Hot Songs for the Summer of 2013

The best way to enjoy the long days and awesome weather that comes along with summer is to have a great soundtrack in the background. Every year there’s always a great set of songs that you hear everywhere you go – the beach, summer weddings and parties, and other great events. This year’s no different. Check out some of the up-and-coming hot songs of Summer 2013!

Icona Pop – “I love It”. This song was the introduction to the hit MTV show “Snooki and JWoww” for the last year but is starting to hit it big on mainstream charts. With a crazy-catchy beat, you know that it’s going to be a hit on summer dance floors. Icona Pop is a duo of two women from Sweden.

Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams – “Get Lucky”. Most mainstream radio listeners probably aren’t familiar with Daft Punk, but they sure are familiar with Pharrell Williams (who appears on this track). A grammy-winning producer and artist, Pharrell has collaborated on megahits with Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, and more. This latest track is taking radio by storm and perfect to listen to while enjoying the summer sun.

Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis – “Can’t Hold Us”. In what is unofficially the best workout song of the summer, the infectious beat in Mackelmore/Ryan Lewis’s “Can’t Hold Us” will keep you moving all summer long. From the artists that brought you the recent “Thrift Shop” hit, this one is sure to be just as popular.

Florida Georgia Line feat. Nelly – “Cruise”.  It wouldn’t be a summer song list without a country song, right? Rapper Nelly joins country music duo Florida Georgia Line for the remix of their hit song “Cruise”. With lyrics like “I got my windows down and my radio up” it’s pretty much setting the stage for what a perfect  summer song should be.

It’s finally nice outside – time to get out there and start creating the soundtrack to your Summer 2013!
