A Glimpse of Last Summer’s Music and Songs To Get You Ready for Summer

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Sacred Heart chapter.

Everyone is counting down the days until summer, this year more than ever. Between the election, COVID-19 pandemic, and many other traumatic historic events, we have high expectations for what next summer will bring. Music is arguably one of the largest parts of everyone’s everyday lives. Therefore, reflecting on last year, “Break My Heart” by Dua Lipa and “Intentions” by Justin Bieber topped the charts. In July, “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd and “Say So” by Doja Cat were played all over. In August, Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” and “Rose” by St Jhn held the top spots. All of these songs made for irreplaceable summer memories; captivating beach days with friends; snacking on delicious ice cream on a hot day; watching fireworks; spending time in the outdoors, and, best of all, listening to music with the windows down. With Summer 2021 approaching, here are songs to add to your playlist to get you in the mood for warm weather and fun times:
