In a feed full of Spotify Wrapped, Apple Music also has their own take with their best songs that defined 2020.

Some of the artists and songs in this specially-curated lineup are as follows:

The 100 Best Songs of 2020

Watermelon Sugar by Harry Styles

Wasn’t satisfied with this year’s summer season? Listening to this track (or watching it) will make you high especially with Harry’s refreshing vocals together with the vintage-like VHS aesthetics that go well with the vibe of the song.

Say So by Doja Cat

It may be one among the songs that went viral because of TikTok challenges, but Doja Cat has got all it takes to claim a spot in the Best 100 for its refreshing song paired with glitz and retro.

WAP by Cardi B feat. Megan Thee Stallion


A song in the hit list that got all the eyes and ears for its suggestiveness. Just a reminder to protect your eyes from all the 3.6 Billion TikTok #WAPChallenges out there.

Lovesick Girls by BLACKPINK

BLACKPINK continues to dominate the international music scene with their latest comeback track that’s more intimate and heartbreaking compared to their previous loud-pop releases. BLACKPINK surely is the revolution because they’re the only Korean act in this year-end lineup.

Know Your Worth by Khalid, Disclosure

If you’re up for some chill vibe, Khalid’s track released last March is something you would want to play whenever your enjoying a company with yourself, or a loved one. It would even be more enjoyable while driving around.

mirrorball by Taylor Swift

One of the most played tracks from Taylor Swift’s folklore album. This track is perfect to cherish the whimsical winter season of 2020.

Therefore I Am by Billie Eilish

Running around several stores inside Target all by yourself surely is an adventure and listening to Billie’s latest single surely felt like one, too.

Intentions by Justin Bieber feat. Quavo

If you’re tired of hearing Yummy, listening to Justin Bieber’s Intentions will make you feel empowered — especially if you’re a woman who’s struggling a lot now.

positions by Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande’s latest track may not be as hyped up as thank u, next and no tears left to cry but we all know she has a solid following for being at the top third spot. One thing is for sure, God is a woman.

Blinding Lights by The Weeknd

On the first spot is The Weeknd’s single that sure made the hit especially because of the overall interest in synth-wave and city pop.

You can listen to each and every song in this playlist below.

Singapore’s Top 100 Favorites

Just like Singapore’s diverse society, their Top 100 song playlist mostly consists of a Western, Mandarin, and Korean hits that weren’t really limited to this year’s releases.

Señorita by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello

This worldwide hit collaboration between Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello is still being played around Singapore — and we’re not surprised because its catchy tune and lyrics are timeless.

Psycho by Red Velvet

Although released by end of 2019, this is considered by many as one of 2020’s best K-Pop releases of all time. Red Velvet will truly make you Psycho-tic with this hypnotic and eargasmic comeback track. #PsychoSOTY

Memories by Maroon 5

Maroon 5 is one of the music pioneers in this age — and Memories is one among their many songs that hit once more. Its majestic rhythm paired with lyrics of inspiration has undoubtedly left a mark in a lot of Singaporean Apple Music users this year.

Shallow by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper

Singaporeans aren’t getting tired of listening to this two-year-old soundtrack from Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s film ‘A Star Is Born’ and it shows the superiority of the duo as they sing with their hearts’ content.

eight by IU feat. Suga

Another favorite from the GadgetMatch team is a collaboration between the popular Korean singer-songwriter-actress IU and BTS’ Suga. Every ballad might make you feel sad but listening to this single reminds us that there will always be rainbow at the end of the storm.

Graveyard by Halsey

A song so lit that it might even make the flames in your relationship burn further. Stop sleeping on Halsey’s music or else you might go straight into the graveyard.

Wannabe by ITZY

Listed also as one among the K-Pop songs for women empowerment, Wannabe is a strong title track by ITZY with powerful vocals and choreography that surely hit Singapore’s most-listened tracks of 2020.

What’s Wrong by Eric Chou

A truly heartwarming song by a popular Taiwanese singer that will surely make you feel you’re in love all over again.

Dynamite by BTS

There are honestly a lot of BTS songs in Singapore’s Top 100 list for 2020 but Dynamite has got to be one of their recent mostly-played K-Pop songs out there because it’s a jam you shouldn’t miss out.

Dance Monkey by Tones and I

On top of the list is this hit track by Tones and I that will surely make you dance all-day and all-night long once you pump it up to your loud speakers or earphones.
