Well, that’s it, folks, the twenty-tens are a wrap! Here in the States we saw the rise of Taylor Swift from country singer to pop queen of the decade, Cardi B taught us how to make money moves and oh so much more, and NeoSoul firmly made itself at home in the house of hip hop with Frank Ocean and The Weeknd.

For this latest installment of Fine Tunes, we wanted to zoom out and take you through biggest hits from around the world from 2010 – 2019. We scoured the globe (via the internet), spanning from Norway to South Korea, India to Iceland, and Australia to Angola, and pulled together 10 boogie worthy bangers for you. And for all you New Years Resolutionaers out there that are hitting the gym this month, we made sure to make this playlist high-energy to keep you moving, with one catch your breath song smack in the middle.
