What the top songs of 2018 say about relationships

The year is almost over! 2018 has been an important year for us here at Status. To round it off, we’ve found a song from the top-charts of each month this year that reflects what we want to take forward with us into the year ahead.

  1. January: River (Eminem ft. Ed Sheeran)

This chart topper began our year with the painful truth about how difficult it can be to keep a relationship healthy. Eminem shows us once again how to own up to our mistakes and be honest in love.

  1. February: These Days (Rudimental ft Jess Glynn, Macklemore & Dan Caplen)

The ups and downs of relationships can be tough, but Rudimental makes sure we know things pass and change. It’s important to remember that things always get better, and even bad memories make us stronger.

  1. March: Paradise (George Ezra)

Just in time for spring, George Ezra reminded us how amazing and raw love can make us feel.

  1. April: No Tears Left To Cry (Arianna Grande)

Arianna gave us this tune to keep our heads up and carry on dancing. Broken hearts are painful, but we all have the strength to get back up and surround ourselves with people who make us happy.

  1. May: One Kiss (Calvin Harris & Dua Lippa)

This club song definitely reminds us of the passion and attraction we find in love. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, so let’s celebrate healthy sexual relationships in 2019.

  1. June: Solo (Clean Bandit ft Demi Levato)

It’s hard to have fun when you’re not used to being alone. Sometimes things just don’t feel the same. It’s just as important to have a healthy relationship with yourself too.

  1. July: In My Feelings (Drake)

When you fall hard, taking the time to be honest with yourself and the other person is vital. Don’t be afraid to tell people how you feel about them.

  1. August: All I Am (Jess Glynn)

In any good relationship, it’s important to have each-others backs. Being there for the people you love means they’ll be there for you when you need them most.

  1. September: Happier (Marshmello & Batille)

Sometimes, ending a relationship or leaving someone we love is the best way to look after them or ourselves, even if it will hurt us.

  1. October: A Million Dreams (P!nk)

P!nk recorded this cover with her daughter. Don’t forget that relationships with families and friends are just as important to nurture and keep healthy as with any partners.

  1. November: Thank u, next (Arianna Grande)

‘Failed’ relationships aren’t always a burden or baggage. Maybe we can take a leaf out of Arianna’s book and grow ourselves further from them?

And so to December. Let us know what your song to round up the year of relationships would be.
