Co-produced by Benny Blanco, Blake Slatkin, Ilya, Max Martin, and Pop Wansel, the Beastie Boys-sampling “Grrrls” is a sassy anthem about female bonding with inventive Lizzo-isms like, “We CEOs and dancing like a C-E-Hoe.”
On his newest offering “Heaven,” singer-songwriter Calum Scott parallels the otherworldly sensation of falling in love with the concept of an indescribable paradise.
“Waiting for Never” - Post Malone

“Alipin Ng Kaba” - VIVA AIRPORT
A torpe reggae anthem from Catarman, Northern Samar. The swerve at the end took me by surprise!
Pop-punk is now also beginning to seep into our R&B/hip-hop music.
This song perfectly marries Janine's newfound indie-pop-rock musical sensibilities and her vaunted vocal prowess.
This has the refreshing bounce of summer, Chris Brown-worthy catchiness. Coming at the soonest viral Tiktok dance video.
The acoustic guitars here are very infectious and crisp while the piano loops here have that sparkling indie quality to them. Somewhat like a bizarre cross between J-Lo and Regina Spektor on this SAB composition.
“I’m here/ Standin’ in the same dress/ You’re in your apartment/ I’m already gone,” she sings on the refrain before going for the kill into the longing chorus, “When you left, I bet you held her body closer/And I was hopin’ you would tell her it was over/ You’re all I think about and everywhere I look/ I know it’s bad, but we could be so good.” As for the Tiktok issue, let's just say that the song ha sthat catchy Halsey quality to it that she can't blame the label for trying.
For his new release “Cash In Cash Out,” Williams does the minimalist aesthetic—the beat is nothing more than hermetic snare drums, a puffed-out 808, and vocal squeaks, one of his more emaciated productions. But the cadence is a textbook match for 21 Savage and Tyler, The Creator, who each tackle it from parallel spectrums. 21 obliges to the strut, rhyming about pricing a million dollars just to appear and twisting a stoner comedy classic How High reference into a metaphor for a cold gun. Meanwhile Tyler—always somebody to savor an opportunity to rap over his favorites’ beats goes on total flex mode. From the beat to the guest blending, “Cash In Cash Out” is sinister but bouncy, maintaining Pharrell’s M.O. of discovering splendor in contrasts.
The song is a bubbly jam about the hardships of trouncing personal impediments in relationships. “Down for me, down for me / Act like we were Berlin / We can start over again / Why don’t you break ’em down for me,” Valentina sings on the chorus over iridescent pop production.
Demi Lovato returns with a new truck, surfacing with a much heavier sound than their previous releases with "SKIN OF MY TEETH," a hard-hitting, hardcore-bordering song that wink-wink derives from both Hole’s "Celebrity Skin" and the vocal quirks of "Born This Way" by Lady Gaga. The cussword-loaded lyrics can be a bit cringey — starting a song with "Demi leaves rehab again" is a recoiling, self-centered third person intro — but the tune mixes their influences with their dynamo vocals for an entertaining listening experience.
