2016 has kicked off to a great start music-wise! I am not sure how everyone’s resolutions are going but the charts have been booming. From Rihanna’s "Anti" album to Beyonce’s "Lemonade" to Drake’s "Views," my speakers have been blasting the best tunes this year. I cannot wait to see what is to come for this summer.
Summer is just starting and Meghan Trainor has already released a killer album two days ago that is sure to have everyone waving their fingers “no” at F*** boys and Ariana Grande has an album coming out on the 20th, featuring stars like Nicki Minaj, Future, Lil’ Wayne and Macy Gray. I may be biased because I am a huge Ari fan, but this album will be bomb.
Here are some of my predictions for songs that will be playing at a pool near you.
Also, here is the Spotify playlist to make my predictions come true.
*Side note* All of Beyonce's Lemonade album would be on this playlist if it were available on Spotify.
1. "Summer Sixteen"- Drake
I predict that this song will be played all summer '16.
2. "My Boo"- Ghost Town DJ's
This 1996 throwback has made a comeback just in time for this summer, all thanks to the Running Man Challenge. I am not sure why it is called the Running Man Challenge since they are not doing the Running Man. I would call it more of a horse trot.
But anyways, it all started with these two guys. Here's the story behind it.
3. "Beautiful Day"- Lil Yachty and Kylie Jenner Ft. Justine Skye and Jordyn Woods
This is absolutely terrible. It had so much potential. It has some great vibes, but who is Lil' Yachty? Other than the flat notes and over-used autotune, this song is catchy! I am "so soOo-oOory" for putting this on the list.
4. "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" (Seeb Remix)- Mike Posner
This remix will make you feel like you're at a rave and will definitely show Avicii that you're cool!
5. "Don’t Mind"- Kent Jones
This song, made famous by the great, djkhaled305 on Snapchat, will make you feel like you're traveling the world for the summer.
6. "Big Green Tractor Remix" –Jason Aldean
One country song is always necessary at a pool party and will always get everyone on their feet.
7. "Never Forget You"- Zara Larrson, MNEK
This song is on the list to get you in your feels.
8. "Uber Everywhere"- Madeintyo
Songs with weird noises are always a hit!
9. "One Dance"- Drake
"One Dance" will be the song of the summer and is a good representation of how the rest of his "Views" album is.
10. "Jordan Belfort"- Wes Walker and Dyl
Cheers to the college kid's anthem! I'm sure I am not the only one who is still disappointed they weren't able to perform at Winthrop.
11. "Wake Up"- Fetty Wap
“Throw your caps in the air like you know you made it.” This one is for all the graduates!
12. "Close"- Nick Jonas and Tove Lo
It looks like the Jonas Brothers will be doing great on the charts this summer, not together, though. Separately, sad face.
13. "Ride"- Twenty-One Pilots
If you're not going to play this at your pool party, at least play it while riding in your convertible with the top down.
