Welcome to the second installment of our annual wrap-up, featuring the Top Dance Songs for 2014. While this year may have felt somewhat subdued in the EDM scene, it was not without its fun dance-craze songs like #Selfie by the Chainsmokers, which followed in the footsteps of previous hits like Eat Sleep Rave Repeat by Fatboy Slim and the Korean breakthrough monster hit Gangnam Style by PSY.
Absent this year were big-name releases from industry giants like Rihanna or Madonna. However, this allowed newcomers like Kiesza to break through with her debut song, Hideaway. The controversial Azealia Banks also made her mark with the critically acclaimed album and song, Chasing Time.
One memorable trend in the Top Dance Songs for 2014 was the celebration of the ‘booty.’ Meghan Trainor’s All About the Bass, Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda, and Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea’s Booty, all celebrated the body positivity movement.
Beyonce and Ariana Grande were two standout performers this year. Beyonce’s surprise album at the end of 2013 remained popular throughout 2014, while Grande emerged as a talented pop artist with a powerful voice, further contributing to the Top Dance Songs for 2014.
Keep an eye out for more in our series as we continue to unpack the highlights of this year in dance music. Stay tuned for surprises, and as always…ENJOY!
