This 2021 Galentine's Day Playlist Will Keep You & Your Girls Hype All Day
Galentine's Day may look a lot different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Instead of attending big group dinners and parties mask-free, you might find yourself chatting with friends over Zoom miles away from each other or only meeting up with a handful of your closest besties while socially distancing. The situation isn't ideal, but as long as everyone's safe, that's all that matters. Besides, there's one thing that won't change: Having an awesome party playlist. Whether you're seeing your loved ones virtually or in person, this 2021 Galentine's day playlist is sure to get everyone hyped.
2020 may have been a dumpster fire of a year, but it was filled with a lot of good music, especially empowering female collaborations, like Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga's "Rain On Me," Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé's "Savage Remix," and Saweetie and Doja Cat's "Best Friend." Girl groups BLACKPINK and Little Mix also dominated with their respective records THE ALBUM and Confetti. The same year, Selena Gomez also made her highly-anticipated comeback with Rare — her first album since 2015.
