2017: Favorite Songs of the Year

steaknight.jpg

The year began with many feeling they were “Bad and Boujee,” and everyone chanting, “I don’t dance now, I make money moves.” Whether you couldn’t escape “Despacito” or “Gucci Gang,” the year had many unexpected hit songs that made us sick of hearing but somehow, we knew all the lyrics without realizing it. When I reflect on this year in music, I look back on songs that remind me of fond memories and tunes I played until I began to hate them—from pop to indie rock. I found something great within all genres. Here are 10 tunes I loved this year and afterwards check out a playlist of my ultimate jams of the year.  

 

Calvin Harris feat. Frank Ocean and Migos | Slides 

Lyrics: Put some spotlight on the slide//Whatever comes, comes through clear
