Summer is almost here. Memorial Day just took place, which means it’s officially time to start breaking out the summer activities (well, unless you’re Floridian like I am: We’ve already had summer weather for two months.) Since we officially have the OK from the CDC that we no longer have to social distance or wear a mask if we are vaccinated, it’s time to hit the pools, beaches, and everywhere else we missed out on last year. With that being said, here is a list of jams to blast during the summer of 2021.
1. Good 4 U – Olivia Rodrigo
Olivia Rodrigo took the world by storm through TikTok with the song ‘driver’s license.’ Since then, she has released absolutely nothing but bangers. Honestly, ‘Good 4 U’ brings me back to the punk-pop princess days with Avril Lavigne and Paramore. This song WILL have you singing along in a matter of seconds.
2. Peaches – Justin Bieber
It may not be the most upbeat song that Justin Bieber has released, but it’s vibes are unmatched.
3. MONTERO – Lil Nas X
This song will never be as popular as ‘Old Town Road,’ but it’s amazing nonetheless. Definitely, the best song of the summer to dance to as well.
4. Beautiful Mistakes – Maroon 5
Maroon 5 never fails to release great summer hits, and ‘Beautiful Mistakes’ is no exception. Personally, this song is stuck in my head multiple times a day.
5. Astronaut In The Ocean – Masked Wolf
Another song that took the world by storm through Tiktok has very chill vibes throughout. Highly recommend this song for hanging by the pool with a drink in your hand (preferably a margarita.)
6. Your Power – Billie Eilish
Billie Eilish has completely changed her image in the matter of one song! The power this girl holds with this song is absolutely amazing. It’s a great song to listen to if you’re looking to gain some confidence and find your power!
7. Best Friend – Saweetie
If you automatically don’t start singing this song every time you are around your best friend, are you even best friends? This song has everyone twerking and having a great time with its catchy lyrics.
8. We’re Good – Dua Lipa
Dua Lipa never fails to meet our expectations with her songs. While catchy, the chill vibes from this song keep us going even after a shitty fight with our significant other or a breakup. Is it our summer breakup anthem? Probably.
9. Traitor – Olivia Rodrigo
Going through a breakup? Honestly, Olivia Rodrigo’s entire album ‘Sour’ has you covered. This song will have you believing everyone who has ever done you wrong is a traitor, and the lyrics are unmatched.
10. Kiss Me More – Doja Cat
Doja Cat is still relatively new to the game, and this will more than likely be her first summer hit. This song is definitely one we need this summer.
All these hits are definitely songs you can jam to while heading to the beach or even your COVID-19 vaccine appointment. Regardless of the reason, these ten songs are sure to have you singing along and having a great time. Let’s make the summer of 2021 twice as fun this year!
