McQ's Best Of 2018 Vol 6 - EAM's Favorites!

A music-loving chip off the old block, my daughter Ellie makes her first contribution to our ongoing family endeavor.

If you want a good sense of what female teenage ears were tuned in to in 2018, you could do a lot worse than this super enjoyable mix of contemporary pop and hip hop hits.

Here's the Spotify Link. Enjoy!

About The Artists/Albums/Songs Featured On This Mix:

1. Say Amen (Saturday Night) - Panic! At The Disco: Ellie kicks things off with the hit lead single from Vegas retro-poppers sixth full length Pray For The Wicked, an album that feels imbued with a heightened sense of theatricality following lead singer/songwriter Brandon Urie's stint on Broadway as a cast member of the play Kinky Boots. 

2. YOSEMITE - Travis Scott: from Astroworld.

3. Santeria - Pusha T: from Daytona.

4. STARGAZING - Travis Scott: from Astroworld.

5. God Is A Woman - Ariana Grande: from Sweetner.

6. Shallow - Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper: Not sure what else needs to be said about this Oscar-winning center piece track from the 2018 A Star Is Born Soundtrack, other than I'm glad Ellie included it because I would have found space for it otherwise. As good a specifically-written-for-film single as we've all heard in a while.

7. 3:15 - Bazzi: from Cosmic.

8. High Hopes - Panic! At The Disco: from Pray For The Wicked.

9. Nice For What - Drake: from Scorpion.

12. Love Lies - Khalid: single.

13. Uproar - Lil Wayne: from Tha Carter V.

14. Wait - Maroon 5: from Red Pill Blues.

15. Never Be The Same - Camila Cabello: from Camila.

16. Homesick - Dua Lipa: from Dua Lipa.

17. Girls Like You - Maroon 5: from Red Pill Blues.

18. TAlk tO Me - Tory Lanez: from LoVE me NOw (ReLoAdeD).

19. APESHIT - The Carters: from Everything Is Love.

20. Vacation - Flatbush Zombies: One of the best hip hop acts from my kid's pool of regulars, Flatbush Zombies are also one the strongest live hip hop acts I've ever seen.  This Joey Bada$$ featuring Ellie selection comes from the Brooklyn trio's 2018 sophomore full-length Vacation In Hell.

21. SAD! - XXXTENTACION: from ?.

22. Back To You - Selena Gomez: single.
