Summer flew by this year; we have hung out with friends, vacationed with family and relaxed. One thing that most of us did constantly was listen to music whether be in the car, on your IPOD or at a party. Here are 5 songs that were on repeat for many this past summer.
1. Rick Ross – B.M.F (Blowing Money Fast) – This song has become one of the year’s most popular summer anthems. First appearing on Ross’ Albert Anastasia mix tape, the overwhelming response caused Rick Ross to put the song on his Teflon Don album. Constant radio play and a mainstay in the clubs prove Ross has a winner on his hands.
2. Deuces – Chris Brown and Tyga feat. Kevin McCall: Since the incident with Rihanna a year ago, Chris Brown hasn’t been very well liked with poor album sales and countries refusing to let him perform. Things seem to be improving for Brown with his notable performance at the BET awards and the release of his second mix tape. The second tape was a collaboration with Young Money Entertainment’s Tyga and has proved to be a success with the hit single “Deuces”. A video was released and the song is steadily rising on the Billboard charts.
3. Find Your Love – Drake: This hip hop sensation took a different approach on his second single that was originally intended for Beyonce. Those who are long time fans of Drake know that he has no problem alternating between singing and rapping on tracks. Guys have no problem listening to this song and the girls imagine that Drake is singing to them.
4. Your Love – Nicki Minaj: The unfinished version of this song leaked months ago and received a ton of airplay prompting Minaj to master the track and release as an official single. The video was recently released and the song is currently spending another week on top of the rap charts proving that Ms. Minaj has a massive hit on her hands.
5. Bottoms Up – Trey Songz feat. Nicki Minaj: Nicki Minaj makes another appearance on this list just as she makes appearances on a number of summer anthems this year. Although this song was only recently released, Trey Songz seems to have another club banger on his hand. Encouraging listeners to raise their glasses while having a good time, its infectious beat proves to be a winner for club goers.
Other notables: Lose My Mind, Hold Yuh (Remix) and Hello, Good Morning.
