If there's one thing that separates a good New Year's party from a great New Year's Eve party, it's the presence of caviar, or maybe a nice onion dip.
But if there was a second thing that elevates a New Year's Eve party from good to great, it's an unbeatable playlist. After all, not just any music will do on a night such as this; it's gotta be a crowd-pleasing collection of the year's best tunes to keep hands clappin' and toes tappin'.
For the ultimate song selections, we consulted south Florida's legendary DJ Irie. As the official DJ of the Miami Heat, Irie has been rocking crowds at the American Airlines Arena with his unbeatable blend of beats, and over the last five seasons, he's become well-known for getting the Heat's legions of fans out of their seats and onto their feet.
So which songs did Irie pick for his ultimate New Year's playlist? Well, after he laid out his onion dip and caviar, here's what he chose:
"Timber" – Pitbull feat. Kesha
"Holy Grail" – Jay Z feat. Justin Timberlake
"Treasure" – Bruno Mars
