The top five songs on iTunes are most of the time the biggest songs out there at the moment. Here are the current five for the week of May 17 including Wiz Khalifa, Taylor Swift, Sawyer Fredericks and more.

1. Bad Blood (feat. Kendrick Lamar) by Taylor Swift
No surprise here after how well Swift's new music video was received. On Sunday, when the Bad Blood music video was premiered it was also the first time fans heard the new version of the song.

Lamar raps are in place of Swift's usual lyrics but could easily just have been a Kendrick Lamar song ft. Taylor on the chorus it flows so well.

The bass is accentuated to give the song that extra kick of badass that matches the music video.

2. Please (The Voice Performance) by Sawyer Fredericks
Fredericks's original song was performed on Monday night, following the debut on the show.

A country song with soft guitars and a gentle drum beat it the right amount of sadness.

Paired with Fredericks's vocals which go back and forth between silky and scratchy the song is really nice to listen and sing along to. Even just listening to this song you can tell why he won the season.

3. Kick the Dust Up by Luke Bryan
Turning a cornfield into a party, that's a good sentence for the song.

The country singer used a lot of pop elements in the background of the song, like the beat rising at the end of the chorus.

Plus the chorus is full of instructions and steady beat that can easily be turned into a party line dance.

4.See You Again (feat. Charlie Puth) by Wiz Khalifa
Another Billboard performance, though without Lindsey Stirling's violin. Also the song was pretty big before the Awards Show.

The song is Furious 7's tribute to Paul Walker, who was one of the franchise's main characters.

On it's own the song is a touching rap-ballad to that encapsulates the feeling of losing a friend so dear they're almost family wither through death or distance. Puth sounds like an angel during this chorus of high notes.

5. Honey, I'm Good. by Andy Grammer
The song that's dominated for the past few weeks is a mix of country and pop.

The verses and middle of the chorus are most heavily influenced by country and there's a solid drum beat throughout the song that you'll find your toe tapping along to.

Helps that the song is actually about not cheating on your significant other, even if it seems to be a bit of a struggle.
