5 Friday Favorites – Summer Songs for Shaking It Edition

As I sat down to write this post, my skin pricked with excitement. In case it isn’t obvious from my earlier posts, I take my music (and my dance parties) pretty seriously, and I couldn’t wait to curate a list of prime Summer-worthy jams to share with you all.

I gathered all my tools – Spotify, Shazam, pictures on my phone, and texts I had sent myself because I never know where or when a song is going to grab me. I created a short set of rules to narrow things down:

  1. Songs had to be released in 2017.
  2. They had to have an upbeat and/or summer-y vibe.
  3. I wanted a variety of genres, in addition to a mix of well-known and lesser-known artists.

And let me tell you, it wasn’t nearly as easy as I thought it’d be to get it down to 5 Favorites! I just can’t seem to narrow it down any more. And so, without further ado, I present my 5(x2) Friday Favorites – Summer Songs for Shaking It:
