Summer is here, and has been since April. With it came hotter temperatures, frozen desserts, and lazy beach days. Summer has also always brought with it a host of hot radio songs, because people just want to have fun, relax, and dance during the season. That is why I have decided to dedicate this month’s blog post to 10 of my all-time favorite summer songs. The list of my top ten favorite summer songs are below. Enjoy!
1-Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff-Summertime
This song makes me want to get up and dance, it makes me smile, and reminds me of days gone by that were spent laying or playing in the sun when I was a kid.
2-Dj Khaled, Rihanna, and Bryson Tiller-Wild Thoughts
Rihanna delivered once again, and Bryson Tiller only makes the song hotter. The song is sexy, smooth, and catchy. I believe it samples Carlos Santana’s “Maria Maria”, and I also love that song. Rihanna’s and Bryson Tiller’s vocals are everything in this song.
3-Teyana Taylor, Pusha T, and Yo Gotti-Maybe
This song is also sexy, and has a southern twang to it. Taylor’s voice cascades over the beat while Yo Gotti’s rap lyrics add southern flavor to the song and Pusha T’s lyrics add a touch of rawness and grittiness to it.
4-Sevyn Streeter and Chris Brown-It Won’t Stop
I love this song because it reminds me of Aaliyah’s music and summer music. The song makes me want to sing along to it.
5-Mack Morrison-Return of the Mack
This is one of my all-time favorites. I’m not promiscous or having a hot girl summer, but it’s just something about feeling like you’ve still got it after a break-up that makes a person feel good. This song inspires that feeling in its listeners.
6-Sza- Love Galore featuring Travis Scott
I just love Sza. The girl can sing, has deep lyrics, and is talented. This song is her at her best to me!
7-Big Pun and Joe-Still Not A Player
This is one of my childhood favorites. I love the R&B beat, Joe’s smooth vocals, and Big Pun’s rhythmic style.
I love Swv, because they can sing! This is one of my favorite songs because it captures the essence of falling and being in love perfectly.
9-Michael Jackson-P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)
I love this song for its sassiness, boldness, playfulness, and homage to young beautiful women. In it, Micheal flirts with a woman of his interest. The man was King of Pop for a reason!
10-Yo Gotti-Gangsta Party
It’s Yo Gotti, 8 Ball, MJG, and a host of other southern rappers. What’s not to love?
