    It's Memorial Day weekend and grills are firing up across the nation. And that means it is a good time to look back on the best music has offered up so far in 2016. It has been quite the year so far!

    We've seen releases from Kanye, Beyonce, Rihanna, James Blake, Chance the Rapper, and so many others. Just sorting through the albums released is tough enough, but to pick the top songs, that's a challenge, and turning that into a playlist, let's not even get started.

    Luckily, we here at ARTISTdirect enjoy that kind of endeavor. We have carefully analyzed the songs released so far in 2016 and picked the best of the lot. From there, we carefully crafted a playlist perfect for BBQing and spending a day out in the sun. It's also great for kicking back with some friends and drinking beer or getting the night started.
