Hey! I created this game hoping we have fun and probably we will discover some music.

Here are the #1 songs in the Billboard genre charts. When a "Songs" chart doesn't exist I choose the Album Genre Chart #1 and then search for the first single or promotional single available. I tried to represent all genres available in Billboard, only leaving out Mexican music. But I added Japan and China cause I think some J-POP or K-POP would be fun to include.

4 groups will be presented, one every 36 hours, and you have to rank songs fav to least fav. Only one song per group will advance to the big final where 4 songs will battle to become the Best Genre of the week!

Hope you enjoy!

A much better group imo, probably as there are more songs I was not familiar with

1 Blues: Ride 'Em On Down - The Rolling Stones (amazing!)
2 Christian: What A Beautiful Name - Hillsong Worship (surprisingly touching... i am not religious but i feel so moved)
3 Adult Alternative: Human - Rag'n'Bone Man (strong!)
4 Classical & New Age: It's Gonna Be OK - The Piano Guys (cool!)
5 Japan: Over The Top - Hey! Say! Jump ( I find it hard to understand groups with... 10 members? The song is fun)
6 Soundtrack: I Don’t Wanna Live Forever - Zayn & Taylor Swift (his voice... :-? )
