CHASING THAT FEELING – TOMORROW X TOGETHER
TXT’s latest comeback sees the boys play with 80s pop sound for a youthful and energetic track with a sentimental message.
TURN BACK TIME – ZACK TABUDLO AND VIOLETTE WAUTIER
Centering on heartbreak, this duet is sung from the perspective of a couple in the throes of pain post-breakup and takes the listener through the longing and regret after leaving a relationship that you tried hard to save.
ONE OF YOUR GIRLS – TROYE SIVAN
This 80s synth-pop cut from Troye Sivan’s new album that serves as a celebration of sex, dance, sweat, community, queerness, love and friendship tickles the ears in all the right places as it delves into those relationships we would rather keep under the sheets.
COURAGE (ACOUSTIC VERSION) – BEN&BEN
This stripped-back take evokes the power of surviving personal setbacks in life to the dreamers who are struggling to pull up the strength to confront an unforgiving world.
YOU’LL BE SAFE HERE – MOIRA DELA TORRE
Moira’s take on the classic song, which serves as the theme song for Can’t Buy Me Love, captures the sentimentality but in a somewhat modern lens.
BADDIE – IVE
If Kitsch had a sister, it would probably be Baddie. It’s a versatile departure from Off The Record.
PRETTY GIRL – ICE SPICE AND REMA
Sure, the song may just be two minutes long, but the killer beat and flow makes up for it.
JACUZZI – JAMES REID AND B.I
This dynamic fusion between James’ melodious vocals and B.I’s signature raps is as fun as it feels like being in a jacuzzi.
YOUR UNIVERSE – ARTHUR MIGUEL
From vocals to production, Arthur takes subtle sentimentality to a whole new level.
CAPABLE OF LOVE – PINKPANTHRESS
With strong production lifting her, PinkPanthress unloads on a special someone on whether or not they have the capacity to treat her right.
C’MON – JINI AND AMINE
We’re living for the house beat and anti-drop of the song. It’s clear the former NMIXX member turned soloist still has a promising career ahead of her.
BITTERSWEET – CLINTON KANE
With vocals as power as the production, this track speaks to how the pursuit of love doesn’t always lead to happiness.
IDWTEXTUBABY – KINDRED
The vibes are immaculate. If you get it you get it.
DANCE LIKE YOU – BENJ PANGILINAN
Encapsulating the essence of youthful excitement in a euphoric, the four-minute pop song sees the young musician grab his dancing shoes to sing about seizing the moment with a cheerful disposition in life and love.
4TH IMPACT – DISTORTED
This lively and energetic anthem thrills with bright striking synths, soaring soul-baring vocals and colliding rhythms as it focuses on a relationship facing a breakup and portraying a woman’s determination to assert her worth and stand up for what is right.
