The year of 2016 was a tough one for the music industry and the fans alike. Our hearts are still heavy and are trying to process the fact that we lost so many legendary musicians in one year. Nonetheless, 2016 gave us a lot of moments to be happy about! Like when Queen Beyonce dropped her Lemonade in April or when we got a chance to enjoy more incredible material from the beloved David Bowie. It feels like the past year was filled with a celebration of life, good music, dancing, and new discoveries! Do you agree with us? Here are our top ten tracks of 2016.
10. One Dance by Drake
The smash track from the summer of 2016 hit us hard and we do not want to let it go. Drake has come a long way since his days on Degrassi: The Next Generation. This Canadian rapper is making all the headlines while producing some quality music – a perfect combo!
9. This Girl by Kungs vs Cookin’ on 3 Burners
Now, if you are not dancing already just by reading this title – listen to this hit ASAP! The song is a remix of an original funk song with some drop dead beat and unforgettable trumpet parts. This Girl went Gold in the United States, Platinum in the UK, and double Platinum in Sweden.
8. Starboy by The Weeknd ft Daft Punk
Ah, The Weeknd is always keeping us entertained. His creation Starboy hit the charts September 2016. The song is a dark take on two sides of celebrity life. Shortly after the release, the public was made aware of an upcoming album which was scheduled for November of the same year and it did not disappoint.
7. Lost on You by LP
Thank you 2016 for amazing LP and her great hit song Lost on You!
