    Is anything better than plugging in your headphones, firing up your music app of choice, and jamming out to that brand-new song you're obsessed with?

    Don't get me wrong; I love my go-to playlists. The classics are great. But something amazing happens when I hear an awesome new track for the first time. I am filled with anticipation, enthusiasm, and pure bliss as I wonder to myself, Will the chorus be as good as the hook? or Wait — did I just discover my new favorite artist?!?!

    New music is one of the best mood-boosters ever to me, and I want to share it with you. So each week, I'm pulling together the most popular (as in, they have over 100K listens within the first few days of their release) and most exciting new music out there for you to turn on, tune in, drop out to.

    Let's get listening. If you have any new pieces of musical gold, leave a link in the comments below. And be sure to check next Friday for a whole new slew of songs.

    "Carry On" — Tkay Maidza Ft. Killer Mike
    The young rapper and performer is big in Australia and she's about to blow up in the States, thanks to up-beat, eclectic tracks like this one. She's like a younger, more free-spirited M.I.A.

    "Kill For You" — Skylar Grey Ft. Eminem
    Eminem has rapped with vocalist and singer Skylar Grey before, and the two have created beautiful, intense tracks. This is no exception. It has the fragility of their collab on Dr. Dre's "I Need a Doctor" and the intensity of Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie." Make sure you listen with theme off the song in mind: the adventures of Bonnie and Clyde.

    "Heart Is Full" — Miike Snow (Mark Ronson Remix)
    Looking for a song to sit back, close your eyes, and chill out to? Here it is. Miike Snow is usually know for his zingy, electronic songs, like "Animal," but on this track he's more Tame Impala than deadmau5. It's a trippy, refreshing break from the other songs on this list.
