2018 was an amazing year for hit music. 88.7 The Pulse wants to celebrate the best! Kicking off December 25th at 6 p.m is The Top 88 of 2018.

Drake had numerous No.1 singles! Three of them spent a combined seven months on the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Can you guess which ones?

Speaking of rappers, one of them has five tracks on 88.7 The Pulse’s Top 88 of 2018. I’ll give you a hint. He is from Texas. Who is it?

Even rockers made our top most-played tunes of 2018. In fact, those Grammy Award winners will perform at halftime of the College Football Playoff championship game on Jan. 7. They have four songs on our survey. Who are they?

Furthermore, two of the female artists we play on 88.7 The Pulse were nominated for Best New Artist at this year’s Grammy Awards. One of them has three songs on our countdown. Do you think it’s Bebe Rexha or Dua Lipa?

Maroon 5 and Cardi B teamed up for “Girls Like You,” and scored a number one song. It stayed at the top for seven weeks on the Billboard Hot 100.

Where will it place on the Top 88 of 2018? Tune in to 88.7 The Pulse December 25th at 6 p.m and find out!
