Favorite Line: Karma is a bitch, yeah/Same way they come that’s the way they go
Why Listen: Well, for one: it’s super funky. And whether or not you’ve ever been in this situation, we’ve all had someone who’s let us down. Might as well fume to a good beat.
Song: Wild Things
Artist: Alessia Cara
Favorite Line: You tell me to tread/I’d rather be a wild one instead
Why Listen: This is one of those songs you play while driving down the street, windows rolled down, all of your favorite friends packed into the car as you speed off to your next great adventure. It just taps into that youthful freedom and fearlessness to be who you are.
Favorite Line: You need me, there ain’t no leaving me behind
Why Listen: Speaking of another type of adventure … I can still see you cruising to this song (in a Monte Carlo perhaps?), but it’s much cooler, confident, and has that seductive edge that’s oh so Rihanna.
