Margaret Flatley/Seventeen

New year, new music: 2019 is already proving to be one of the biggest years for musical hits. With new songs from some of our favorite artists and those who are making their debut in the new year, there is bound to be multiple standout singles throughout the year.

These are the biggest songs of 2019...

Ariana Grande - "Needy"

She might've dropped a new single and an entire album at the same time, but there was one track that had everyone talking about how good it was. "Needy" is Ari at her best, with lyrics that speak about everyone's feeling of falling in love and vocals for days. She talks about her broken relationships and her anxiety, while also opening up about being something we all are: a needy human being.

H.E.R. - "Hard Place"

There's a reason H.E.R won Grammys against the likes of Toni Braxton and even The Carters. Her latest single, "Hard Place" is a triumph filled with lyrics about love and possibly heartbreak that are sing-along worthy. While her Grammys performance is filled with high-powered instrumentals and a guitar solo that would make Prince proud, the soft guitar and vocals in the studio version are still so incredible that you'll be playing it on repeat over and over again.

Florence + The Machine - "Moderation"

Ever since they first performed the track in early January 2019, fans have been waiting for a studio version and it certainly does not disappoint.

Whether a new album is on the way still remains to be seen, but any new song by Florence + The Machine is always a great one.
