So dust off your low-rise denim and velour tracksuits – we’re embarking on a nostalgic journey back to when frosted tips were cool and flip phones were top tech. Let’s press play, shall we?


Hot In Herre – Nelly (2002)

When it comes to heating things up, Nelly knows how to bring the fire. Hot In Herre is a sweaty, energetic banger that will have you throwing caution to the wind, tearing up the dance floor, and singing along to the unforgettable chorus.


Toxic – Britney Spears (2003)

Speaking of tearing up the dance floor, no throwback playlist would be complete without the queen of pop herself, Miss Britney Spears. The addictive melody, seductive lyrics, and infectious energy of Toxic make it an instant party-starter every time – and a testament to Britney's pop music reign.


Bye Bye Bye – NSYNC (2000)

Featuring two of Britney’s Mickey Mouse Club castmates, NSYNC gave us Bye Bye Bye at the start of the decade, and it became an instant classic about moving on from your ex. The pop beats, synchronized dance moves, and catchy chorus made this iconic track an unforgettable part of the 2000’s music scene. 


Since U Been Gone – Kelly Clarkson (2004)

While we’re on the topic of exes… With Kelly Clarkson's powerhouse vocals and its empowering lyrics, the Grammy-winning Since U Been Gone still resonates with us today as a timeless breakup anthem.


Complicated – Avril Lavigne (2002)

Another song about complicated relationships? Avril Lavigne’s Complicated, duh! This punk-pop song burst onto the scene with its rebellious attitude and relatable lyrics, quickly becoming an anthem for misunderstood teens everywhere.


Crazy In Love – Beyoncé ft. Jay-Z (2003)

From bad relationship to good… Crazy In Love introduced the world to Beyoncé as a solo artist. With its contagious beat and the sizzling chemistry between Beyoncé and Jay-Z, this track is a certified 2000’s classic.


Umbrella – Rihanna ft. Jay-Z (2007)

But when it comes to iconic collaborations featuring Jay-Z, Umbrella also has to be at the top of the list. Rihanna's soothing vocals and Jay-Z's smooth rap verses created a pop masterpiece that is still fresh and captivating today.


Hey Ya! – OutKast (2003)

Who doesn’t remember the line “Shake it like a Polaroid picture”? OutKast's blend of funk, pop, and hip-hop catapulted this song to the top of the charts. Even after all these years, Hey Ya! still gets us up and moving.


I Want It That Way – Backstreet Boys (1999)

Okay, we know it’s technically 90’s, but this boyband classic spilled over into the early 2000’s and still deserves a spot on our throwback playlist. I Want It That Way is a timeless ballad that has us belting out the chorus whenever it plays.
