Do not answer “Despacito,” please!
There was actually some good music this summer, and some good drama to accompany their releases as well. We’re sure that songs like “Despacito” and “I’m the One” will be ranking high on lists everywhere, but what about the song of the summer for us homosexuals?
Here are contenders for “Gay Song of the Summer” 2017:
“Mailbu” by Miley Cyrus
Sweet and subtle, the tune really got the gay sea of approval when Cyrus released the remixes.
“New Rules” by Dua Lipa
This jam saved drunk gays everywhere from themselves 3:00am at the club.
“Wild Thoughts” by DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller
One word: Rihanna. Need we say more?
“Swish Swish” by Katy Perry with Nicki Minaj
The video is horrible but the song is sick, especially the bridge by Nicki.
“Look What You Made Me Do” by Taylor Swift
True, it came out at the tail end of summer. Love it or hate it, you know years from now you’re going to be talking about it.
“Cut To The Feeling” by Carly Rae Jepsen
Carly Rae is the most under appreciated pop princess of her generation. Unlike everybody else, the gays are well aware of this girl’s ability to create a good pop anthem, and this jam proves us right.
“Lust for Life” by Lana Del Rey with The Weeknd
The vocals of this ballad soothed us all into a sweet summer daze, pool side in the Pines or beachside in P’town.
“Green Light” by Lorde
We could probably argue that the entire Melodrama album was the gay song of the summer, but we will downsize and just go with the lead single for this round-up.
“Want You Back” by HAIM
The quirky girls of HAIM released this track dealing with the impulses battled out between the head and the heart, a perfect soundtrack for hot summer flings.
“The Cure” by Lady Gaga
Gaga dropped this random single when she headlined Coachella in June, giving Little Monsters the pop track they so desperately missed from Joanne.
“Bad Liar” by Selena Gomez
This undeniably catchy and sensual track was an ear worm this summer, and its video featuring a same-sex love attraction made us love the Selena Gomez track even more.
