2020 has been a pretty crazy couple of months so far, but the one thing saving this year is the music. It seems like so long ago that some of these songs were released. Now with Summer approaching, music is important to have for your road trip, pool day, or just a relaxing day. So many great songs released this year can be contenders for Song of The Summer.
Make sure while you are adding the classics like “All Summer Long” and “California Gurls,” you don’t forget the songs from this year because most of them are straight bops and sound like summer and happy times.
Here are the top 5 2020 songs that you should have on your summer playlist.
“Watermelon Sugar” by Harry Styles
Although the song was released last year off Styles’ second solo album, Fine Line, it officially became a single this year when the music video was released in May. Needless to say, it broke the internet. But in any sense, “Watermelon Sugar” is the perfect Summer song. The song starts off with ‘tastes like strawberries on a Summer evening.’ It goes on to mention that Summer feeling, the end of June, summer feeling. What other proof do you need?
“X” by the Jonas Brothers Featuring Karol G
After making an amazing comeback last year, the Jonas Brothers have released three new songs just this year. “X” is that song that is stuck in everyone’s head and has become a TikTok dance trend. It makes you want to go to a club (when it is safe to do so again) and dance the night away with your best friends. Summer nights listening to this will be the best.
“Friends” by Jesse McCartney
Jesse McCartney is back with two new songs this year, gearing up to release his next full-length album. There are not too many songs about friends and the love you have for them. “Friends” is the perfect pool party, road trip and summer playlist song. Blast it loud when you are hanging out with the ones who make your life better during the best months of the year.
“Heartbreak Weather” by Niall Horan
Although not an official single off the album, “Heartbreak Weather” is a song you need to scream so loudly and dance like a maniac too. His whole album feels like Summer, but “Heartbreak Weather” is definitely the pick you should listen to this Summer. Rock out with your friends to it. Take a drive, roll the windows down, and blare it loud!
“Dance Again” by Selena Gomez
Gomez released her album, “Rare” at the beginning of this year and it was filled with some major bops. It makes you feel special, unique, and like you should enjoy life. “Dance Again” is not only a great song to dance to but it is great for a Summer playlist and the message is great for our situation right now. After going through a hard time, it feels so good to dance again.
