Here’s the music I’ve been loving in March!
magnets – lorde
This song came out years ago but recently I remembered it existed again and have been re-visiting it a lot since. Sometimes when a song is first released and becomes big, I fall out of love with it fast because instantly it’s overplayed and loses its magic and I think this was one of those songs for me. Now that it’s been a couple of years since it was released and I haven’t really heard it anywhere since, it was nice to revisit it and appreciate it for everything that it is all over again, because it really is a good song. Very whimsical.
so am i – ava max
Ava Max is killing it right now and everything she touches seems to be an instant hit, I heard this on the radio the day she released it and instantly I was hooked – within the first 10 seconds I was Googling the lyrics wanting to know what the song was and who it was by and of course, it was Ava Max. I’m excited to see what else she brings out in future.
no lie – sean paul ft. dua lipa
Such a catchy song, I actually never really took any notice of this when it first came out but for some reason the chorus has been getting stuck in my head a lot and I couldn’t understand why. Anyway, this song is great.
talk – khalid
Don’t kill me but I’m not actually that into Khalid, I just don’t click with his music the way that a lot of other people seem to even though I feel like I should since his style is a lot of what I enjoy, however, I do like this song. I heard it on the radio a few times and then started listening to it off my own back because I think this is one of his best ones.
17 – sydney ranee’
This song came up on my Spotify radio and I’m so glad it did, I really love the sound of it and can’t believe that more people haven’t listened to it, I had to include it!
focus on me – jus2
JYP blessed us with a GOT7 sub-unit which I’m so grateful for because quite frankly I was missing them and getting impatient for their comeback, so when they announced JUS2 I was so pleased. This is their debut single and naturally, I really like it, it has this 80s kind of techno vibe and I really love how the sound differs from what you’d usually hear in GOT7, it’s nice because everything is promising so you know that this unit is definitely going to work and I’m so pleased for both of them because they really deserve it.
i need u (urban mix) – bts
Anyone who doesn’t agree that this version is better than the original can fight me. Don’t get me wrong, I love the original of I Need U just as much as the next person but this remix is just something else. I always forget that it exists until it comes on shuffle in the car and all of a sudden I’m screaming at the fact that this is literally the best thing I’ve ever heard. Ever. End of discussion.
try again – d.ear ft, jaehyun
This is so beautiful I wanna cry. In fact, I did.
crying over you – honne ft. RM & beka
You know when a song is so good that you don’t want to overplay it because you don’t want it to lose it’s magic because it’s literally the best thing you’ve ever heard? Yeah, this is it. Honestly this song that makes me feel a ridiculous amount of things. This might sound weird but when I listen to this I get butterflies, it’s just so beautiful yet relatable and the whole sound is amazing. Everyone sounds so good together and their voices are just perfect for this song, it’s a whole masterpiece. I originally heard a leaked version of this about a month ago but was still going to include it in this month’s post even though I couldn’t link it, however, it officially got released a few days ago so now you can all fall in love with the song exactly like I did – it really is one of my new favourite things ever.
my youth – jinyoung
I think I’ve said this before but Jinyoung has this really sweet nostalgic quality to his voice that makes everything he sing sound beautiful. I’ve had a new found love for this song recently.
heartbreaker – nct 127
I love my children.
epiphany – jin
I don’t give this song the attention / love it deserves and I need to start, it came on shuffle the other day and I was blown away by it all over again and couldn’t believe it I’d forgotten about it in the first place, it’s absolutely breathtakingly beautiful.
jealousy – monsta x
So catchy and definitely one of my favourite Monsta X songs, I’m probably late to the party in terms of talking about it but I’ve been listening to it a lot this month and simply had to mention it. Such a good song.
destroyer – monsta x
Monsta X always have really catchy main lines that get stuck in your head for days and make the whole song overall addicting and this is no exception. So catchy and such a good song – the whole dynamic of it works so well, Monsta X have this really unique sound that only they could pull off and I love it.
your number – shinee
I love SHINee so much my heart is full to bursting and just when I thought I couldn’t love them any more I found the music video for this and let’s just say…best thing ever. Honestly SHINee are just superior to everything, other Kpop groups could never. Literally the kings of everything. I couldn’t love them more if I tried. This song is just so good I LOVE THEM SO MUCH.
be my friend – jooheon & i.m
I heard this in the background of a Monsta X reality show and instantly knew it was them but had a little struggle trying to find the song since I was trying to interpret the lyrics and type them into Google. Surprisingly it didn’t take me that long to find it and once I did it was the only thing I played, and, (spoiler alert), it’s still the only thing I’m playing, because it’s the catchiest thing I’ve ever heard. As well as being the cutest thing I’ve seen in a fat while. That’s all. What a bop.
play it cool (eng ver.) – steve aoki ft. monsta x
This song was originally released in Korean but a few days ago the English version was also released and of course, I can always appreciate some good old English lyrics. Monsta X’s English is in my opinion one of the best and so this song just works so well. I love how interactive Steve Aoki is being with Kpop idols and spreading Asian representation, you just know that all of his collaborations are instantly going to be a hit and this is certainly no exception. English versions are so exciting.
i’m crying (kor ver.) – taemin
The name of this song is what happens every time I listen to it. I originally heard and fell in love with this song over a year ago now but recently it’s been getting stuck in my head and I’ve had the urge to listen to it a lot. The song is nearly 6 minutes long and that may not be everyone’s cup of tea but for me personally, I really love songs like that. I feel like they tell a story and it’s so nice to go on that journey with the artist and feel like time was actually spent at the end of it. I’ve been listening to this a lot whilst writing and I now feel like I have a whole new love and appreciation for the song even though I thought I couldn’t love it anymore than I already did. The original version is in Japanese but I prefer the Korean version because it feels a lot more intimate and emotional and of course, I love Taemin forever so naturally anything he produces I fall in love with.
And there we have it loves – let me know if you like any of these!
All my love,
