We are halfway through the year 2020! Only halfway, you say? Yes! But all things considered, there has been some good music from this wreck of a year. Here’s a list of 20 songs I love from 2020.
If there’s a song that you think belongs on this list, let me know in the comments.

“Be” by Mourning [A] BLKstar

“Clean Kill” by Coriky
“Finally // beautiful stranger” by Halsey
“Is There Something in the Movies” by Samia
“Mansplain” by Thick
“Never (Lagos Never Gonna Be The Same)” by Tony Allen and Hugh Masekela
