I have handpicked ten songs that will add a splash of sonic sunshine to your summer. So, grab your sunglasses, turn up the volume, and get ready to groove to the rhythms of the hottest season of the year.

“I’m working late ’cause I’m a singer” that line has been stuck on everybody’s head lately. There’s something so sweet (or, should I say bitter?) about this song that makes it extremely addicting. The fast and upbeat tempo make it a perfect song to energize your summer days.

2. "Training Season" by Dua Lipa

Radical Optimism, in its entirety, is perfect for the summer but this song stands out to me. The production on this song is *chef’s kiss*. The catchy guitar loops and synths captivate your soul and transport it somewhere else. There’s something about her songs that I just can’t get enough of them.

3. "To The Moon" by Meghan Trainor

Meghan Trainor is back with yet another hit. This song has all the elements that make her songs unique and incredibly catchy, however, this one features an electronic chorus. The chorus differentiates it from anything else she has previously released and makes it incredibly refreshing.

Tate McRae is here to show us that pop girls are BACK. This song is inspired by the early 2000s pop music and we’re here for it. “Exes” is playful, catchy and extremely addicting. Overall, it’s a certified bop that you need in your summer playlist.

8. "Texas Hold 'Em" by Beyoncé

Although this is a different sound than what we’re used to coming from her, Beyoncé still delivers with this song. “TEXAS HOLD ‘EM” will make you want to get on your feet and groove to it. It is playful and refreshing AKA perfect for the summer.

9. "Wanna Be" by GloRilla ft. Megan Thee Stallion

This song is a little bit different than the rest of the songs on this playlist, however, it’s still a great song for the summer. GloRilla‘s chemistry with Megan Thee Stallion is extremely palpable in this track. The song has a fun energy that will elevate your summer parties.

10. "Party In The U.S.A." by Miley Cyrus
