Intern Emily's Top 5 Songs to Play for a Night Out

Share on Nextdoor

Danza Kuduro

Don Omar, ft. Lucenzo

With its upbeat tempo and Puerto Rican flair, this song is a great way to kick off the night and get everyone motivated to have a good time. You might have no idea what he's saying or how to Bachata, but there's no shame in singing and dancing along anyway.



This Beyoncé hit will have you and your friends dancing around and feeling great while you're getting ready for a girls night out. It's everything you want to feel before hitting the bar or a house party — sexy, confident, and like you own the place.

"I Don't Care"

Icona Pop

If you're planning a girls night out, it's hard not to throw this one in the mix. Its amped-up beat and lyrics will have you feeling reckless, in the best kind of way, and ready to take on anything. Hopefully it will keep your spirits up and keep drunk crying at bay.


Iggy Azalea

So this summer it might've been played on the radio just a little too often, but there's still something about it that screams "fun!" The just-finished-getting-dressed-and-ready-to-start-drinking kind of fun. It's just a little cocky and has a whole lot of flair.

"2 On"

Tinashe, ft. SchoolBoy Q

Lastly, this hit is the perfect way to cool things down just before you head out the door. While it's not as upbeat as the others, its sassy lyrics will keep your happy buzz going and give you the same confidence that Beyoncé imparted at the start of the night. — Emily Corkum
