Top 100 Songs of 2016 (60-41)

It’s day 3, so you know the drill by now!

60. Fix by Chris Lane

It’s been an off year for country music, but Chris Lane has been one of the bright lights in the industry. Fix has dominated country radio and for good reason.

59. Future Pt 2 by DJ Snake ft. Bipolar Sunshine

From the awesome album that is EncoreFuture Pt 2 is incredibly underrated. The drop itself is worth listening to on its own.

58. Zaddy by Ty Dolla $ign

If you’re not convinced by Ty Dolla $ign’s original music and think he’s only good for features, you need to listen to Zaddy. The way Ty croons over the beat is one of a kind.

57. Pop Style by Drake ft. The Throne

If you were like me, when this dropped right before Views you were thinking Drake was going to put out the best rap album in history. He not only dropped the ball on the album, but taking out Kanye’s verse on the album. One of the top rap songs of the year.

56. I Wanna Know by Alesso ft. Nico & Vinz

Alesso absolutely killed it on his single from earlier this spring. He keeps the mellow vibe throughout the song and has sweet vocals from Nico & Vinz.

55. Keeping Your Head Up by Birdy

Birdy has one of the most powerful voices in music. While you may know the Don Diablo remix better, the original is even better!

54. This Is What You Came For by Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna

One of the top radio songs of the year, Calvin Harris continues to show his versatility in the EDM world with the transition from club music to radio friendly music.

53. Let Me Love You by Dastic ft. Cade

Remember that song in 2004 by that guy named Mario… Dastic gives the smash hit new life with a tropical beat and smooth vocals from Cade.

52. No Money by Galantis

Galantis’ original music is incredible. No Money is everything Galantis does best: catchy hook, good build and a fabulous drop.

51. Panda by Desiigner

Does it matter that you can’t understand what Desiigner is saying? Not really when you know he’s got broads in Atlanta!

50. Gone by Afrojack ft. Ty Dolla $ign

Afrojack goes mellow with his collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign. It’s not used to what we’re seeing from him, but it works in a really good way.

49. Animal Spirits by Vulfpeck

It’s just really catchy. I don’t know what more to say, but Vulfpeck continues to put out really good music consistently.

48. Go Flex by Post Malone

The Stoner’s anthem of 2016, Go Flex is Post Malone’s peak as an artist so far. It’s tough to put the song in a particular genre, which is part of the genius of the song itself.

47. Phone Down by Lost Kings ft. Emily Warren

Talk about a fitting song for 2016, Phone Down is definitely a generational song. Yet despite the somber tone of the song, Lost Kings manage to make it still somewhat happy. ]

46. Penthouse Floor by John Legend ft. Chance the Rapper

Chance’s verse is so bizarre it’s fantastic. John Legend does what he does best and sing incredible, romantic lyrics.

45. In My Foreign by The Americanos ft. Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty, Nicky Jam & French Montana

Sampling the classic “Saturday In The Park” by Chicago, French Montana shows that he can continue to deliver solid verses, but we know the star of this one. Lil Yachty’s autotune is just an awesome way to have a bridge.

44. The Sound by The 1975

This song builds like no other. The same piano lick sounds better and better as the song moves forward.

43. Real Friends by Kanye West ft. Ty Dolla $ign

There’s been a lot of Ty Dolla $ign on the countdown because he just adds so much to each song he’s on. Ty and Kanye weave in and out of each others verses, which just makes the song so powerful.

42. Heading Home by Gryffin ft. Josef Salvat

Heading Home is incredibly haunting. Salvat’s voice echoing throughout the drop is beautiful to listen to.

41. Bounce Back by Big Sean

Big Sean goes solo for this one, which allows him to flex his chops to his fullest extent. People have often called him a gimmick rapper, but Bounce Back shows that he is one of the top rappers in the game.
