With summer in full swing there’s no shortage of fun in the sun! But what’s a summer vacation without some bumping beat to get your body moving!?! Cha cha your way through the summer with some of our favorite tunes (and music videos) that will instantly transport you to a permanent summer state-of-mind.
What better way to kick off the summer that in the streets of Miami’s Little Haiti. Featured as the backdrop of DJ Khaled’s newest drop “Wild Things” ft. Rihanna, Bryson Tiller, we can’t help but drool over Riri’s barely there summer wardrobe: bright citrusy jewel tones, breeze-flowing materials, smoldering fierce makeup, and hello, do we need to mention the barely there and over-bejeweled gladiator sandals!?! With an addictive Carlos Santana guitar sample, we can’t help but channel some serious Caribbean vibes every time it comes on.
Hailed as the song of summer ’17 is French Montana’s newest single titled “Unforgettable” featuring Swae Lee (one half of Rae Sremmurd) on the chorus. Split between Montana’s signature rapping and infectious beats, this song has us channeling a serious Afro-beat. And while the video was shot in the streets of Uganda with local children’s dancing, it’s easy to see how this song will have us working our bodies all summer.
Of course summer would be incomplete without a new hit from our favorite Colombiana hipshaker, Shakira! Having recently dropped “Me Enamore (I Fell In Love)” from her 11th album release, the feel good vibes hail from her being in love while writing the song – and it clearly shows. Fun and upbeat, we’ll have a hard time not falling in love with it ourselves.
Bring on the summer heat with Major Lazer’s latest release “Know No Better” featuring Travis Scott, Camila Cabello and Quavo. A mashup of electronica with injections of hard-core synths, the song infuses a Caribbean vibe, perfect as our new summertime anthem.
Channeling the heat from the Magic City itself is Sean Paul’s “Body” featuring Migos. Straight up filmed on the Art Deco streets of South Beach, the dance-infused single showcases the ultimate summer carnival, set against an addictive island beat. Hot city, hot women – bring on the heat!
And of course, the 2017 summer playlist would be incomplete without radio sensation Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” featuring Daddy Yankee. Translating to ‘slowly’ in English, the reggaeton-pop song showcases parts of old San Juan while party crashing around the island with Puerto Rican babes that have some serious thigh grasping moves. Ready to get your next party started, we bet you’ll be moving anything but despacito to this one.
