Streaming World: Back To 2012

2012 TOP 60 HITS – 46 to 50

We reach the Top 50 of the year with a couple of newcomers. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis had their breakthrough year thanks to The Heist which included Same Love. Florida Georgia Line came under the spotlight in the US with one of the biggest country hits of the decade with Cruise.

Justin Bieber is younger than them all but he wasn’t a newcomer anymore by 2012. His album Boyfriend included the hits Beauty and a Beat plus the title track, both making the Top 50 of the year, no doubt helped by the later success of the Purpose era. Kanye manages a second entry too thanks to his Mercy.

It also reached the top 20 in her native Canada and Japan. Well, that’s about it. 🙂
