Lots of new songs came out this month and as always – here’s what I’ve been listening to in June!
anpanman – bts
I mean, I love BTS. LOVE them. This song was something else. If you’re not into KPop this definitely won’t be to your taste but I think this is now one of my favourite BTS songs ever – I’m going to include the live performance for you guys so you can marvel at how pretty they are and how good their dancing is. Prepare to be mesmerised.
hard 2 face reality – poo bear, justin bieber, jay electronica
This song has been floating around for ages now because it’s actually an unreleased JB track from 2014, it was released again this year though (with the song rearranged and the addition of Jay Electronica) and I really like it, I’ve always liked this song so I’m glad they’ve released it as an official track this year. Kudos to Biebs.
heaven – julia michaels
Since last month‘s music post I’ve been listening to a little bit of Julia Michaels and came across this song from the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack and I really like it. The lyrics are just my favourite.
heartless – madison beer
I’ve spoken about Madison Beer in my music posts before (cause yanno, I love her) and obviously tracks from her EP As She Pleases have of course, made an appearance. This track Heartless though, has not. When I first started listening to the EP I kinda figured I didn’t really like this one and so just kept skipping it, I went back to it this month though and realised that actually I really like it, sometimes I just have to wait a while to warm up to things.
mind of poseidon – prettymuch
Now, as you all know, I’m a little obsessed with PM. (No really, their songs have been included in every single one of my music posts) and this one was no exception – this is actually an unreleased song so it’s not on Spotify (or anywhere, really) but I’ve got the YT link for you guys to indulge your ears. I’ve said it before (multiple times) but I genuinely don’t believe these guys can produce a bad song, everything is just so catchy. There were a couple of other unreleased PM songs that came out this month too but they’re the live versions so I won’t put you through the pain of listening to people screaming and shouting over the tracks – have this one instead.
strangers – halsey ft. lauren jauregui
I listened to Halsey’s hfk album when it first came out but literally only liked Alone and Bad At Love, I think because I’d enjoyed all her other songs so much this album was a little bit of a disappointment for me because I just couldn’t seem to get into it (don’t kill me). I was on Twitter and saw her reply to this tweet and I was really intrigued so took a listen (not to mention it features Lauren Jauregui like how did I miss that) anyway I took a listen and fell in love with it. That’s the story.
i can’t fall in love without you – zara larsson
I don’t have Spotify premium because your girl is too lazy to pay for it and would rather suffer through the adverts and get it for free, this song is on one of the Spotify adverts and it would come on while I was in the car and I really liked it. I’d already heard it before when Zara’s album came out but always skipped it ’cause I couldn’t really get into it, until now.
playinwitme – kyle ft. kehlani
Honestly I can’t remember how I found this one but I heard it and was like WOW I love it. I love Kehlani, she’s the best.
told you so – miguel
I’ve said this before but Miguel’s voice does something to me like no other, I was playing his album and when this one came on I was hooked straight away, I absolutely love it. I mean, love it. It’s been non stop on repeat.
i wish i missed my ex – mahalia
Someone I’m following on Spotify was listening to this so it came up in my sidebar and I was like ooh that’s an interesting name for a song, so I had a listen and I absolutely love it !! So much. It’s so good. I’d never heard of Mahalia before but fell in love with her voice and then proceeded to listen to every other song she’s ever created – they were all amazing. I have a new favourite artist. 10/10.
rollercoaster – mahalia
Another one of my favourites from my little listening session, it’s so beautiful, her voice is so dreamy and smooth and lovely.
talk fast – 5SOS
5SOS FINALLY RELEASED THEIR ALBUM. FINALLY. THE DAY ARRIVED. I SCREAMED. Anyway, it’s safe to say it’s amazing and definitely their best album yet, this instantly became one of my favourites as I listened to it and it’s been on repeat since. Their new sound is so good (!!!)
moving along – 5SOS
Again, one of my favourites. It’s so damn good. I can’t describe this song but it feels like it would be used in a movie or something like I can’t quite put my finger on it but it feels like this song could be used for something…am I even making sense. I don’t know. Who cares. Listen to it and you’ll get what I mean. It’s got this kind of careless, youthful, sexual chemistry vibe…I don’t know how to describe it. Just listen ok. YOU WON’T REGRET IT.
lie to me – 5SOS
Again, amazing. The lyrics are very relatable and I absolutely love their new sound, they’ve done such an amazing job.
ghost of you – 5SOS
This song makes me so emo I swear, the lyrics are so beautiful and every time I listen to this it’s like a punch in the face (a nice punch in the face) but it really gets you in your feels, basically. It’s so beautiful, I love it.
bed – nicki minaj ft. ariana grande
I mean, what can I say about this song. Two queens. We knew it was gonna be a bop. I am o b s e s s e d.
the light is coming – ariana grande ft. nicki minaj
Essentially this song is like mustard, you either love it or you hate it. I absolutely freaking LOVE IT, I’m so obsessed. If you follow me on Twitter you’ll know I haven’t shut up about this new album because I’m so excited I literally can’t wait, I’m so in love with the new direction Ari is taking her music in, the sound is so amazing. I absolutely LOVE this song.
perfect – anne marie
This song is just really nice, basically. Very real, very down to Earth, very comforting and relatable af. Sometimes I just feel like listening to it because I’m having one of those days and this song makes it all better, Anne Marie makes some great music.
sober – demi lovato
What can I say about this song apart from the fact it’s utterly breathtaking. So beautiful, so real and I will always always love Demi. She’s an incredible human and she reminds us that we all fall down sometimes, and that’s okay.
slow burn – kacey musgraves
I’d heard of Kacey Musgraves before but didn’t know anything about her, she was brought to my attention again when I saw a video of her and Harry performing You’re Still The One at MSG (!!!!!) which is crazy because the week before I was thinking about how much I wanted him to cover that song (I love it) and then a week later he went ahead and did it ?!?!? Anyway I then went on to listen to some Kacey Musgraves songs and….wow is all I can say. So beautiful, I literally have not stopped playing them. I’m absolutely obsessed. I adore them. This one and the following 3 are my favourites from her latest album, Golden Hour. They’re just beautiful.
butterflies – kacey musgraves
space cowboy – kacey musgraves
lonely weekend – kacey musgraves
And there we have it! Let me know if you like any of these or if you have any other recommendations!
All my love,
