When We’re Feeling Happy
The song that took 2019 by storm — Señorita — was number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 list and captivated audiences across the world. It’s a flirty and romantic song that celebrates the artists’ relationship. Also, it’s an instant classic, in our opinion, and the perfect way to attract new love and romance in 2020.
Following four years of silence, Selena Gomez put out her third studio album Rare earlier this year. The first single from the album, Look at Her Now, is an upbeat tune that celebrates the singer’s post-breakup life. What’s more, it was on the top 20 charts all around the globe, and the music video has also been a huge success.
The Lion King remake was one of the most highly-anticipated animated movies in 2019. With an incredible A-list cast and a soundtrack to match, that comes as no surprise. Even though the artists included some new songs to bring something fresh to this old classic, the show-stealer was undoubtedly Circle of Life.
It’s a song that all of us know and love and that has stood the test of time. For those who want to smile every time their phone rings, the Circle of Life is the perfect ringtone.
One of the hottest remixes of the year, Calma has garnered over 1.7 billion views on YouTube alone. It has topped countless charts across the U.S. and South America, as well as Europe. Calma was one of the greatest dance hits in 2019, so it comes as no surprise that it is one of our top ringtones for 2020.
The breakout artist of 2019, Billie Eilish’s most popular and well-known song to this day is Bad Guy. It was the fifth single on her debut album When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, and it’s been nominated for Song of the Year in the 2020 Grammys. Even though Billie says she had no idea how popular the song would become, it’s a hit for the ages.
When We’re Feeling Down
Memories is the lead single on Maroon 5’s seventh studio album, which is set to be released later this year. It’s a slow and sentimental song that talks about the ones that we’ve lost and are no longer in our lives. Just a few weeks after Maroon 5 released their song, it peaked at number two on Billboard’s Hot 100 list.
Even though the song was first released back in 2018, it became a breakup anthem in 2019. The huge commercial success, Someone You Loved, topped the U.K. charts and even went triple platinum. It’s the perfect song for those who’ve had their hearts broken and want to heal. In fact, we chose Someone You Loved as one of our top ringtones for 2020 because of the powerful message of hope it sends.
In August 2019, Post Malone released his third studio album, Hollywood’s Bleeding. On that album, Circles became the most popular song and topped the U.S. charts for three weeks. What’s more, Malone came out with an intricate music video and now has almost 150 million views on YouTube. Circles is such a mellow song, and it’s perfect as both a ringtone and an alarm.
