As 2023 unfolded, it brought us a spectrum of musical experiences, from delightful singles to surprising comebacks. However, not every note struck the right chord. Here, we delve into the depths of disappointment with the nine worst songs that left us questioning the direction of the music industry.

1. BONGOS – Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s follow-up to “WAP” falls flat with the monotonous loop of “bong,” overshadowing their otherwise decent rhymes. “Bongos” lacks the spark that made its predecessor an instant classic, revealing a missed opportunity for both artists.

2. ALONE – Kim Petras, Nicki Minaj Kim Petras’ transition from the Grammy-winning “Unholy” to “Alone” disappoints, offering an uninspired sampling of Alice Deejay’s “Better Off Alone.” The addition of Nicki Minaj fails to elevate the track, leaving listeners yearning for Petras’ earlier musical heights.


3. BABY DON’T HURT ME – David Guetta, Anne-Marie, Coi Leray David Guetta’s “Baby Don’t Hurt Me” takes a nosedive by sampling Haddaway’s “What Is Love” without adding substance. The attempt to inject new life into a 90’s dance hit results in a lacklustre track with benign lyrics, showcasing a missed opportunity for creativity.

4. HANDS ON ME – Meghan Trainor, Jason Derulo Meghan Trainor and Jason Derulo’s collaboration on “Hands On Me” butcher Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me” into a forgettable rendition. The TikTok stars’ attempt at reinterpreting a classic fails to capture the emotional punch of the original, leaving listeners unimpressed.

5. WE DIDN’T START THE FIRE – Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy’s cover of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire” takes an unfortunate turn with non-chronological historical references. The attempt to update a novelty track from the late 1980s results in a confusing and insipid cover, leaving fans scratching their heads.

6. VULGAR – Sam Smith, Madonna Sam Smith and Madonna’s collaboration on “Vulgar” feels self-indulgent and out of sync with Smith’s style. Lacking soul and failing to showcase Smith’s vocal range, the track struggles to resonate with listeners, overshadowed by Madonna’s attempt to keep it entertaining.

7. MIND YOUR BUSINESS – will., Britney Spears will.’s “Mind Your Business” raises questions about its seriousness, as the track comes off as dumb even by the artist’s standards. The inclusion of Britney Spears does little to salvage the song, making it a head-scratching choice for radio stations.

8. K-POP – Travis Scott, Bad Bunny, The Weeknd “K-Pop” featuring Travis Scott, Bad Bunny, and The Weeknd fails to live up to the expectations set by its star-studded lineup. The underwhelming and pedestrian single lacks an enticing beat, leaving listeners wondering how three major artists produced such a lacklustre collaboration.

Regardless of the political intent, the song fails to impress musically, making it a questionable choice for chart-topping success.
