This Summer hasn’t exactly been without it’s mega releases – new Ariana Grande, Troye Sivan and Travis Scott alone have pretty much dominated the charts… and that’s not even including the singles. This week, Summer is definitely over, but we’re still blessed with a series of long-awaited singles.
Featured Song: Khalid – Better
Arguably one of the biggest break out stories of the past couple of years is El Paso, Texas’ Khalid - after smashing it with singles ‘Young Dumb & Broke’ and ‘8TEEN’ he has been on a chart tirade with Martin Garrix-collab ‘Ocean’, Marshmello-collab ‘Silence’ among collabs with Benny Blanco, Billie Eilish and Normani.
Now we have a new Khalid single in ‘Better’ – a shout out to his home town. It’s a developed sound from his “American Teen” era… but dang it’s still good! He’s leaned more in the direction of R&B than pop on this one, but that doesn’t restrict it’s repeat value (which is very high).
Other Good Ones
Ella Poletti – Bones: Following her collab with L.A-based producer Out There from earlier this Summer, the gal is back with solo single ‘Bones’. Singing about an unfulfilled love she’s basically hit ALL of the marks when it comes to releasing a massive pop track that is as good first thing in the morning as it is late at night.
Lennon Stella – Bad: When Lennon (formerly of the TV show ‘Nashville’) released a snippet of this track on her Instagram before the Summer the internet went wild. People were literally releasing cover videos of three lyrics. Now the full song (and music video) are available on streaming services and it’s better than we could have ever imagined. Also, listen to the lyrics… it’s a shocking story!
