Hit the jump for Your Summer 2014 Music Playlist…
Sia – Chandelier – We already called it the song of the year. And we mean it. This is one of the best pop songs to come around in a long, long time. And you can’t miss the classic video.
Iggy Azalea (ft Charli XCX) – Fancy – This inescapable song brought most of the world Iggy Azalea for the first time. The Aussie, white, female rapper sounds like a joke on paper, but proves the haters wrong and delivers one of the catchiest Pop / Hip-Hop tracks since ‘Happy’.
Sam Smith- Stay With Me – If you close your eyes and imagine a male Adele, you’ve got Sam Smith and this gorgeous ballad.
Chromeo – Jealous (I Ain’t With It) – The Canadian dance duo turn in a glorious pure pop dance gem.
Jhene Aiko – The Worst – Slinky, smooth electro R&B.
Kiesza – Hideaway – A great throwback to sparse dance pop songs of the 90’s. The video is absolutely killer…and was shot in one take.
Calvin Harris – Summer – What 2014 Summer Playlist would be complete without the dance boy of summer himself’s track ‘Summer’. We dare you to try NOT playing this all Summer.
MAGIC! – Rude – We will ignore the obvious that if her parents don’t want you to marry her, there’s probably a good reason…and do you really think it’s a good idea to commit the rest of your life to her and her family? In any event, this song is an ear worm! BEWARE!
Clean Bandit – Rather Be – This is a slice of pure dance pop pie. Taste it!
Usher – Good Kisser – We’re not entirely sure, but we don’t think he’s talking about kissing on the lips here. In any event, this marks a bit of a departure from Usher’s usual club jams and takes it down a notch…but the results are just as fantastic.
Coldplay – A Sky Full of Stars – This is a very interesting track for Coldplay. It plays like a remix of one of their songs…which makes sense since it was produced by Avicii…and the result is pure heaven.
Wisin (featuring Ricky Martin & Jennifer Lopez) – Adrenalina – We have absolutely NO clue what they’re saying but this song is
Kylie Minogue – Sexercize – Ummm wow. This song makes something happen in our pants…and the video does even more.
Ed Sheeran – Sing – This typically, acoustic(y) singer / songwriter gets an upgrade via Pharrell who produced the song.
Robyn & Royksopp – Do It Again – Robyn can do no wrong. No, seriously, she has never released a song that wasn’t high quality dance pop. This collaboration with Royksopp is no exception.
MNEK – Every Little Word – A curious mix of pop, dance, R&B but in the strangest – and most creative – and most glorious way – possible.
Mike Posner – My Light – It’s been far too long since Mike Posner’s last album. This single from his upcoming album Pages continues to prove that he is one of the most under rated artists working today.
Sam Hunt – House Party – This former college football player went from being a free agent for the Kansas City Chiefs to writing Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over” before releasing his own work. Slightly country, mostly swagger.
Disclosure (ft Sam Smith) – Latch – With vocals by Sam Smith, Disclosure, the British garage house act debuts their first single and it is delicious.
Flume – Holdin On – A relatively creepy, dance song…but trust us, it works.
Mr. Probz – Waves – This track is a chilled out jam that is bound to get stuck into your head.
