If you need a fun, upbeat pop track, this is it. It’s impossible not to move to this track and the story about an ex who doesn’t want you to move on but not giving into that.
- “The Idea of You” – Grady & lovelytheband
A vibey song penned by Grady and lovelytheband lead singer Mitchy Collins. It perfectly blends both of their styles and makes a California-cool track that will be a perfect summer playlist addition.
- “Renegade (feat. Taylor Swift)” – Big Red Machine
A new track from duo Big Red Machine which is made up of Aaron Dessner of The National and Justin Vernon, frontman of Bon Iver, features Taylor Swift and the collaboration is perfect. Fans of folklore will love this track– it’s full of hard-hitting lyrics with a perfect production arrangement.

A perfect summer song. It’s poppy, fun and the perfect addition to any road trip playlist. It’s all about having a new appreciation for your life and making the very most of it.
- “Wasting Time (feat. Drake)” – Brent Faiyaz
A sweet and smooth R&B track that’s sure to please. It’s infectious and sultry, all the great qualities of a strong R&B song. The addition of Drake’s verse only takes it higher.
- “Damn Good Story” – Melanie Meriney
This country track tells the story of summer love at its finest. The storytelling of this track is great and really pulls you in. It’s all about knowing that you won’t be with someone forever, but that they’ll make a good story to tell one day.
- “Read My Mind” – You Me At Six
SUCKAPUNCH (Deluxe Edition), the latest You Me At Six record, drops today, and this track is a strong contender. It’s high energy and angsty; you can feel the emotion right at the start.

A well-needed track that helps people of all ages realize that their voice is important and should be used to effect change.
- “Jenny” – EBEN
Former BTS cover star EBEN is back with the first single of his next EP, Dandelions. The track is strong-willed and anthemic and professing his love for Jenny, who unfortunately loves someone else.
