Song of the year: 'Shape of You' or 'Rockstar'?
It's the end of the year! And we're facing-off the best songs, albums, movies, TV shows, video games, sports, pro athletes and entertainers of 2017. The "Best of 2017" is chosen by a combination of popularity, impact, acclaim, rankings and/or amount sold. But ultimately, we want you to let us know who and what from 2017 won the year in each category.
2017 has been filled with many great songs from today's biggest pop stars and hip-hop artists—but perhaps four epic songs stood above the rest. We are facing off some of top smashes released in 2017. In our first round, "Shape of You" crushed "Despacito" and "Rockstar" topped "Bodak Yellow." Which will win the coveted title of "Song of the Year" in our final round?
And don't forget to cast your vote for these other end of year debates:
Ed kicked off 2017 with a mega pop hit "Shape of You." And the song won't die—it remains in the top 40 on the Hot 100 and it's the most streamed hit in the U.K. "Shape of You" topped the Billboard Hot 100 for several weeks in the Spring, and it's top Hot 100 song of the year.
Below are some significant lyrics to "Shape of You," per Genius.
🎶I'm in love with the shape of you. We push and pull like a magnet do. Although my heart is falling too. I'm in love with your body.🎶
Post Malone's "Rockstar" featuring 21 Savage has been the top song of the as of late. The trap smash topped the Hot 100 for several weeks—before being replaced at the top spot by another Sheeran song "Perfect" (a duet with Queen Bey). If this hit is any indication, Post Malone will be partying like a rockstar on his upcoming effort "Beerbongs & Bentleys."
Below are some significant, but explicit lyrics, per Genius.
🎶I've been fuckin' hoes and poppin' pillies. Man, I feel just like a rockstar (star, ayy, ayy). All my brothers got that gas. And they always be smokin' like a Rasta (-sta). Fuckin' with me, call up on a Uzi. And show up, name them the shottas (-tas). When my homies pull up on your block. They make that thing go grrra-ta-ta-ta (ta, pow, pow, pow, ayy, ayy).🎶
