I don’t know about you, but I absolutely hate when I’m leaving a building and it explodes behind me, and I don’t have the perfect music playing over the moment. I’ve got everything else: the leather jacket, the heeled boots, dark sunglasses and bloodred lipstick. But it’s not complete without the music to go along with it. No worries, I’ve got you covered. The next time you make an explosive exit you’ll have the perfect playlist for your needs.
1. “Don’t Hurt Yourself” || Beyoncé feat. Jack White
“When you play me, you play yourself. Don’t play yourself.” Nuff said.
2. “Bitch Better Have My Money” || Rihanna
So simple, yet so good.
3. “Yellow Flicker Beat” || Lorde
Don’t mistake this one’s slow speed for calm, this track will definitely get you in the mood for a fight. It’s cold and calculating and the running hum adds a hint of menace.
4. “Shanghai” || Nicki Minaj
When Nicki Minaj was asked to describe this song she said it was, “Hard.” She was right.
5. “I Can’t Hear You” || The Dead Weather
The cool confidence of this track instills a self-certainty you want to bask in. And rather than slicing and dicing your enemies, it just makes you want to smirk at them and walk away. Which is more likely to keep you out of prison.
6. “Needed Me” || Rihanna
This track is great for building yourself up while simultaneously inoculating yourself against fuckboys. Also good for perfecting your slow motion movements.
7. “Klapp Klapp” || Little Dragon
With this song you can walk away from that building or you can dance out of it. It’ll be badass either way.
8. “Flawless” || Beyonce feat. Nicki Minaj
This remix is decisively more hard than the original, which was already pretty hard, but the combination of Nicki and Bey ensures maximum and explosive effectiveness.
Because we love you, we compiled all your new favorite songs in one playlist. Enjoy!
