10 Best Dance Songs We Heard in February

We get it: There's so much music out there, it's impossible to listen to it all. So the Fuse staff compiled the best EDM tracks released this month

1 / 10

Jack Ü ft. Missy Elliot & Kiesza, "Take U There (Remix)"

One of the best songs of 2014 got even better. Perhaps reinvigorated by her spotlight-stealing appearance at the Super Bowl halftime showMissy Elliott lays down her hottest verses in years here. Some MCs might get lost inside Skrillex and Diplo spastic beat, but this remix is just another reminder that Missy is still one of rap’s reigning queens. (Plus, try and beat that '80s reference: "When you touchin' on my tushie, Salt-N-Pepa wanna 'Push It.'")

2 / 10

Calvin Harris & Tinashe, "5AM"

He'll meet you in the "Summer" and at "5 AM." Dance giant Calvin Harris joined forces with fierce up-and-comer Tinashe for this jam, one that documents the insatiable thirst you've got when you really just want to be near the object of your desire...even in the wee hours of the morning. Tinashe's vocal performance seems to channel the goddess Rihanna here; there's definitely an interesting timbre to her voice that we haven't heard before. It's rumored the track was sent to Rih's camp to be included on her upcoming album. Why would she pass?!

3 / 10

Sameblod, "Flourish"

The Swedish electronic duo dropped this sparking slice of dance-pop that mixes modern-day rave synths with throwback house vocals. It's the latest taste of their debut album, expected later this year. Consider us officially pumped.

4 / 10

Steve Aoki & Moxie, "I Love It When You Cry (Mokoki)"

EDM vet Steve Aoki teams up with underrated pop star Moxie for an offbeat love song where the New York singer-songwriter sings, "It's sexy when you're choking up, I love it when you cry / It shows that you're alive / I love it when you cry / The tears bring out your eyes."

5 / 10

Madeon & Passion Pit, "Pay No Mind"

It's 2015 and Passon Pit are back in our lives (thank god!), but it's French producer Madeon that makes "Pay No Mind" one of our favorite dance picks of the month. There's something soulful and retro here, a cool '80s synth jam that feels vintage but not outdated. This is easily one of the most parent-friendly tracks on this list, and that's never a bad thing.

6 / 10

Alesso & Roy English, "Cool"

One of the biggest injustices of modern-day pop music was when Kylie Minogue's 2010 single "Get Outta My Way" didn't become a worldwide smash. Swedish DJ and "Heroes" producer Alesso gives the near-perfect pop song a second life with his reinterpretation "Cool." The track features Minogue's glossy production with L.A. funk singer Roy English laying down a new vocal line.

7 / 10

Morgan Page & Lissie, "Open Heart"

You can always count on Morgan Page for an emotional slice of EDM, and his latest single featuring folk-rock singer Lissie is no exception.

8 / 10

Chris Brown & Tyga, "Ayo (Jason Nevins Remix)"

Like any major jam, Chris Brown and Tyga's club banger "Ayo" has inspired remixes aplenty. This bad boy rivals the original for sure.

9 / 10

4Minute, "Crazy"

Just two months into 2015 and 4Minute already have crafted one of the biggest club bangers of 2015. The girl group uses trap beats, Middle Eastern-inspired flutes and throbbing synths in this ode to going cray. Can you think of a better weekend anthem?

10 / 10

Zedd & Selena Gomez, "I Want You to Know"

The hottest new couple in pop music these days is former-Disney princess Selena Gomez and EDM mastermind Zedd. The unlikely pair have been posting adorable shots on Instagram, documenting their relationship both in the studio and out on the town, for a while now. "I Want You to Know" is our first sample of the musical side of the relationship, and it's an emotional roller coaster of a dance track. Just wait for that drop!
