Which EDM artist has taken out Billboard's top tune of 2017? (so far)

music news 08/06/2017

Sorry about it Chainsmokers, Diplo, Drake, Lorde, even Kendrick...

The Scottish dance music icon, Calvin Harris, has come out as the top dog of 2017 (thus far), with his absolute banger 'Slide,' featuring Migos and Frank Ocean. 

Can't say we're suprised. It's been rating it's titties off on our MusicLab. You guys can't seem to get enough of it, and neither can we.

'Slide' is the kind of tune, no matter your mood, you'll feel a groove come over you everytime it's played. 

Here's what Billboard had to say about the single: 

"Every once in a while, a song will come along that is so perfectly irresistible that it demands to be played repeatedly, on a loop, for an obnoxiously extended period of time; think Daft Punk and Pharrell's "Get Lucky" back in 2013, for instance. Since the moment of its release in February, "Slide" has been that type of song, combining effortlessly-cool vocals from Frank Ocean with an upbeat, Auto-Tuned interlude from Quavo and a witty verse from Offset that opens with the endlessly quotable, "Offset! / Good gracious / Starin' at my diamonds while I'm hoppin' out the spaceship." And we haven't even talked about the beat yet -- spliced together by Harris, this chameleonic groove fits into every type of setting or playlist, whether dropped during a laid-back weekend afternoon or at the height of a packed party. "Slide" manages to capture some of music's premier innovators at the height of their powers, and the result is the best song of the year so far." -- D.R.

Our girl Lorde pulled a humble fourth placing, with 'Green Light' in Billboards top 50 tunes of 2017. Look at the full list here.
