About a month ago I did the first, Thoughts of a Jeanius Top 5: Radio Songs, where I posted my top 5 songs currently played on the radio. Very soon I will start doing some artist specific Top 5′s, but right now I am back with my top 5 radio songs. Like I did before I get to the Top 5, let me shout out some songs that didn’t make the cut.
#5 Drake – “Marvin’s Room” (NR)
Anybody that know’s me know’s that I’m not really a Drake fan I think he’s over-hyped, just my opinion. I will go out on a limb though and say I think he will outsell Lil Wayne when their album’s drop, he has a lot more radio friendly singles than Wayne does which is usually a good indicator of album sales, and Wayne seems to be doing a lot of experimenting with his music. I will say that the singing and rapping make Drake a unique artist, and it shows in this track here.
#4 Afrojack ft. Eva Simons – “Take Over Control” (NR)
Afrojack, David Guetta’s protege, has been tearing up the radio airwaves producing Pitbull’s number one single, “Give Me Everything,” as well as Beyonce’s “Run The World,” has taken decided to step out on his own, and successfully does that with this single ft. Eva Simons.
#3 One Republic – “Good Life” (NR)
I’m sure four years ago when “Apologize,” was released off of Timbaland’s Shock Value album that One Republic would just kind of fade off into obscurity, but they have done pretty well for themselves. Since “Apologize,” they have had three other Top 20 singles, including this one, and two gold albums. I could see being one of those songs like “Hey Soul Sister,” which is going to be everywhere pretty soon.
#2 Jay Z & Kanye West – “Otis” (NR)
How can you go wrong with two of the biggest acts in hip hop. I love when artists go back and forth on a track, and I wish more artists did it. ”Photoshoot fresh looking like wealth, I’m about to call the paparazzi on myself,” my favorite line in this track .
#1 Miguel – “Sure Thing” (1)
The only song from the last Top 5 that made it over to this Top 5, and it still holds down the number one spot. This is still my favorite song on the radio, every time this song is on the radio I listen to it. This reminds me of old school R&B, when R&B music was relevant, which was a time when I loved R&B music. Must be why I like this song so much!
