Jeanius Thoughts:

Interesting list by Billboard, like I stated before I’m surprised that “All of the Lights” was forgotten. I also thought Adele was a lock for number one, but being the only artist to have two songs in the Top 10 as a featured artist they didn’t want to give her too much. Interesting to see Lil Wayne wasn’t in the Top 20 for any of his songs, pleasant surprise, the number one isn’t on my Top 10 I don’t hate it though. What do YOU think about the list? Hit the comments and let me know!
