Oh summer ❤️☀️... We can't say whether it's the heat or the vitamin D shot that makes it so, but there are some tracks that really give you the mood to sway or sing loudly on crazy beats. Obviously, the record companies have understood this and each year has its own great vintage of hits. Let's take a look at the 2021 selection of the best songs to sing to this summer.
Best songs of 2021 to sing to this summer: we're told in the headset that you should watch out for a certain Lil' Nas X
Lil' Nas X ! Well, you must have heard his 2019 hit "Old Town Road" which stayed at the top of the charts for 17 weeks, breaking the record previously held by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men for the song One Sweet Day.
The rapper, who has since come out, returns with "Montero (Call Me by Your Name)", a sultry track that has been in the news since its release, considered "blasphemous" by a number of puritans (who obviously know nothing about summer music).
And as Lil' Nas X is not the kind of person who does things by halves, to celebrate the release of the song with his fans, he had some "satanic trainers" (666 to be exact) customised, from a famous model. Tiny slippers for nothing that cost a ridiculous $1,000, all sold out in a few hours and with, hold on to your hat, human blood in the bubble of the sole 💉. It makes you want to, doesn't it ?
Still, "Montero" is a hit and has gone straight to number 1 in the charts in several countries.
Best songs of 2021 to sing to this summer according to the editors
We couldn't let you wait for the summer to arrive without finding some of the best music to listen to. In addition to the excellent "Montero (Call Me by Your Name)" that we mentioned above, here are a few killer songs for the summer of 2021.
Hot on the heels !

Nostalgia moment: the best music to sing to this summer in flashback mode
Among the summer hits, there are those famous timeless classics that you absolutely must include in your playlist, because it feels good.
The Beach Boys' "Surfin' USA" is a heavenly dive: the love story of the Beach Boys' singer Brian Wilson inspired the title Surfin' USA for the legendary band. It was thanks to his girlfriend's brother that he managed to list all the best surf spots on the Californian coast and turn them into a song. Isn't that nice ?
The secrets of Madonna's cult song "La Isla Bonita": La Isla Bonita was not supposed to be sung by Madonna, but by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, who turned it down. This ode to Latin culture got the world dancing... and boosted sales of ruffled dresses in the blink of an eye !
"Whenever Wherever" made Shakira famous: The track Whenever Wherever (Suerte in Spanish) is about long-distance relationships. After the release of this song, Colombian singer Shakira won 2 Grammy Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, class !
Luis Fonsi's "Despacito" or the appropriation that does not pass: in 2017, a few days before the Venezuelan presidential election, President Nicolas Maduro reappropriated the song with more than 7 billion views on YouTube for political purposes. This tasteless marketing operation has pissed off Luis Fonsi.
A summer hit remains a summer hit ! No way !
