Break out your dancing shoes! Thomas Rhett, 25, may be a country singer, but his party playlist is packed with pop songs that are sure to get you moving and grooving. The singer, whose sophomore album, Tangled Up, is out Sept. 25, shared his top party tracks exclusively with Us Weekly. Take a peek at his favorites from yesterday and today.
"Lose Yourself to Dance" by Daft Punk: "The perfect song to start out a night with friends and get everyone moving."
"SexyBack" by Justin Timberlake: "JT has swagger for days. The moment this song kicks in, you want to slip into a tux and hit the dance floor."
"Where Are Ü Now" by Jack Ü (Skrillex and Diplo) and Justin Bieber: "You can't deny it's great EDM once that drop kicks in after the verses. It makes you want to move."
"Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars: "This is one of those songs you can't help but move to. We put it in our set this year for that very reason. I have yet to meet anyone from any age group who doesn't love this song."
"I Want You Back" by The Jackson 5: "This song is a classic. It's like a 46-year-old 'Uptown Funk' in that it's a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. It's still mind-blowing how talented Michael Jackson was at such a young age."
"Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye: "This is for the end of the dance party as things are winding down. This is one of mine and my wife's favorites. It is the ultimate slow-dance song."
"Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" by Michael Jackson: "This track is so infectious, especially the horn part behind the chorus. I can't wait for the day I can bring a whole horn section out on the road with me."
"Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" by James Brown: "Like with Michael Jackson, it's tough to pick just one James Brown song but this is probably my favorite. I watched the documentary Mr. Dynamite recently and was blown away. Without James Brown, we wouldn't have half the other artists on this playlist."
"Tootsee Roll" by 69 Boyz: "This is a straight-up 1990s skating rink jam."
"Crash and Burn" by Thomas Rhett: "When I first heard the demo for this song, it instantly made me want to dance, even though the lyrics are pretty sad. It's been a huge hit single for us. It's so much fun to do this live and see the crowd go crazy every night."
