THE BEST OF 2016 PLAYLIST

From the death of David Bowie and Prince, to the death of Harambe and America, 2016 was certainly a year. While we all struggled and cried, no one can deny that there were good times. Whether it was memes, Beyoncé, or constantly dabbing, all of us found a way to make it through the year. Despite, or perhaps in spite of, all that happened in 2016, there was definitely some incredible music made from people of all genders, races, sexualities, and political affiliations in every genre and style, proving once again that music is truly a universal language.
