25 Best Guys Songs For Instagram

Trying to choose a song for your latest Instagram post? It’s a little harder than you originally thought it was going to be, isn’t it?

From not finding the right vibes to forgetting the artist or song title of a song you heard recently, it’s easy to end up posting nothing when you can’t seem to find the right tune.

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered, because in this guide, we look at the best guys' songs for Instagram.

“As It Was” by Harry Styles

Song year: 2022

Newer songs are often better for social media posts (though as you’ll see later, sometimes it’s good to dig into classics too), and this tune certainly fits the bill.

Harry Styles’ “As It Was” has that throwback 80s new wave synthpop vibe we also know The Weeknd for (Coincidence? We think not).

No one knows exactly what the song is supposed to be about, but the two main theories are that it’s about 1) Harry’s relationship to fame, or 2) his relationship with Olivia Wilde. I tend towards the latter theory myself.

When things just aren’t the same in your life (but not necessarily in a negative way), there’s always “As It Was.”

Manly music

“Take My Breath” by The Weeknd

Song year: 2022

With slight Fleetwood Mac / Stevie Nicks vibes, The Weeknd’s “Take My Breath” sounds like the perfect song for a drive through the city at night (as is the case with many of his hits), or maybe even a detour to the club.

If you’re feeling like you’re on top of the world, and everything’s going right in your world, or if there’s someone you’re hoping will take your breath away, use “Take My Breath” in your Instagram post.

“First Class” by Jack Harlow

Song year: 2022

Jack Harlow’s “First Class” is a catchy R&B track with some serious sexual swagger. It’s almost impossible not to feel good when listening to this track, so it’s perfect for when you want to say to the world, “I’m living the life,” or “Look at me, I’m chilling with a drink poolside.”

For all those times you want to bring a little swagger to your Instagram profile, try “First Class.”

“Bad Habit” by Steve Lacy

Song year: 2022

Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit” is mostly about regretting never taking a chance on someone special. The song takes a turn, though, and it seems to indicate that the narrator ends up with the one he was pining over.

Besides projecting a sense of confidence, “Bad Habit” has a very danceable beat, especially towards the end of the song. It’s great for all those times you’re thinking about posting a dance video.

It could be a good song selection for when things suddenly turn from bad to good as well.

“Wait for U” by Future ft. Drake, Tems

Song year: 2022

Are you missing your girlfriend or boyfriend? Future’s “Wait for U” is a mellow, lo-fi pop-rap tune that expresses all the emotions you might feel when you’ve been apart from a loved one.

Even if you don’t want to be apart from your significant other, missing someone is still a great feeling. This song reminds you that it’s okay to miss someone and to remember to enjoy it.

“Enemy” by Imagine Dragons and JID

Song year: 2021

You might remember this tune from the animated Netflix series, Arcane. It’s got a typical Imagine Dragons beat (with heavy percussion, repeating lead line, a two-chord minor chord progression, and gang vocals), so no surprises there. If you’ve heard Imagine Dragons before, you’ve basically heard this song before.

Either way, the song is a great choice when you don’t feel like anyone is on your side. That’s probably not a message you’ll want to put out frequently, but we all take the hate now and then. The song will help you project a sense of strength when things don’t seem to be going right.

Meme songs

“Shivers” by Ed Sheeran

Song year: 2021

What are Ed Sheeran's songs about? Enjoying that special someone’s company, of course, and “Shivers” is no exception. It’s all about that special feeling you feel when you’re around that special someone.

From dance videos to bold declarations of love, “Shivers” is sure to give you the right vibes for your Instagram post.

“Die Hard” by Kendrick Lamar ft. Blxst & Amanda Reifer

Song year: 2022

Feeling introspective? Got your nose to the grindstone chasing your dreams? Have a desire to set your wrongs, right? Then Kendrick Lamar’s “Die Hard” will be the perfect jam for your social media. Give this one a go when you know you can be better.

“Golden Hour” by JVKE

Song year: 2022

The first thing that will strike you about JVKE’s “Golden Hour” is probably the backing track, especially the piano, which sounds as though it was taken from a dramatic fantasy film or video game score.

The song is mostly about how beautiful the narrator’s girlfriend is. So, for all those times you’re grateful for your girlfriend… this is a great tune.

Of course, you can choose songs based on vibes alone too, and this song puts off strong fantastical vibes.

“Double Take” by dhruv

Song year: 2019

Mellow, lo-fi vibes seem to dominate the charts, and dhruv’s “Double Take” follows in the same vein as many popular and trending tracks that appear in this guide.

As with Ed Sheeran or JVKE’s tunes, dhruv’s are mostly romantic. But if something’s got you “hooked,” this song could be just the thing you’ve been looking for too. If you’re feeling cheeky, you could use this song for a fishing-themed post too.

“Always” by Daniel Caesar

Song year: 2023

Daniel Caesar’s “Always” is a vulnerable confession of love with a chill backing track primarily featuring electric and acoustic piano. Is there someone in your life you think might be your “forever love?” Then this song is for you.

Alternatively, if you don’t want anything to change in your life because everything feels perfect at this moment, “Always” is a solid choice for your Instagram posts.

Social media tunes

“FukUMean” by Gunna

Song year: 2023

Kicking off with a trendy trap beat, Gunna’s “FukUMean” is mostly a stream-of-consciousness style rap track about indulgence and judgment.

The beat alone will probably inspire posts for your social media, though it’s also a great number for all those times you feel invincible.
