When getting ready, listening to music is a must! Music is needed when doing your makeup and hair, while pre-drinking, and of course while dancing in the club! Without music, the experience would not be enjoyable because music is what keeps us in the mood to have fun. But sometimes we aren’t in the mood when we have plans to go out with our friends, and at those times it can be hard to push ourselves to get ready and go. What better way is there to get ourselves in the mood than listening to upbeat songs? Here is a list of seven songs that are great for getting yourself in the mood to party!
1. Swalla – Jason Derulo Ft. Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign
This song just has a beat that makes me want to move and take shots. It’s upbeat, fun, and who doesn’t like a little rap session with Nicki Minaj? Nicki Minaj’s lyrics have the capability to make any women feel sexy. This is a great song to listen to while getting ready for a night out.
2. That’s What I Like – Bruno Mars
This new Bruno Mars song just makes me feel so incredibly happy. I’m not completely sure why, but it’s just one of those songs that can put anyone in a good mood, even if you are having a really shitty day. This is definitely one of my top fav songs right now, and it’s a great one to get you in the mood to party.
3. Touch – Little Mix
Touch is another one of those songs that can make you feel incredibly sexy while you dance and get ready, but it also a good one for when you are going out just with your girls. This song can make you feel scandalous and ready for a good night.
4. Side To Side – Ariana Grande Ft. Nicki Minaj
Oh yes, another Nicki Minaj rap sesh. I swear you can’t get enough of those when you are getting ready to go out. Side to Side is a great song to make you feel like a badass bitch for your night out with your friends!
5. Light My Body Up – David Guetta Ft. Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne
Okay, I realize this is another one with Nicki Minaj, but she just happens to be in all the best recent songs to pump you up to go out! Like I said, Nicki can make you feel all sorts of different ways and attractive and badass are two of those things. The music itself in this one could make anyone want to mirror dance.
6. I’m A Lady – Meghan Trainor
I know that a lot of people have an issue with Meghan Trainor, and I don’t blame them, but you have to admit, she makes catchy songs. This one is perfect for a GNO and can really make you feel empowered. Maybe that’s what you need to get in the mood to go out, female empowerment! I dig it.
7. Run Up – Major Lazer Ft. Nicki Minaj and PARTYNEXTDOOR
I know, Nicki Minaj again. Sorry, not sorry. Major Lazer did a fantastic job with the instrumental in this song. It is so catchy and could lift anyone’s spirits if they are in a bad mood. Also, the beat just makes me want to dance!
There are many great songs to listen to that can help get you in the mood to go out and have fun, but these are just some of my favorites. If you’re looking for something more Throwback Thursday appropriate, there’s always Party in the USA! Enjoy your night out, and hopefully, these songs help you get ready!
