Cara’s best know for her track “Here,” which speaks to her independent nature. Wouldn’t ya know it, “Wild Things” rocks to a similar beat.

Meghan Trainor, “NO”

A former YouTube sensation, Trainor appears poised to maintain celeb status after dropping her second studio album, Thank You.

Martin Garrix, “Animals”

By now “Animals” has embraced its role as a sure-fire party starter, but have you seen the video?

Pierce the Veil, “Dive In”

Here’s a personal favorite from the San Diego natives latest album, Misadventures.

Chance the Rapper ft. Kanye West & Chicago’s Children Choir, “All We Got”

This one’s off of Coloring Book, Chance’s third mixtape of his young career. It’s got features such as Lil Wayne, 2Chainz, and Yeezy himself.

The Easybeats, “Friday On My Mind”

Is the constant thought of wanting it to be Friday obsessive? No need to be alarmed. This track is proof that our Fridays have been coveted since at least the 60s.
