A quick fix guide to the best tracks of 2018.

2018 has been an epic year for music. Twenty-Gay-Teen has seen the rise of openly queer musicians like King Princess, Hayley Kiyoko and Troye Sivan coming to the forefront, Cardi B rewrote the record books with her debut album and also created the biggest headlines via her fisty-cuffs with Nicki Minaj. Elsewhere, Kris Jenner made our musical moment of the year with her “thank u, next” cameo and Brockhampton cemented themselves as the biggest boyband since One Direction (in their own words).
