My senior year is winding down, making my short lived college years come to an end. Memories are still prominent in my head from the time I was a freshman hanging with my newfound friends. Four years have gone by, and one thing we seemingly talk about is the music we've listened to since we first started college in Fall 2012. Hitmakers during the time tend to become obsolete until it's played for nostalgic purposes. It's ironic that songs can really trigger a notion of coming-of-age. Here are songs that will last a lifetime for the Class of 2016.
1. All Gold Everything - Trinidad James
All Gold Everything was the song every freshmen looked forward to during parties simply because of one line, "Shout out to them freshmen, on Instagram straight flexin."
2. F*ckin Problem - Kendrick Lamar feat. A$AP Rocky, Drake and 2 Chainz
Another party hit college students weren't fearful to sing aloud.
3. Pop That - French Montana
It may not be the twerking anthem (Back That Azz Up has already fulfilled the spot for over a decade) but you've definitely hit the dance floor when this song came on.
4. Karate Chop - Future feat. Lil Wayne
The greatest way to start off your first summer break.
5. Collard Greens - Schoolboy Q feat. Kendrick Lamar
The song that brought you and your high school friends together over the summer.
6. Started from the Bottom - Drake
It wasn't just the famous Drake single that caught everyone's attention. His 2014 hit album, "Nothing Was the Same" was a staple for any road trip.
7. Drunk In Love - Beyoncé
As all of us were stressing over finals week, Beyonce decided to drop this gem towards the end of our Fall 2013 semester.
8. Happy - Pharrell
The song that annoyed us in the mornings, but kept us pushing during our sophomore year.
9. Anaconda - Nicki Minaj
Some people had mixed reviews when Nicki Minaj dropped the Anaconda video, but it was a song that made you appreciate your assets even more.
10. Loyal - Chris Brown
11. Hot Boy - Bobby Shmurda
The one Vine that became an instant hit across the world.
12. No Type - Rae Sremmurd
When this duo hit the scene, there was no stopping them.
13. Tuesday - iLoveMakonnen
Although iLoveMakonnen was affiliated with other hit songs, this brought him on the charts.
14. I Don't F*ck With You - Big Sean
An anthem for all the college students who found out about their cheating significant other.
15. Hotline Bling - Drake
16. Jumpman - Future ft. Drake
Still kickin' it with this song playing in the background.
