Generations React To Top 10 Albums Of 2019 (So Far)
October 22, 2019
– Oh! We made a mistake! – This list is stressing me out. ♪ (industrial intro) ♪ – (FBE) So Don,
some really great music has been released so far this year.
– Are you talking to me? – (FBE) So in honor of us
being about halfway through the year, today we’re going to show you
the top ten albums of 2019 so far and see if you can correctly place
them in order from one to ten. – Oh, top ten albums
of 2019. – (FBE) So this list is gonna be
based on data collected by Nielson and it’s ranked
by what’s called Total Album Equivalent Consumption,
which is just a combination of album sales, song sales,
and audio streams. – I remember when it
was just record sales. – (FBE) So we’ll be showing you
a popular song off the album and you’ll give your best guess
as to where the album itself ranks from one to ten
based on that data. – Okay, sounds good. – (FBE) So we’re gonna give you this.
– This is gonna be fun. I’m excited. – (FBE) And while you’re watching,
you can start placing the videos where you think
they are in the top ten. If you get
an answer perfectly correct, you’d get two points,
but if you’re just one off, you still get one point.
– Okay. – (FBE) Ready to do this?
– Let’s do it. I’m so excited! – ♪ White shirt now red,
my bloody nose ♪ – Yes, dude! – Billie! I had a feeling
that this was in the top ten. – I feel like this
has to be very up there. This has been everywhere. – ♪ So you’re a tough guy ♪ – I. Love. Her. – ♪ Chest always so puffed guy ♪ – I probably liked
2 million of these streams alone. – ♪ Make your mama sad type ♪ ♪ Make your girlfriend mad tight ♪ – (singing along)
♪ Might seduce your dad type ♪ ♪ I’m a bad guy ♪ Duh. Yes! – All I was doing was
focusing on her nose, what was dripping out of her nose. – I’ve been hearing this song
a lot on the radio. – (FBE) All right, so where
do you think this is in the top ten? – Really, really high. I’m gonna put it as two for now. – I think it’s number one. – Billie Eilish gets one for me. – Billie Eilish is
When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go,
one of the best albums of the year. I’m gonna start at three. – ♪ Damn, my AP goin’ psycho ♪ ♪ Lil’ mama bad like Michael ♪ – (sighing) I love Post Malone. – Oh, Post Malone, yeah. – This was last year’s top ten. – ♪ My roof look like a no-show ♪
– Eh. – ♪ Got diamonds by the boatload ♪ ♪ Come with the Tony Romo ♪ ♪ For clowns and all the bozos ♪
– I hear this song a lot but I know it’s not number one. – ♪ My AP goin’ psycho,
lil’ mama like Michael ♪ – He’s on the ra–
he kind of owns the radio lately. – (singing along)
♪ My roof look like a no-show ♪ ♪ Got diamonds by the boatload ♪ – ♪ Don’t act like you my friend ♪ ♪ When I’m rollin’
through my ends, though ♪ – It looks like Mad Max,
where he’s on his way to Burning Man. – ♪ Don’t act like you my friend ♪ ♪ When I’m (mumbling) ♪ And up and down
and up and down and nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh. Screw it. – (FBE) So you were
in this episode last year and this album
was in the episode last year in 2018 but also made the list in 2019.
– That’s insane. So I’m trying to think
would that still be higher or would that make it lower? I’m gonna put Post at two. – Number five. – A lot of the songs on here,
I think, are still played very often on the radio. I’m actually gonna put Post
at number two. – I’ll put him at number two for now
because I know who he is and I like him. – ♪ One taught me love ♪ – Oh! This is number one–
– It has to be one or two. – I love Ariana Grande.
There’s not one song by her that I don’t like. – ♪ But that’s not what I see ♪ – I love Ariana Grande. – This also was a bop
that everyone was quoting, everyone was playing. – I love this music video. – ♪ Thank you, next (next) ♪ – I love how Kris Jenner was in it.
I was like, yes. – ♪ I’m so [bleep] grateful for my ex ♪ – Hmmm.
Thank U, Next was a really good album. Everyone streamed that. I was listening to it this morning
on the way here. – We are gonna put
that at number three. – Number six. – I’m gonna put it at one. – Number three because
you hear it on the radio but not all the time. – I love this album.
It’s probably my favorite. I can’t let my bias of loving her
mix into the actual score but I’ll also put her at one. – ♪ Look back at it ♪ ♪ She ain’t never do this before ♪
– Who’s that? – I have never heard of this person.
– Oh, gosh. – Okay, never heard of him
and it says “Boogie.” That’s not a boogie
that’s a rap song. – That’s his name? Okay. – ♪ Oh, the girls
just wanna have fun… ♪ – I don’t know who this is. – ♪ It’s hard to stay low
when everybody know this, yeah ♪ – Meh. I don’t know. It’s getting worse. – ♪ …never made love ♪
– I don’t know how to sing it but I know the song. – ♪ …feel good when I look at it ♪ – I just don’t listen to this stuff. I mean, I’ve heard this before
on the radio and stuff. – ♪ These girls ain’t
really no good for me, yeah ♪ – Really? This is in top? I’ve been bombarded
with all these artists on my timeline, like Spotify,
the radio, they’re all in my face. He hasn’t been. I’ll put him at ten. – What’s his name again? I don’t even know how to put it. “A Hoodie With a Booty”?
What was it? – We’re gonna put him at number ten
because I don’t even know who he is. – Number ten. – I’m gonna put Boogie
at number eight. – It’s gonna be like
one of those things where it’s like we have no idea
and never heard of it and it’s gonna be number one.
– Yeah. – We’re putting Hoodie at number nine. – ♪ Mama… just killed a man ♪ – (both gasping) – Oh, shoot! I literally was not expecting this. – Awww, I just saw this movie.
It’s so good. – Oh, Roger was so much cuter. – This might be number one. – ♪ …and thrown it all away ♪ – (singing along)
♪ Mama… ooh-oo-ooh ♪ – (singing along)
♪ Mama… ooh-oo-ooh ♪ – I actually think that the movie
probably made the original Queen music played more than the soundtrack. – ♪ Carry on, carry on ♪ ♪ Because nothing really matters… ♪
– Oh, I love it. – God, good song.
God, a good song. – (FBE) So where are you putting Queen?
– Two. – I’m gonna put it at two
but I’ll probably move it. – This movie came out
and everyone lost it, you know, and I’m sure that equals tons
of Queen streams. I’m gonna put Queen at number five. – Oh, I’ve heard of Khalid, yeah. – Khalid, Free Spirit.
That’s right. That album came out this year. – (singing along)
♪ Nothin’ feels better ♪ – I like this because
it’s more R&B. It’s not so much just rap. – ♪ We don’t got to hide ♪ ♪ This is what you like, I admit ♪ – Honestly, him and Billie are young
and thriving. I was like, man, I wish
I was like this at 16 years old. What the heck? – ♪ That is what you like, I admit ♪ ♪ Nothin’ feels better than this ♪ – He’s a radio bombard, too. Love his music.
I think he’s so talented but I know any music
he releases, like, will be shoved down my throat
for three weeks straight. – He’s so good. Okay. We’re just gonna put him
at six for now though. – I’ll put seven. – I’m gonna put Khalid at five. – Seven. His voice didn’t capture me,
his delivery. – For now, I’ll just put it
at number five. I can see already
I’m gonna change some of these but that’s okay. – ♪ I’ve been dancin’ on top of cars ♪ – OH! We made a mistake! – We’re gonna see them twice. – Oh, Jonas Brothers. – Oh, that’s right.
Their album came out this year, too. – Oh, my gosh.
Why did I not– oh, my god. Of course! – Did this album
really make it that far? – (singing along) ♪ …and the pain ♪ ♪ The tattoo inside my brain ♪ ♪ And, baby, you know it’s obvious ♪ – ♪ I’m a sucker for you ♪ – Corgis! – That’s a lot of Corgis. – ♪ You say the word and I’ll go
anywhere blindly ♪ ♪ I’m a sucker for you ♪ – Are all of their wives in this?
That’s really cute! – Such a cute music video,
with their girls. AH! – (singing along) ♪ I’m a sucker
for all the subliminal things ♪ ♪ No one knows about you ♪ ♪ About you, about you ♪ – The Jonas brothers are very–
I hear them a lot. – ♪ It’s true, I’m a sucker for you ♪ ♪ (whistling) ♪ – Oh, I love Jonas Brothers. – This is definitely number two. I hear this a lot on the radio
more than “Bad Guy.” – Number four. I like the Jonas Brothers. I understand their lyrics.
It’s romantic. – Oh, my heart wants to just be like
you deserve number one. I already have spots
one through five filled, so I’d have to put them at six
because that’s the highest I can give them. – ♪ She told me
put my heart in a bag ♪ Juice WRLD. Yeah, this is really good. – ♪ …from her love ♪ ♪ I’m not fast ♪ – I don’t really like
Juice WRLD that much. – Our hair is just like…
is it mine? – His voice is not the business. – ♪ Now I’m digging up a grave
from my past ♪ – Uh, I don’t care for it. – He has very emotional music,
where I’m like, yeah, screw my ex
every times he sings. – ♪ I can’t reverse it ♪ – Juice WRLD is popular. A very great artist
that has been up and coming. – I’m gonna give him a nine. – Number nine. I don’t hear it. – I’m gonna put him at ten. I don’t like this whole thing
with the smoking and the death race… no. – ♪ I’m off the deep end ♪ – OH NO!
– It’s such a good movie. – I’m gonna cry. – (singing along)
♪ …watch as I dive in ♪ I love this song. – (sighing) I love this.
I love Gaga. I love the movie. – ♪ Crash through the surface
where they can’t hurt us ♪ ♪ We’re far from the shallow now ♪ – I didn’t even watch this movie. – ♪ In the shallow… ♪
– Bradley Cooper! – And who thought
he could sing that well? – ♪ In the shallow… ♪ – I’m getting sweat chills
all over my body right now. That’s just every– GOD! That deserves number one, too. – My only spots open
are four and ten, so I’m gonna put it at four. – Numero uno.
I love the artist. Bradley Cooper is a surprise. – This song was really good
but, again, I’m not sure if I can recall any other song
from this soundtrack. I’m gonna put it at five
but I’m definitely gonna drop it. – ♪ That’s a real one
in your reflection ♪ – Ooh, Drake is not number one. – Drake is always super high up there. – ♪ You gotta be nice for what… ♪ – I hear this song a lot.
It’s okay. – ♪ You got a baby Benz,
you got some bad friends ♪ ♪ High school pics,
you was even bad then ♪ – He so deserves it. I saw him live,
I’m pretty sure for this tour. He’s incredible. – Dang, this is gonna be a tough list! – (gasping) I love her!
She’s so cute! – That’s some really good people
in the music video, but he’s not number one.
Sorry, Drake. – It’s a really good album. – This list is stressing me out. I guess I’ll put him at eight. – I put Scorpion at number one. – Number five. I really should drop that one
into no man’s land, frankly, because it sounds like everything else. – (FBE) So now that you’ve watched
through all of these, we’re gonna give you a chance
to make your changes. Let us know when you’re locked.
– Okay. – Jonas Brothers is gonna be three now
and Ariana Grande is gonna be four. – We’ll make Juice WRLD number ten
and we’ll make Boogie number nine. – Hoodie should be ten
because I like Drake better. – Just because we all know
how much I love Queen, I’m putting the soundtrack
there at number one for Queen. – (FBE) So now that you’re done
making changes, we’re gonna go from number ten
to number one and we’ll see how many you got right.
– Okay, let’s do it. – (FBE) Don’t forget,
you get two points for every one you got spot on
and one point for every one that you were one away
from getting right. – You know what?
I don’t care. I know what I like! – (FBE) Number ten…
– I swear. – (FBE) What? – It’s gonna be something big
and I’ll be like WHY?! – (FBE) Number ten is Jonas Brothers
with their album Happiness Begins. – WHY?! – What? I hear them
a lot on the radio! What the heck? – I wasn’t even near right. – (FBE) Number nine is Juice WRLD
with Death Race– – I got one right! – Two points! – I got that right. – Oh, my god!
We’re so stupid. – (FBE) Number eight
is Queen with Bohemian Rhapsody,
the original movie soundtrack. – (gasping)
Pfft. No. Now I’m mad. Okay. – I got eight for Queen! – Ah… okay.
That’s also incorrect. I set Queen at six. – (FBE) Number seven,
Drake with Scorpion. – No, I have him at number eight. – Didn’t get that right. – Shut up! Wow,
we messed up. – (FBE) Number six,
Post Malone. – Two points! I’m doing good! – I’m pretty surprised by that, too. Every time I go on Google Play,
he’s right up there. – See, I’m totally out of it. These people, I don’t know
who’s gonna be number one. – (FBE) Number five is
A Boogie With a Hoodie. – That’s tight. – Really? Well…
I knew that. – I put them as tenth. – Number five?
What the heck? – (FBE) Number four is Lady Gaga
and Bradley Cooper, A Star is Born soundtrack.
– I’m sorry but everybody else is wrong
and I’m right. – Wow, still up there.
Good job. – (FBE) Number three, Khalid.
– I got three for Khalid. – Oh, and I had him at two. I had Jonas Brothers at three,
where they belong. – (FBE) Number two, Billie Eilish
When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
– Billie at two? That’s tight! – Two points! – I was one off. – I should have assumed
that she would have been higher. Everyone’s very obsessed
with her at the moment. – (FBE) What that means…
number one is Ariana Grande with Thank U, Next.
– Wow. You know, she’s been through a lot,
so I’m really happy she’s up there. – I’m glad that Billie’s number two.
Ariana Grande? (fake crying) – I got that one right! – I should have gone with my gut.
I’m so sorry, Ari. – I’m sorry, Ariana,
but I hear “Bad Guy” more. – (FBE) So finally,
since we have different generations here to shoot this episode,
we’re wondering do you think that your generation
still cares about actual albums now that people can
just stream the songs that they like? – I think we care about them. – I really don’t think so
because we can stream songs, so we can just pick our single songs
that we enjoy. – Albums in the past,
they do a better job now than then because we would have a hit song
and we couldn’t wait to get an album out,
so we’d just slap ten other songs in there, so I think albums
are worth their money now more than in the past. – It’s people my age
who are the big music fanatics and they’re the ones who care a lot
about this new album dropped. Let’s listen to the whole thing through
and see what’s up and create a conversation. – Thanks for jamming on
to this episode of Generations React. – Shout-out to OMG Teran. – Be sure to hit that notification bell
so you never miss an episode. – What is your favorite album
so far this year? Let us know in the comments. – Thanks for watching! Bye! – Hey, it’s Sierra,
producer here at FBE. Thanks so much for watching
this episode of Generations React. If you want to see our other episodes
