By  | 

While National Friendship Day isn’t until August, we think it’s perfectly OK to celebrate your BFF any day. Right?! So blast this Playlist of the Week featuring songs by Rihanna, Bruno Mars, and Demi Lovato as you give your bestie a hug. Or something.

1. Rihanna, “Umbrella”
Show your BFF you’ll be there for her (or him) during the storms with RiRi’s infectious hit.

2. Demi Lovato, “Gift of a Friend”
A young Demi belts this sweet song about the beauty of having a friend.  It may be a bit corny, but come on, the girl can sing.

3. Glee Cast, “Lean on Me”
The ultimate friendship song gets a Gleeful makeover and we think this version hits all the right notes.

4. Drake, “Crew Love”
Drake is now, like, really famous, but he still knows what’s important — his crew. He loves his buds so much he’ll even spend 50k on a vacation just to see the smiles on his friends’ faces. It’s a nice gesture, but don’t try that one at home, kids.

5. Bruno Mars, “Count on Me”
In this ode to friendship, we find out that whether you’re stuck at sea or lost in the dark, Bruno Mars will be there for you. We’d take a buddy like him any day.

6. P!nk, “Raise Your Glass”
This lighthearted song about having fun is the perfect soundtrack for any time spent with your bestie. Turn up the volume and toast to the memories ahead. Like #summer2012!

7. Spice Girls, “Wannabe”
16 years later, this song still rocks and the message still hasn’t gotten old — friendship never ends.

8. Hannah Montana, “True Friend”
Sing along to this playful song by Miley Cyrus’ former alter ego. It’ll have you two thinking about the good times.

9. Christina Aguilera, “I Turn to You”
Serenade your pal with this Christina ballad that touches on the strength she gets from a good friend. Just make sure you’re not near any glass when you hit the high notes, mmkay?

10. Jason Mraz, “Song for a Friend”
Show your bestie how much you care with this soothing song about unconditional love.
