Whew! I’m goin’ in! 2017 let’s go!

This was a tough year for ranking songs. More good music exists than ever before and it’s gotten harder for me to stay on top of it, even as I get better at finding things.

Along with the typical smattering of American, Canadian, and English artists, this list includes bangers from all over the world — Jamaica, Cuba, Brazil, Nigeria, Ghana, Korea, China, and Japan. This was a year where I was perpetually discovering and rediscovering dance music scenes around the world. I fell in love with the Afro Beat sound, which has evolved into this beautiful melancholy of moody chords, minimal beats, and autotune. I caught the return of the dance movements of my college days in Brazilian baile funk and U.K. bassline. I checked in on the big year K-PoP is having and discovered some insane stuff coming out of China and Japan. Oh, and one Justin Bieber co-sign later, and we have ourselves a veritable raggaeton revival.

On top of that, rap continues to dominate – more on this in my Top Albums intro. There is nothing more exciting than Atlanta hip hop right now and I am terrified for the end of this bubble. Kids, please give us something better than Lil Pump to inherit the future.

Here goes — as always, you can find the complete list on Spotify as well.
