Summer doesn’t officially begin until June 21, but everyone knows Memorial Day is when the party begins. In honor of your trip to the beach, hot pool party, or whatever you’re doing, here are tracks to make a hot weekend even hotter.

The gang’s all here, from Aussie pop princess Kylie Minogue to Swedish dance diva Robyn, gravelly-voiced Macy Gray to sliky-smooth Toni Braxton, and Gaga of course. So shake it up this weekend!
