1. “New Patek” – Lil Uzi Vert
We first heard of this song when Uzi teased it in an Instagram post. “New Patek” oozes vintage Uzi with his fast hitting flows and anime lyrics. It’s not the first time we hear Uzi rapping about watches either.
2. “V” – Jay Park
In “V”, Jay Park delivers a soulful and catchy song about a female he’s trying to woo. With an infectious beat, this is definitely one for the pre-game.
3. “I Love It” – Kanye West Feat. Lil Pump
The video for the song is probably one of the most ridiculous ones ever made, but the catchy beat and hook make this a definite banger. Definitely one to sing along to – hip-hop karaoke anyone?
4. “Mo Bamba” – Sheck Wes
The ultimate party song of the year, Sheck Wes definitely blew up overnight with this absolute banger. Named after the Orlando Magic center, Mo Bamba delivers some of the hardest basslines and 808s, solidifying itself as a trap anthem.
5. “Don’t Gas Me” – Dizzee Rascal
Taken off his latest EP, Dizzee Rascal combines grime and drum and bass to create this infectious track. An OG in the grime scene, Dizzee definitely knows how to make tunes for the party.
6. “Rush” – atm
With a melodic guitar sample and some quick-hitting hi-hats, atm’s nonchalant delivery pairs well with the beat.
7. “Green” – Unknown Radicals
Unknown Radicals is creating proper Brockhampton vibes right out of the east side of Singapore. With a catchy hook and heavy-hitting, bass-heavy beat, one can’t help but vibe to this song.
8. “Little Bit of Lovin” – Roy Woods
Roy Woods channels his inner Michael Jackson with this tune. The ’80s inspired beat is sure to get you off your feet and dancing.
