Lyrics:

I'm tryna put you in the worst mood, ah
P1 cleaner than your church shoes, ah
Milli point two just to hurt you, ah
All red Lamb’ just to tease you, ah
None of these toys on lease too, ah
Made your whole year in a week too, yah
Main bitch out your league too, ah
Side bitch out of your league too, ah

House so empty, need a centerpiece
Twenty racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face man I love my baby
You talking money, need a hearing aid
You talking 'bout me, I don't see a shade
Switch up my style, I take any lane
I switch up my cup, I kill any pain

Look what you've done
I’m a motherfuckin' starboy
Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy

Every day a nigga try to test me, ah
Every day a nigga try to end me, ah
Pull off in that Roadster SV, ah
Pockets overweight, gettin' hefty, ah
Coming for the king, that's a far cry, ah
I come alive in the fall time, I
No competition, I don't really listen
I’m in the blue Mulsanne bumping New Edition

House so empty, need a centerpiece
Twenty racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face man I love my baby
You talking money, need a hearing aid
You talking 'bout me, I don’t see a shade
Switch up my style, I take any lane
I switch up my cup, I kill any pain

Look what you've done
I’m a motherfuckin' starboy
Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin’ starboy

Let a nigga Brad Pitt
Legend of the fall took the year like a bandit
Bought mama a crib and a brand new wagon
Now she hit the grocery shop looking lavish
Star Trek roof in that Wrath of Khan
Girls get loose when they hear this song
100 on the dash get me close to God
We don't pray for love, we just pray for cars

House so empty, need a centerpiece
Twenty racks a table cut from ebony
Cut that ivory into skinny pieces
Then she clean it with her face man I love my baby
You talking money, need a hearing aid
You talking 'bout me, I don't see a shade
Switch up my style, I take any lane
I switch up my cup, I kill any pain

Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy
Look what you've done
I'm a motherfuckin' starboy

#1: Philip George & Anton Powers - Alone No More (2016)


Well, no surprise there then. Pretty much knew in February that this one would catapult right up there this year. Little did I know it would make it all the way to the top spot. Philip George, as well as his vocalist on this one, Anton Powers, hail from Nottingham, UK.

Philip George & Anton Powers - Alone No More (2016)



Lyrics:

Why do we argue the way we do?
Can't you see girl that I'm, I'm in love with you?
Don't run away from my love that you need
Don't turn away from my love you will see
You are the reason that I won't leave
And I want you to remain with me

No, I don't wanna be alone
No more, do you believe in love like I do?
No, I don't wanna be alone no more
Do you believe in love like I do?
No, I don't wanna be alone
No more, do you believe in love like I do?
No, I don't wanna be alone no more
Do you believe in love like I do?

Why do we argue the way we do?
Can't you see girl that I'm, I'm in love with you?
And it hurts, it hurts so bad to see you cry
To see you sad and blue
When I'm needing you the most
But you feel, you feel someone
When no one will take the place of you

Can't you see girl that I'm, I'm in love with you?

No, I don't wanna be alone
No more, do you believe in love like I do?
No, I don't wanna be alone no more
Do you believe in love like I do?
No, I don't wanna be alone
No more, do you believe in love like I do?
No, I don't wanna be alone no more
Do you believe in love like I do?

#2: Natema - Everybody Does (2014)

Another tune dating back two years, that hit me this year in Northern Cyprus. Instantly recognising INXS' 1987 track 'Need You Tonight', this remix just magnetically dragged me to to the speaker of the holiday beach club. Tetto Bononi & Luis Valente, originally from São Paulo, Brazil, but now based in London, worked the magic that has been heard at Koko, Pacha, Heaven, Cargo, Love Box, Carneval del Pueblo, ... - to name a few. This one has been a real ear worm for me this year.

#4: Shift K3Y - I Know (Tough Love Remix) (2016)

Lewis Shay Jankel (a.k.a. Shift K3y) is a relativ late addition to my Top 10. Hitting London's dance floors in the summer, it's since been playing up & down in Europe's clubs, and it has just been released beginning of December.
