We’re halfway through the year, and the songs of 2018 have already brought the heat. Whether you’ve needed dirty sex jams, anthemic pop bangers, or high-octane rap tracks, artists like Rae Sremmurd, Ariana Grande, and Tyler, The Creator have all been there to deliver. There’s also been plenty of surprises to keep us going – funk has been brought from the likes of Anderson .Paak and The Internet, while a couple notable highlights from Lykke Li and John Mayer have served as major genre-switches.

Which is to say, the best songs of 2018 are an impressive bunch. Check out our list of our favorite tracks of the year (and stream them all in our playlist) below.
