As we reach the midway point of 2018, it’s fair to say we’ve been spoiled with a lot of great songs this year.
It is safe to say that It's never too early to find good music.
Here my picks for the best songs released in 2018 — so far.
1. Drake- Nice for What
There is no doubt that Drake is having a hell of a year. He’s only released three songs, but all of them have been absolute bangers.
Prepare to play this song at every single one of your pre-games. It's a certified head-banger
2. Cardi B - Thru Your Phone
Considered as an brilliant debut album, Invasion of Privacy
Cardi B shows off her sultry side, Its 12th track, "Thru Your phone," is that slow jam you blast on-repeat when your S.O. is quickly about to become your ex.
It's kind of a love ballad which is dedicated to
Soccer Mommy - Cool
Soccer Mommy can make our deepest self-doubts seem so much more universal.
This song reminds us of that one person who breaks hearts, the one who got stoned, the one who was so effortlessly cool and was the envy of everyone in school. It’s the story of insecurity and obsession that transcends the teen drama of Soccer Mommy’s “Cool.” And, in a way, it’s comforting to know that you’re not alone in silently judging and coveting someone’s life
5. Selena Gomez - Back to You
Back to You" is any indication of what's coming from Gomez, after an long-overhaul for a new album (she hasn't released one since 2015), expect her to bring all the summer jams and more.
There is no doubt that the Scottish DJ Calvin Harris is a hit-making machine, working this time with pop star Dua Lipa to deliver a summer jam of clubby ’90s beats and smooth vocals.
7. Ariana Grande - No Tears Left to Cry
Pop diva Ariana Grande chose a title that appears maudlin on first glance. You can almost hear the syrupy strings when you read the words. . She wears her pain like armor here.
8. The Weeknd - Wasted Times
Oh, you thought the Weeknd was over Bella Hadid? Even though the pair broke up in 2016, he references Hadid in the sultry "Wasted Times"
9. Beach House - Lemon Glow
Electronic duo Beach House has been making elusive, dreamy alt-pop for well over a decade. On their seventh album, aptly titled 7, “Lemon Glow” is a complete stand out.
It’s just direct enough to get stuck in your head, but also just weird enough to keep you coming back to listen for its many hidden pleasures.
This song is smartly matched with his love for old-school jazz and funk beats. “Done For Me,” with a feature from singer Kehlani, is equally smooth and groovy, a duet about romantic angst that still gets your toe tapping.
"Ball for Me" is one of the best tracks on Post Malone's new album, Beerbongs & Bentleys. It's smooth, catchy, and Nicki Minaj is featured, so obviously it can't get any better.
12. Childish Gambino - This Is America
The incredibly talented Donald Glover, wrote "This Is America" to highlight the gruesome reality of gun violence in America, and it's a poignant contribution to cultural conversation on what it means to live in this country, especially as a black person.
Kendrick and SZA dropped their first original song from the Black Panther soundtrack reminding us they're the duet we didn't know we needed.
All the Stars goes in a different direction with a more upbeat vibe but it's still equally as amazing.
14. Daddy Yankee - "Dura"
Write the 40-year-old Puerto Rican singer down on your list of rising artists, and proceed to add this song to your next vacation playlist. Between "Finesse" and "Dura," it's the year of '90s-inspired music videos.
15. Justin Timberlake - Filthy
This is the first solo release from Timberlake's upcoming album, Man of the Woods. It's no FutureSex/Love Sounds (2006), but it definitely bumps.
