The FADER list their 107 favorite songs of 2015

FADER

Like last year, The FADER have listed their favorite tracks of the year. They picked 107, “because 100 just wasn’t enough.” It’s got two Drake songs in the top 10, and a Skepta song cracks it too (grime in general is pretty well-represented). A certain former bubblegum pop singer who’s becoming a popular choice for #1 is #1 here too. Mixed into the mostly rap/R&B/electronic pop list is Adele, some country representation from Chris Stapleton and Kacey Musgraves, lo-fi DIY from Sheer Mag and Girlpool, and a few other outliers. Check out the whole list, and a Spotify playlist of it, below.
