It’s time to get grooving with this season’s BEST tunes, music-lovin’ friends. If you’ve already scheduled which must-watch movies you’ll be checking out in the coming months, then you should definitely take a peek at this list of the hottest songs of summer 2017 (so far). With tunes from artists including Carly Rae Jepsen and Drake, this playlist is gonna be LIT.
1. Carly Rae Jepsen, “Cut to the Feeling”: Carly Rae Jepsen’s new “Cut to the Feeling” wastes no time when it comes to getting you in the groove, and we just can’t help but sing along to the wildly upbeat tune (which is perfect for blasting in the car while you’re road-tripping with your besties). We can pretty much guarantee you’ll know all the words to this song before the summer is through.
2. Calvin Harris Featuring Frank Ocean & Migos, “Slide”: Calvin Harris enlisted Frank Ocean and Migos for his newest track, the super summery “Slide.”
3. Drake, “Passionfruit”: It wouldn’t feel like summer without a Drake hit to see us through the sizzling heat, and he came through with his pitch-perfect “Passionfruit.”
4. Kendrick Lamar Featuring Rihanna, “Loyalty”: While we still wish there was a Drake and Rihanna duet on the radio this summer, we can at least appease ourselves by enjoying them each individually. This Kendrick Lamar song featuring RiRi (albeit briefly) is one of the standouts of the season.
5. Lorde, “Green Light”: We’ve been dancing to Lorde’s “Green Light” for a few months now, but that won’t stop us from keeping this lively tune on repeat for the rest of the season.
6. Haim, “Want You Back”: Haim is on the scene once more with “Want You Back,” which proves that the musical sisters still have what it takes to get us singing along to every peppy (and uber sincere) lyric.
7. Harry Styles, “Meet Me in the Hallway”: While we wait for One Direction to find their way back to each other, Harry Styles has given us enough 1D goodness to get us through the summer with “Meet Me in the Hallway.”
8. Selena Gomez, “Bad Liar”: With its retro ‘70s video (that may just happen to have a sneaky Taylor Swift cameo of sorts) and a memorable bass line sampled from Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer,” this is the song that we simply can’t get enough of this summer. Turn it up, friends, and sing it loud: “I’m tryin’, I’m tryin’ / Not to give in to you … With my feelings on fire / Guess I’m a bad liar…”
