2018’s SHOOT IT STRAIGHT INTO MY FUCKING VEINS List — March-April

I’ve been feeling some withdrawals of late, so time to shoot some more of 2018’s catchiest songs into my (fucking) veins!

Nine songs have helped me through the 60 days since my last relapse update:


Shawn Mendes sounds like a cross between Justin Timberlake, Sam Smith, and John Mayer, with sprinkles of soft Daft Punk:


Hard to argue with this cavalcade of names:


“Lemon” will always be a 2017 release in my heart of hearts, but how can I not include this remix here?! Drake’s flow + that beat (it could sustain every rapper spitting bars over it) = endless repeat:


This one’s ACTUALLY a 2017 release, but it was late in the year and I’m only discovering it now and since this is my list you’re gonna have to deal with it. The best remixes don’t sound like remixes; that’s how seamlessly Calvin merges with the original:


Calvin Harris is my musical kryptonite. An early contender for my favorite song of the year! I need an extended mix like right now (though i guess perpetual repeat achieves the same effect):


A classic “Forgot About Dre” move from Nicki a mere week after Cardi B — a B-version of Minaj — dropped her debut album. Why do people prefer “Chun-Li”?!


Seductive sensuality at its R&B finest:


The rare song that wouldn’t be nearly as good if it was any shorter. It takes the vibe a full four minutes to really get inside your bones (also, the fact that my beloved Khalid is basically featured on a new single every week is yet another sure-fire sign that he’s going to be a star):


Apple’s got some good taste in music! Though I’m surprised an obsessively squeaky-clean company would use such an explicit song as the soundtrack for a commercial that might entice kids to Shazam this Bullshit “Batshit”:
