Feels on FEELS. the SONG list: september is here.
Perfect Illusion by Lady Gaga // Gaga is BACK. Key CHANGES. COMPLETELY different from any other Gaga single dropped before. It’s ROCK meets POP meets Gaga’s insane vocals. THANK. YOU. LADY. GAGA. and Mark Ronson, and Bloodpop, and Kevin Parker.
Freedun (feat. Zayn) by M.I.A. // I’ve been a fan of M.I.A.’s work ever since “Paper Planes.” Her video for “Borders” was wrongfully skipped by the VMAs, but M.I.A. doesn’t let it get her down bringing in Malik for this “Swagger Man” song. You’ll be singing it all day long.
Influence (feat. Wiz Khalifa) by Tove Lo // Following her infectious, pulsating “Cool Girl,” Tove Lo sticks to the same format for this one. Giving a MAJOR upgrade to her lyrics and a verse from Wiz Khalifa, this song is SoulCycle tap-back ready.
Guidance by Travis Scott // The production feels like a Pablo track and Scott slides through the song every second of it. It begs to be blasted through your car speakers with the windows rolled all the way down. It’s a suave banger.
Show Me Love (feat. Chance the Rapper, Moses Sumney, & Robin Hanibal) by Hundred Waters // Symphonic melodies and cool beats, all beach ready. A chorus full of air and atmosphere. Hundred Waters crafts a near perfect track.
The Greatest (feat. Kendrick Lamar) by Sia // I have nothing but good things to say about Sia. Her performance at Coachella back in April still blows my mind. Accompanied by another brilliant music video featuring Maddie Ziegler, Sia weaves together another hit.
Radio by Sylvan Esso // New singles seem to be sprouting up everywhere this September. Esso’s record makes you want to get ready to go out, do a little dance in your Stan Smiths, and bust out some disco hands on your jog.
Chained by The xx // I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of this song. Also because Jamie XX rocked my socks at Made in America last weekend and I just want another album from The xx. Like THAT GUITAR IN THE BRIDGE?! pure magic.
Signal by SOHN // SOHN. SOHN. SO. SOHN. GOOD. His debut album still sits on my iPod with heavy rotation. As yet another lead single on the list, this track expands, minimizes and enchants all in 4 minutes and 26 seconds.
Ivy by Frank Ocean // Frank Ocean put out the best album of 2016 with “Blonde.” From the pensive voice mails to the tugging-on-your-heartstrings lyrics, I somehow only picked one track for this SONG list. My favorite track changes daily, but “I broke your heart last week, you’ll probably feel better by the weekend.”
