The best of the best bangers.
The sheer number of songs released each year has become so staggering, what with all the one-off singles and album tracks, that finding new music has grown increasingly difficult. That's where our list of the the best songs of the year comes in. We scour the output of major and up-and-coming artists and filter it all down to this frequently updated playlist of absolute jams.
Whether you're looking for some encouragement or just need to be reminded of the strong and powerful woman you are, there are tons of awesome songs out there to choose from for any situation. Here are some of the best girl power songs EVER Taylor Swift shines a big light on the double standards between men and women in this song from her album Lover. Most empowering lyric: "A girl can do what she wants to do and that's what I'm gonna do". For anyone feeling stuck in the gutter, Kelly helps us remember that weathering life's biggest storms only make us stronger. The rap at the end of this song is everything! It's a rallying cry, and a mantra rolled into one. Most empowering lyric: "She who writes the movie owns the script and the sequel".
Every summer is only as good as the song that defined it. This year had its work cut out for it. These are the songs—whether we chose them or not—that will be playing in the background of our memories of a specific time and place. As for who reigned supreme? Time will tell. You can listen to the full Songs of Summer playlist on our Spotify, too. That is called art. Released at the beginning of August, the song shot to number 11 on the Billboard charts and even managed to nab an MTV Video Music award, proving that Megan Thee Stallion is not concerned with running out of time. With a doot-doo melody, a jazzy lean, and feather light production, the sweetest song of the summer arrived as July faded. Danielle Haim penned the song for her partner, Ariel Rechtshaid, who co-produced the cut with Vampire Weekend-alum Rostam, following his diagnosis of testicular cancer several years ago.
