It is officially time to discuss what I enjoyed listening to this summer!
This summer was obviously way different than the others, but for me I thought the music that came out was unlike what I was expecting and I say this in the nicest way possible too! I felt as though we had several songs bring back a little bit of an 80’s flare, we had the BLM movement going on, and then there was me, more focused on the past than present tense and so my list is a bit smaller than it has in the last few years.
I don’t know if you will agree with me on this, but the music definitely reflected the times but then I am reminded by something that came to me one day.
The song was released back in March or April, I don’t really remember the actual month, but pop artists Sam Smith and Demi Lovato put out a track called “I’m Ready” which was clearly to be out before or during the Summer Olympics but since COVID-19 quickly ruined that event earlier in the year, I think we were subbed other songs as well. So, it will be very interesting to see the amount of music that was supposed to come out this year instead and I will try my best to keep track on the data for that type of motivational songs in 2021.
Here are my Top 10 songs for summer 2020!
