Are you ready to throw some shapes to the best 2016 dance music around? Let's do it.
1. 'This Is What You Came For' - Calvin Harris & Rihanna
This single shot straight to No.1 in its very first week in the chart. There truly is no stopping this man when he starts making a beat. Add Rihanna's vocals to the mix and it is pure dance magic.
2. 'Ibiza' - Mike Posner
How could we not include this absolute banger? Mike Posner made a welcome return to the mainstream this year and his biggest hit to date 'Ibiza' knocked fellow dance act Sigala off the No.1 spot in March.
3. 'Faded' - Alan Walker
Alan Walker's career in music only started a few years back, can you believe it? The programmer found a track he loved on youtube and decided to give music production a go...as you can see, it went pretty well.
4. 'Nothing Like This' - Blonde feat. Craig David
2016 will forever be known as the year Craig David made his triumphant return to the top of the chart world. This collaboration with Blonde debuted in the chart on March 20th 2016.
5. 'Say You Do' - Sigala feat. Imani & DJ Fresh
Well, well, well...who do we have here. It's the two-time No.1 artist Sigala! Back in 2015, the Norfolk DJ bagged the top spot with his Jackson 5 remix 'Easy Love' and now he's back with another chart topper that'll have you dancing in no time.
6. 'Never Be Like You' - Flume feat. Kai
The Australian dance prodigy finally has some new music for us to sink our teeth into and we'll be forever thankful. Here we have the first single from his 2016 album 'Skin'.
7. 'Roses' - The Chainsmokers feat. Roses
Yes, this really is from the same guys that bought you the 'Selfie' song. The guest vocals come from Philadelphia born singer Rozes...you're going to love it.
8. 'The Girl Is Mine' - 99 Souls
THIS is what happens when you put together a Destiny's Child song with the classic 90s tune 'Boy Is Mine' by Brandy. It shouldn't work but it REALLY does!
9. 'The Right Song' - Tiesto & Oliver Heldens feat. Natalie La Rose
Oliver Heldens? Yes please. Tiesto? Now that's what i'm talking about. Add to that vocals by Natalie La Rose? You REALLY need to hear this!
10. 'The Best Is Yet To Come' - Luvbug
Whatever you think about us being biased, you are dead wrong! Luvbug (which includes our very own Marvin Humes) have given us a summer tune worthy of the hottest parties in the world. The best thing is...this is a trilogy!
11. 'Bang My Head' - David Guetta feat. Sia & Fetty Wap
What would an epic dance playlist such as this be without the French legend that is David Guetta? The 'Dangerous' DJ hired in help from 2016 chart stars Fetty Wap and Sia for one of the catchiest dance anthems of the year.
12. 'Fast Car' - Jonas Blue feat. Dakota
We didn't think Tracy Chapman's 'Fast Car' could get any better, well, we were wrong. Jonas Blue has transformed the classic into a fresh dance track which spent countless weeks in the top ten at the start of 2016.
13. 'Light It Up' - Major Lazer feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG
It seems like anything Major Lazer put their hands on at the moment becomes an instant hit. That was certainly the case when they teamed up with 'T.I.N.A' star Fuse ODG and newcomer Nyla.
14. 'This Girl' - Kungs
19 year old French DJ dominated the world of chart music when his breakthrough single 'This Girl' knocked Justin Timberlake off the No.1 spot in June 2016.
15. 'SEX' - Cheat Codes
Cheat Codes' re-imagining of Salt'N'Pepa's 'Let's Talk About Sex' is the perfect tune to start off any party. You ALL know the lyrics don't you. What a tune!
