Just 10 more songs before the SONG list heads to 2017. From dance remixes to those slow ballads, I’ve got all the songs you need to hear right now. As always, you can listen to them all on Apple Music. Holiday Music, not included.
Don’t Hurt Yourself (feat. Jack White) by Beyoncé // Queen of the GRAMMYs and easily a Queen of the SONG list. This one earned Beyoncé a Best Rock Performance nod and its perfect for doing some planks at the gym.
On Hold by The xx // I. Am. SO. EXCITED. for their new album to come out in 2017. This lead single is holding me over until January, but get ready to bop along to this track. The band’s new vibe is a perfect hybrid of airy indie synths, sampling Hall & Oates, all with that Jamie XX drum beat.
American Money (Virtu Remix) by BØRNS // One of my favorite songs from 2015 gets a killer remix from Virtu. Prepare to dance the second that bass drops. It just makes you want to dance around at a pool party with Ray Bans on deck.
Stargirl Interlude (feat. Lana Del Rey) by The Weeknd // Now I LOVE The Weeknd’s new album (it made the ALBUM list: 2016). This LDR collab is 1000x better than BBHTM’s “Prisoner.” Cosmic and surprising, the duet is one I can’t wait to hear on vinyl.
City of Stars from La La Land // La La Land is easily my new favorite movie. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s performance of the main theme is transcendent. From the melodies to the simple production, it’s the perfect preview of the wonder that is the entire La La Land soundtrack.
Carry Me Home (feat. Maverick Sabre) by Jorja Smith // Jorja Smith is just something else. PURE talent. Hi. Hello. Please play some shows ASAP. She’s ONE TO WATCH. Like wow. Just TRUST ME.
Make Me (Cry) [feat. Labrinth] by Noah Cyrus // TALK ABOUT A DEBUT SINGLE. It’s pure pop. But insanely irresistible. Labrinth elevates the track and Cyrus proves she’s not the only kid of Billy Ray’s that can sing. Aren’t we all just suckers for a good pop song now and again?
I Don’t Wanna Live Forever by Zayn and Taylor Swift // Fifty Shades owning that soundtrack game again. While they have already hinted at Miguel’s new cover of “Crazy In Love,” this surprise drop last Friday kicked off the weekend. Swift gets sultry, Zayn belts out some high notes.
Higher by Rihanna // Further proof Rihanna can sing – PUMA CREEPERS not included.
Video Child by Many Voices Speak // Just another slow song added to my iPhone that I have to skip over at parties. JUST KIDDING. Yep, it’s sad and beautiful – nothing wrong with that combo – and my favorite song on this list. Elegance in an .mp3
