The songs we love that saved 2016 from itself.
We’ll remember 2016 as the year we lost Prince, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, and many other great musicians. But this year has also been a stellar year for new music. Heroes returned from long breaks, superstars reminded us of the talent that predated their celebrity, and new artists emerged to shape the sound of 2016. Below is a playlist of some of our favorite songs of the year.
Note: Beyoncé’s Lemonade was an office favorite, but at the time of publishing, it wasn’t available on Spotify or Apple Music, so we couldn’t include a track.
