Obviously, Cardi B topped the list

Today, GIPHY released a list of its top performing GIFs from 2018, and it's making us feel seen. The most viewed GIF this year had upwards of 282 million views, and, obviously, it's of the most GIF-able celebrity: Cardi B.

There are more GIFs that reflect the viral moments from the year up until now, and others that have undoubtedly been shared multiple times in more private conversations to show feelings of excitement and love. Last year's list had a similar mix.

Below, we rounded up our favorites from the top 25, which we've definitely been using this whole year (and probably won't stop in 2019). See them, below.

Tyra Banks giving some pretty valuable life advice was number 25 on the list.

A GIF from The Room made number 17 because of the popularity of this year's The Disaster Artist, no doubt.

At number 16, this GIF was a popular result from user searches for "no."

Reggie Watts supporting us is all we needed this year; this was number 14 on the list.

The coolest dog you've ever seen was the eighth most-viewed GIF this year.

This GIF could be sent to anyone you love: friend, family, or partner. That's probably why it came in at number 5.

Colombian pop duo Alkilados were number 2 on the list. We wish we were this excited about anything.

And, of course, Cardi B being her best self made the top of the list. What else would you expect?

Cardi B, Avril Lavigne, and so much more

Every weekend, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK—your destination for the best of the best new music that hit the web over the course of the week. Because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week's round features 21 of our favorite emerging and established artists including Cardi B, Avril Lavigne, Tacocat, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

"Please Me" - Cardi B and Bruno Mars
"Please Me" will pair perfectly with all of the Valentine's Day candy you just bought on clearance. Trust me, there couldn't be a more perfect time to listen to this ultra-'90s R&B track.

Head Above Water - Avril Lavigne
I'm honestly jealous of whomever Avril is singing about on "Goddess."

Tacocat - Grains of Salt [OFFICIAL VIDEO] www.youtube.com

"Grains of Salt" - Tacocat
When I realized Tacocat was back, I literally turned around at my desk and yelled. It's a miracle.

"Can I Talk" - Caleb Steph
Caleb Steph's debut single proves that he's ready for the spotlight.

Betty - Betty Who
"You better recognize/ That you're wasting all my time" from "The One" is my new favorite response to every "photographer" on Tinder.

"Butterfly" - Kehlani
The only thing more beautiful than this cover art is Kehlani's voice.

SASAMI - Free (feat. Devendra Banhart) (Official Video) www.youtube.com

"Free" - SASAMI feat. Devendra Banhart
I would have never predicted a SASAMI and Devendra Banhart collaboration, but I am 100 percent not complaining.

Rex Orange County - New House www.youtube.com

"New House" - Rex Orange County
Alex O'Connor never fails to impress me with his soulful bedroom pop, and "New House" is no exception.

"Cuz I Love You" - Lizzo
Distorted guitar paired with Lizzo's belting vocals? Chills, literally. She did that!

"Heads Gonna Roll" - Jenny Lewis
Like if Stevie Nicks' voice met Father John Misty's lyrics.

"Get Well" - Donna Missal
Donna Missal tells me everything I needed to hear about breakups on "Get Well."

"Patient" - Monica Martin
Sultry and sweet.

"Whorey Heart" - TeaMarr
TeaMarrr's bouncy new song is an excellent roast of the kind of fuckboi we all know and hate.

"Ice Me Out (Remix)" - Kash Doll
Kash Doll shows that she knows her way around a beat on "Ice Me Out."

"Lips of Lips" - Tiffany Young
Definitely catch me driving around with my windows down this summer blaring "Lips on Lips."
