I had listed at least twelve songs for my playlist and it would be good now that the 2016 is about to start. Here are the new songs I included in my playlist:

I love this song for its conveying melody and Adele’s vocals is superb. Also, I can feel her the hearts coming from her heart.

For me, it is the best cut from their new album and I just included it on my playlist.

Alessia Cara- Here
This young singer is promising. I like her voice, musicality and how she shun from the way people loves to live like based on this song’s lyrics.

Drake- Hotline Bling
I just added it on my playlist as it is a good midtempo jam. Never mind Drake’s dance moves though.

I love the synth and the whole sound as it brings some breeze while listening to it.

Justin Bieber- I’ll Show You
I am loving synths in music and it is in this song. Also, this song reminds me of Owl City.

Dawin- Dessert
The song is very catchy and will surely make you move when listening to it.
