Welcome to our latest installment of #TopTenTuesdays
Last week’s installment The Top Ten Christmas Songs of All Time got me roasted by a lot of people. So what tho! LOL
A sincere thank you to everyone who shares/commented and bookmarked the site because of it!
Today, I present to you, the very best songs of 2016.
Remember, as with every #TopTenTuesdays posting, this list is indeed non-negotiable.
10. Ab Soul – D.R.U.G.S.
This is a newer entry because the album just stopped last week, but I love this damn song. Helluva project from one of the underrated members of Black Hippy.
9. Lukas Graham – 7 Years
Down year in Pop/99.5 music for myself but this was my jam here.
8. Rihanna – Needed Me
I had to choose between this or Work and I chose this because I’m tired of hearing Work. Usually I HATE a bunch of random curse words in R&B music, but her fine ass pulled it off and I don’t care nary one bit! Keep cussin boo!
7. Bruno Mars – 24K Magic
Bruno dropped a classic here. 80’s R&B-inspired and hella fun! One of the coolest videos in a while too.
6. Boogie – Nigga Needs
Shout out to Rihanna’s IG Account for puttin me on to this cat. I had never heard of him until I googled the song and he seems to have a pretty large following on the west coast. This song/video is amazing and his mixtape “Thirst 48 Part II” is a solid release from this underground artist.
5. Big Baby D.R.A.M. – Cash Machine
I can’t WAIT till more people catch on to D.R.A.M. and his music. This here is a cranker! Dudes out here having fun with the music and I ain’t mad at em.
4. Future – Wicked
Who cares if 90% of the listening public cant decipher the words, its rockin…and it gets the people goin! #FutureHive
3. Anderson.Paak – Come Down
Anderson.Paak is by far my favorite artist in the game today. I could have chose a myriad of songs but I chose this one simply because at the Roots Picnic in Philadelphia, I danced like hell to this LOL.
2. Chance The Rapper – Summer Friends
My favorite track on my favorite album of the year. Great message as it is with most of Chance’s music.
1. Rae Sremurd – Black Beatles
Was there any doubt? I’m no fuddy duddy, let these youngins cook!
Because THAT GIRL IS A REAL CROWD PLEASER!!!!

* Editor’s Note Part II: I know Formation SHOULD be on this list, but I’m a man and Beyonce (no matter how talented she is) doesn’t make music for male listeners. Just the facts, Ma’am
