The likes of Justin Timberlake, Drake, Charlie Puth, and Troye Sivan have been lording over the airwaves with their new songs, but some things are just hard to leave in the past—our 2017 playlist, to be particular.
You might be preparing for the Manila leg of the much-awaited concert tours of some of the biggest names in music today—the likes of Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran. Or you simply appreciate songs no matter what year you first heard it on the radio, and we get it.
Like you guys, we're totally in the mood for some novelty and new tunes to love, but here are seven foreign hits released last year that we pretty much still listen to everyday:
1) 'DEAN' by love
You know what women find sexy? A high regard for consent—and this modern jazz track is all about that. DEAN (whatever the hell that means) is perfect in setting the mood for sexytime.
2) 'That's What I Like' by Bruno Mars
You probably have Bruno Mars on loop, in time for his May arrival. Whether it's popping your shoulders to the beat, or snapping your fingers to this tunes, we're not judging because we're totally doing the same thing.
3) 'Shape of You' by Ed Sheeran
It's easy to get sick of anything Ed churns out, but watch how he came up with "Shape of You" and you'll never press that skip button on this hit ever again.
4) 'Still Feel Like Your Man' by John Mayer
The ideal theme song for the new rom-com series of the same name starring Dennis Trillo, Lovi Poe, Rhian Ramos, and Max Collins. With Mayer's signature strings, it sounds pretty much like a '70s acoustic classic.
5) 'Green Light' by Lorde
We would shamelessly sing our lungs dry when this plays in a music festival. Admit it, the electropop ditty goes well with our favorite house beats.
6) 'HUMBLE' by Kendrick Lamar
Just when you thought your LSS on Kendrick Lamar's 2017 smash has subsided, it dominates the Grammys (Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, and Best Music Video). Now you're back exactly where you started.
7) 'Bodak Yellow' by Cardi B
B*tch can't stop listening to this song, even if you wanted to. You probably uttered the same Cardi B Bronx swag in your head, huh?
