Song of the Summer is probably one of the highest achievements an artist can achieve. It’s just under getting a Grammy and being asked to join Taylor Swift’s squad. And with every summer season comes a plethora of contenders all vying for the coveted title of song of the summer. And it seems Summer ’16 is full of many contestants. All of these songs are perfect for summer. Their fun, dancy, and sexual. And really what more can do you want in a song? So I’ve comprised a list of the best potential songs of the summer. So who will join the ranks of “California Gurls”, “Call Me Maybe”, and “Can’t Feel My Face”? We’ll have to wait till September to find out.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year you’ve probably heard Taylor Swift’s iconic, life-changing album 1989. For the past five months Swift has been touring her album around the world. Now while Swift touring is already huge news, what makes this tour really newsworthy is that she has been bringing out special guests for every show. Swift has gone through her address book of A-listers and called upon her squad to be surprise guests at her shows. Now the thing with her special guests is that they’re totally unpredictable. From musicians to actors, models, and even athletes, everyone is welcome on Taylor’s stage. Some of her recent guests include Steven Tyler, Mick Jagger, Selena Gomez, Fetty Wap, Leona Lewis, and the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team. See, they’re completely random ranging from age group, demographic, and genre, proving that Taylor Swift is truly a masterful performer. Now after seeing post after post on Swift’s Instagram account she is finally bringing her tour to Toronto this Friday October 2 and Saturday October 3. And of course like the loyal Swiftie I am, I will be attending her Friday show. Now while I am extremely excited to see Queen Taylor belting out her infamous songs, I am intrigued to see who she will bring as her guests. She’s already had a handful of performers grace her stage, so it will be interesting to see who the next chosen one is. Plus Toronto is home to a wide variety of talent so Taylor has a lot to choose from.
