1. Bad Blood (Taylor Swift feat. Kendrick Lamar)- Honestly, though I don’t hate this song originally, I hated this music video and the remix. I feel bad because there was so much hype and excitement, and I just thought that T-Swizzle dropped the ball a bit on her concept. I still really love her though, and I want to like her newest hit.
2.See You Again (Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth)- I still love this song though I’ve not enjoyed any performances I’ve seen of it except when The Voice’s Chris Jamison stood in for Charlie Puth. Wiz Khalifa’s offbeat dance moves just don’t do it for me.
3. Trap Queen (Fetty Wap)- Like I’ve said before, I don’t like this rap song, and honestly, it’s probably just because I don’t like rap. I’ll let that one be.
4. Shut Up and Dance (Walk the Moon)- I don’t think I will ever not like this song, and I continue to dance like an idiot to it when I’m driving to wherever. It’s so hopeful and upbeat and happy. No strings or commitment, just a dance with someone who has caught your eye.
5. Earned It (The Weeknd)- I still believe that this tune is borderline creepy, but DWTS’s Rumer and Val made me like it just a bit more with their magical Viennese waltz. I guess it’ll grow on me with time.
6. Uptown Funk! (Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars)- I think that at this point, this tune is basically a classic. Everyone knows it, and there was a time when it topped the charts, but I feel like it’s become more of an antique as far as the music industry goes.
7. Want to Want Me (Jason Derulo)- This is another one of my car jams, and though it’s a little grammatically questionable (what does “I want to want me” mean though?), I really like the beat and sound of it all. His live performances of his hit have been a little shaky, but the recorded version I bought is nice.
8. Hey Mama (David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha, & Afrojack)-I hate to say this, but I’m not a huge fan of really any of the artists on this track. I still don’t really understand Guetta’s genre of music, and Nicki Minaj’s voice just isn’t my thing.
9. Sugar (Maroon 5)- Great song, if you ask me, and a real competitor for this summer’s hit tune. Adam Levine’s amazing falsetto is wonderfully showcased on this track, and I like the rhythm and vibe I get from the entire production. Plus, I loved the wedding crasher music video.
10. Nasty Freestyle (T-Wayne)- I honestly don’t understand the message of this song, and after reading the lyrics, I didn’t even bother to play it. So, I guess I can’t really judge.
11. Love Me Like You Do (Ellie Goulding)- Honestly, this 50 Shades soundtrack isn’t half-bad, and obviously, this song is a hit. Ellie Goulding has an extremely unique voice, and I think that we’re all really appreciating it on this track.
12. Honey I’m Good (Andy Grammar)- I really like this artist, and as I’ve said before, I adore this “hoe-down” style dance song. I can’t but want to sing along even though I genuinely feel like I should hate every second of it.
13. Talking Body (Tove Lo)- Despite how crass the explicit version of this song is, I like the tune. Still, the lyrics (yes, even in the clean version) are just kind of strange… “If we’re talking body, you’ve got a perfect one, so put it on me.” Not exactly my idea of flirting, but okay, Tove Lo.
14. Dear Future Husband (Meghan Trainor)- To me, this lovely new hit from M-Train is kind of a throwback, and I love it. Though her checklist for a life-partner is a bit extensive, I think she looks quite adorable when performing this cutesy song.
15. Post to Be (Omarian feat. Chris Brown & Jhene Aiko)- Please learn proper grammar and then return to the Billboard charts, please and thank you. That is all.
16. Thinking Out Loud (Ed Sheeran)- I’m still in love with this song and the fact that Ed took ballroom dancing lessons to film the music video. It’s raw and emotional, yet it’s not too cheesy or over the top. It’s a simple love song, as good as they come.
17. Worth It (Fifth Harmony feat. Kid Ink)- For some reason, every time I hear the introduction to this song, I think of “Talk Dirty to Me” by Jason Derulo, and it’s not a good first impression. Plus, the tiny little girls of Fifth Harmony remind me too much of tweens to be dancing as sexily as they do during this track.
18. You Know You Like It (DJ Snake & AlunaGeorge)- Despite the fact that again, I feel like I shouldn’t like this song, it kind of makes me dance a little bit. The lyrics are weirdly contagious, and I find myself singing along even though I don’t really want to.
19. Somebody (Natalie La Rose feat. Jeremih)- This fun party song will always make me jam out when it comes on the radio, and though I’ve gotten a little sick of hearing it at this point, I think it’ll make a comeback to my playlists in a couple months.
20. Where Are U Now (Skrillex & Diplo feat. Justin Bieber)- It’s kind of crazy to see JB return to the charts with this hip hop song, and I actually enjoy it in small doses. It’s not my favorite, and I don’t think it will ever hit number one, but you never know, this could be the Biebster’s comeback.
There’s May in music for you! What song has been your favorite for the past month? Happy kommenting :)
