We all love music, but there are a few songs that stick out the most, the ones you HAVE to add to your playlist. Sometimes I want to listen to music, but I also want to chill. So, if you're feeling the same way here are my top ten chill songs, plus some honorable mentioned songs to add too.

1. Alina Baraz

I recommend listening to all of her songs off of her latest album The Color of You and also her EP collab with Galimatias on Soundcloud called Urban Flora.

My top three songs I would recommend are:

  • The One ft. Jada
  • Coming to My Senses
  • Floating ft. Khalid

2. Brent Faiyaz

I love songs that have the 90's vibes to them because they remind me of my childhood. If you're looking for that specific music genre I'd recommend listening to his album on Soundcloud called Sonder Son.

My favorite song would definitely have to be:

  • Talk 2 U

3. Goldlink

Goldlink has become one of my favorite rap artists recently because his sound is so different and I love his style of music and rap style which's calm, but still pretty upbeat.

My top four songs I would recommend are:

  • Crew ft. Brent Faiyaz & Shy Glizzy
  • Got Friends ft. Miguel
  • Meditation ft. Jazmine Sullivan & KAYTRANADA
  • Palm Trees (a remix of Alina Baraz/Galimatias song Fantasy)

4. Hayley Kiyoko

Hayley is an amazing underrated artist that deserves more credit. I love how her songs deal with the topic of same sex as well because I love songs even more when they have concepts and messages behind them.

The top two songs I would recommend:

  • Girls Like Girls
  • Sleepover

5. Jhené Aiko

Another amazing, but underrated artist. I've loved Jhené's music ever since I heard her EP Sail Out. From then on her music has transgressed into something amazing.

My top five songs I would recommend:

  • 3:16 am
  • Hello Ego ft. Chris Brown
  • Never Call Me ft. Kurupt
  • Bed Peace ft. Childish Gambino
  • Stay Ready ft. Kendrick Lamar

6. Khalid

When the song Location dropped, needless to say everyone fell in love with Khalid and his "smooth like honey" voice.

My favorite song by him at the moment would have to be:

  • OTW ft. Ty Dolla $ign & 6lack

7. Khalid & Normani

I hope to hear more collaborations from these two because this one is amazing:

  • Love Lies
sza, ctrl, and red image

8. SZA

I honestly recommend for everyone to listen to her album Ctrl. It's such an amazing album, and there's not one song that I dislike.

My seven fav songs off the album:

  • Doves In the Wind ft. Kendrick Lamar
  • The Weekend
  • Garden (Say It Like Dat)
  • Drew Barrymore
  • Broken Clocks
  • Pretty Little Birds ft. Isaiah Rashad

9. Nicki Minaj ft. Ariana Grande

I love that Nicki decided to switch things up and make a chill but amazing song like this, especially with a featured power house like Ariana.

Fav song:

  • Bed ft. Ariana Grande

10. 6lack

Last but not least! I've heard so much about this artist and the more songs I listen to, the more I fall in love with his raspy voice. I can't wait until he puts another album out.

  • Grab the Wheel w/ Timbaland
