As the wrapping paper comes off and we wrap up another year, I wanted to take the time to reflect on some of our favorite 2016 must plays at weddings. Your dance floor will really come alive when you DJ plays these hits. These 5 songs are guaranteed to get everyone to join the party!
5. Ju Ju on that Beat by Zay Hilfigerrr and Zayion McCall:
If you feel like you recognize that catchy beat take a quick trip down memory lane to 2004 and you'll soon realize that this is the beat from "Knuck if you Buck" by Crime Mob. However, this song went viral earlier this year and it's not because the beat is catchy. HIlfigerrr and McCall released the video for this song and largely in part to social media; they started a dance craze that swept the nation. Play this song at your next event and see how may people you get to Ju Ju on that beat.
4. Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton:
Let's slow it down a little Nashville favorite. Originally recorded by David Allan Coe in 1981, Chris Stapleton gave new life to this oldie but goodie! Released in late 2015 on his Album Traveller It's soulful sound and captivating lyrics make this song a wonderful must play for the couples in the crowd.
3. Can't Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake:
FUN! This song is fun for all age! Originally recorded 2016 for the Dreamworks Motion Picture Trolls, Justin Timberlake gets everyone on their feet with this one. If you're looking for a song to liven up the party look no further throw this track on and give everyone "that feeling"!
2. Ignition (Remix) by R. Kelly:
Now, um, usually I don't do this but uh.... Go head' on and throw em back wit a lil' preview of the remix! I know what you're thinking, this song was released in 2003 how does it make the list for 2016? At your next party/get together throw this song on and count the people NOT singing and dancing. Some songs never die!
1. 24K Magic by Bruno Mars:
"Put your pinky rings up to the moon" and get ready to party! Bruno Mars has done it again in 2016! With his release of 24K Magic nearly 2 years after the crowd favorite Uptown Funk we needed another hit to keep us dancing. You can rest assured your DJ will we rocking this hit!
