7. “You’re the One” – Kaytranada feat. Syd
When Kaytranada first came out as gay in 2016, he made it clear that he didn’t want his sexuality to define all his music. As an innovative producer creating memorable work in hip hop and dance music, he wanted the music to speak for itself.
But nothing can bring out the pride in Pride Month like having two talented queers on a track together. The Internet front-woman, Syd, sings beautifully about the turmoils of love over a knocking Kaytranada beat in “You’re the One.” It’s the perfect song that’ll equally give you the feels if you listen to the lyrics, and it’ll have your booty bouncing at the same time.
