What Should Your 2015 Summer Jam Be?

Pump up YOUR jam.

Posted on

We can all agree that 2014 saw some seriously slammin' summer jams.

From Jessie to Ari, from Iggy to Charli, there were more than enough hits to go around.

But now it's summer 2015, and you're probably totally freaking out because you don't have a summer jam yet.

But don't worry! We've got you covered.

With the 2015 Song-of-the-Summer season just beginning, there's plenty of potential on the horizon.

So sit back, relax, and get ready to crank up your new jam.

1. You Loved: "Wiggle" by Jason Derulo in 2014

Then Check Out: "Drop That Kitty" by Ty Dolla $ign (feat. Charli XCX & Tinashe) in 2015

Just as brash and upfront as Derulo's "Wiggle," Ty Dolla $ign's trap banger is sure to get the entire dance floor wiggling.

2. You Loved: "Break Free" by Ariana Grande (feat. Zedd)

Then Check Out: "I Want You to Know" by Zedd (feat. Selena Gomez)

An exhilarating, infectious dancehall anthem, "IWYTK" is the 2015 equivalent of "Break Free," but with an extra serving of booming synth and sugar-sweet vocals by Selena Gomez.

3. You Loved: "Turn Down for What" by DJ Snake and Lil John


Then Check Out: "Lean On" by Major Lazer & DJ Snake (feat. MØ)

Backed by the same dance-friendly DJ as 2014's "Turn Down for What," "Lean On" has the added bonus of an irresistible chorus and slick vocals by the ultra-talented MØ.

4. You Loved: "Bang Bang" by Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj

Then Check Out: "Nobody Love" by Tori Kelly

Big-time belting plus non-stop beats equals a summer jam just as loop-worthy as Nicki, Jessie & Ari's "Bang Bang."

5. You Loved: "Chandelier" by Sia

Then Check Out: "OctaHate" by Ryn Weaver

Ryn's unique vocals blend seamlessly with the bright, electronic melody of "OctaHate." Like Sia, Weaver's songs are layered with subtext and intricate meaning, but coated with a brilliant layer of exciting sounds and synths.

6. You Loved: "Rather Be" by Clean Bandit (feat. Jess Glynne)

Then Check Out: "Not Letting Go" by Tinie Tempah (feat. Jess Glynne)

"Rather Be" and "Not Letting Go" share two commonalities: gorgeous vocals by the outrageously talented Jess Glynne, and a lighthearted, uptempo melody that makes them perfect summer jam potential.

7. You Loved: "Boom Clap" by Charli XCX


Then Check Out: "Sparks" by Hilary Duff

Bubblegum pop at its finest, both "Sparks" and "Boom Clap" are 100% pure fun with a side of flirty vocals.

8. You Loved: "Rude" by Magic

Then Check Out: "Love Me Badder" by Elliphant

Another island-infused jam, "Love Me Badder" tells the story of love gone wrong set to a thumping beat and a hook sure to be stuck in your head all summer.

9. You Loved: "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran

Then Check Out: "Some Kind of Love" by Charlie Puth

View this video on YouTube

A pop-friendly slow jam, "Some Kind of Love" is a crooning ode to romance not unlike Sheeran's beautifully tender "Thinking Out Loud."

10. You Loved: "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea (feat. Charli XCX)

Then Check Out: "Pretty Girls" by Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea

View this video on YouTube

Equal parts fierce and fun, "Pretty Girls" has the potential to be this summer's pop anthem. With its glossy hip hop beats and stellar star-power, "Pretty Girls" is a certified summertime banger.
