The 100 Best Singles Of 2018
From "Boo'd Up" to "Back To You," we rank the 100 best singles of 2018.

With releases from the likes of Ariana Grande, Backstreet Boys and Sean Paul, this week’s New Music Friday is a seriously star-studded affair. And, thanks to Becky G, it just got significantly sexier as well. Today (January 18) the 21-year-old rolled out her new single “LBD.” We already knew the track was going to be a banger based on several teasers that popped up on social media. However, the trap-influenced release exceeds expectations. “Every time you see me with my little black dress on, know you need me. Say you wanna freak some, I can see it,” she confidently coos on the chorus. “You wanna be grown – no Rated PG. Baby you should know that I ain’t easy.” Moving into Spanish on the bridge, the diva serves vocals and imbues the release with serious sass.

She does the same in the just-released lyric video, which follows in the footsteps of the cartoon-inspired cover. After closing out 2018 alongside Anitta and Maluma on a remix of “Mala Mia,” this is the perfect way to usher in the new year. With any luck, it will net Becky a well-deserved hit. If nothing else, it is all but guaranteed that the accompanying video will be a glamorous feast for the eyes. The triple threat (singer, actress and makeup ambassador) is on a hot streak when it comes to viral visuals. She dominated YouTube with “Mayores” in 2017 and “Sin Pijama” in 2018. Both have amassed more than 1 billion (yes, billion with a B) views each. Could “LBD” be next? Watch the lyric video below.
