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?!?

"Yellow" — Amine ft. Nelly

Amine's first full length studio album is one of our favorite feel-good summer releases. "Yellow", featuring Nelly, is insanely catchy and has lyrics that reference iconic childhood figures like Cruella de Vil and Spongebob.

"Creature Comfort" — Arcade Fire

The beat of this song, off of Arcade Fire's new album, Everything Now, is somehow simultaneously modern and reminiscent of 80's pop.

"I'm Better" — Missy Elliott feat. Lamb
Missy MFing Elliott is back and she's better. This is peak-Missy. Go ahead and put it on repeat for the weekend.

John Mayer is still lusting after a former lover, and this catchy, up-beat song is so charming it will make you do the same.
11 of 79
"Bambi" — Jidenna
Y'all this reggae, R&B love song is my favorite of the week. It's slow and intoxicating. And only Jidenna can pull of that all tan suit.
12 of 79
"Draco" — Future
This track is just so Future-y and the most popular one off his newly released album. Fun fact: the title of the song refers to a special type of firearm that is small enough to fit into a backpack, and good for an on-the-go kinda guy.

"Slide"— Calvin Harris feat. Frank Ocean & Migos
Are those three names you ever dreamed of collaborating? The full song is only available on Apple Music at the moment, but its a very vibe-y track that has a little bit of something for every listener.

"American Dream" — Khalid

Khalid is clearly an old soul, from his voice to his lyrics to just the general sense of nostalgia all throughout his debut album. Start with this track, then get lost in his low and powerful sound.

"Liability" — Lorde

Lorde's second single off her forthcoming album gives us an intimate glimpse into her private life. And a song full of raw emotion.
23 of 79
"Sleepover" — Hayley Kiyoko

We love Hayley Kiyoko because her honest lyrics encapsulate what lust and love is like for every type of relationship. Her latest track she sings about the unrequited love she has for her best friend.
