It's my type of trash.

♪ (industrial intro) ♪

- (FBE) So today, we are gonna be showing you the top 10

biggest songs from 2018, and we're gonna see

if you can correctly place them in order from one to 10.

- Okay! I'm usually pretty good at these.

I usually get at least a point. - Yes, I love these games.

- No, I can't do that. I just don't have

a really good sense of what's popular on today's radio.

- (FBE) This list was determined by looking at how many weeks

a song spent in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 list.

although new remixes released this year count.

Ties will be broken based on how high the song peaked

in the top 10. - Okay. I don't pay attention

to the Billboard top whatever, so I don't know anything.

Oh my god. - Ooh, is that Rashida Jones?

- I'm gonna give it a 10. - Number nine.

- I'm gonna put "Lucid Dreams" at eight,

but it's not gonna stay there.

- ♪ I need it right here ♪ - Ahh!

- ♪ 'Cause girls like you... ♪ - Maroon 5.

- This song has been played a million times,

but I still jam out to it. - ♪ Yeah, me too

What I want when I come through ♪ ♪ I need a girl like... ♪

- This was such a good video. This makes me so happy.

- It's so weird when you see really big artists collab,

'cause it's like you just don't see them as living in the same world.

You know what I mean? So, to see them come together

is kind of weird. It's a trip.

- Nine, 'cause that's the only spot I have left.

- Number three right now. - I guess that's number eight.

I'm gonna have to do some serious rearranging here,

because I messed up big time. - (FBE) So, now that you've watched

through all of these, we're gonna give you a chance

to make some changes. Let us know when you're locked.

And remember, you get two points for every answer

you get exactly correct and one point for every answer

you're only one off for. - Love that.

- I'm gonna keep "Girls Like You"

as number one. I feel like that was

just divinely timed. - "I Like It," eight.

"Lucid Dreams," nine. "Sicko Mode," 10.

- "In My Feelings," six.

"Sicko Mode," seven. I'm feeling pretty good,

but you never know with these kinds of things.

- (FBE) So, here's the actual order going from 10 to one.

- All right. - (FBE) Number 10 is

"In My Feelings" by Drake.

(buzzer) - Goddammit! Grrr.

- WHAT?! Wait! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!

I was so off. - I should've known.

It was kinda just a meme, and it was outplayed.

- (FBE) Number nine is "The Middle"... - Hey, let's go!

- (FBE) Zedd and Maren Morris. - (clicks tongue) Ah! I knew

that [bleep] was wack. Should've put it lower.

- One point. There we go, one off! - Are you serious?!

I've heard that song so much!

- (FBE) Number eight, though, is "Sicko Mode" by Travis Scott.

- Oh, I was off by ONE! - Oh, I got that one right.

- I did it! I got that one!

- (FBE) So, number seven is "Nice For What" by Drake.


The disrespect. I expected this to be higher.

- Got that one wrong, too. - I am so good at this!

- (FBE) Number six is "Better Now" by Post Malone.

(pop) - No, wait. Wait! I got one point,

'cause I have it as number seven.

- No! Dang it! I still get the one point, though,

'cause I put that as number five.

- I'm getting three in a row right now.

Oh! I'm mind blown! (kaboom!)

- (FBE) Number five and number four are actually tied at 21 weeks

in the top 10 and both peaked at number one.

So, if you have either at four or five,

you get two points. And if you have either

at three or six, you get one point.

- Okay. - (FBE) The two songs are "Psycho"

by Post Malone and "I Like It" by Cardi B.

- I got "I Like It" at number five.

- At least I got a point for "Like That."

I mean, that's kinda close. - "I Like It" as number four.

Let's go. (chuckles) I'm killing it right now.

- (FBE) Number three is "Lucid Dreams" by Juice WRLD.

- I had it at four. Let's go.

- Good job, Juice WRLD. I had no idea.

- Juice WRLD's not even that big of an artist

compared to the rest of these! That's so crazy.

- (FBE) So, number two is "Girls Like You" by Maroon 5.

- Oh, I got that way wrong. I had it at number 10.

- I had that as number eight. (laughs) I had no faith

in Maroon 5! - One off again.

So, at least we're getting-- This is the most points

I've ever gotten in a thing like this.

- (FBE) And finally, the number one spot

goes to "God's Plan" by Drake. - ♪ God's plan

Knew it! - Yay, two points. (laughs)

- Nice! I at least got that one. - Yes! I had faith in this.

This is God's plan right here guys

for me to actually get two points!

- (FBE) So finally, this list, compared to last year,

has a lot of repeated artists... - Of course.

- (FBE) ...with Drake, Post Malone, and Cardi B

taking up the majority of this list. - Yes.

- (FBE) So, would you say that those three artists

are the best representative music in 2018?

- Absolutely, yeah. Post Malone, Cardi B,

and Drake just stormed in and just destroyed everything.

They made great projects, so they deserve it.

- Drake always represents what's kind of big in pop culture.

Cardi B's been a huge power since last year,

and she's probably the most prominent female rapper right now.

Post Malone, everything he even touches turns to gold.

- They're kind of our A class right now.

And a lot of people are like, "Ah, music sucks right now,"

but these are really good songs.

I'm not ashamed to have this list right now.
