New Music Friday!! WOW!! We’re just in awe of the number of new songs out this week that you could enjoy. We have the five above, and we’ll link the other four below.
So we’ll start with our first taste of Shawn Mendes since early 2019, and in his normal, perfect, entrancing fashion, he absolutely came out guns blazing with a surefire hit. It starts off quiet, and somewhat slow with a background choir and piano, but when that chorus drops, it feels like a waterfall of music and melody overcomes you. For the second song, we knew this could be a chart-topper from the first time we heard it when her album dropped. Now? It has MASSIVE potential with this Dua Lipa / DaBaby powerhouse collab. “Levitating” keeps on with the 2020 80’s vibe, has the perfect claps to dance along, and absolutely ascends when DaBaby goes full throttle in his verse.
Demi slows things down with her new single, bearing her heart to her fans. Who knows if this is from her most recent heartbreak, or if it’s just compiled from her years of fighting? But you’ll hear every ounce emotion when you listen to “Still Have Me.” Maren Morris taps into her country roots in “Better Than We Found It,” focusing on her life, hoping to look back and be happy with her life choices to literally leave the world better as she leaves it, pleading with America to come together to build it for the future. And finally, this Halsey song isn’t necessarily new, but this lyric video came out today, and with its simple guitar, dramatic beat, and rhythmic cadence, it’s completely worth a listen.
