After a 2 year wait, Season 3 of Bridgerton was dropped on Netflix and the fans old and new are obsessed. Unlike the previous two seasons and prequel mini-series, they split Season 3 into two parts and it seems to have paid off. The First Part of Season 3 gained 45 million views in its first week. And the all of the internet is talking about the steamy sweet romance between Colin Bridgerton & Penelope Featherington.

I’m a new Bridger-lover so I was blown away by the stolen glances, epic costumes, dramatic movements and amazing dialogue but I have to give credit to some of the modern connections with Bridgerton. They have really focused in on the most relatable things that you deal with in relationships (win money isn’t a problem) and focus on all the fireworks. And I especially love the music because they have made orchestral versions of popular hit songs. And this season is no slouch.

The Carriage Ride Bop

Now the most talked about scene from the first part was the Carriage Ride scene. I can’t post it because it gets very nsfw but I can set the mood…After years of denying his feelings, Colin chases down the carriage taking Penelope home and he professes his love. She has been the one waiting for this moment forever so they finally get out of the friend zone and proceed to kiss and get hot and heavy. The tune in the background is an amazing rendition of Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo, Afrojack & Nayer’s hit: Give Me Everything.

I can’t think of this song now without thinking of their hot and heavy scene. Now I know Netflix was impressed but even Mr. Worldwide was too:
The song is viral on TikTok and on it’s way to resurgence so that’s what I call a big pay off! Let’s check out some of the iconic throwbacks that have been Bridgerton’d!

  • Rihanna - Diamonds

    Every season, Queen Charlotte picks her diamond: the most accomplished, most beautiful, and most eligible maiden on the marriage market. So every family is fighting for this and I feel like Rihanna would have instantly won that title. This song appeared on Season 2.

  • Taylor Swift - Wildest Dreams

    Season one focused on the love story between Daphne & Simon the Duke. And so of course there love story and T-Swift can tremendously go hand in hand. Again if I posted the scene it appeared in we’d have to put a warning.

  • Miley Cyrus - Wrecking Ball

    Season 2 was really a mess as Anthony & Kate fought their feelings for so long. When it comes to frustration and angst I know Miley is the vibe. This was so well done and sounds very close to the original.

  • Sia ft. Sean Paul - Cheap Thrills

    Season 3 continued to kill it. When all the guests arrived to the Ball after Colin saved Penelope after the Hot Air Balloon mishap this song plays. The stakes were high for sure.

  • Maroon 5 ft. Cardi B - Girl Like You

    Season 1 was really the intro to the world. After Daphne was selected as the diamond then next step is the eligible bachelors visiting to win over her heart. It’s basically speed dating. So this song almost encompasses the whole show.
