Everyone knows a successful New Year's Eve party is contingent on the music. So this year, we solicited the help of DJ Ruckus, who's manned turntables at Diddy's birthday party in Morocco (at the ripe young age of 16), Adriana Lima's private after-party for this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, and miscellaneous high-profile events with his insanely cool cousin, Zoe Kravitz. Suffice it to say, this guy knows a good song.
To help you ring in 2016, Ruckus hand-picked 14 tracks, ranging from Drake and Future's "Jumpman" to Coldplay's "Adventure of a Lifetime" that'll have you pumping your fists like you're The Situation on the Fourth of July. "Music is always important, but on New Year's Eve it's ten times more so," he says. "The DJ's job is to make a montage of all the hottest songs of the year and, most importantly, bring back some great oldies for nostaglia's sake." Without further ado, here's his full playlist.
