Beast mode: Songs to Power through this Semester

By Yerellys Michel

The semster has officially started and you are mentally starting to feel it. Already suffering through the late nights and a load of homework, this semester is starting to look like a major pain. However a killer playlsit and the will of motivation will help make the rough edges of education slightly easier to handle.



G-eazy is the way to go if you need a boost of ego and energy. This Bay rapper has gone from underground to mainstream in a matter of seconds. If you’re into slick talking and seductive lingo, this is the guy for you.

Calm Down
You Got ME
Me Myself & I
I Mean It
Order More
Been On



Kehlani, is also from the Bay, was discovered through social media. Her music and style reminds you of Aaliyah.

Gangsta (from Suicide Squad)
The Way ft. Chance the rapper

Charli XCX


Finally, Charli XCX has blessed us with a new song. The singer hit the scene back in 2014 on Iggy Azalea’s song “Fancy”.   


Twenty One Pilot


Twenty One Pilots’ first major hit was back in 2011 with the song “With Holding on to You”. If you haven’t heard of it, you should definitely check it out. The band as a whole can be best described as one that speaks to you through their modern version of rap and edge.

Heathens (Suicide Squad)
Stressed Out



No comment, the Barbados singer needs no advertisement as she widely well-known to the public. She can do bad all on her own. Her revolution is remarkable with her captive lyrics that somehow always get stuck in your head. From signer to fashion icon to designer, I can’t wait to see what RiRi has for us in the future.

This is what you came for
Nothing is Pormised
Needed Me

The Chainsmokers


This new duo is taking over every radio station in the U.S. The duo targets our reckless indie hipster alter ego within each and every one of us.

Don’t let me down ft, Daya
Closer ft. Halsey

Fifth Harmony


If you were into the Spice Girls, then you’ll be into this trending girl group.  No other female group in our recent generation has been able to accomplished what they have. They empower women to sell their sex appeal and are symbol to stand up for our dreams. Take a listen to their latest hits.

All in My Head ft. Fetty Wap
Work from Home ft. Ty Dolla $ign
Worth It ft. Kid Ink



This song is super catchy and the beat is contagious. Listen to the song right away and you’ll see why the opinion is valid.

Never be like you ft. Kai



Drake keeps popping out new hits all the time. He makes us want to jump up from our seats and bust a move.

Too Good for you ft. Rihanna
One Dance
Hotline Bling

Kanye West

Hopefully Kanye’ over-the-top ego rubs off in his music and help us with our school work; we’ll be great without even trying.

Pt. 2
Real Friends



Why not Adele? Her voice is unique and reminds us that we left our baggage in the past and are ready for the future.

Send My Love

Tinie Tempah


Tinie’s music defines the trend of the moment in the music industry. The song “Girls Like” was on constant repeat last year.

Girls Like ft. Zara Larsson
You Got ME

Iggy Azalea


Azalea has had a lot of backlash in the last year, but her music still rings strong. Her beat gives off the dancing vibe, which is perfect for a playlist on a Friday night.


Bebe Rexha


Bebe isn’t new to the scene, but maybe you haven’t recognized her due to her drastic hairstyle. If you’re wondering who is the female voice in Me Myself and I on the G-eazy track, well your search is now over.

No Broken Hearts ft. Nicki Minaj

Ariana Grande


Ever since Ariana hit the music scene after finishing the television show Victorious every song that she drops tops the charts and stays there. Seeing her perform in person, this beauty is truly talented and her voice is no joke.

Side to Side ft. Nicki
Into you
Let me Love You
