PopCrush is rounding up the Top 40 Pop Songs for the month of December to let you know what’s hot this winter! Our list is based off of what we think is going to be taking over the charts in December. We ranked the songs based on what’s trending, reader favorites, and overall listener reception.

No strangers to our Top 40 list this month are Maroon 5 and Psy, who have been battling out for the No. 1 spot for the last few months. Although they both still remain in our Top 5, they were no match for Kesha, who's single 'Die Young' jumped from No. 5 to No.1 on our countdown.

We also saw a huge increase in new debuts from some of our favorite pop artists. Pink's 'Try,' Kelly Clarkson's 'Catch My Breath' and Justin Bieber's 'Beauty and a Beat' feat. Nicki Minaj are just a few of the tracks debuting on our list and in our Top 20!

Other new additions include The Script's 'Hall of Fame' featuring will.i.am, Pitbull's 'Don't Stop the Party' featuring JLR, and will.i.am's 'Scream and Shout' featuring Britney Spears. Check out the rest of our Top 40 Pop Songs List for December 2012 to see if your favorite song made the cut.
