THE PLANET – BTS
Sure, it may be a promo song, but BTS still imbues the track with that fun pop energy all while sharing a message on saving the environment (as they should). And we’ll always welcome OT7 songs in this new era of the group.
A YEAR AGO – JAMES ARTHUR
If regret was in the form of a song, it would probably sound like James Arthur’s new single. In just under three minutes, the crooner lays down his feelings of missing his ex and wishing she knew how he felt.
SA PAGLAYAG – SARAH GERONIMO
Never underestimate Sarah Geronimo’s power to get us in our feels, as evidenced in her new single that has us feeling like we’re about to go on a sentimental journey.
SUMMER BABY – JONAS BROTHERS
How appropriate for the Jonas Brothers to release this song in the middle of summer. This cut from their recently released album, The Album, is fun summer love.
SPICY – AESPA
If we could inject Karina’s intro from this Y2K pop song, we would. It’s very much aespa’s world.
HARE HARE – TWICE
At this point, it’s practically impossible for TWICE to disappoint with their Japanese releases. It’s giving fun summer party vibes.

143 – MAYONNAISE

FROM THE START – LAUFEY
This song sounds like one you’d hear at a hotel lounge, but in the best way possible. This bossa nova inspired song about being in love with your best friend…who is in love with someone else still manages to tickle the heart.
PARTY GIRLS – VICTORIA MONET AND BUJU BANTON
If Victoria Monae isn’t on your playlist yet, you’re missing out with her brand of R&B magic. With Party Girls, she delivers a sensual anthem for all the baddies out there who like to get down.
INFINITY REPEATING – DAFT PUNK, JULIAN CASABLANCAS, AND THE VOIDS
Before you get too excited, no, Daft Punk has not reunited. Instead, they dropped the 10th Anniversary Edition of their seminal Random Access Memories album which contains unreleased tracks and demos. Still, any new Daft Punk material is worth celebrating.
STUCK IN SAN ANTONIO – A KID NAMED RUFUS
Inspired by their own breakup, this track is a poignant and emotionally charged song that reflects on a tumultuous relationship with a fresh, rock-infused twist.
