Bebe Rexha – “Last Hurrah”
If your 2019 resolutions have been a challenge to keep up, “Last Hurrah” is a fun pop banger and beautifully stylized video about letting go of bad habits in what is definitely a night to remember. This is absolutely the song I want playing on the drive to the club and/or the aftermath to follow.
Gia Woods – “Jump The Fence”
This bold and catchy pop track comes from 22-year-old queer Persian songstress Gia Woods. It’s a perfect mix of playfulness, maturity, and empowerment with percussive snaps and energetic chants. It’s a good anthem for finding your own path, loving yourself for who you are, and paying no mind to the haters.
Chaka Khan – “Hello Happiness”
Chaka Khan, Queen of Funk and 10-time Grammy Award winner (talk about a flex), is back with her first album in 12 years. The title track is a tribute to the life-affirming power of music and is a great combo of the sass we love about “I’m Every Woman” mixed with the invention of “I Feel For You” guaranteed to make you groove.
Superfruit – “The Promise”
Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi of Pentatonix have just released “The Promise” from their side project Superfruit. The song is a majestic and uplifting synth-pop jam with a video starring Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon killing it on the ice. The 80s are back in full effect, and I’m here for it.
SARO – “Die Alone”
L.A.-based Saro will be releasing his new EP next month, kicking things off with a moody, yet satisfyingly therapeutic electro R&B single. With Valentine’s Day is behind us, “Die Alone” gets us back to the reality of relationship challenges at our most authentic and vulnerable moments.
