Gather round, gather round, because the songs of the summer are finally here. The same way Taio Cruz's "Dynamite" immediately brings me back to camp, and Avicii's "Levels" to my freshman year of college, the tracks ahead will soon become synonymous with whatever antics you get yourself into in summer 2018. For most of us, that's hopefully a lot of parties. Rooftop parties, backyard parties, solo dance parties — it doesn't matter the venue, as long as you have the perfect music to get things going.
Finding the right playlist can be tricky, so we've taken the liberty of going through the songs you and your friends can't stop listening to right now and finding the perfect ones to kick off the summer and beyond.
Of course, there's Cardi B and Drake and Kanye, but we've also pulled out some more unexpected but equally catchy choices, like Kacey Musgrave's "High Horse" and, yes, the new song from the yodeling boy.
Ahead, check out all the best songs to keep you dancing this summer 2018.
