In 2016, there were many bops we danced to, twerked to, and sang to all day and all night. Many good albums came out this year such as Rihanna’s “ANTi”, Kanye West’s “The Life of Pablo”, and the long anticipated album “Blonde” by Frank Ocean.
But out of all the songs, which ones are we going to sing 10 years down the line when waiting to pick our kids up from school? Which songs this year will you turn up when you hear it on the radio?
