Keep scrolling to check out the best lyrics to use as Instagram captions for the summer!
“I’m loving, I’m living, I’m picking it up. We turning it up.”
“No Tears Left to Cry” by Ariana Grande is a jam. In her latest single, Ari is totally vibing. In fact, she even sings that she’s vibing. The lyrics from this song are perfect for any Instagram picture that shows off your summer vibes — hanging poolside, surrounded by friends, indulging in multiple margaritas? These song lyrics work for anything.
“Had a man last year, life goes on.”
Post an Insta with this line from “Nice for What” by Drake, and basically any other lyric from this song because it’s all about female empowerment, being single, and living your best life. Other highlights include “Haven’t let her thing loose, girl in so long,” and “You’re showing off, but it’s alright. This is your life.”
“All summer, we’ve been in the ‘bu, ’68 Chevy with nothin’ to do.”
“Girls” by Rita Ora, Charli XCX, Bebe Rexha, and Cardi B is the 2018 version of Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl,” so you know it’s bound to be a hit.
“I’m ’bout my coins like Mario.”
Working your butt off this summer? Showing off your lifestyle? Take a hint from “I Like It” by Cardi B and kill two birds with one stone: allude to money with a classic video game reference. Another good go-to? “I like texts from my exes when they want a second chance.”
“Think I need a change before I go insane, love.”
“All Girls Are the Same” by Juice Wrld is guaranteed to be a top hit of the summer. Bonus points if you’re feeling some type of way about love and romance this summer because “AGATS” is all about not understanding love.
“Let’s float around like the fruit at the top.”
Pharrell and Camila Cabello teamed up for song of the summer “Sangria Wine.” Not only will it have you dancing poolside when it comes on the radio, but it’ll help you get all the likes on IG.
“Since you been gone, I been dancing on my own.”
Clean Bandit and Demi Lovato’s song “Solo” might be about heartbreak, but it’s still a jam thanks to the beat and awesome lyrics about “liking to party.”
“When you see her dance there’s a chance you might not come home from vacation.”
Speaking of dancing poolside, “MOVE TO MIAMI” by Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull will make you do just that. “She wanna be Eve, here’s an apple,” is another stand-out line a la Pitbull’s mid-song rap.
“Everywhere I go looks like the place to be.”
There’s nothing like a country song in the summertime and Sam Hunt doesn’t disappoint with “Downtown’s Dead.”
“Pour up ’cause I want a taste.”
“Familiar” by Liam Payne and J Balvin has tons of Instagram-worthy lines, both in English and Spanish!
“I need you to tell me, baby what you want just like the Spice Girls.”
Not only does “Playinwitme” by KYLE and Kehlani have a dope beat, but it also shout-outs the Spice Girls hit from the 90s. What more could you want in an Instagram caption?
