My Top 5 Favorite Teen Boy Pop Songs Right Now

19 Jun

Because this is definitely its own genre. Whether you’re a seasoned Belieber or a hip-hop head just tryna find your softer side, here’s a sampling of songs on my playlist right now.

5. Austin Mahone – Say Somethin

Not that new, BUT it’s still stuck in my head, which is what counts. If you don’t already know about Austin Mahone, now you know.

4. The Wanted* – Warzone

A boy band in a desolate landscape with a piano and things that are on fire – sounds familiar.

3. One Direction – One Thing

I really don’t understand why 1D is more popular than The Wanted, but this song a classic in the teen boy pop genre.

2. Justin Bieber – All Around the World

Video is lackluster, but the song is catchy and includes a verse from Ludacris where he says stuff like “hate may win some battles, but love wins in the end.”

1. The Wanted – I Found You

Protagonist Nathan Sykes chumps a girl by making out with her to steal a key out of her pocket à la Britney Spears the flight attendant in “Toxic.” I’m now realizing that ripping off 2000’s era pop videos seems to be a recurring thing for the boys, but just let’s call it “inspiration” and not “unoriginality.”

*Technically, all members of The Wanted are actually grown-ups in their early- to mid-twenties. They still belong on this list, though, let’s be real.
