35 Best Songs From 2019

In 2019, we got new songs from A-Listers, emerging stars, and old favorites. By 2020, the world had shut down in response to ‘you know what’, and the flow of new music slowed. Fortunately, 2019 left us with enough hits to keep us entertained. Here is some of the best songs from 2019.

“Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish

Song Year: 2019

In a year filled with young, emerging stars, none shined brighter than Billie Eilish. The precocious teenager stunned the pop world with the Billboard-topping hit “Bad Guy” from her debut studio album “When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”

The song features Eilish melodiously talking just a touch louder than a whisper in her now-signature sound. The song won the coveted double – Song of the Year and Record of the Year – at the 62nd Grammy Awards.

“Blinding Lights” by The Weekend

Song Year: 2019

The Weekend solidified his bonafide superstar status with “Blinding Lights” from his album “After Hours.” Arguably the best song from 2019, it topped the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks and stayed in constant radio and streaming rotation over the next two years.

Over a 1980s-reminiscent beat, The Weekend sings of his loneliness in Las Vegas as he pines for an ex-lover.

“Memories” by Maroon 5

Song Year: 2019

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine took a break from the public eye following his maligned performance at Super Bowl 53.

When he reemerged later in 2019 with “Memories,” from the album “Jordi,” he seemed to be striking a softer tone and image than the flamboyant, over-exposed rock star we were used to. “Memories” is one of those classic songs that make us want to grab a drink and sing along.

“Lose You To Love Me” by Selena Gomez

Song Year: 2019

Over a delicate piano and strings backing, pop star Selena Gomez unleashed the most powerful vocal performance of her career on “Lose You To Love Me,” the lead single from her album “Rare.” The pop ballad discusses her growth as a person as she recovered from a failed romantic relationship.

The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 – the first chart-topping hit of her career – and became one of the year’s best songs.

“The Box” by Roddy Rich

Song Year: 2019

Roddy Rich was yet another young rapper who became a household name in 2019 thanks to his groundbreaking hit “The Box.” The song introduced us to Rich’s unique lyrical delivery where he alternates between a rapid pace and a slowed-down, singing style of rap. “The Box” topped the Billboard Hot 100 and earned the young rapper Grammy Award nominations.

“Circles” by Post Malone

Song Year: 2019

Post Malone has the formula for making pop-friendly anthems, and it was on full display in his hit “Circles” from the album “Hollywood’s Bleeding.” A rapper who sings more than he raps, Malone has a knack for melody and catchy hooks. “Circles,” a song about failing to save a relationship, had a soft rock vibe that helped introduce Posty to a wider audience.

“Sucker” by the Jonas Brothers

Song Year: 2019

The Jonas Brothers reunited in 2019 after a hiatus and put out the best music of their careers. The adult brothers now had a mature sound with the same familiar penchant for pop anthems. Their welcome-back single was “Sucker,” an immediately-iconic hit that features the best of Nick Jonas’ falsetto skills and a hook so catchy it had us singing it all year long.

“Cool” by the Jonas Brothers

Song Year: 2019

Following the success of “Sucker,” the Jonas Brothers’ follow-up single was “Cool.” “Cool” has a slow, chill vibe that makes it tailor-made for a summer anthem. In the song, the brothers brag about how cool they feel, combing their hair like the Sheen brothers in the 1980s, and feeling like rap sensation Post Malone.

“Old Town Road Remix” by Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus

Song Year: 2019

By now, the story is well-known. Billboard kicked Lil Nas X off the Hot Country Songs chart because “Old Town Road” wasn't a true country song. For the remix, Lil Nas X recruited country legend Billy Ray Cyrus just to stick it to his critics. The remix went on to become one of the most successful songs of all time, topped the Billboard Hot 100, and won the duo a Grammy Award.

“Truth Hurts” by Lizzo

Song Year: 2019

2019 will forever be the year that Lizzo emerged from left field and took over pop music. Her song “Truth Hurts” introduced the world to the bombastic, confident, talented singer-rapper who had a style unlike anything the music industry had seen. “Truth Hurts” topped the Billboard Hot 100 and won Lizzo a Grammy Award.

“Adore You” by Harry Styles

Song Year: 2019

With the days of One Direction behind him, English heartthrob Harry Styles has forged an impressive solo career and somehow become more popular than he’s ever been. His song “Adore You,” from his second album “Fine Line,” has all the Harry charm as he attempts to woo a woman he is in love with. The song peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100.
