It is about creating yourself" - G. The list of the decade has arrived. When I look back at the music of this decade, I see extraordinary change, both in the soundscape of America and the nature of who are our celebrities are Hey Lil Nas X. Waddup Cardi B. Other stars achieved legendary status. The true Artist of the Decade. To be fair, folks like Drake, Rihanna, Adele, and Ariana Grade did well for themselves and were super stars in their own right. They came in like wrecking balls, slayed the charts, and left behind an impressive catalogue that defined the s.

Overall, this decade gifted us serious BOPs! More tunes for our head tops! And musical events that defined and shaped pop-culture. Call me…maybe. Note, I underlined, bolded, AND capitalized my because this is a personal list of what I think are the best songs of the decade. They include songs that made a cultural impact both in the wider pop-verse, but also in specific genres, movements, and careers of musicians I enjoy.

Sorry to country. And Rock. To make the list meaningful, I stuck with songs that I knew and engaged with over the decade. Yes, it took a while. Every song was deliberately chosen with care; no song could be on the edge of glory. They all had to be great, glorious, iconic in some way, shape, or form. And for your listening pleasures, I created a Spotify playlist of all the songs here: Top Songs of the Decade. Billy Ray Cyrus When country meets trap, and works? Hands To Myself - Selena Gomez Fancy - Iggy Azalea feat.

Charli XCX Cheerleader Felix Jaehn Remix - Omi Give Me Everything - Pitbull feat. Neyo, Afrojack, and Nayer Wake Me Up - Avicii Schoolboy Q Post To Be - Omarion feat. These songs were club-ready, fun, and helped push pop-music away from the EDM beats of the early s and into more hip-hop and trap friendly production that characterized the remainder of the decade.

Titanium - David Guetta feat. Sia Motorsport - Migos feat. Work From Home - Fifth Harmony feat. Kimbra I loved this song. So did America and the world actually. It topped the Billboard Hot chart for 8 weeks and was one in 23 countries. Gotye and Kimbra trade barbs and accusations, but are singing so sweetly, you forget the song is beautifully bitter. FEFE - 6ix9ine feat. Nicki Minaj and Murda Beatz Loyal - Chris Brown feat. Everything Is Embarrassing - Skye Ferreira This song is nostalgia wrapped in melancholy set to lush 80s-style production.

The song is an undeniable vibe. Shallow - Lady Gaga feat. Bradley Cooper Started From The Bottom - Drake Style - Taylor Swift The chorus is Taylor Swift at her best. Specific, imaginative, and youthful in exuberance. How could we forget the Schmoney dance? Lean On - Major Lazer feat. I Love It - Icona Pop feat. Super Bass - Nicki Minaj The single that introduced the pop world to Nicki Minaj and her captivating flow. Black and Yellow - Wiz Khalifa Broccoli - DRAM feat.

Lil Yachty Praying - Kesha Kesha sings this ballad with emotional and vocal clarity and exudes strength and a will to persevere. At its release, many people interpreted the lyrics to be in reference to Dr. Luke, her ex-manager who she accused of sexual assault. Mask Off - Future The flute. Nicki Minaj Every now and then, we encounter a song that completely alters our musical appetite. It introduced me to indie-RnB and songs with sparse production and haunting vocals.

The song is tantalizing in its restraints. The production is tight, never deviating above or below a certain emotional state. The song neither gives away to release nor does it stay constant. Bad and Boujee - Migos feat. Lil Uzi Vert Telephone - Lady Gaga feat. Clique - Kanye West and Big Sean feat. Jay Z The beat. The bravado. Black Beatles - Rae Stremmurd feat. Gucci Mane Monster - Kanye West feat. With a bad bitch that came from Sri Lanka! Overall the song is fantastic, with Jay Z and Kanye delivering memorable verses.

Nicki Minaj leans into her trademark theatricality, which subsequently put her on the map and made her a hot artist to feature quite early on in her career. Despacito remix - Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee feat. Justin Bieber Teenage Dream - Katy Perry Youthful, fun, with a healthy dose of nostalgia. Why wake up from a dream if the music feels this carefree. No Problems - Chance The Rapper feat. Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz The Way - Ariana Grande feat. Mac Miller Our culture is used to seeing two rappers link up and boss out.

To see two women at the the top of their game do it? The song is upbeat, earnest, and self-reflective without being over-wrought. Thank u, next - Ariana Grande Hold Yuh remix - Gyptian feat. This song will always be danceable. It will aways sound fresh. The beat - simple. The ways to move your body to this song - infinite. Electricity - Silk City and Dua Lipa Drake Positively and absolutely snapped. I did not know I could love a song so intensely. Nice For What - Drake The s in many ways was the Decade of Drake.

He was a streaming giant, a meme generator, a guaranteed hit maker, and a musical chameleon. This a pop song that does exactly what it has to do. Deliver emotion, deliver ecstasy, deliver liberation. And the sweet joy that glues this song together uplifts. Bodak Yellow - Cardi B She makes money move. She also moves the culture single handidly with the force of her personality and strength of her rap performance. Cranes In The Sky - Solange The song works via vivid imagery, as Solange sings about her struggles to overcome depression and being out of herself.

We Found Love - Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris
