Yes, summer has come to an end. Yes, it is now October. No, it does not mean you have to drop your amazing summer playlist. Typically, songs of the autumn season are a little more chill and relaxing. In order to not forget our favorite summer jams, here is a list of summer 2019’s best bops.
- Dancing with a Stranger – Sam Smith ft. Normani click here
Sam Smith never fails to give us a great song to dance, scream, or even cry to. But recently, Smith has started to release more upbeat, electro-pop singles and honestly, I’m here for it. And, Normani is in it, which makes the song even better.
“Can we just talllllk!?” This is not Khalid’s first summer hit, but it is a good one. The song is off his album, “Free Spirit”, and he sings about a relationship that is moving too quick and frankly, he just wants to talk.
- Borderline – Tame Impala click here
So many good vibes in this song. This song is on the list because this was my top favorite song this summer. If you haven’t heard it yet, click the link here. You won’t regret it.
- Break up with your Girlfriend, I’m Bored – Ariana Grande click here
Okay, so I might be a little biased because I love Ariana Grande, but it was a big hit this summer. Don’t even get me started about that background beat. 10/10 recommend dancing to this one.
- Sunflower – Post Malone, Swae Lee click here
Never fails to impress us. Post Malone knows how to make an amazing hit for all his listeners to love. This song is very different from his usual rockstar flow. Its very upbeat and bubbly. Swae Lee, who is ½ of the rap duo, Rae Sremmurd, is also featured in this hit. Their voices mesh so well together because they have that smooth but raspy tone.
- Bad Guy – Billie Eilish click here
This song is so catchy and that is probably the reason why it has been so successful this summer. After being on the charts for 19 weeks, “Bad Guy” surpassed Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” on Billboard’s Hot 100 taking that number one spot. Pretty impressive.
- Truth Hurts – Lizzo click here
This is such a power girl anthem, I love it. Every lyric has such a “I’m that girl” feel to it. Lizzo doesn’t need any man to hold her down and she is making that clear to the world. She also wants her listeners to know that they don’t need anyone to hold them down either. The song basically says how its okay to be single, and you should love it. Hang with your girls, do what makes you happy, and don’t listen to anyone who tells you otherwise.
- Senorita – Shawn Mendes ft. Camila Cabello click here
Hearing Shawn Mendes sing, “Land in Miami”, made me instantly fall in love with this song because I am a Miami girl after all. Personally, I have been waiting for another Shawn and Camila collab, as if “I Know What You Did Last Summer” wasn’t enough. This song is a perfect mix between chill and salsa dancing. Perfect for every mood.
- Sucker – Jonas Brothers click here
Third grade me is fangirling. When I heard that the Jonas Brothers got back together, I made sure to listen to their hit right away. This song just screams summer to me. You can imagine yourself headed to the beach, driving with the windows down and jamming out to this song the whole way there. And, not only did they just come out with a song, they gave us a whole album and a tour! So, thank you to the JoBros for making our dreams come true.
- Old Town Road – Lil Nas X click here
The funny about this song is that it gained popularity through teenagers dancing to it on TikTok, and I being a TikTok addict, love this song. I started to hear more of this song when Lil Nas X collaborated with Billy Ray Cyrus, bringing me back to my Hannah Montana phase. This song made its way to becoming the number one song on Billboard’s hot 100 for a cool 19 weeks. 19 weeks! That’s until our number 5, “Bad Guy”, finally took its place. Though this song is pretty old news now, it is still a bop and he has since come out with many more songs as the summer went on.
Now that you have read this list and reminisced your summer memories, I guess it is safe to move on to Autumn and get into those spooky Halloween playlists and start planning your costumes.
