Who do you most like hearing on the radio? Are they world-famous or underground? Whoever it may be, they give your hearing senses a good feeling that just sounds right. There are too many artists in the world to name, but we have that one that stands out to us, along with that one song as well.
In the summer of 2012 Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” topped the charts and was a worldwide sensation as we all know. Number two on the list was “Payphone” by Maroon 5, who over the years, has always had great music. Finally at number three was “Somebody That I Used To Know” by Gotye.
In 2011 the number one summer jam was, “Give Me Everything” by Pitbull who is a worldwide celebrity and known for making billboard hits. Number two was the very popular “Party Rock Anthem” by the very outgoing group, LMFAO. At number three came Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” which brought Adele to the stardom she’s at today.
Going back three years to 2010 the top summer jam was “California Girls” by Katy Perry who is a global icon. “Airplanes” by B.o.B came in second, followed by “OMG” by Usher, who knows how to get to the top of pop charts.
Music has changed a lot since then and so have people. Not everyone likes the same type of music, everyone has their own taste and outlook on it.
In July of this upcoming summer, Skylar Grey will release her new album “Don’t Look Down,” which will include the single “Dance Without You.”
Also released in July was the album, “X,” by Chris Brown which includes the hit single “Fine China.” Another hip-hop artist, Pusha T will release his new album, “My Name Is My Name,” with the single featuring Kanye West and Chief Keef “Numbers on the Boards.”
There are the right places and times for a specific song. If you just got into a breakup with your partner, T Swift is the way to go. If you are upset at your boyfriend, women can seem to relate to Pink. If you just want to kick back with your friends some Kid Cudi, Kendrick Lamar, and ASAP Rocky all have good songs to listen to. If you want to get a workout in, some rock or heavy metal will suit your needs. If you’re just feeling happy and want music that will fit into that “Hey Ya,” by Andre 3000 will never get old.
