“Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake
Perfect as: Your song to kickstart the day with.
We’re calling it: JT’s track for DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls is the most feel-good thing you’ll hear all month. Even the official vid, which depicts ordinary folks dancing in the street, in the diner, in the supermarket, and in the laundromat, is over four minutes of pure happiness. An earlier video features the voice cast of Trolls, which, besides JT, also includes Anna Kendrick, Gwen Stefani, and James Corden.
“Toothbrush” by DNCE
Perfect for: Adult sleepovers. *wink*
The pop-rock band recently released the video for their funky new single, and it features frontman Joe Jonas getting steamy with plus-size model and body activist Ashley Graham. “Baby, you don’t have to rush; you can leave a toothbrush at my place,” Joe croons. Sweeter words were never spoken.
“Too Good” by Drake feat. Rihanna
Perfect for: Feeling taken for granted in a relationship.
After Drake teamed up with RiRi on “Work,” she now returns the favor by lending her vocals to this track off his latest album, Views. The Carribean-inspired “Too Good” depicts two sides of an unhappy relationship where the lovers no longer see eye to eye.
“In Common” by Alicia Keys
Perfect for: That one person who just…gets you.
AK fans, the long wait is over! She’s coming out with a follow-up album to 2012’s Girl on Fire later this year. For now, let her sultry, Latin-flavored new single pump you up for the album’s release.
“Into You” by Ariana Grande
Perfect for: That hottie you’ve been waiting to get with since forever.
Ari’s dancefloor-ready new track sees the pop star lustily longing for “a little less conversation, and a little more touch my body.” The ~thirst~ is strong with this one.
“This One’s for You” by David Guetta feat. Zara Larsson
Perfect as: Your #LABAN anthem.
The French superstar DJ enlists the Swedish songstress for this EDM track which serves as the official song of the UEFA European Championship 2016. It’s a huge, uplifting, intoxicating banger that’s the perfect thing to blast right before you carry out any major task, whether it’s launching a big project at work or finally tackling your spring cleaning.
“Final Song” by MØ
Perfect for: Embracing your inner Beyoncé.
The Danish singer-songwriter behind “Kamikaze” whips out another electro-pop number, and it is lit! MØ says that the song is “about reconnecting with your inner strength; with your inner glow, passion, spirit animal, whatever—the force that keeps us going and doing what we love… When you’re united with your inner glow you can beat the fears and fly towards your dreams.” True that.
“Write on Me” by Fifth Harmony
Perfect for: The man who knows you like no other.
The “Worth It” hitmakers have gifted us with a charming earworm that boasts Norwegian DJ Kygo on songwriting and production duties. “Everything is blank until you draw me / Touching on my body like you know me,” the girls sweetly sing to a lover who pretty much sounds like the most perfect lover there ever was.
“Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” by Adele
Perfect for: Accepting that it’s truly over between you and your ex (and being totes fine with it).
Adele has revealed that this magnanimous kiss-off—her “fuck-you song,” in her own words—was inspired by the man who broke her heart and prompted her to write the songs on her 2011 album 21. “I'm giving you up, I've forgiven it all, you set me free,” she sings. Tell him, sis.
“Chainsaw” by Nick Jonas
Perfect for: Drowning in remorse after a breakup.
Nick once again revisits his split from ex Olivia Culpo in this sad pop ballad, which is the most personal song he’s ever written, according to a tweet the singer sent out on the day of the song’s release. Nick also later tweeted this: “I loved. It ended. I had regret. I wrote a song.” ANG SAKIT-SAKIT.
