As summertime approaches, beach days, BBQs, and other parties will be in full effect. Whether you’re safely hosting these gatherings or have been given the aux, making the perfect summer playlist is crucial to curating a good time. While there are some classics from seasons ago that will truly never get old, we’ve compiled a list of the latest bangers that we know are sure to get you your besties to break out your best dance moves. Plus, you're due for some "revenge" after losing out on last Summer. Let's make this the best one yet with our playlist below!
1. Hot Girl Summer - Megan Thee Stallion
Who gon’ handle you?! Nobody, babe. We’re crowning this as Summer’s official anthem, courtesy of our NovaBabe and Hot Girl Coach Megan Thee Stallion. Keep it lit with this one on repeat!
2. Best Friend - Saweetie feat. Doja Cat
Grab ur bestie, hop in a Tessie, and turn ALL the way up. For those without a whip, a Lyft works just fine too, but just make sure they pass you the AUX cord.
3. Kiss Me More - Doja Cat feat. SZA
A fun, flirty bop that personifies everything there is to love about a casual, Summer fling.
4. Act Up - City Girls
Need we say more? Act up and get on your baddest behavior, NovaBabes.
5. Peaches - Justin Bieber feat. Giveon & Daniel Caesar
With a hook this catchy, it’s no wonder JB’s latest hit took over social media and never looked back. This will definitely set the vibe at your next beach party or backyard BBQ!
6. Up - Cardi B
If it’s up, then it’s stuck… in your head! Between Cardi’s fun, TikTok-approved dance number and always audacious lyrics, it’s highly likely that you’ll run this one back more than once.
7. Buss It - Erica Banks
This viral hit had you bussin’ it all during quarantine. Now, let’s take those moves to the beach, shall we?
8. 34+35 - Ariana Grande
Ok, we have to admit: this track might be better suited for your next baecation rather than a girls’ trip once you actually take a second to check Ari’s math. LOL, just saying!
9. Levitating - Dua Lipa feat. DaBaby
Picture yourself poolside with a delicious cocktail and basking in the hot sun in your hottest little black bikini. Yeah, you’ll be levitating for sure.
10. The Woo - Pop Smoke feat. 50 Cent & Roddy Rich
The Woo makes it easy to embrace the sounds of summer with the late Pop Smoke’s gritty, NYC voice smoothly serenading you over a club-ready beat & acoustic guitar melody. It’s lit!
11. What’s Next - Drake
Drake makes nothing but hits! So, naturally, What’s Next is another certified banger added to our list. Except you won’t be resting like he did all Summer.
12. Roses (Imanbek Remix) - by SAINt JHN
The beat is infectious, and the lyrics are practically begging you to, “turn up baby, turn up.” Go on and have yourself some fun twerking it out to this one.
13. Good Days - SZA
SZA crafted this beautiful song to remind us that every day feels like a good day in the Summer, right? Right. Cheers!
