Ten Songs That Need to Be On Your Summer Playlist This Year

Summer is fast approaching, and we all know, everything gets better in summer. There’s no school or college for starters…you stay up late, spend a lot of time by the beach and watch beautiful sunsets at the end of the day. However most importantly, you get to make a whole new summer playlist for those endless summer parties or the nights spent down by the beach. So, here is CelebMix’s top ten songs that you need to make sure are on this year’s summer playlist! :

10. ‘Perfect – Matoma Remix’ by One Direction & Matoma

We’re big fans of the 1D boys here at CelebMix and even bigger fans of their song ‘Perfect’! But if you haven’t listened to this remix by 24-year-old Norweigan DJ Matoma, you are definitely missing out! This song has been around for a while being part of 1D’s Perfect EP, but it’s only started raising eyebrows now after being played at Day 1 of Coachella by Matoma himself.  Check it out here!

9. ‘This Must Be My Dream’ by The 1975

Off their new album, ‘I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It’ (still the best title, EVER), this song has to make it onto your playlist this summer! It’s sparkling melody and gorgeous sax solo is perfect for every situation, whether it’s breaking out into dance with your mates or just a tune to relax to at the end of a busy day. Add it to your playlist here!

8. ‘7/11’ by Beyoncé

A (slightly) old but pure gold track, no summer playlist is complete without Queen B. This one is definitely made for dancing like no one’s watching, as demonstrated by Beyoncé herself in the video below:

Get the ‘7/11’ here!

7. ‘Sorry’ by Justin Bieber

This song is a prime example of those songs which can be so overplayed on the radio and you may have listened to it 1001 times (we have), but you can never ever get bored of it and every time you hear it you have to stop for a moment and pretend you can dance like these ladies:

Get JB’s ‘Sorry’ here!

6. ‘Lush Life’ by Zara Larsson

Another one you can never get sick of, Lush Life is THE summer song of the moment. 18-year-old ‘It Girl’ of the moment Zara Larsson shows off her incredible vocals and doesn’t disappoint by giving us the possibly greatest ever tune to add to our summer playlist!

Nice moves Zara, another dance routine to learn before the summer! Get ‘Lush Life’ here.

5. ‘Cake By The Ocean’ by DNCE

New and upcoming band DNCE, headed by Joe Jonas showcased their EP ‘SWAAY‘ in 2015, but Cake By The Ocean has just been discovered recently and everyone is loving it. This would definitely be the track to get the party started, so go ahead and add it to your playlist here!

4. ‘dRuNk’ by ZAYN

Zayn Malik gave us his incredible first solo album on the 25th March, which has been at the top of pretty much every chart for the past couple of weeks! This track is one that  is constantly mentioned about on Twitter by fans begging Zayn to release it as his next single, but you can check it out here and add it to the end of your playlist as it’s definitely one to be played on a midnight summer drive!

3. ‘When The Bassline Drops’ by Craig David feat. Big Narstie

Craig David made his big comeback earlier this year after appearing on the UK’s X Factor with Reggie and Bollie at the end of last year, and he definitely didn’t disappoint any of his old fans! This track is a great one to add to your summer playlist, with its’ brilliant bassline that you have to get up and bust a move to!

Add this track to your playlist here!

2. ‘Swim’ by Fickle Friends

This song is perfect to start off your party, as it’s got a chilled out vibe but still has an extremely catchy beat to the chorus which makes you clap along! If you haven’t heard of Fickle Friends before, make sure you check them out but also be sure to add this song to your playlist here!

1. ‘All My Friends’ by Snakehips, Tinashe, and Chance The Rapper

You have to include this song in your playlist, it might as well be a crime if you don’t! To end our playlist we have this brilliant track released a couple months ago by Snakehips which is the best way we can think of to end our perfect summer playlist. Go ahead and add it to yours here!
