Okay, let’s talk about 2016, shall we?
Now, that that’s over with, let’s spill about that dear sweet music and how it kept us all from going all Britney-in’07 this year.
Well, most of us.
By the way, Brit Brit is on this list as well as delicious offerings from Demi Lovato, The Knocks, JoJo, Miguel Migs, Lisa Shaw, Lion Babe and a handful of other fabulous music artists who’ve got tracks you should absolutely get down to right about…now.
Demi Lovato/”Body Say” Without a doubt, the best pop song the former Camp Rock diva has ever recorded…and of the year. It’s too bad she, like, quit the biz. Those high notes from “Heart Attack” must have put her over the edge.
The Knocks/”Dreaming”/”The Feeling” Although this pair of gummy grooves by NYC’s The Knocks came out a few years back, they’re still delightful as ever and will get you more than ready for when the gentlemen take over The Foundry on March 4th.
JoJo/”Honest” That ’90s flavored beat, though. Prepare to vogue and serve….for your life. You’ve been warned, queen.
Gwen Stefani/”Send Me A Picture” Because who wouldn’t want to fantasize about sexting Blake Shelton. Oh, Ms Stefani…you lucky bish.
Skizzy Mars/JoJo/”Recognize” Go on, Ms. JoJo, for being the only music artist to be up on this list twice. And once you dive in and recognize, you’ll certainly understand why.
Rihanna/”Kiss it Better” The best sex jam of 2016. Bedroom door locked.
Britney Spears/”Just Luv Me” Just….listen.
Rationale/”Something for Nothing” These guitars mixed with those blinding synths mixed with that pop hook equals…sigh…
Pascal Junior/”Overdose” What happens when you take elements of Ciara’s irresistible (and oh, so highly underrated) pop groove and mix it with a lil’ deep house action? You get…this.
Mya/”Elevator” Looking to keep straight up elevatin’ all life long? Play this Mya groove on repeat. And yes, she’s still around.
Miguel Migs/Lisa Shaw/”I Can See It” Because you can never, ever, ever go wrong with a deeply layered Miguel Migs/Ms. Shaw collaboration. Ever.
Lion Babe/”Jump Hi” For those of you planning to join the gym for that first week in January, this track’s for you. It might even get you going for the whole entire year.
Chairlift/Moth to the Flame Another one of the best pop singles of the year is right here. And no, no, that certainly wasn’t a question.
Nite Funk/”Let Me Be Me” This delicious deep house groove is guaranteed to hit that music “G” spot in all of the right places. Just turn it up and..enjoy.
Zayn/”She” Go on, Mr. Malik, and your shirtless album cover, too.
Drake/Rihanna/”Too Good” Because another red-hot collaboration between Dreezy and RiRi always deserves another listen.
Conrad Sewell/’Who You Lovin'” One of the biggest pop songs of the year….that nobody cared about.
A Tribe Called Quest/”The Donald” Pure early ’90s/futuristic political music truth.
Zendaya/Chris Brown/”Something New” That classic TLC “Creep” sample, though…ooh.
