5 Songs You Need to Know for Summer 2015
We’re getting into the beginning of May and you know what that means — every artist wants the coveted title of “song of the summer.” Since it’s the end of the semester, we thought we’d give you the five songs that you’re going to be hearing a lot this summer. Learn the lyrics now so you can jam along all summer long.
1. "Where Are You Now" by Jack U ft. Justin Bieber
You’ve probably been living under a rock if you haven’t heard this song already, but don’t worry, you have all summer to catch up. This is my personal pick for song of the summer because of the star power, plus it may be one of the catchiest songs I’ve heard all year.
2. "All Hands on Deck" by Tinashe
Music fans around the world are slowly starting to realize that Tinashe is poised to be the next R&B superstar. Her video for this song already has over 4 million views on YouTube, and on top of that, she got a cosign from Kanye himself. This is definitely a song you’ll want to look out for.
3. "Stole the Show" by Kygo ft. James Parsons
Kygo has been on a roll in 2015 from killing it at Block Party to killing it at the deserts of Coachella. With a circuit of festival gigs lined up for the summer, and with his latest single having over 50 million plays on Spotify, Kygo’s newest hit will definitely only get bigger as the summer progresses.
4. "Lean On" by Major Lazer & DJ Snake ft. MO
Although this song has been out for a while, it’s been catching a lot of steam lately thanks to festival season being in full swing. This song has a catchy hook and amazing beat that equals all the ingredients for a summer smash.
5. "Bitch Better Have My Money" by Rihanna
This summer you’re more inclined to hear Rihanna’s latest single at a club or party than at a family bbq. That doesn’t take away from the fact that this song makes girls want to scream “BITCH BETTER HAVE MY MONEY!” at the top of their lungs. That won’t get annoying at all.
