So – 2015 is over. Despite how fast you think the year passed by, you can’t deny that the year definitely had some major moments in music.

Without further ado, we have came up with a list of what we think are the 20 biggest hits of 2015.

Quick Disclaimers: Notice that the list is of the biggest hits of 2015 and not the best songs of 2015. There were many songs that were considered, but, at the end of the day, only 20 were able to make it on the list. Also, the biggest hits of 2015 weren’t all released in 2015. There are several songs that were huge in 2015 but were released in 2014 or earlier years.
