If you didn’t exactly thrive in 2021 like you thought you would, fear not – 2022 is your time to shine! And why not start it off with the perfect playlist? From crowd-pleasers and oldies you secretly love to TikTok songs and dance club anthems, here are 10 songs that will help you bid adieu to 2021 (and grant you aux cord privileges for all of 2022).
Megan Thee Stallion – Body
Ah, the dream would be twerking to this song with my squad at a house party with tequila shots in hand while wearing silly “Happy New Year” headbands.
Earth, Wind & Fire – Let’s Groove
We’ll just come out and say it: We love hearing this song after we’ve had a few glasses of bubbly in us. It never disappoints.
Mariah Carey – Obsessed
Mariah Carey: Queen of holiday bangers and queen of our hearts.
bbno$ – edamame (feat. Rich Brian)
Have you ever not been happy when this song came on? Exactly.
Miley Cyrus – Plastic Hearts
Miley’s divine voice on your NYE playlist? An obvious must. Next!
Arctic Monkeys – Red Lights Indicate Doors Are Secured
First of all, can we just have a moment of silence for the fact that this song came out FIFTEEN years ago?! WE AM NOT OKAY.
Doja Cat – Get Into It (Yuh)
Doja Cat’s had one hell of a year. Raise a glass for her while listening to the song that made everyone ‘get into it (yuh).’
Sir Mix-A-Lot – Baby Got Back
Ahem, ’90s hip hop songs *have* to make an appearance on NYE, it’s just a rule. Moving on.
Rihanna – Where Have You Been
If 2021 is the year you found love, then we say why not sing this song as loud as you freaking can? It’s the perfect song to remember all the stuff that led you to this moment with your one and only.
Lil Nas X – Industry Baby (feat. Jack Harlow)
This song has no right to be THIS GOOD, like, we don’t know why, it’s just so catchy.
