It said this “is a mirror of that tentativeness and hopefulness—a mix of thrilling new hits that helped shake the world from its stasis alongside favorites we returned to when that jolt felt like too much.”

“What they all have in common, from hip-hop upstarts to a wave of Japanese artists striving in streaming to a K-pop juggernaut primed for planetary domination, is that they brought comfort and catharsis at a time when we all needed them most,” it added.

BTS’ “Dynamite,” released on Aug. 21, 2020, placed first followed by Olivia Rodrigo’s “driver license,” Ariana Grande’s “positions,” Pop Smoke’s “For The Night (feat. Lil Baby & DaBaby)” and The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights.”
