#1 Song This Week One Year Ago: The Chainsmokers/Daya - Don't Let Me Down
Biggest DRRRRRRROP!!! Of The Week: Calvin Harris/Pharrell/Katy Perry - Feels (-18)
Biggest Jump Of The Week: Cheat Codes/Demi Lovato - No Promises (+18)
- We'll go from worst to best. Portugal. The Man actually lives in Alaska and not in Portugal. But Feel It Still is really good. I used to dislike it at first but it's getting better. I'm probably going to get sick of it soon.
- Halsey - Bad At Love is a lot better than Now Or Never. The song is really catchy and must last very long. Probably at least as long as Now Or Never. This is another potential song that I may get sick of though. Halsey is such a good singer, just one of her songs wasn't that good.
- Harry Styles produced the horrible Sign Of The Times that left 3 weeks ago. Two Ghosts is a lot better and Harry gone better solo. Since Sign Of The Times flopped, this song probably is going to flop too. My favorite One Direction member solo will probably always be Niall Horan. Harry is so far the worst.
- I don't know what's with all the hate with Maroon 5/SZA - What Lovers Do. This song is very catchy and bound to stay with us. It'll probably last very long because it's a Maroon 5 song. All of Maroon 5's singles from Moves Like Jagger to Maps were #1. Don't Wanna Know also reached #1 a few times. Sugar did too and this should hit #1 soon.
- Andy Grammer - Give Love is really good. I've never disliked an Andy Grammer song except for when I got sick of various songs by him. I love this one for now. Back Home will probably be his best work even though it didn't make the countdown. I wonder how long this song will last.
- The best debut is Justin Bieber/BloodPop - Friends. I love Justin Bieber and he is talented. I do get sick of some of his songs though. This one better sick with us for a while. This song better not flop on like what happened to many other good songs this year.
- The Revivalists - Wish I Knew You (RE ENTRY)
- Taylor Swift - ...Ready For It? (DEBUT)
- PRETTYMUCH - Would You Mind
- Why Don't We - Something Different (DEBUT)
- The All-American Rejects - Sweat
- Kelly Clarkson - Love So Soft (DEBUT)
- Sam Smith - Too Good At Goodbyes (DEBUT)
- Sabrina Carpenter - Why

- Hailee Steinfeld & Alesso/Florida Georgia Line - Let Me Go (DEBUT)
- The Script - Rain (DEBUT)
- Selena Gomez - Fetish
- Evaride - Heartless
- Zedd/Liam Payne - Get Low
- Rita Ora - Your Song leaving HitBound is not okay, The All-American Rejects - Sweat should've left instead.
- We have the most HitBound debuts since 09/17/16.
- I don't know how The Chainsmokers/Halsey - Closer survived a 6 exit week.
- Hailee Steinfeld - Most Girls should not be dropping, please let this song make a comeback jump.
- I hated all the exits this week instead of Selena Gomez - Bad Liar but it was old.
- I'm happy about the number 1, I can not get sick of Shawn Mendes - There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back.
- Both the Biggest Jump and Biggest Drop definitely deserved it.
- Ed Sheeran - Galway Girl is definitely welcomed to the top 20.
- I bet this is The Chainsmokers/Coldplay - Something Just Like This' final week in the top 5.
- All the songs that left this week were the only songs have 0-1 spins between September 6-8.
- Comparing this to this week last year, there's a huge difference in the amount of exits as last year had none while this year, we have a lot.
- Speaking of last years' exit, we've only had 1 5+ exit week while this year, we've had 4 which means that Hits 1 is doing a lot better.
- Finally, Luis Fonsi/Justin Bieber/Daddy Yankee - Despacito made a rebound.
- Ed Sheeran - Castle On The Hill is definitely not rewelcomed to the top 10.
