💿 Welcome 💿

Hey y'all! First of all, thanks for visiting my Best of 2018 :party: Last year I hid the 2017 thread (:skull:) because I got lazy and I also started with my lists too late.

Anyway 2018 in music... I feel... like it wasn't the best year (for my taste in music). With the exception of great albums and songs that were released on 2018, this was the year where I felt the necessity of discover new music, and I think it was because I wasn't satisfied with the music that was released this year :matty:

But also it could be worse.... There are some great bops and sad songs that were released on 2018 (that's why you need to check my lists :thing:).

These are the categories:

💿 Best Songs of 2018 💿

A list of 130 songs that were released this year. I didn't include songs that were released originally on 2017 but were released as a singles this year (with the exception of 2-5 songs that are part from an album released this year).


💿 Best Albums of 2018 💿

A list of 15 albums that were released this year. This was so hard to do... It originally was a Top 10 albums with honorable mentions but I decided to do a Top 15 (the problem is that I couldn't even rank 15 albums that I really love this year). So I was generous with the albums at the bottom of the list :foxaylove2:


💿 Artist, Song and Album of the Year 💿

An artist, a song and an album that had a huge impact on me this year.


💿 Discoveries of 2018 💿

A list of my favorite 42 songs that I discovered this year.


💿 Re-discovered bops 💿

Okay, this list is so random but it's basically a list of 26 songs that I already knew but really start to like this year!

David Guetta - Don't Leave Me Alone (feat. Anne-Marie)


Cute song! I like to hear it with headphones :jamming:





 Meghan Trainor - Can't Dance


When this song was released I loved it, but 'Let You Be Right' ended up winning :cm:





ZAYN - Good Years


The song is so new, it needs to grow on me a bit, but at least made my list :clap3:





Charlie Puth - If You Leave Me Now (feat. Boyz II Men)


I love the vibe of this song. It sounds like a song from the '90s (which is probably the intention).

It's a bit boring sometimes but I like to hear it once in a while and the lyrics are cute!






SAARA - Sangria


A bop :katie2: It could have better lyrics tho :duck:

Still a bop, and I love the instrumental of the song :heart2:

I post the music video since it's probably unknown for most of y'all:

It's wasn't a hard to do, the only thing that took me a bit of time was trying to find photos that I liked to put in the OP!

i haven't listen to charlie's album, is it good?

If you liked his singles, give it a try. It's better than his debut (that's for sure).

Olly Murs - Somebody New


I listened to Olly's lastest album 'You Know I Know', and I didn't like it so much (he doesn't bring something new to the table)...

But this song is a bop (and the only song I liked from the album)!!

The instrumental reminds me of a song from HSM (in a good way :gaycat4:)





ZAYN - Natural


Another song of ZAYN! Tbh most of the songs I liked from his album are on the bottom of my list (they need to grow on me).

Cute bop!





TINI - Never Ready


I loved her debut album despite of being a bit generic.

In her 2nd album she goes more for the latin trend with most of her album in Spanish with a few songs in English.

This is one of my favorites songs on her album! :katie2:






LSD - Genius


Great song for being their debut single.

I never imagined that Sia, Labrinth and Diplo would make bops together :clap3:





Mariah Carey - With You


Cute song! :heart2:

Genius is such a great song. :smitten: 

Glad that Let You Be Right ends up as the rightful winner. :eli: 

I love "If You Leave Me Now," it hits me hard that current artists don't sing like that anymore. :jonny:

fisdjfidsf not you hiding your 2017 thread :rip:

#130-126: CAN'T DANCE is cute but yeah, LYBR deservedly won! Haven't listened to Good Years but I'm gonna check out Icarus Falls soon. I've surprisingly been hearing good things but I'm not really excited since half of the pre-release tracks were weak. | #125-121: Same thing for Natural :keir: Genius didn't do anything for me, but they got my attention with Thunderclouds.

I agree. Whe pre-release tracks are my least favorites. In my opinion the album is a bit messy but it has great songs :gaycat4:

Sia - I'm Still Here


This is a typical Sia song. It's cute and I love her voice on this song :smitten: (especially the high notes at the end).

Maybe it's a bit repetitive but it's catchy!





ZAYN - Satisfaction


Another song of ZAYN... But what you expect.. his album has 27 songs... don't judge me :deadbanana:




As I said with the previous ones, I like this song but it needs to grow on me because it's sooo new ... (don't judge me)





Liam Payne, Rita Ora - For You


Cute song to start the year! Their voices work well together and the instrumental sounds great :clap3:





Selena Gomez - Back To You


I didn't like this song at first, but I've been replaying it the last days and it's a cute bop :gaycat2:





Mariah Carey - A No No


This song it's so Mariah, I love it and it's so funny!


These are my favorite lyrics of the song:


Parlez-vous français? I said non
Lemme translate it, I said no
I can say it en español
(No no no no)
Portuguese for you não
Japanese for you (iie)
