Yes, I know that WOW Hits 2017 releases in September 2016 (5 months away), but it’s never too early to predict which artists will be highlighted on the new compilation album. Every year, 3 artists are highlighted that the executives and powers that be deem to be artists that have made a substantial impact in that current year in terms of radio hits and powerful songs. So in 2016, which 3 artists do you reckon will get the ‘green light’ to appear on the annual WOW Hits compilation in the BONUS category (not the 6 bonus deluxe edition tracks but the 3 on the standard edition)? Who knows, but below are 10 artists I believe will be in the running for such a honour come September 2016.
While it has only been a few months since my first prediction of what I thought was going to be on WOW Hits 2017, within that time span many songs released to radio, and I have since revised my proposed list. While I know that no WOW Hits list can ever be perfect, I do know that timeliness is the key, and songs on the coveted WOW Hits compilation should reflect the claim that these songs on the compilation are indeed the top songs of that given year. While that indeed a discussion for another day and another time, what I will say is that choosing 39 songs that I believe should reflect the year of 2016 is a very difficult thing. Because frankly, you’d probably need two WOW Hits albums released per year to capture the number of hits. Nevertheless, this is what they have- WOW Hits albums releasing once a year in September sometime. So without further ado, here is my proposed list of songs I reckon should be at least considered for WOW Hits 2017 (note: a fair amount of songs included on my list in the post WOW Hits 2017: What’s Your Prediction (Part 1) are not present here and vice versa).
Hey everyone. I figured that while it’s only a few days until next year, now’s a good time as any to speculate about next year’s WOW Hits compilation. It’s about 9 months until the WOW Hits 2017 list is revealed (via email, and a little longer on social media), and about 3 months since WOW Hits 2016 was released. So while I will still write a site prediction list around the end of March, and again in July, I’m proposing one now, just to hear your thoughts!
Note: the above picture is of WOW Hits 2016, the WOW Hits 2017 cover hasn’t release yet (will probably release in June/July sometime)!
Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens. Last time, we unveiled 10 artists and songs that in our opinion should have been included on the official WOW Hits 2016 tracklisting, but weren’t. This time, on this special post, and in keeping with a similar theme, I will take an educated guess and list 20 songs that should be shoe-ins for WOW Hits 2017. Some songs have released, so audio slides/lyric videos/music videos/song stories will be below, but others haven’t been released yet and I am just predicting based on the artist. Will these tracks be there in a year’s time? Only time will tell.
