I hope I've mentioned Dua Lipa on here before cause if I haven't I'm really disappointed with myself. Let me tell ya, this girl's got talent. I've been listening to her new(ish) album recently and you could say I'm kinda obsessed. Like, I'm in love with her voice. If you listen to the linked song or any other by her, you know her voice is different and quite powerful. And I guess I should've written about one of her more tempo songs, as I feel like this is her only slow song. Weird choice i made isn't it? But I really like this song so I'll stick with it, and I guess you'll have to check out her other music. Too bad...

(not really)


I also recommend her song "New Rules" if you want to listen to one of her more tempo songs. It's definitely a hit in my opinion and the music video is just.... amazing. It's a real treat to be honest so go and watch that as well if you're feeling like getting and new fave.

Have you ever heard of Wrabel? If you haven't I am so sorry for what your been missing out on. I first found out about him when he worked with my fave Alex Hope on one of his songs, 11 Blocks. I by the way recommend you listen to it cause it's a real bop...

Anywho, I'm here to talk about one of his new songs, We could be beautiful. First of all, I LOVE the name. I think it's kinda why I love it so much. But the songs really good too. I'm not sure if I like this or ritual more. They're both great, but this one has a better name sooooo.... Yeah. Listen to them, they're great. That's all I've got to say... Are you noticing how bad I am at selling y'all songs?

Okay, I might say that like, all the time. But this I'll like actually be back on track. But let's not focus on that and make me feel guilty now, you're here for the music aren't ya?

I've missed posting about a lot of new music that've come out these last months when it's actually been released. So I'm a little late with this one, but you need to listen to this.

I'm a huge fan of Lauv (aka Ari Leff) for quite a long time now and I'm pretty sure I've posted about him before. And if you didn't check him out then please do it now cause you're really missing out!! This song is like, magical? I've been loving it since it came out and I'm honestly surprised that I'm still not tired of it. Usually you get tired of a song after listening to it so many times, but I'm still in love with this after two months. So with other words, it's great and you should listen to it.

Guess who's back! It's me, not big of a surprise I guess. I mean, you're on my blog, so who else would it be? Anywho I'm back and better than ever (I hope). This is my so called comeback and I just have to, this song is way too good not to love.

If you're a fan of pop music I'm sure you've already heard of Khalid as he's been pretty much all the crazy for the last weeks. And it's not for nothing. He recently released his debut album American teen and people, especially on the internet, went crazy. He kinda reminds me of Frank Ocean, which I think says it all. Khalid is becoming a real favourite of mine and I absolutely in love with his album. Weird thing tho, I'm not a fan of Location which is the song he first became known for and that most people like. It's was his first single so I guess I can see why people stick with it, but there's so many other songs by him that are way better! But as I always say, that just my opinion.

Okay, so if you've been here for some time you're probably familiar with my obsession with good lyrics. I talk about it all the time and even tho I don't mind if a song has crazy and unrelated lyrics (as long as it's not like offensive and stuff) but I really appreciate good lyrics. And this song got some great lyrics! I especially love the lyrics "They'd think we're perfect if they'd ever seen us". I feel like he's talking about him and the person holding up an image. They don't people to know they're not perfect, so they make up an illusion of being perfectly fine. Kind of like what people tend to do with social media. Idk, there's just something about that lyrics that I really like.

I know I've been rambling a lot, but before I end this I can't help but talk about the amazing vocals! Not that they're complicated or unique, they're just great. Throughout pretty much the whole song they have two parts, one that sings higher and one that sings lower. You can hear the difference of them really good in the chorus. I love when the higher part goes up in the ends of every sentence in the chorus, making it sounds pretty awesome.

That pretty much it folks. I hope this won't be too much to read, but I guess you're probably interested if you're here so you're welcome! Anywho, if you've heard any good new music you'd want to share, the comment section is where you should go. Let's help each other out a bit and share some new music!

Okay guys, I know I'm kinda in love with James so here's another one of his songs. This one's a quite simple one vocal wise. It begins with him singing "soft" and then builds up which I really like. Especially when he puts in some longer tones as well. I think the vocals are what really gets to me the most, but I must say the lyrics match up with the rest of the song. Let's just call it an even song.

I'm kind of amazed by how he can literally go from high, loud tones to dark, softer tones in like a micro second. I guess most singers try to do that and most succeed but there's something with his technique I guess that makes it sound so much better to me. And the fact that he also create lyrics that match with the songs sounds makes me so weirdly satisfied. I mean I love when songs sound really happy and have a really deep lyrics, kind of like a secret message. But when I hear song that have lyrics, vocals and instruments that match so well I always feel so satisfied for some reason. Haha!

So this song really gets to me and I think it might become a new favourite of mine.... But honestly I'll probably listen to it way too many times in like two days and then hate it. Does that ever happen to you weep here you hear a song and you listen to it on repeat for like a day and then you never wanna hear it again? Happens to me all the sprite, sadly. But hey, at least I enjoy the song to the most!

As long as you haven't lived under a rock the last few days I'm sure you've heard a lot about Ed Sheeran. And I'm pretty sure you've also heard a lot from his new album, Divide, on the radio. The comeback of Ed has been one of the biggest news in pop culture this year and I think we were many who got excited when the album finally dropped at Friday. I've been having it on repeat since it came out and I was really surprised with how wide the album is. This is what I'm talking about when there's "something for everyone".

But as I said, this has been a big thing in pop culture and I've see a lot of very good/very bad reviews. But the thing everyone seems to be hung up on is the wide range of genres Ed somehow managed to fit in one album. Most people see it from a positive view and are saying that Ed's exploring different genres and letting more people enjoy his music, while others look at it from a more bitter view and mean it's a marketing trick and that Eds trying to get as much money as possible out of the album. But honestly, every artist nowadays has to work to stay relevant and even though we're many who would consider Ed constantly relevant, he still has to make sure his bills get paid. So if he did include so many genres to get money out of it, that wouldn't be a controversial thing. But by reading interviews with Ed about the album I think it's pretty clear he included so many genres because, guess what, Ed can do whatever he wants with his own music. If he wants to make Scottish folk music, then he does that. And what's wrong with him trying something's new? He's basically just showing everyone how talented he is!

But because the wide range of music he has on his album I'm kind of having a hard time picking a favourite. I like pretty much the whole album but my favourites are probably What do I know and Happier. If we were to talk about the lyrics, I'm always near crying when I hear Supermarket flowers and I always feel very nostalgic when I hear Castle on the hill. This album is just as good lyrically as it sounds, so pretty fucking good then. It's a masterpiece, what more can I say?!

Most of you've probably heard I took a pill in Ibiza at least a million times on the radio. So for those of you who recognise Mike Posner as the singer of the famous song this might be a bit surprising. This song is rather different from I took a pill in Ibiza with the calm guitar and soothing vocals. It's more relaxing and it'll definitely be a new favourite for those of you who didn't like I too a pill in Ibiza.

In the song I feel like he's kind of singing about how people don't really get him. How people look at him and expect him to be a really manly and macho and how they don't understand that he's a more emotional person. And he copse with his feelings by writing them down in songs. You can also figure out that he really values his ideas and that he don't care if it's the middle of the night, if he gets an idea to a song he'll write it down. He also brings up god often in the song and sings about how he helps him with his writing and his inspiration.

All over I think the song's about confusion and feelings. He's not feeling like he's fitting in anywhere and explains it in a way that makes him comfortable, by writing a song. I think this song's shedding light on how music can help you express yourself and the thoughts of a songwriter. Good song and good lyrics, so basically my dream song.

Well look who's back with yet another post way too late. Yep, I'm kinda hopeless at planning. But honestly, if anyone actually thought I was going to post in time you must be new here. Ha! But I promise I'll post weekly, but maybe not on Tuesdays only...

So recently I've been listening to a lot new music and trying to find more stuff to write about. And of course the songs I've found have been stuck in my head, but this one has been impossible (haha, get it ;)) to get out. James Arthur has been really popular lately with Say you won't let go and with this song, Can I be him. And it's because of his recent success I found him.

I think everyone heard Say I won't let go at least a million times when I first came out. And I'm happy that Can I be him also got quite big. If you like these songs I really think you should check out his whole album, Back from the edge. It's one of the few albums where I have yet to find a song that I'm not that into. The songs are all different, switching a bit between style a tempo. There's cuter songs like Safe inside, more "upbeat" ones like Prisoner and deeper songs like Let me love the lonely. So I'm confident when I say you'll find a song you like on that album no matter you're into.

But this song is my favourite of them all and is that really a surprise? It's a cheesy song about a guy who falls in love with a girl while watching her sing. He hears it and feel like the lyrics are written for him. Even tho I must admit it's sounds a bit creepy, imagine it in the cutest way possible. I like to think he wrote it before he became this famous and it's about some singer he was fangirling over. He just seem so much more human when you imagine him in front of a stage having a singer looking him in the eye while singing a love song and making him believe they really have something, and then realise he was nothing more than a fan. Heartbreaking right?

I think this song is way too beautiful not to write about. I don't know why but I've been really into guitar song lately (I blame Ed). I tried to learn to play this one myself and it actually didn't end up like a total disaster, sounded pretty good to be honest. But what I'm trying to say here is that songs don't have to be heavy produced or remixed to be good. Even if you're only using your voice and a guitar you can still make good stuff and sometimes better things than that produced stuff.

There's something about this song that makes me feel... something. I don't remember how I came across this song, but its was just a few days ago. And when I first heard it I felt so comforted. I think it is one of those song that has such a clear and strong message that honestly it's kinda hard to fuck up if you know what I mean. And even tho this song would still be a winner if it wasn't as strong when it comes to the instrumental part. But luckily it is a really good song all over and I really like how it still feels like an Ed with the guitar.

This is a song I feel like a lot of people can relate to in many different ways. And even if you can't relate to the lyrics I still think it makes you think a little deeper about the message. I might be overanalysing this but I feel like this kind of touches on the whole "men don't cry" thing by talking about that even dad cries sometimes. And I feel like this could possibly be good for teenage boys to hear and to be told that even tho society feels you otherwise, men are allowed to have feelings. So this song might have a big and important message, or it's just me playing with my fantasy and making up meanings behind song again...

So basically this is a song that could either represent something big for you or just be a good jam. I feel like I always talk a lot about the lyrics to songs and I might even "spoil" the songs for you. But as I've said a million times before, music is something everyone reads differently. And that's the best part! But I really hope those of you who actually listens to the songs will enjoy this one and maybe dig as deep in the lyrics as I did. But other than that, I'll be back in a week with new music (and hopefully in time as well) for your enjoyment and until that, check out some of my old posts for more music!

Do any of you know about Jon Bellion? He's just beginning to rise and I'm both happy and sad that he's kinda famous now. And you might wonder why I'm talking about him and not AJR who performs this song. And tbh, I'm not really sure. So in true me fashion I'm just gonna leave this topic, okay? Great!

So this is such a feel good song. It's happy and very different from what I usually listen to. My music taste goes from things like this to p!atd and tøp. So I'm basically very confusing to talk music with. But anyway, I feel like I don't post enough happy songs here's this one's here to fix that.

If you listen to more music by AJR you'll probably realise that they can sound quite similar to Jon Bellion sometimes. Even tho this song doesn't really sound a lot like he do they have other songs like Turning out and Come hang out. And I think that's part of why I wanted to hear more from them when I first heard their music. I wouldn't say they're unique but they're definitely different. They mix amazing vocals with good music and it ends up as really good music. On their song Call my dad you can really hear how amazing their vocals are. And I think it's really cool that they do it all by themselves.

As someone who appreciate lyrics way to much this may not have the most clever lyrics in my opinion. But for me it don't really matter with this song. It's basically a song you just want to dance and smile to. And I still feel like there's some meaning with the lyrics. But what do I know? Music and specially lyrics is something you can read and analyse as you want. It all means different for everyone. So don't let my thoughts on this song and lyrics change yours! Think as you want cause what gives me the right to judge you?
