First and foremost, the six songs on this list are certainly from the 2000s, but the singers singing them are fortunately still active.
Therefore, if you want to listen to any of these songs live, performed by the following legendary singers, you can buy tickets for events and enjoy their electrifying concert atmosphere.
But before you do so, we’ll see which are the six mega-popular tracks from the early 2000s that are still popular all over the globe.
Of course, it’s more than challenging to pick only six from so many hit songs from such a productive period in the music industry, but let’s try and begin our journey.
Toxic – Britney Spears
Arguably the most popular Britney Spears track, ‘’Toxic’’ has withstood the test of time and is still popular worldwide.
This song is a fantastic mix of almost everything – surf guitar, techno, violin notes, and even Bollywood strings. It goes without saying that Britney Spears’s breathy vocals make this dance hit even more pleasing to listen to.
Did you ever try to write lyrics for songs and notice how challenging it can be? Well, that’s why only a few songs stay popular for an extended period, like ‘’Toxic’’. Also, Britney’s super spy dancing moves in the music video made this track one of the best pop songs of all time!
Crazy In Love – Beyonce & Jay-Z
Beyonce has established herself on the music scene because of many reasons, from her beautiful singing voice to her fantastic dancing abilities. Her first success came along as a member of the band Destiny’s Child, but her popularity exploded even more when she began her solo career.
In short, ‘’Crazy In Love’’ is the lead single from Queen Bey’s debut album, which also features musical bits from Jay-Z back in the day when these two were just dating. This track put her on the map forever, and it’s not surprising that it’s still mega-popular worldwide.
Hips Don’t Lie – Shakira feat. Wyclef Jean
‘’Hips Don’t Lie’’ came out in 2005, and it’s fair to say that Shakira hasn’t stopped dropping music hits since then.
However, this track is the one that made her highly famous all across the globe, and her fans still adore it when she performs it at her new live concerts.
This song is actually on her 7th album, but her 2nd English-based one and a fun fact is that it features Wyclef Jean from the Fugees. It’s fascinating that this track was at the top of the music charts of more than 55 countries, including the United States, for two weeks.
Complicated – Avril Lavigne
If there is a singer that was part of many young people’s childhoods, it’s Avril Lavigne.
Avril also had some other massive hits in the early 2000s, such as ‘’Girlfriend’’ and ‘’Sk8r Boi’’, but her biggest hit was ‘’Complicated’’ from 2002. It’s an excellent track about the power of being yourself and the beautiful sense of calm that this attitude brings to a person, which is highly important for young people to learn.
The track was at the top of the Adult Top 40 chart by Billboard for sixteen weeks, so it’s not surprising why fans still remember ‘’Complicated’’.
Take Me Out – Franz Ferdinand
Of course, this list will include other music genres since the early 2000s weren’t only about pop music.
One such song is ‘’Take Me Out’’ by Franz Ferdinand, which made this Scottish indie rock band famous all over the world and provided them with the chance to have worldwide tours. Some may say that Franz Ferdinand is a one-hit-wonder band with this 2004 song, but they have many other great songs; this one is just the most popular one.
‘’Take Me Out’’ has a tremendous rock beat after the first verse, so it’s excellent both as a rock and party tune.
Drop It Like It’s Hot – Snoop Dogg feat. Pharrell Williams
Last on the list but equally popular, ‘’Drop It Like It’s Hot’’ is a song from 2004, but it’s so fresh and popular that it seems like it was released yesterday.
Snoop Dogg and Pharrell can always make rap and hip-hop songs that also sound super funky, and the same applies to this mega-popular track. ‘’Drop It Like It’s Hot’’ is bouncy yet chill, and it’s also fantastic for celebrations, parties, and any type of fun musical activity with your friends.
In addition, it’s more than impressive when Snoop performs it live at a concert since the entire audience dances together with him, creating a beautiful positive atmosphere.
Since these six songs are still mega-popular worldwide, these artists are still performing them at their live concerts almost always. Therefore, the only thing remaining for you to do is to buy concert tickets as quickly as possible and enjoy the early 2000s vibe!
