Although there have been many great hits this year, these 5 future hits will have you set with a good playlist for at least a week. Check it out below!
1. Charli XCX – “Break The Rules”
With a thrumming guitar throughout the song, rebellious, go-get-em lyrics, and an infection pop-rock breakdown, this song has everything necessary to be Charli XCX’s biggest hit yet. The buildup to the first breakdown captures a kind of suspense and wonder that not many songs can, and the hook will be stuck in your head for days. If you haven’t heard this song, get ready to be hearing it a lot more often.
2. Maroon 5 – “Animals”
If you don’t already hear this song once in a while on the radio, get ready for it to explode. Following the success of “Maps”, this song promises to provide Maroon 5 with yet another Billboard Hot 100 top ten. With an addictive melody, a relatable theme, and amazing vocals from none other than Adam Levine, this song screams hit. Not only that, it’s one of their catchiest songs yet!
3. Ariana Grande – “Love Me Harder”
Ariana Grande’s collaboration with The Weeknd couldn’t have turned out better. This throbbing pop/R&B jam really gives Ariana her own sound. Although the lyrics and production leave a little bit to be desired, something about this song just grows on you each time you hear it. The “love me, love me, love me/harder, harder, harder” bit probably has something to do with it.
4. Trey Songz f/ Nicki Minaj – “Touchin, Lovin”
Trey Songz last hit with Nicki Minaj had people talking about Minaj on and on, while also serving a great hip-hop/pop song (Bottoms Up, in case you were wondering). His newest collaboration with Nicki is no different; “Touchin, Lovin” sees Trey contribute stellar vocals and sexy melodies, while Minaj does her thing and delivers a verse so raunchy it’s impossible not to love it.
5. Tinashe – “All Hands On Deck”
Tinashe had a pretty decent hit earlier this year with “2 On”, and it looks like she’s hoping to replicate that success with her newest single, “All Hands On Deck”. A decadent club banger, this track will have you singing from Sunday to Saturday! The production is banging on this song, making it a perfect song to dance or party to. As long as her label handles everything right, this could be Tinashe’s biggest hit yet!
