The 5 worst songs of 2021: from Kanye to Coldplay


From Kanye West to Coldplay, here are five songs we’re happy to leave behind in 2021.

1. Kanye West with Syleena Johnson, “Donda Chant”

Yeezy finally presented his long-awaited 10th studio album, “Donda,” with 52 seconds of Johnson chanting his beloved late mother’s name 60 times. Even though Ye’s heart was in the right place, this song probably made Mum turn in her grave. And if “Donda” was meant to regain West some of the goodwill he had lost with longtime fans, that was a bad way to start.

2. Florida Georgia Line with Nelly, “Lil Bit”

This most unlikely combo achieved major success with its remix “Cruise” in 2013. And it was bad enough that this song was responsible for much of the sister country that followed. But for FGL and the “Hot in Herre” rapper to return to the well – when the two are clearly past the prime of their careers – it smacks of more than a “Little Bit” of desperation.

3. Sia & David Guetta, “Float in space”

The singer-songwriter of “Chandelier” and the DJ / producer EDM have already collaborated on the titanic club banger that was “Titanium” of 2011. But this lukewarm twirler – on which Sia’s voice is launched at the helium at a level annoying and annoying to the ears – collapses more than it floats. But hey, at least it’s surely better than Sia’s much-maligned “Music” movie that spawned the song.

4. ABBA, “I still have faith in you”

ABBA fans who had been waiting decades for “Voyage”, the beloved Swedish band’s debut new studio album in 40 years, surely lost confidence when the album’s lackluster main track arrived as one of its. first singles. And it will forever be a mystery how in the world this landed a Grammy Record of the Year nomination.

5. Coldplay & Selena Gomez, “Let Someone Go”

Somehow, Coldplay’s “My Universe” collaboration with BTS actually worked, giving Chris Martin and the company their first No. 1 since 2008’s “Viva La Vida”. But that breaking ballad blah – call her the anti- “Yellow” – made Coldplay feel like they were having a hard time staying relevant by enlisting Gomez, of all people.
