The tracks that defined this crazy year!

2021 was a big year for obvious reasons, and while it hasn’t been the kindest year, it has been a stellar year for music.

As you might guess from the title of this article, the focus of this list is music that was massively popular — songs that ruled the charts, went viral on social media, or otherwise blew up in a big way. The best songs of 2021 provided a brief escape from the turmoil happening outside. They offered comfort when we needed it most, helped soothe our anxiety, and in many ways, helped bring us together.
