Most forced hits?

What songs do you think were forced to be hits when they were released because of hype, their name, or payola despite not being that good? I remember hearing those songs constantly 

 

Taylor Swift - Look What You Made Me Do

Ed Sheehan - Shape Of You

Lady Gaga - Born This Way

Katy Perry - Roar

From what I observed lately: Levitating no contest. 
I find it funny when people were bumping all threads when the YE chart was released. 
It is good and Dua is grinding non stop so I don’t mind.

All of the songs quoted being absolute bops :deadbanana4: ATRL is so annoying

 

OT: Anything released by Harry Styles, for example :rip: I have no idea how anyone can listen to that

Shake It Off

Blank Space 

 

 

sadly those are her only WW hits :cries:

And why is Blank Space still charting on global Spotify :lakitu:

 

 

The OP is tragic. Shape Of You being called a forced hit is the most insane, but really difficult question. 

Me!th was certainly written to be a hit, but idk. Hits are hits. A name can only get you so far

People naming songs that became hits from the get go. :dies:

 

Forced hits to me are usually those songs spammed on radio that struggled on every other metric.

forced = shoved down throats until it became a hit

forced =/= gained traction from the get go

Are you serious with Shape of You? That song was created to smash :deadbanana2: probably THEE perfect pop song. Idk why people are mentioning ME!, cardigan, willow.. those aren't even hits. 

 

Levitating was def forced onto the GP but people actually like it so.. :michael:. I'd say every #1 by BTS, and Bad Habits by Ed Sheeran.
