March: Top 20 (Part 1)

Welcome to March 2012's music Top 20, which is where I run through the top 20 songs I adored this month. Today we look at songs 20-11, so make sure to check back to find out my number one song of the month! Last Sunday I was lucky enough to get my hands on a ticket for Radio 1 Hackney Weekend! I got a ticket for the Sunday which means I get to see Rihanna headline among others! Therefore I have been rather excited about music the past few weeks and there has been a lot of new releases to get behind, the first batch of which we will begin with...


20. DJ Fresh (feat. Rita Ora) - Hot Right Now
This song was pretty hot this last month and was played incessantly on the radio so there was no escaping it! Upbeat and fun, it put a smile on my face which is all I really want from a good tune!
