20 MORE Amazing Songs About Butts

By Chris Carpenter (@chriscarplive)

Last year—after many grueling hours of scientific research and consultations with booty experts—we compiled a list of the 15 greatest songs about butts. However, with so much booty in this world (right, Kim Kardashian?) we think it’s time to wow you with 20 more great songs about butts. (Jingle, jingle. Christmas came early, booty lovers.) While our original list is still pretty great (awesome, even) – we regretfully left out a few wondrous jams dedicated to juicy derrieres. The booties were super sad about that. Our bad! And being alive during a booty-obsessed year (right, Amber Rose?)—where Jason Derulo begged butts worldwide to do some wiggling and J.Lo and Iggy Azeala’s moneymakers went cheek-to-cheek in the steamy “Booty” video—it’s only right that we pay homage to newfangled, booty-inspired, musical masterpieces.

Retail stores, cars, elevators…it’s everywhere! You’re reaching a breaking point until a song comes on that stops you dead in your tracks.
You know the one. It starts out with a cute little chime, a little jingle, opens up with brassy vocals and your eyes grow two sizes bigger just like the Grinch’s heart. You immediately don’t feel so bad maxing out credit cards, buying all the things and working all the hours to make Christmas happen. After 20 years, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” may very well be still be the greatest Christmas song of all time.
