Babylon TOP100 – 2017

2017 was a year of lots of ups and downs. We finally saw the defeat of ISIS, we could comfortably breathe again! With some much positive vibes in the air, we thought what better thing to do than hold a referendum for independence! That didn’t go too well, as Iraqi PM Haidar Abadi ordered the closer of our airports, leading to more crippling of our economy.

Abadi wouldn’t let up, so our team decided to use this year’s Babylon TOP100 as a way of standing up to him once and for all! Check out how the team did. This year, the big show featured Noor, Intern Rosie, DDe, Gabrielle Ranued, Zane, and Dilawi.

The year saw interesting things happen that lead to new phrases, such as ”Maqul Chiya!” Messi got married to his childhood sweetheart. Ronaldo got twins. Conor McGregor got his butt beat by Floyd Mayweather, but still cashed in millions of dollars. We also witnessed the end of Linkin Park, as lead singer Chester committed suicide. With the referendum high in the air, HellyLuv came out with ”Finally” to support the cause.

Latin music took over the word, with Despacito grabbing the number one spot. We saw some of our favorites coming back with amazing new albums including Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, and Future. This year saw the comeback of Hip Hop in mainstream music, with 3 songs in the top 10. An unexpected Armenian song (Mi Gna) was made popular by a snapchat from Kim Kardashian, and it pushed it inside the top 20.
