Summer 2014 is here. Every sunny day and warm evening should be accompanied by great music. Whether you’re car cruising, partying on the beach or chilling out at home, you’re going to need these 5 songs on your playlist. It’s summer, which means you’ll probably be hearing a lot of these tracks in months to come. But we’re here to give them to you first. Here’s five new songs you need in your playlist this week…
Michelle Williams featuring Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland – Say Yes
Michelle, Beyoncé and Kelly AKA, Destiny’s Child, have got together one more time for this super-summery track. Say Yes features three strong vocals by all girls on top of an uptempo beat. The gospel song that also passes as a club anthem is certainly one that will be blaring through a lot of people’s speakers this summer. And hey, it’s not everyday Michelle gets the lead vocal!
Nicki Minaj – Pills N Potions
Not only can Nicki Minaj rap, but she can also sing. We love that about Barbz. Nicki pours out her heart and soul in her latest, emotional track – Pills N Potions. The artist’s deep rap verses compliment the ballad’s heartfelt chorus. Pills N Potions is the first song lifted off Nicki’s upcoming album – The Pink Print. The hit is ideal for those long summer nights…
Lea Michele – On My Way
While many of Lea’s fans have already heard On My Way, those who haven’t should certainly add it to their list of summer party anthems. The club-banger deviates from the Glee star’s usual emotionally-charged songs. On My Wayis a bass-heavy, care-free track that will set you right in the mood for nothing but summer fun.
Mariah Carey – Thirsty
After releasing the ballad, You’re Mine (and a hundred others), it appears Mariah got a little bit Thirsty for some hip-hop. The slick new track from the powerhouse diva is a treat for R&B fans. It’s good but it’s not great. Let’s face it, we’ll never get Mariah from the ’90s back ever again.
Robin Thicke – Get Her Back
Robin Thicke is no longer the manly man we knew from Blurred Lines. The singer has recently split up from his wife, Paula Patton and he’s doing his very best to get her back and show his emotional side. The melancholic and relaxing song shifts from Thicke’s usual, upbeat and groovy tracks. It’s one that’ll get you all sentimental this summer…
