I have been on a major hunt for new music lately and I have some absolute bangers for you guys. I’ve really tried to listen to people who I’ve never paid attention before and I’m predicting major blow-ups for a few of the artists on here. So, even if you’re someone who doesn’t like to step out of their musical comfort zone give these songs a go. I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed. These are all off of my October/November playlist is just here if you’d like to listen to it.
BETTER / KHALID
Khalid has been one of my favourite artists this year. I’ve been bumping everything that he’s released, especially this. It is literally like he gets better and better with everything he brings out. It gives off such positive vibes. If you haven’t listened to Khalid yet, you need to asap.
A/OK (EVERYTHING’S PERFECT) / TERROR JR
Terror Jr is my favourite group and like Khalid, I think everything they bring out is a bop (pun intended, if you know, you know). The two songs in one here are just so amazing. I just cannot get over how perfect this song is and I am so excited for their latest album to drop!
HIGH / YOUNG THUG FT ELTON JOHN
There are two names you didn’t think you’d see together on a track but it’s the collab you didn’t know you needed. Rocket Man is the track sampled in this is one of my favourite Elton John songs ever and I was apprehensive about this at first but they go together so well. I love mixing new vibes with old simples.
GOKU / JADEN SMITH
I know this seems kind of contradictory as I said I’d put new artists in but here’s Jaden Smith. In my defence, however, we know Jaden Smith as the actor or as Will Smith’s son but do we know Jaden Smith as an artist because I didn’t and I was missing out. This song is especially bop-worthy. It’s the kind of song you put on at the gym to make you feel superhuman.
COOL WITH YOU / SONNY ALVEN
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve played this but it’s a lot. It’s that song that tries to keep the summer alive and it puts you in the best mood because it’s so playful, y’know? I absolutely love Sonny’s voice and I will definitely be putting more of her stuff on my playlists.
CAN’T GET OVER YOU / JOJI FT CLAMS CASINO
I used to watch Joji’s videos back when he was known as Filthy Frank and I absolutely adore him as an artist. His music makes me feel as if I’m even a little bit cool even when I’m not. I was excited the second I realised that who he was and I’ll be bumping him til’ the end.
WHO? / TSUKI FT SHILOH DYNASTY
As I said with High by Young Thug, I love it when artists mix older samples with their new styles. They use a newer version of Pure Imagination and it sounds so freaking good. It’s the kind of song you can put on when your doing uni reading and feel the stress just melt away.
BETTER OFF / JEREMY ZUCKER (FILOUS REMIX)
I feel like this is the kind of song you’d play when you get the aux when you’re on a road trip to show off how bomb your music taste is. It’s the wildcard hidden within your playlist. I just love the sounds on this track.
I hope you enjoyed the second edition of the soundtrack to my life. I really enjoyed putting this together again and I’m definitely going make it a monthly thing. If you have any recommendations for me to add to my playlist this month then I’d love to hear them as always.
