Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” snags #4 spot on most played songs of the 2010s

You thought we were done with the ‘Top’ lists for the last decade? Think again. BBC Radio 2 just counted down their top 40 most-played songs of the last decade and we bet you can guess at least a few of them with your eyes closed (metaphorically, of course).

“The top 40 most-played songs are the sounds that radio producers and broadcasters have consistently played throughout the last decade and will evoke many memories for all of us,” said Peter Leathem, boss of the music licensing company which compiled the chart.

Six of the songs on the list actually remained from the ’90s including Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn.” But coming in at #4 is our own electronic darlings Daft Punk with their massive hit, “Get Lucky.”

“Get Lucky” finds itself in good company, sandwiched between Maroon 5 ft. Christina Aguilera, “Moves Like Jagger” at #3 and Justin Timberlake, “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” at #5.

See the top 10 below.

Timbaland Teases New Single With Young Thug

Timbaland teased a new single with Young Thug on his Instagram page today.

The legendary producer posted a video clip of himself inside his studio vibing the new song. Timbo x [Young Thug] coming soon,” he wrote. Timbaland is one of the most recognized figures in the producing game today and he has produced songs for some big name artists across many genres over the last two decades. He has worked with artists like JAY-Z, Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake, the late Aaliyah and more.

With his headphone on you, Timbo gets into the zone while lip-syncing to some of Young Thug’s lyrics. The beat has Timbaland’s signature written all over it and Thugger came through to compliment it with his signature flow. Timbo has been known to mostly worked with the OG’s in rap, pop, and R&B, but now is he working with some newcomers like the Atlanta rapper. Aside from Young Thug, who is good hands, he recently produced a single title “With Vengeance” for Ski Mask The Slump God featuring Offset. This is not the first time that Timbaland and Young Thug are working together, the two recently teamed up for a track, “Didn’t Do It”, off the producer’s King Stays King mixtape.

By the way, we are still waiting for that long awaited beat battle between Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. The two iconic producers have been teasing what they called a beat battle on Instagram, but so far nothing concrete on if it will really happen.

Timbo x @thuggerthugger1 coming soon…. ? ?: @marklashark
