You may remember I did a post a couple of months ago called songs I’ve been loving lately and I thought I’d make another! These are songs that have been released recently over the past couple of months so they’re all pretty new and I thought they were worth talking about / sharing with you all – let me know if you’ve heard any!
(p.s. there’s 9 songs here not 10, I don’t know what’s wrong with me but I can only ever seem to find 9 things for a list and never 10, you know the drill – yell at me for false advertising)
fools – madison beer
So, girly finally released her EP (feels like we’ve been waiting for years) titled ‘As She Pleases’ and this is the first song on there – though it’s the one I love the most. I’m obsessed. I’ve had it on repeat ever since it came out. I love the whole vibe of it, I can’t really describe it but it’s just so cool and sounds really summery, without being summery at the same time. I don’t know. I can’t describe sounds okay. Just have a listen, you’ll know what I mean. Tell me how great it is.
unforgettable – zhavia
I actually learned about Zhavia through this video that came up on my Youtube recommendations (it has over 16M views so it looks like it did for a lot of others as well) and instantly I was hooked. Zhavia was a contestant on an American talent show called The Four, but since I live in the UK, I couldn’t watch it. I was keeping up to date with all of her performances on The Four’s Youtube channel until they started releasing the clean-cut studio versions onto Spotify – one of them is Unforgettable by French Montana ft. Swae Lee and Zhavia’s version has me hooked. I’ve had it on repeat ever since. I’m obsessed with her. AND SHE’S ONLY 16.
say something – zhavia
Again, the same as above – this cover is incredible. I’ve never really been a fan of this song, sometimes I feel like really good songs are given to the wrong artists if that makes sense and so I’ve never really warmed to this song, but this cover made me cry. Honestly the best version I’ve ever heard, the live version is so emotional but they only showed about 60 seconds of it on the show and so I had to wait until they released the whole version onto Spotify, and here it is.
10,000 hours – prettymuch
I feel like every song PRETTYMUCH release is just an instant hit, like seriously, they cannot released a bad song. It just doesn’t happen for them, everything they release is such a jam. 10,000 Hours is their latest track and they’d only ever performed it live before this and so everyone was stuck listening to the crappy live version (with the screaming girls and bad audio) until FINALLY they released it on Spotify. Wahoo!
inside out – camila cabello
So queen Camila over here finally released her debut album after we’d all been waiting forever and this is one of my favourites off the album. It’s such a bop and I love the whole reggae vibe it has going on, it’s so summery and just ugh, I LOVE it, IT’S SUCH A BOP.
overload – john legend ft. miguel
Now, this is not a new song (came out in 2016) but I just had to mention it because it’s so good. As we all know, John Legend has an incredible voice and Miguel is just, well, he gets you in your feels basically. So together this song is just the best (not going to lie though, it’s Miguel’s feature that has me hooked on this, I’m obsessed).
heartbreak – christian leave
A little angel I cannot belieeeeve I’m writing a post mentioning one of his songs, I was literally one of the first people to follow him on Vine (remember Vine guys rip) and so now he’s actually making and releasing songs and doing all this stuff is just so great, this song is so cute and really deserved a mention, I love it – it’s definitely the type of music I normally listen to, I love this sound so much.
backbeat acoustic – dagny
Again this is not a new song (came out in 2016) but I actually first heard this song a couple of months ago in one of Ellen Fisher‘s Youtube videos (beautiful vegan mama living in Hawai, you should all check her out) and absolutely fell in love with this song. I had to pause the video and google what it was straight away and ever since, I’ve had it on repeat non stop. There is an official version of this but I prefer the acoustic so much more (the acoustic was the one Ellen used in her video), I feel like everything just sounds so much better and you can hear Dagny’s voice a lot more – it sounds beautiful. This song makes me feel so happy and it reminds me of Ellen’s video which was also incredibly beautiful, so this song just gives me wonderful feelings whenever I listen to it. (the video I’ve included here isn’t the official audio that’s on Spotify, so check that one out to know what I’m talking about!)
want you back – 5sos
And last but not least, 5SOS. No, this isn’t a Jackson 5 cover, but the new single that they’ve finally given us after being MIA for the last 800 years. It’s definitely a new sound and a new direction compared to their older music so you can really see where they’re trying to go with things this time around and I really love it, it’s super catchy – this is how you do a comeback. I used to be such a 5SOS stan back in the day (rip 2012-2015 me) and it was really nice actually because the guys haven’t released music for such a long time now and as I was playing this I just thought man, I’ve really missed 5SOS – I’m glad they’re back on my playlists again.
And there we have it loves! I hope you like these – definitely give them a listen, they’re super catchy. Let me know if you’ve heard them!!
All my love,
