SUMMER IS HERE, WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO?
In just a few days we will be entering summer. Although things have been a little different this year, I believe that we are still excited about the unique summer heat! The excitement that we are looking forward to enjoying outdoors, especially after this lock down makes summer even more special. The world is slowly but surely to some form of normalcy, so let’s get one thing straight: whether or not we’re quarantined, music will be a part of an amazing summer 2020.
We saw that the glue that kept the world together during this pandemic was really the creativity of musicians, DJs and other artists. These entertainers and performers contributed to virtual concerts to keep us entertained at home. Through music they made the time spent with our family even more special. As we prepare to venture back outside, music will continue to be our universal language.
We probably will not be able to attend big concerts like we normally do during the summer months, or travel to that destination vacation we were planning for months, however I do think that we will get creative and enjoy the new summer hits. We can still channel that same club and terrace energy as we dance and sing along to some of our favorite singers and entertainers. The first step is checking out a few of these new summer songs below. I guarantee you that they will get you hyped up—whether you’re getting ready for a Zoom happy hour with friends (very popular since COVID-19) or planning to drive while listening to some good tunes.
“Rare” – Selena Gomez’ is a 13-track masterpiece that immediately became one of the best albums of 2020. It’s vulnerable, sexy, and will give you all of the feels that are supposed to be felt in the summer: love, excitement, and fun.
“Blinding Lights” – The Weeknd I do not think the whole album can be considered a “Summer Jam”, I particularly, like “Blinding Lights” is a let-loose song that will come in handy for mid-day dance breaks.
“Ritmo” – Black Eyed Peas & J Balvin This one is actually from 2019, courtesy of the Bad Boys for Life soundtrack. This party anthem is still going strong and I think it will remain with that status for the rest of 2020. It’s just one of those songs that makes you want to hit the dance floor right away as you enter the – club – or in this case the comfort of your living room.
“Toosie Slide” – Drake, “Toosie Slide” gives us a glimpse at how the superstars lives and spoils himself. This song is very popular on social media, specifically Tik – Tok. Young and old are enjoying the beat and a new version of a slide.
“Savage Remix” – Megan Thee Stallion ft. Beyoncé The internet lost its mind when Houston natives Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé dropped the “Savage Remix,” and it’s safe to say nobody will be the same. Let Hot Girl Summer round two begin!
I think it is a fact that these songs will get you to bob, regardless of where you are at or what you are doing. The energy imposed by these great vocalists are contagious and might be the only virus that you are willing to risk getting. Happy summer everyone!
