Celebrating the U.K. singer-songwriter’s biggest hits on the site.

Sam Smith has been riding high on the Genius Top Songs chart all month with “Unholy,” their writhing, clanging, choir-inflected collaboration with Kim Petras. The song page was racking up hundreds of thousands of pageviews even before the song’s official release, and that’s a testament to Smith’s enduring popularity. A full decade after they came on the scene by guesting on Disclosure’s 2012 dance smash “Latch,” Smith remains a top-tier pop star whose lyrics warrant close reading.

Arctic Monkeys – Body Paint

Arctic Monkeys – Body Paint

[Verse 1]
For a master of deception and subterfuge
You’ve made yourself quite the bed to lie in
Do your time travelling through the tanning booth
So you don’t let the sun catch you crying

[Chorus]
So predictable, I know what you’re thinking

[Verse 2]
My teeth are beating and my knees are weak
It’s as if there’s something up with the wiring
You can poke your head behind the mountain peak
Don’t have to mean that you’ve gone into hiding

[Chorus]
So predictable,

Gangsta’s Paradise

[Verse 1: Coolio]
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I take a look at my life and realize there’s nothin’ left
‘Cause I’ve been blastin’ and laughin’ so long, that
Even my momma thinks that my mind is gone
But I ain’t never crossed a man that didn’t deserve it
Me be treated like a punk, you know that’s unheard of
You better watch how you talkin’

Paramore This Is Why

Paramore This Is Why

[Verse 1]
If you have an opinion
Maybe you should shove it
Or maybe you could scream it
Might be best to keep it

[Pre-Chorus]
To yourself (To yourself)
To yourself (To yourself)

[Chorus]
This is why I don’t leave the house
You say the coast is clear
But you won’t catch me out
Oh,

ROSALÍA – BIZCOCHITO

I’m not nor will I ever be your babycakes
But I got everythin’ that’s criminal
Put me in the sun and watch me melt

Put me in the sun and watch me melt
I can cast off the evil eye sent my way

Song Of The Season The Track That Ruled Summer 2022

Song Of The Season The Track That Ruled Summer 2022

Find out what artist took home the crown, according to Genius pageviews.
This year was kind of an unusual summer for music. Boosted by the success of a Netflix series, an ‘80s throwback returned to rule the charts; Beyoncé, Drake, and even Megan Thee Stallion dipped into house music; and The Game waged war on Eminem with what has to be one of the longest (and maybe most unnecessary) diss tracks of all time.

It’s the follow-up to 2020’s ‘Calm.’

Aussie pop-rockers 5 Seconds of Summer return today with their fifth album, the aptly titled 5SOS5. The follow-up to 2020’s Calm was written during a trip to Joshua Tree, California, where the band members had a chance to recharge their batteries and create songs that came naturally, without much fuss. Hence the simplistic title.

“I think that just calling it 5SOS5 kind of represents this idea of everything just coming to us as it’s meant to,

Don’t ever say it’s over if I’m breathin’
