Party people. The time has come. No matter their usual social leanings, there isn’t a person on Earth who doesn’t want to have fun on New Year’s Eve. Ringing in the New Year is a celebratory occasion, so you’ll need an excellent playlist. We got this one exclusively from celebrity spinner DJ Ruckus. The man played one of Diddy‘s legendary parties when he was still a teenager, so you know he’s good. Read on for his recommendations, then listen to the music below!
Avicii – “Wake Me Up”
Beautiful and beloved record to which everyone can sing along.
Eminem featuring Rihanna – “The Monster”
Eminem and Rihanna. Need I say more?!
Robin Thicke featuring T.I. & Pharrell – “Blurred Lines”
One of the songs of the summer and on New Year’s, I love to play music that let people relive the last year.
Lana Del Rey vs. Cedric Gervais – “Summertime Sadness”
Doesn’t matter the season—this song makes people sing along and dance!
Madonna – “Holiday “
A timeless choice for any big holiday!
Kanye West featuring Rihanna – “All of the Lights (Joel Fletcher Remix)”
Incredible remix of a beautifully celebratory song. Joel Fletcher updates it into a real Melbourne party smash! One of my top tracks right now.
Rich Homie Quan – “Type of Way”
My favorite hip-hop track of the moment.
Britney Spears – “Work B**ch”
Pop meets dance. New Year’s Eve gold for a DJ.
DJ Snake featuring Lil Jon – “Turn Down for What”
The best hip-hop and dance crossover track yet.
Chuckie & Glowinthedark – “NRG “
Brand new smash from two of my frequent collaborators. Will be playing this on New Year’s and months to come.
Hardwell & MAKJ – “Countdown”
Hard, pounding, dance floor banger from two terrific producers. You can guess, from the name, what time I’ll be playing this one!
Daft Punk – “One More Time”
Classic party tune. Will be playing this on New Year’s in 2020.
