LMFAO ft. Lil Jon “Shots”
Fans are familiar with LMFAO thanks to their 2011 breakout hit, “Party Rock Anthem,” but the group’s best party track is about something we can all relate to: drinking! Spring break calls for shots and there’s no better song to celebrate than the group’s 2009 collaborative song with Lil John “Shots.”
The Weeknd “Blinding Lights”
We’re only three months into 2021, and this already the year of The Weeknd. The Canadian artist shifted his music style in 2020 with the release of this heartbreak party anthem. This number is perfect for energetically dancing and finding a soulmate for a spring break fling.
