeous vocals and a strong verse from Offset really makes this track top of the line. You can listen to it below, and read what Billboard had to say about the track as well. You can read the full list here.

“Every once in a while, a song will come along that is so perfectly irresistible that it demands to be played repeatedly, on a loop, for an obnoxiously extended period of time; think Daft Punk and Pharrell's “Get Lucky” back in 2013, for instance. Since the moment of its release in February, “Slide” has been that type of song, combining effortlessly-cool vocals from Frank Ocean with an upbeat, Auto-Tuned interlude from Quavo and a witty verse from Offset that opens with the endlessly quotable, “Offset! / Good gracious / Starin' at my diamonds while I'm hoppin' out the spaceship.” And we haven't even talked about the beat yet — spliced together by Harris, this chameleonic groove fits into every type of setting or playlist, whether dropped during a laid-back weekend afternoon or at the height of a packed party. “Slide” manages to capture some of music's premier innovators at the height of their powers, and the result is the best song of the year so far. — D.R.”
