The Perfect Playlist For A Night Out

  1. “My Way RMX Ft. Drake” by Remy Boyz.

Start the night off right with Drake crooning softly on this Fetty Wap remix. Drake’s calming voice paired with a house beat and preceded by Fetty Wap’s startlingly catchy lyrics will undoubtedly get you ready for a night out with friends. “It’s a great song to get pumped up to and it’s just a great collaboration between two incredible rappers,” said sophomore Lili McCurdy.

  1. “2 On” by Tinashe.

This hypnotic beat created by DJ Mustard layered with Tinashe’s signature tranquil vocals are sure to get you in the mood for whatever you and your squad are planning for the night. For best results listen to this song while driving down the highway with the windows down and the speakers blaring.

  1. “King Kunta” by Kendrick Lamar.

While jazz-and-funk-influenced music doesn’t exactly scream “turn up” to most people, Lamar’s breakout track from his third album “To Pimp A Butterfly” is the best song to have playing when pulling up to someone’s house. Not only is it a great song that will put you in the mood to dance, but its relevant political message will make you seem cultured and educated on institutionalized racism in the USA. “I love Kendrick. He is an incredible rapper and this song is my go to jam for when I’m driving,” said senior Ian Quinn.

  1. “Where Ya At” by Future.

At this point you aren’t listening to music for the joy of analyzing its components but simply to dance around and not have to think too critically about anything in general. Future’s slurred words and geniusly incompetent lyrics coupled with a simple beat with deep bass will provide you with the perfect song to dance around without a care in the world.

  1. “In The Night” by The Weeknd.

Start calming down with a wonderful mix of R&B and pop. Sing along to this as loud as you can (without disturbing the peace), grab the hand of a good friend, and dance around the living room in your most comfortable outfit carelessly.

  1. “90210” by Travi$ Scott.

As one of the best new artists of 2015, Travi$ Scott will catch your attention with his overly-autotuned voice and the mesmerizing flow of his lyrics. After an eventful night with a plethora of strange occurrences, reflect on your life and relax with this synthy track.

  1. “Hours” by FKA Twigs.

After a weird night, listen to a weird song. FKA Twigs is, without a doubt, a strange artist but don’t let that stop you. Bask in her minimalistic auditory aesthetic and get lost in her electric vocals. The production of the background music is calming, as are the lyrics, and are sure to get you ready for bed.

  1. “A World Alone” by Lorde.

It’s probably safe to say that the night Lorde was singing about in this song is very similar to the night you’ve just experienced. Lorde’s relatable lyrics and wry voice reflect perfectly the feelings of teenage angst and invincibility that many of us experience. Let this track put you to sleep while you’re resting in the most comfortable bed in the world. “Lorde is one of the artists that truly reflects our generation’s feelings through her music and it’s fun to relax and listen to her music, especially this song,” said senior Chiara Lucchesi.
