Ariana Grande's "Dangerous Woman" was one of the year's most popular songs. Plus, Lady Gaga returned to pop, and let's not forget the tour-de-force that was Lemonade. Simply put, our faves delivered the hits in spades. But which artist achieved the most success this year? That's a subjective term, of course—I mean, what is success? We'll leave the lofty analysis to the music scholars and stick to something more cut and dry: streams.

But even with so many established huge names taking up space on the marquee, what really made the last twelve months in pop special was how they also found room for the lesser-known little guys; a Desiigner for every Drake, a Kiiara for every Kanye. Soundtracking a period of seemingly limitless real-world disagreement and strife, these artists big and small provided us with rare moments of much-needed unity, ones we all would've actually wanted to freeze time on. Here are the pop songs that pulled us closer in Note: Songs were considered eligible for this list if they were either released in or peaked on the Hot during that time — unless they already appeared on our list.
