The 9 Best Songs Of The Week

The music industry is back after taking a little break, and so are we with our weekly recap of the best songs of the week. January promises to be a massive year for music with some amazing albums coming out (have you read our article with eight albums coming out this month yet?), and we can’t wait to hear new music of our faves.

1. Crystal Murray — Other Men

The French singer Crystal Murray has already achieved a lot at her young age and seems to be more determined than ever with the release of her new EP Twisted Bases on 11 February. The new single “Other Men” highlights her unique approach towards pop and R&B, which is just remarkably stunning. She’s one to watch this year.


The New York-based collective MICHELLE is one of our dearest discoveries of last year and is ready to finally unleash their brand-new album AFTER DINNER WE TALK DREAMS. Their new single “EXPIRATION DATE” brings so much positivity and gets us happy in seconds thanks to its fun guitar chords. We’re counting down the days until the album release on 28 January.

3. Lexi Jayde — drunk text me

It’s almost a year ago since Olivia Rodrigo had her giant breakthrough with “Driver’s License”, and we found a song that could easily repeat this stunt. Lexy Jayde’s new single “drunk text me” has a similar build-up, great lyrics and could be the next anthem for all the teens with a broken heart. Since the song is so relatable, it could become the next viral hit on TikTok.

4. Alison Wonderland — Fear Of Dying

Alison Wonderland’s name isn’t the only cute thing we like about the American DJ because she’s a great producer as well. Her new song “Fear Of Dying” is a very catchy and haunting pop song with EDM elements and surprised us with some quirky sounds in the beat drop. While this song sounds quite uplifting, it talks about being afraid to lose a loved one and has a subtle emotional undertone to it.

5. Montell Fish — and i’d go a thousand miles

Music doesn’t always have to be bombastic to be mind-blowing because the minimality of “and i’d go a thousand miles” got us instantly mesmerized. Montell Fish tells his story on a simple guitar melody, while his voice adds the perfect magic with the slight reverb on it. There’s something indescribable that connects us to this song, and we feel like you’re going to adore this too.

6. Deyah — 900 Degrees

London’s rising rapper and singer Deyah starts the new year right with the brilliant single “900 Degrees”. Showcasing her versatility as an artist by switching between strong vocals and convincing raps, this song confirms why she’s on everyone’s one-to-watch list. The temperature is rising by “900 Degrees”.

7. Jaguar Jonze — CUT

Last year, Jaguar Jonze started a debate about the horrible culture inside the Australian music industry by revealing she was sexually assaulted. She became a central figure for women in the music industry who experienced similar events and don’t want to stay quiet anymore. Her new single “CUT” is a powerful track with a strong statement because it bundles the anger she had during these times and makes us realize even more that Jaguar Jonze is a true force.

8. Omar Rudberg — Mi Casa Su Casa

Omar Rudberg will be a very familiar face for everyone who watched Young Royals on Netflix this year, but did you know that he makes music as well? His new single “Mi Casa Su Casa” is a fun pop song with great vocals, a very catchy chorus, and great songwriting. Omar Rudberg clearly has a lot of talent, and we’re excited to see what he has in store for us next.

9. Cyra Gwynth & Carla Prata – ALL NIGHT

Miss Cyra Gwynth knows what she’s doing and slays another day on her brand new song “ALL NIGHT”. The Belgian r&b-princess gets the help of the London-based artist Carla Prata, who’s adding some little magic to this irresistible track. Cyra has been working hard over the past few years and we definitely see her growth as an artist.
