"Black Beatles" reigns as Billboard Hot 100's current #1 and is fresh in people's minds (and playlists). The song also features acclaimed rapper Gucci Mane. Although it was not the top Billboard song of the year, Billboard's music critics still named "Black Beatles" the best pop song of 2016.


"Panda" not only knocked Rihanna's "Work" off the top of the Billboard Hot 100 back in the spring, but the song has gone on to become the 6th biggest hit of 2016. Pretty darn impressive for Desiigner's debut hit single.
