  • Drunk In Love - Beyoncé

    Drunk In Love - Beyoncé

    Beyonce’s latest album, released last December with no advanced promotion, is still receiving regular play on our stereos. "Drunk in Love," one of two singles that were initially released along with accompanying videos, was a great introduction to the self-titled album. This song showed a sexier side to both the pop mogul herself and her marriage to Jay-Z, who is also featured in the hit. The simple black-and-white music video, filmed on a Florida beach, is a perfect complement to the song.

    Turn Down for What – Lil Jon, DJ Snake

    Although released late in 2013, this single received airplay well into this year. The infectious beat and simple chorus ensured it got stuck in your head every time you listened. You might want to skip the NSFW video and just enjoy the audio. Perfect for summer mixes for years to come.

    Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

    One of the singles to be released in advance of The Pinkprint album, this summertime release was an immediate success. With a super sexy and playful video showing Minaj chilling with a gaggle of babes in a on a jungle-themed set to the "Baby Got Back" sample, this song had hit written all over it.

  • Boom Clap - Charli XCX

    Boom Clap - Charli XCX

    This single from Brit siren Charli XCX is another great club song from the singer. You might know her from the hit she wrote for Icona Pop, "I Don’t Care." But this song shows XCX is a force to be reckoned with. We look forward to seeing what she releases in 2015.

  • Blank Space - Taylor Swift

    Blank Space - Taylor Swift

    This song is one that fits into the theme "The Year of the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" (other contenders includes songs by Iggy Azalea and FKA Twigs.) One of the best hits of Swift’s new album, the over-the-top video lends itself to being watched on repeat.

  • Do It Again – Royksopp and Robyn

    Do It Again – Royksopp and Robyn

    This dance song by Norwegian electronic duo Royksopp and Swedish pop star Robyn perfectly blend her hit sensibilities with the EDM craze. Easy to bounce along to, this is one of the best tracks from the EP the pair released this summer.

    Two Weeks - FKA Twigs

    British recording artist FKA Twigs gained a lot of recognition this year, in part due to the critical reception of this song. The track is slow, sensual and beautifully highlights the singer’s vocal range.

  • Love Me Harder - Ariana Grande

    Love Me Harder - Ariana Grande

    One of several songs by Grande to grace the top of the charts this year, this single is by far the greatest. Featuring The Weeknd on vocals, this simple R&B jam is both light and dark at the same time. The video is forgettable but the track is worth more than a few listens.

  • 0 to 100/The Catch Up – Drake

    0 to 100/The Catch Up – Drake

    Originally released on SoundCloud, this simple rap hit follows in the harder direction Drake is taking. Nominated for a Grammy, this song’s beat is reminiscent of "Worst Behavior," another recent Drake banger.
