Here is a list of the Top 5 Songs for the Month of August on Future Hit Songs Review.
Coming in a number 5 is the much anticipated single from Taylor Swift, but does it live up to its hype? Sounding a bit like a remake of a Meghan Trainor’s hit, “Look What You Made Me Do,” stands out not because of its beat, but because of this dark lyric that says, “The old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now. Why? Because she’s dead.” Yes, folks, just in time for Halloween, Taylor Swift “Look What You Made Me Do,” may not be in the same category as Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” but it graces the Top Five.

Calvin Harris recruits a mega team of talent that includes Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, and Big Sean for his number 4 hit “Feels.” “Feels” gives us a smooth feeling of 80’s Funk meet Pop while chilling in the park. With great harmonies and an easy soothing beat, “Feels” feels its way into the Top Five.

P!nk gives an emotional plea in “What About Us.” Not since Cher burst onto the charts with “Believe,” has a song created the social impact that “What About Us” stirs. We’ve seen a lot of troubling events in the month of August from the march of White Supremacists to wrath of Hurricane Harvey and some how P!nk is bringing a calming emotion in “What About Us.” With a catchy rhythm she dances her way up the Top 5.

Just when you thought R&B was on the down low here comes a beautiful soulful classic in “Until The Pain Is Gone” with British singer Daley featuring Jill Scott. Not since the Weeknd “Earned It,” have we heard a ballad that so easily seals its place in the R&B spotlight. Daley has impeccable vocals in “Until The Pain Is Gone,” and the melody is so sensationally captivating that this song deserves to go all the way to the top. It sits at Number 2 on the Top Five.

If there is a song that sends chills through every fiber of the body it has to be the current Number 1 song by Logic. Beautiful arranged with a soft violin entry, Logic takes Rap to an innovative high with a message that so powerful that it saves lives. It should be mandatory for every youngster to listen to the lyrics of this cleverly written song. I can’t imagine a better song fitted to be the Number 1 song for August. The Number 1 song for August is a hit of tsunami proportions, Logic 1-800-273-8255.
