It’s finally Friday. Where did the week go?
Okay, I know I already prefaced this on Wednesday, but I am actually going to be ten times more annoying than I actually thought. The new music that came out today, or if you’re a baller, YESTERDAY AT 9PM...is so good. Like I knew it was going to be good, you knew it was going to be good, but was anyone actually prepared for this? I feel like I was really thrown off guard. I’m going to sound like a huge granny here, but usually on work nights, I’m docile and cozy in bed by 10:30pm. Now, don’t get me wrong, I definitely stay up later just watching Tik Tok. Yesterday though? Adrenaline hit me at 9pm and I had to take a Melatonin to calm down.
You’re probably wondering what could have made me SO crackhead-esque at this time of night. UM THE MUSIC THAT CAME OUT. So, let’s go.
The one that kept me up all night, was Madeon’s song, The Prince. This one actually shook me to my core. Not lessening the greatness of the other songs I’m going to talk about. However, this one took me to Coachella in my head. Just vibing in the sunset, phone off, no worries. Madeon took to Instagram today to say that one of his favorite parts of the song is the beginning drums. Let me just say...SAME. I love a good drum moment. He also made a note to say that this song wasn’t even supposed to come out. So we are all literally so blessed. It makes the tune sound so much better when you know it was a little secret our ears weren’t supposed to hear.
Next...we have Blackbear. I’m going to keep this one short, I PROMISE. First, let’s just say that his album is one week away...and it just keeps getting better. Today he dropped “lil bit” and “Hard On Yourself” with Charlie Puth. Lil bit definitely gives me hot girl/hot boy summer vibes. Sometimes I really can’t explain more than that. The song has to do all the talking. However, if you really don’t know what kind of vibe that is at this point, it’s just a song that makes you feel like a baddie. Moving on! Hard On Yourself with Charlie Puth actually attacked me from the get go. They talk about why people are so hard on themselves. Simple. However, Blackbear does go on to talk about counting carbs and calories. Something I’ve been doing all week...I’m just trying to be a skinny legend like him. I guess I can let it go though...since ya know...I guess it’s too hard on myself.
While no singles were dropped, Point North is also dropping their album next week. We are absolutely quaking about it. That’s going to be my new phrase for New Music Friday’s...quaking.
I thought I would keep it short and sweet this Friday, so you can go listen to the songs yourself instead of sitting here listening to me blab about it.
‘Til next timeeeeeeeeeee
