This is a bop ladies! Even if you haven't just gotten your heart broken by a stupid boy, this song will make you feel like you can take over the world. Lizzo is coming up the music scene and I'm not mad about it.

"I just took a DNA test, turns out I'm 100% that b*tch
Even when I'm crying crazy
Yeah, I got boy problems, that's the human in me
Bling bling, then I solve 'em, that's the goddess in me"

2. I'm On A Roll by Ashley O (Miley Cyrus)

Miley's new Netflix episode of Black Mirror had people a little spooked while also jamming in their seats. The songs she performed as her ulterego (no, not Hannah Montana) Ashley O were so iconic and empowering that you almost have to dance to them. Yeah, maybe the song was a cry for help in the show, but the beat is uplifting and anything Miley is incredible.

"Yeah, I can't take it, so don't you fake it
I know your love's my destiny
Yeah, I can't take it, please demonstrate it
'Cause I'm going down in history
Hey, yeah, whoa-ho, I'm on a roll
Ridin' so high, achieving my goals"
- Ashley O

3. Only Human by The Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers are back, I repeat, they are back! This is BIG news for all of us Camp Rock and Burnin' Up lovers. Their new album is full of hits, but this song gives you those summer, chill vibes.

"It's only human, you know that it's real
So why would you fight or try to deny the way that you feel?
Oh, babe, you can't fool me, your body's got other plans
So stop pretending you're shy, just come on and
Dance, dance, dance, dance, oh"
- Jonas Brothers

4. Movements by Pham (feat. Yung Fusion)

Okay, this is a little bit of a throwback but a song you must listen to at the gym. If you are running on the treadmill or are just trying to put in a little extra body werk this week, this song will have you running to the beat and burning those calories.

"She crazy she got it she got it on all on me
The road is wide open and calling
I flow like a Lambo my boo is a Bugatti"
- Pham

5. Enjoy Your Life by Marina

Marina has left the diamonds behind and produced a piece of art this past year. This song really makes the stressors disappear, trust me. Just enjoy your life, girl!

"Sun comes up
Your eyes they see clear
Take one breath
Your worries start to disappear
Looking to the future never seem to make you happy
Took you from reality, yeah, yeah
" - Marina

6. Before I Let Go by Beyoncé

Remember when Beyonce just randomly dropped a new album this year and it was all live and incredible? Yeah, me too. This is one of the best on the album ... no debate.

"And I really love you
You should know
I wanna make sure I'm right, boy
Before I let go"
- Beyonce

7. Love U Better by Victória Monét

Victória Monét is on the rise and I am so happy about that. Her music is incedible. You may know her best as Ariana Grande's bestie and songwriter, but she also has created music of her own. This song is one that will make you feel like a goddess. Stand down, peasants.

"Making love is a specialty
Gotta make you feel like a billion bucks, that's the recipe
And I got it down to a science, it's in the chemistry
So I'm gonna make it last for a couple infinities, infinities"
- Victória Monét

8. Weekend Friend by Goth Babe

This is an underrated song and I am not sure why. If you need a carefree summer song that you can blast with your windows down, driving and sipping an iced coffee with some friends, this is THE one.

"Darling, what you waiting there for?
I got you alone, but I don't wanna go
And darling, what you waiting there for?
I got you alone, but I don't really know"
- Goth Babe

9. Happy And Sad by Kacey Musgraves

Listen, I do not like country music. Unpopular opinion, but I have never been a fan. Until, I listened to the country pop queen that is Kacey Musgraves. This song is more on the emotional side, but will have you singing along over and over again.

"And I'm the kind of person who starts getting kinda nervous
When I'm having the time of my life"
- Kacey Musgraves

10. Coachella by lovelytheband

While Coachella season has sadly passed, there are festivals all summer long. This song is incredible and will make youfeel like you're wearing a flower crown and dancing in the middle of the dessert.

"In your head it's Coachella every weekend
Free spirits and flowers on your head
I love the way that you laughed with me
I miss the way that you laughed with me"
- lovelytheband

11. Kill The Lights by Alex Newell, Jess Glynne, and DJ Cassidy (feat. Nile Rodgers) (Audien Remix)

If you need a song that doesn't have many lyrics, but is so upbeat and heavy that your heart feels like its beating out of your chest, this is the one. Put on your headphones and turn that volume all the way to the right. This will bring you back to your frat house days – you're welcome.

"Oh, no, don't run away from your life
No, no, don't turn away from the heart and the proof
From the way that we move,
Kill the lights, we can't lose!"
- Alex Newell, Jess Glynne, and DJ Cassidy

12. Starships by Nicki Minaj

Now this is a throwback. If you forgot about this anthem, you won't now.

"Starships were meant to fly
Hands up and touch the sky
Can't stop 'cause we're so high
Let's do this one more time"
- Nicki Minaj

13. Too Good by Drake (feat. Rihanna)

Another queen, Rihanna took this song to the next level. It is so good and the entire album that came out in 2016 slaps.

"I don't know how to talk to you
I don't know how to ask you if you're okay
My friends always feel the need to tell me things
Seems like they're just happier than us these days"
- Drake (feat. Rihanna)

14. 7 Rings Remix by Ariana Grande (feat. 2 Chainz)

Okay, we all know 7 Rings goes hard. Grande's latest album is for the girls who put in work! The remix is almost as perfect as the original, so I thought it was a must add to your playlist.

"My wrist, stop watchin', my neck is flossin'
Make big deposits, my gloss is poppin'
You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it
I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (Yeah)"
- Ariana Grande (feat. 2 Chainz)

15. Wish U The Best by blackbear (feat. Stalking Gia)

Last but not least, this song is also underrated. Blackbear is so good and his music just makes you want to dance. Happy listening!

"Just used my last one percent to text you, that sh*t wasn't worth it
LAX to JFK, I probably miss on purpose
Funny how when I don't care, these feelings all resurface
2016 was catastrophic, I deserved it"
- blackbear (feat. Stalking Gia)
