The best songs of 2018 will help you escape existential dread.
2018 has already given us so many musical gems that you will cherish until the end of time!
1. “No Tears Left to Cry” by Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande waded back into the music scene after a long AF break, and obviously, she returned with a bop for the ages. “No Tears Left to Cry” is all about picking yourself up, dusting yourself off, and having a good time. Plus, it’s the perfect song to blast when you hit the dance floor!
2. “Let Me” by Zayn Malik
In the follow-up to his hit with Sia “From Dusk ’Til Dawn,” Zayn is practically begging you to let him love you. You’ll be convinced by the time you get to the 0:02 mark, for sure.
3. “In My Blood” by Shawn Mendes
If you need a new anthem to get you in the mood to slay at your basketball game or ace that calculus exam, Shawn Mendes’ “In My Blood” is the perfect song to perk you up. It’s all about shaking off any feelings of inadequacy and moving forward because quitting just isn’t in your blood!
4. “Finesse (Remix)” by Bruno Mars ft. Cardi B
Bruno Mars + Cardi B = the most epic dance floor anthem since “Uptown Funk” with the added bonus of filling you with so much confidence that you’ll totally be able to go up to your crush and ask them to dance.
5. “God’s Plan” by Drake
Sometimes, it feels like some people want you to fail when they see you doing amazing things. Well, whenever you’re getting those vibes from people, just put on this track, because it’s all about success in the face of your haters.
6. “The Middle” by Zedd ft. Maren Morris
Zedd and Maren Morris really outdid themselves with this track. It may be about a couple who’s in an argument asking one another to compromise so they can get along, but when you hear it come on at the party, you’ll just be sending your besties the signals to meet you in ~the middle~ of the dance floor.
7. “Be Careful” by Cardi B
Cardi B showed her vulnerable side on this track all about telling the person you love to be careful about how they treat you because you know exactly how much you’re worth.
8. “For You” by Liam Payne & Rita Ora
Liam Payne is the second One Direction member to make a song for the 50 Shades series behind Zayn. He collaborated with Rita Ora on the track and it’s all types of sexy!
9. “If You Leave Me Now” by Charlie Puth & Boyz II Men
Charlie Puth gave his fans this track as a consolation prize when he announced his album was being pushed back because he needed more time to make it perfect. But, like, can we have this track AND your album on time? Is that really too much to ask?
10. “Filthy” by Justin Timberlake
What can I say about this *NSYNC alum? He never disappoints no matter how long of a break he takes from dropping music. NEVER.
