We've compiled some of our favourite songs for the summer that are sure to get you up and dancing!

 

 

1. Hello - Martin Solveig & Dragonette

Album Cover - Blanco y Negro Records

 A little bit of a throwback, Martin Solveig and Canadian synthetic pop group Dragonette worked their magic on this bop of a single-- we haven't stopped dancing since! 

 

 

 

2. Closer (feat. Jennie A.) - Lemaitre

Album Cover - Astralwerks

A hidden gem, Closer makes us feel like we're ready to work the runway. We adore Norwegian indie duo Lemaitre, and have always made sure to include them on our dance party playlists!

 

 

 

3. Tightrope (feat. Big Boi) - Janelle Monáe

Album Cover - Bad Boy Records/Wondaland Arts Society

For any summer playlist, Janelle Monáe is a must. We love this singer, rapper, songwriter, actress (seriously-- what can't she do?) not only for her talent but her passion for giving back to her community.

 

 

 

4. Valerie - Mark Ronson featuring Amy Winehouse

Album Cover - Allido Records and Columbia Records

Anything Amy gets our toes tapping and fingers snapping. This iconic cover of the original song, Valerie by the Zutons captures Amy Winehouse's jaw-dropping vocals paired with a beat that will get you dancing. 

 

 

 

5. The Love Club - Lorde

Album Cover - Universal Music NZ

When she was just 17 years old, Lorde put out this amazing EP. Her voice blows us away and she's received 2 Grammy's to prove it. We love her empowering messages of self-love and confidence-- you go, girl!

 

 

 

6. Hey Soul Sister - Train

Album Cover - Columbia Records

This feel-good song has us feeling easy breezy. Combined with a sing-song melody from the ukulele, its no wonder this song was the top-selling single in 2010.

 

 

 

7. Love On Top - Beyoncé

Album Cover - Columbia Records

We are always down for a Queen Bey dance party. An oldie but a goodie, Love On Top combines an eighties groove with some modern pop flare and a catchy tune. We love it!

 

 

 

8. Better - Khalid

Album Cover - RCA Records

Recent new artist Khalid has come out with several Billboard #1 Hits, including this new release that gives us those summertime vibes. Accumulating a total of 5 Grammy's since the start of his career, Khalid's soulful and fun R&B jams are guaranteed to put you in a good mood.

 

 

 

9. Electric Feel - MGMT

Album Cover - Columbia Records

This one is an all-time classic. A world-renounced banger, Electric Feel gets us in our feels. We love reliving the early 2000s by breaking it down to this groovy tune. 

 

 

 

10. Crabbuckit - K-OS

Album Cover - Astralwerks

Canadian rapper K-OS released this iconic tune in 2004 about shaking the crabs off and remaining positive. We love this catchy beat and dancing along to this timeless tune.

 

 

 

 

We hope these songs get you moving and grooving in this gorgeous June weather-- share your next dance party with us tagging @drinkwelo or @welokids!
