This one needs no explanation as to why it’s on our playlist, but we’ll give it to you anyways! Lizzo is the queen of summer bops. “Truth Hurts” and “Good as Hell” were our soundtracks to previous summers, so we’re not surprised that her newest hit would leave us in a sunshine filled mood! This song makes you feel good and want to groove, two summertime necessities!

Imagine you’re driving on a sunny day with the windows rolled down, and you and your best friends are screaming the chorus to this absolutely amazing song! Every season needs a heartbreak anthem, and this song is it!

“It’s Givin” by Latto

Puth is a musical genius, and this song proves it again. We love this song, especially for summer! It’s the perfect tempo and rhythm. It’s upbeat yet chill at the same time!

It’s perfect to play in the background for any summer activity. Plus, listening to “Vegas” on repeat means you’ll be ready for the song when “Elvis” comes out in theaters on June 24th!

The guitar intro mixed with the raspy voice gets you automatically hyped up, and the rest of the song follows the exciting and dangerous feeling vibe. It’s also a big confidence booster and the perfect song to jam out to before hitting the town with your friends!

Taking a softer approach, Styles’ nostalgic melody is perfect for summer time. It’s the best song to listen to while relaxing by the pool or sitting by a campfire. The lyrics are easy to catch on to, and its calming vibe instantly fills you with a sentimental feeling about your own childhood summers.

We just want to get up and dance when we hear this song. It’s guaranteed to lift the energy of the room up. Summer is about having fun and enjoying the moment which is exactly what the artists accomplish through this song!

“N95” by Kendrick Lamar

Lamar is in his comeback era, and we’re excited for it! This song came out right in time for everyone to enjoy it through the next couple of months.

“Late Night Talking” Harry Styles

Styles makes the list again because this song is so different from his others. The upbeat, jazzy tone is everything we need for summer.

“Heatwaves” by Glass Animal

Even the title itself is perfect for your summer playlist! Taking a swim in the pool or laying out on the beach? You’ll be completely relaxed and feel stress free. Or if you’re stuck inside, this song will still give you all those beachy feels!
