The year 2013 has already ended and we have bid our goodbyes to the past year and all the buzz created in the music scene—from Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance to Taylor Swift’s number in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. But if you’re thinking that 2013 has gone for good, some songs will prove you wrong. Here is the Top 20 in Billboard’s Top 100 in the first week of 2014.
20. Unconditionally – Katy Perry
From last week’s number 23, Katy Perry’s “Unconditionally” has climbed to 20. Looks like the Katy Cats really love her unconditionally.
19. Team – Lorde
Dropping one slot from last week’s number 18, “Team” is now at number 19. Looks like some people left the team.
18. White Walls – Macklemore and Ryan Lewis feat. ScHoolboy Q & Hollis
This is the song that changed places with “Team”, moving up from last week’s number 18 to 19.
17. Drunk in Love – Beyonce feat. Jay-Z
Dropping 5 slots, Queen B’s “Drunk in Love” is now pitched at 17. Apparently, people have decided to stay sober at the beginning of the year.
16. Sweater Weather – The Neighbourhood
The winter season is all about sweaters and The Neighbourhood knows this perfectly. “Sweater Weather” just went up from 17 to 16.
15. Hold On, We’re Going Home – Drake feat. Majid Jordan

Down two places, it seems like people still have no desire to be woken up.
9. Story of My Life – One Direction
The British boy group’s latest track attests to their charm, climbing from last week’s number 10. Getting off one world tour and jumping right back on another the lads will be playing giant arenas such as two nights at the Pasadena Rose Bowl where a total of 180,000 screaming fans will be packed into see them. One Direction Tickets for the Rose Bowl concerts are available now.

7. Let Her Go – Passenger
Staying strong at number 7 is Passenger’s “Let Her Go”—because the New Year is all about letting go.

One Republic is still a crowd favorite with their track remaining at number 3.
2. Timber – Pitbull feat. Ke$ha
Holding fast in Top 2 is “Timber”. We’ll see how strong this song can cling to its spot. (Or how it can potentially rank first.)
1. The Monster – Eminem feat. Rihanna
Starting the year right, still at the top spot is Eminem’s “The Monster”, from the practically legendary Eminem. Rumor Mill has it that Eminem will be playing a limited number of concerts in the United States and Europe in the end of 2014.
