Top 5 New Songs This Week

The best new song is one that evokes an emotion, makes you move, or simply catches your ear. This week, we’ve got a big pop collaboration, an emotional ballad by Sharon Van Etten, and more songs that will have you hooked.

This week, the burgeoning powerhouse paired up with producer Timbaland for a sultry track with an unforgettable chorus. The result is a fresh take on classic rock music that is both sexy and soulful. It’s a welcome change from her more mainstream hits, and a perfect way to show off her talents.

It’s the first release from her upcoming album, and the most enticing preview yet of the Grammy-winning global phenomenon’s next project. The pulsing track is a dark, synthpop-lite number with a catchy lyrical concept: Eilish personifies her anxiety and depression as a stalker who wants to steal her life. It’s a bold approach that could have come off as too heavy-handed from another artist, but with the right amount of synthpop sparkle, it’s an uplifting and motivating listen.

A sexy, infectious single that could easily find a home on the Billboard Hot 100. The collaboration features a pair of sultry vocalists delivering an unmistakable sexy, sexy hook with a dancefloor-ready beat. It’s a reimagining of Kilo Ali’s “Cocaine,” but rather than an anti-drug message, it’s a pure party song that baits you in with the title before letting loose.

The beloved roots rock band’s first new track in nearly three decades is a swaggering, explosive track that proves the group is still one of rock’s most suave acts. Lead singer Britt Daniel’s voice is stretched to its raspy limits, and the band lays out a big sound to match with sweeping guitars, thundering drums, and a piano line borrowed from the U2 playbook.

Yung Kayo might be the weirdest rapper on Jeremih’s Young Stoner Life roster, but that doesn’t mean he can’t bring it. His intoxicating “YEET” showcases his technical skill as he delivers braggadocios trap bars over production that draws more from PC Music than Atlanta. It’s a different approach than his crossover hits, but with a healthy dose of Auto-Tune and run-filled verses, it works for him.
