Top 20 Songs: Week of Aug. 20-26, 2012


This week, PopCrush’s Top 20 Songs list has some newcomers, while others continue to hold down their usual spots with a steadfast grip. For instance, ‘American Idol‘ champ Phillip Phillips is making his Top 20 debut with ‘Home’ this week, while Maroon 5 (who are also debuting with ‘One More Night’) continue to dominate the higher spots with ‘Payphone.’

Take a look at this week’s Top 20 Songs countdown and be sure to tune into PopCrush’s radio show this weekend to hear all of these songs plus the winning About to Pop tune (Chris Rene‘s ‘Trouble’).
