Honorable Song Mentions - 2017
It has been a challenge even to select honorable mentions but the list I've created largely centers on women artists, spanning genres from electronic to pop to R&B to hip hop. Some choices, like Stormzy, Charlotte Gainsbourg or Jlin easily could have made it on my top 50 list, were it not for the stiff competition. Other tracks, like Jorja Smith's aching cover of Frank Ocean's "Lost" were always supplemental. Though this track is great in its own right, it wouldn't have a place in a top 50 list. No matter the case, I've been inspired beyond measure by music in 2017. And I can't wait to see what singles are to come in 2018.
