What a year 2015 has been across all genres in the music industry. From Drake to Justin Bieber to Adele to up-and-coming artists like Mura Masa, 2015 has brought ingenious sounds that will leave their mark in the changing world of music. As 2016 approaches, music lovers can look back on some of the year’s best hits. 

1. "Hotline Bling" by Drake

"Hotline Bling" is definitely one of the top hits of 2015. Not only is it extremely quotable and catchy, but it has one of the most entertaining music videos of the year.

2. "Love For That" by Mura Masa feat. Shura

Mura Masa, an up-and-coming artist, brings a fresh and innovative sound to 2015 with “Love For That.” It’s peaceful and one-of-a-kind sound is perfect to relax to. 

3. "Magnets" by Disclosure feat. Lorde

Lorde’s vocals paired with Disclosure’s unique sounds are a match made in heaven. 

4. "Roses" by The Chainsmokers feat. ROZES

The Chainsmokers and ROZES collaboration for the song “Roses” proved to be outstanding. Its pretty sound and captivating rhythm is quite enchanting.

5. "679" by Fetty Wap

The people love Fetty! “679” is such an enjoyable song that is so hard to not want to listen to over and over again. 

6. "Uma Thurman" by Fall Out Boy

Every member of Fall Out Boy went all out for “Uma Thurman” and it makes the lively song that much better. This song is funky, different and emphasizes Fall Out Boy’s contemporary sound. 

7. "Cry Baby" by The Neighbourhood 

“Cry Baby” truly displays The Neighbourhood’s talent, even way after their hit song “Sweater Weather.” Its lyrical content is hypnotizing and you might find yourself replaying the song quite often. 

8. "Sorry" by Justin Bieber

Justin is back and better than ever with his entire album of new jams. This song in particular literally impossible to listen to and not sing along to. If you can, I’m worried. 

9. "Can’t Feel My Face" by The Weeknd

The Weeknd never seems to disappoint. “Can’t Feel My Face” is one of those songs that is so perfectly executed that it is no surprise that it has reached such heavy critical acclaim. It is definitely a highlight of the best sounds of the year.

10. "Hello" by Adele

Everyone needs a song that they can cry to and Adele just knows how to get the waterworks flowing in a GOOD way.
