1. “Spaceships” by Trippie Redd Ft. Young Thug
Starting 2021 with a song from raps MVP of 2020 is a must. Trippie Redd shows off both his voice and his bars in this sick song from his new album Pegasus. The Young Thug feature is an absolute hit.
2. “Stay High” by Juice WRLD
Vibes will stay high when you play this fire jam by Juice WRLD. Help keep the spirit of the young rap phenom alive and blare this song all year long.
3. “Blue World” by Mac Miller
Mac’s music has inspired many and changed the rap industry forever. This fresh song from his final album has a contagious beat and Mac brings the lyrical flow that made him a legend.
4. “Therefore I Am” by Billie Eilish
The dark, hypnotizing and unique Billie Eilish is back with another banger. “Therefore I Am” is a catchy addition to the artist’s already epic catalog.
5. “The Adults Are Talking” by The Strokes
After seven years, The Strokes are back and rocking harder than ever. The first single from the band’s long awaited album sets the tone for the entire project. These rock legends make it clear that they are still on top with “The Adults Are Talking.”
6. “Invisible” by MonoNeon
A funk and R&B mastermind, this rising star hit the ball out of the park with his new single “Invisible.” Between the bumping bass, jazzy guitar and goosebump-inducing vocals, this song will guarantee a happy and hip 2021.
7. “Dragonball Durag” by Thundercat
Thundercat is heading into 2021 flying high, and you will too when you jam out to the artist’s sensational song “Dragonball Durag.” It seems like everything the singer, bassist and producer touches turns to gold, and this song does NOT disappoint.
8. “Borderline” by Tame Impala
Tame Impala’s playful and psychedelic sound totally has us hooked, and their new song “Borderline” lives up to the expectations. Relax and refresh with this awesome song from the producer’s album The Slow Rush.
9. “The Colour of Love” by The Smashing Pumpkins
‘90’s rock fans are going crazy for The Smashing Pumpkins new album and leading the way is their excellent single. Billy Corgan’s vocals are amazing (as usual) and the guitar thrashes like a thunderstorm.
10. “Living in A Ghost Town” by The Rolling Stones
Blow your speakers out with this single from the ultimate OG rock ‘n rollers. The Rolling Stones have been doing it since 1962 and they are STILL pumping out rock anthems. Arguably the greatest rock band of all-time, The Rolling Stones never disappoint.
11. “Volvo” by Kota the Friend
As an artist who gained a lot of well-earned recognition in 2020, Kota hopes 2021 will be even bigger. His song “Volvo” is calm like a car ride with the windows down, perfect for winding down after a long day (or in this case, a long year).
12. Backstage Pass” by Smino (Ft. Monte Booker, The Drums)
Smino drops another jam that hits us right in the feels. The rapper and singer is a fantastic and relatable story teller, making his songs easy to get stuck in your head. “Backstage Pass” is a prime example of that.
13. “Runnin’” by 21 Savage
21 Savage has been huge for a few years now, but this newest album, SAVAGE MODE II, has propelled the Atlanta rapper to the top of the hip-hop industry. “Runnin’” really shows how far 21 has come.
14. “No Honorable Mentions” by Trippie Redd (Ft. Quavo)
We end this badass playlist the same way it started; with some Trippie. Accompanied by Quavo, Trippie Redd shows exactly why he’s a pioneer in the new school rap game. Both rappers bring the heat on this one.
