15 More Must Have Grooves For Your Summer 2018 Playlists

Now that we’re in the very heart (and heat!!) of summer, you should waste no time in maximizing those sun-kissed playlists as much as possible. 

With that being said, take a lil’ break from perfecting the “In My Feeling” choreo (you too, Mom) and let the latest and greatest grooves from Ariana Grande (yas), Matvey Emerson, Husky, Bebe Rexha, Childish Gambino, Duke Dumont and J Balvin get all sorts of in as we ride along into the end of July. 

Plus, Lady Gaga’s ‘The Fame’ record is turning 10 next month, and there’s truly no better time to get the party started other than right..now. 

Lady Gaga/”Eh, Eh(Nothing Else I Can Say)”/Random Soul Remix   Kicking things off with a Gaga throwback, Mother Monster’s debut opus, The Fame, is turning 10 next month, so what better time to celebrate it all other than right now with this ultra sun-kissed remix that’ll hit you in all of the right G spots. And yes, we’ll get to the meat dress a (nasty!) touch later, but for now, um, just dance to this rainbow-worthy remix and everything else on this playlist. 

J Balvin/Willy William/’Mi Gente”      Because 10, 000 times is never enough….

Ariana Grande/”God is a Woman”   Indeed, Ari, indeed…and this video, tho…just watch. 

Duke Dumont/Ebenezer/”Inhale”     We’re going straight to the disco with this one, kids. 

Bebe Rexha/Quavo/”2 Souls on Fire”    This year’s summer fling/breakup anthem is right here…light it up. 

Childish Gambino/”Summertime Magic”   Groove on, Mr. Gambino, groove the f#$k on. 

Just Us/Wolves by Night/”Flirtatious”(James Hype Remix)   Deeply delicious. 

Drake/Michael Jackson/Don’t Matter to Me”    It’s just that summer groove. 

Chez Moon/”Close to Me”(Swanrick Remix)     Those hot-and-steamy summer nights, tho….the best. 

Goodluck/”Saved by the Summer”   No explanation needed…

Nicki Minaj/Ariana Grande/”Bed”     Nicki and Ari done did it again…..

Matvey Emerson/”Better Days”    Hey, summer, we feel you all up in this bold banger. 

Husky/”Promise Me”   …and another one….

Demi Lovato/”Cool for the Summer”/Todd Terry Rewerk    Because it’s simply just not summer without this fiery refiring of Ms. Lovato’s now classic summer anthem. Happy dancing!!

5 Ways to Prepare for Britney’s Atlantic City Takeover

Get ready, Atlantic City, because for what’s sure-to-be three spectacular nights…..it’s Britney, bitch.

Yes, that’s right, beginning tonight, July 19th, through this Saturday, July 21st, the legendary Ms. Britney Spears is bringing her Las Vegas owning Piece of Me Vegas spectacle under the spotlights at the Event Center in Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

And while indeed, there are many, many ways to prepare for our beloved Princess of Pop and all that her box office destroying show has to offer (and it’s a whole lot, folks, so grab those last few tickets while you still can), here are 5 sure fire ways to get the entire Jersey Shore and beyond more than ready for all things Brit Brit

Let’s go. 

1.Dance to the fact that “…Baby One More Time” is turning 20 this fall…..     You might want to mark October 23rd down on your calendar because it’s sure to be a national holiday as Ms. Spears legendary debut ditty (that opening keyboard riff, tho…priceless) will be celebrating twenty years of still owning our pom-pom wearin’ lives. While it’s easy to feel old at this coveted news (two decades…seriously??), you should waste no time in squeezing into those Catholic School Gurl digs and practicing that choreo because we need to party ’90s Britney-style, um, one more time and celebrate a track that legitimately changed the face of the pop music landscape forever. Like, seriously. Oh, baby, baby indeed. 

2.Watch this “Toxic” performance on repeat….    While we could spill Godney tea all day and burn our corneas out watching each and every one of her earth shattering live performances, for the sake of our general well beings, let’s just say they’re all legendary….yes, even that one. But if there’s one performance that’s sure to get you all sorts of right prior to her AC takeover, it’s this smokin’ hot take of “Toxic” that will certainly do the trick and will always get us thinking of these seven magical little words…in the zone and up all night. Anyone remember? Of course you do. Now, dance. 

3.Show ‘Glory’ a little love……     Let’s face it, you barely listened to Britney’s ninth studio offering when it was released two years ago, and you most likely haven’t listened to it recently..and no, no that certainly isn’t a question. Although it was well received by critics, Britney’s most recent-and quite excellent-set didn’t fare so well on the charts…and it’s a damn shame. Lead single, “Make Me,” still makes for a credible bedroom banger (despite the video drama), and the oh, so underrated “Slumber Party” and its Tinashe co-starring hot-as-f@#k video simply demand repeat viewings. Then you’ve got the bumpin’ “Clumsy,” then there’s, ah, well, just relive it all below and find your Glory-us moment. But by the way, when is that next album dropping, B?? 

4.Watch these slaying clips from Britney’s Vegas show…..   If there’s one thing that Ms. Britney proved to the world while her Piece of Me show was dominating the Vegas trip (besides, well, everything), it’s that she still knows how to throw down her classic choreography. From “Slave” to “Crazy” to “Oops” to “Me Against the Music,” the yaas-worthy compilation video below shows our Queen B displaying that she still knows how to get it, get it….what. Just watch and you better practice those moves before this weekend, bitch. 

5.Listen to “Work Bitch” every day of your Britney lovin’ life……    Now, you betta werk, bitch, and get those tickets to see Godney own Atlantic City this weekend.
