Where has 2016 gone? It’s only July, and the year has already been filled with hot, chart-topping hits.
Rihanna and Drake seemed to dominate the charts and our playlists with singles like “Work” and “One Dance” and “Too Good.” Then Beyonce not only dropped an album that was the talk of the year due to its themes, but it also spawned hit single after hit single. 2016 has also brought us newcomers like Desiigner, Tory Lane and Kent Jones, who currently have singles on high rotation on radio.
Kanye West managed to get some of the big spitters in the rap game to lend their voices to his track “Champion.” DJ Khaled also brought Future and Jay Z together on a great song with an even more powerful video. Then there’s Chance the Rapper, who proved that you don’t need to be part of a major operation in order to hit the big time.
Here are our picks of the 20 Best Singles of 2016 So Far.
