It's hard to believe, but Summer is already nearly upon us! And you know what that means -- ROAD TRIP! Time to start collecting the perfect jams to accompany your long drive with your besties or even just by yourself! Crank up these five tracks for the perfect Summer roap trip!


1. "I’m the One" (Feat. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, & Lil Wayne) – DJ Khaled

The song of the Summer is here, and DJ Khaled is setting the tone. This perfect pool track has the ultimate collaboration, including Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, and Lil Wayne. It debuted #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is certified platinum. Hot!




2. "There’s Nothin Holdin’ Me Back" – Shawn Mendes

Let’s roll down the windows and sing along to Shawn’s “There’s Nothin Holdin’ Me Back" from off his Illuminate album. It’s different from his typical sound, but we definitely love it. It has more of a dance feel and is good for those long seat jitters.




3. "Swish Swish" (Feat. Nicki Minaj) – Katy Perry

Katy Perry’s fun diss track featuring Nicki Minaj is our new favorite. You might be in the car, but the song will instantly transport you to the club.




4. "Heavy" (Feat. Kiiara) – Linkin Park

Linkin Park has joined forces with "Gold" singer Kiiara for a radio-ready song. Many know Linkin Park as the heavy metal band, while they now have bridged the gap and tied in pop elements with their track “Heavy”. The song is off their album One More Light, which released on May 19.




5. "Malibu" – Miley Cyrus

Beach road trip? We got you covered. Miley’s “Malibu” track is sure to get you read for the ultimate travel day. The song actually came to Miley while riding in an Uber – fits perfectly with our road trip theme. The song will also be on Miley’s new album, which is currently in the works.




What’s YOUR go-to road trip song?
