VERGE PICKS: TOP 10 DANCE SONGS OF 2018

It’s finally time to gather up all of our favourite dance smashes of the year and prepare for that ultimate party playlist. Whether you’re going out or having a fun night in with your mates, our top 10 dance bangers will get you in the mood for a new year ahead!

JAX JONES FT RAYE – “YOU DON’T KNOW ME”

Jax Jones always has the party anthems ready to go and this year he’s had us partying throughout the summer. If you’ve been out at all this year you would have heard this track and it never gets old!

CALVIN HARRIS FT SAM SMITH – “PROMISES” 

Calvin Harris is famous for having the most creative collaborations and who would have thought Sam Smith on a dance banger would work! This smooth track is a brilliant way to gear yourself up for a lively night!

FISHER – “LOSING IT”

If you went to Ibiza this year then you would have heard this on repeat. The drop on this track is ridiculously incredible and will get everyone in the house ready for a night to remember… or maybe not.

LOUD LUXURY – “BODY”

These two Canadian heroes have made our days pretty great with this track, now it’s time to put this track to real use for the big show that is New Years Eve. We guarantee that this will get a few replays over this party season!

ZEDD FT MAREN MORRIS GREY – “THE MIDDLE” 

This song has been in our headphones, cars, shops and everywhere else and we still haven’t had enough! This is a great track for singing at the top of your lungs and doing a little bathroom performance whilst you get ready… don’t worry we all do it!

CLEAN BANDIT FT DEMI LOVATO – “SOLO”

Clean Bandit always bring the smashes and “Solo” is just that. It’s impossible to not sing along and dance – we actually dare you to try! This track has been a favourite of ours this year and we have the biggest soft spot for some Demi Lovato!

MK, JONAS BLUE & BECKY HILL – “BACK & FORTH” 

MK and Jonas Blue together can only mean amazing things, add Becky Hill’s epic vocals and the only outcome is pure vibes! This track kept us in that party mood this whole year and it’s now time to put it to the test!

MARSHMELLO FT ANNE-MARIE – “FRIENDS”

Marshmello had a really great year, it seemed that he was constantly popping up with great songs that we became obsessed with! This phenomenal collaboration with one of the UK’s finest Anne-Marie was a total success and we just have to hear this wherever we are this New Years Eve!

SILK CITY FT DUA LIPA – “ELECTRICITY”

So what do you expect when Diplo and Mark Ronson get together to make music? Heaven that’s what! Plus, having Dua on the chorus never hurt anyone! This is a total favourite of ours, and we can’t wait to party the night away to this whilst imagining we’re at an amazing beach party, when really we’re sitting in our living rooms watching the fireworks because it’s too cold to leave the house.

CHAINSMOKERS FT KELSEA BALLERINI – “THIS FEELING” 

The Chainsmokers will always appear on our dance faves because they are just great at creating music that makes us want to dance the night away. This brilliant track is just what you need to get things going and start the new year with the best energy ever.
