The summer is finally here! In case you’re looking for some music for your trip down the shore or for a weekend barbeque, here are 5 songs to get you in the mood for for the upcoming season:
1. Drake — “Summer Sixteen”
Although “Summer Sixteen” didn’t make it onto Drake’s latest album “Views,” the track is still a strong contender for song of the summer. The track is perfect to get you excited for the holiday weekend and the upcoming season. You can expect to see his lyrics “All summer sixteen, playing dirty not clean,” on social media photos throughout the next couple of months.
2. Justin Timberlake — “Can’t Stop The Feeling”
Justin Timberlake has made a triumphant return to music with his single “Can’t Stop The Feeling.” The song has been making waves on the radio since its release on May 5 and should be a song that’s heard on Top 40 stations throughout the summer.
3. Bryan Adams — “Summer of ’69”
Take a trip down memory lane with Bryan Adam’s 1983 track about summers from yesterday.
4. Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg — “California Gurls”
Do your best left shark impersonation as you enjoy Katy Perry’s song about how “unforgettable” California girls are. The Beach Boys originally had a song called “California Girls” in 1965 and Perry decided to make her own version of the song that fits right in with the season.
5. Nelly — “Ride Wit Me”
While some may look to “Hot in Herre” as Nelly’s summer anthem, “Ride Wit Me” is also another solid choice. Enjoy one of Nelly’s first hits from his 2000 album “Country Grammar.”
