With the summer months just around the corner, it's the perfect time to start preparing your summer playlist. Whether you're heading abroad, chilling in the park with friends or seeing your favourite artists on tour, singing out those summer hits, we've got something for you. 

1) Jason Derulo - Colors

With the World Cup happening in 2018, we couldn't include the official song for the big event ahead. The song's universal appeal and celebratory spirit include lyrics that encourage unity and it's super catchy too - what's not to love? If you're looking for the perfect late summer gig, Jason is playing in the UK this September; you can get tickets here.

2) California Gurls - Katy Perry ft. Snoop Dogg

It's a complete throwback, but, we still love it as much as the first time we heard it back in Summer 2010 (yes, eight years ago)! There's nothing better than putting your headphones on and listening to this pop banger; we guarantee you'll get transported to a place where the grass is greener. Katy is heading out on her Witness Tour this June, playing numerous dates across the UK, you can buy those last-minute tickets here or enter our giveaway in collaboration with xAmeliaX for your chance to win your way in. 

3) No Tears Left to Cry - Ariana Grande

Ariana is back with 'No Tears Left to Cry,' and we know that this is going to be one of the biggest hits of the summer ahead. Ariana's last album, Dangerous Woman, was one of the biggest selling albums of 2016 and it's likely that the 'One Last Time' singer has another one ready for release later this year. While Ariana doesn't have a World Tour planned, we can expect an announcement very soon. 

4) Anne Marie - 2002

Anne-Marie has released new single '2002', and it's full of upbeat pop melodies with many nostalgic vibes that remind you of the year '2002' (of course)! Anne Marie is set to release her debut album later this year and is going to be supporting Ed Sheeran on his Divide Tour this summer. If you fancy seeing both Anne-Marie and Ed in one night, get a ticket here

5) Ed Sheeran - Happier

Have you seen Ed Sheeran's super cute puppet video for his new single 'Happier'? It's the same puppet used in the singers 'Sing' video back in 2013, and his new single from Divide gives off lots of laidback summer beats, perfect for when you're lounging in the sun. Ed Sheeran is playing numerous stadium dates across the UK this summer, be quick and get a ticket at face value here.

6) Beyonce - Formation

We were lucky enough to see Beyonce on her Formation World Tour back in 2016, and it was INCREDIBLE! The 'Crazy in Love' singer is On The Road again this Summer, with Jay-Z and it's going to be packed full of hits from both chart-topping artists. We'll never forget when Beyonce performed 'Formation' during Coldplay's set at the Superbowl, it was amazing. Plus, with her recent performance at Coachella being billed as one of the most iconic in history, it's the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a ticket to the OTR II Tour this June. 

7) Taylor Swift - Delicate

We're huge Swifty fans here at Seat Surfer. Taylor is heading out on her Reputation World Tour in just a few days before coming to the UK mid-June. The 'Delicate' singers latest tour is one of the most expensive concert tours in history and with Camilla Cabello and Charli XCX being the opening acts, it's going to be EPIC! 'Delicate' is our favourite song from the Reputation album, it's full of chilled vibes and brilliant lyrics. Grab tickets while you can here.

8) Eminem - No Place Like Home ft. Alicia Keys

Slim Shady is set to play two limited dates at Twickenham on 14th and 15th July this summer, tickets sold out within minutes, and it's clear that fans are left wanting more. We know the singer will deliver a career spanning set full of hits and we've got limited tickets available at face value here. His latest single 'No Place Like Home' features Alicia Keys and is certainly one of his most thought-provoking and political releases to date, it's perfect for switching up your summer playlist, go and give it a listen!

9) Shawn Mendes - In My Blood

Shawn's songs usually pull at our heartstrings, but we were surprised when the singer released his latest ballad, showing a more vulnerable side to him through tackling anxiety with merely gorgeous lyrics. We're sure this song will connect with so many people, and it's fantastic to sing along to, whether you're in the car with the roof down or on the beach with friends, this song will be remembered for many summers to come. Shawn is playing at various festivals across the UK this summer including Capital FM's Summertime Ball and Fusion Festival, make sure you catch him while you get a chance - he's fantastic life.

10) 5 Seconds of Summer - Youngblood

Our favourite punk rockers, 5 Seconds of Summer sold out their last world tour and their second album topped the UK and US charts, it's fair to say they're one of the world's biggest bands and they're back with a huge new song in time for summer. It's going to be everywhere within the next few months and we're sure there's a BIG tour coming soon - keep an eye on our social media pages for updates.

We hope that these great tunes will get you through what is going to be an excellent summer, packed with huge tours from the world's most prominent artists.
