Time to kick off 2018.
New Year's Eve is fast approaching and, if you're anything like us, you're anticipating a massive night full of fun and laughter with your loved ones.
One of the most important parts of any party is the music, so if you're prepping a playlist for the biggest party of the year, you might want to check out these recommendations.
Because Twitter is currently buzzing with song suggestions that, when timed up specifically to a penultimate part of the track, play the perfect line precisely at the stroke of midnight on 1st January, 2018.
From Beyoncé and Big Shaq to the Kween Of Kristmas, Kris Jenner, here are some of the best songs to play at 00:00 on New Year's Eve.
