While most people don’t realize, the majority of new music comes out on Fridays. Why Friday? I have no clue! About two years ago, the music industry universally changed the day to Friday, so music around the world would be released at the same time. Every week, hundreds of songs are release at midnight around the world. Every Friday, I want to share with you guys, my favorite songs and artists for that week! There are many playlist on various streaming sites that create lists of the most popular new music. My favorites are “New Music Friday” and "New Music Friday UK” on Spotify. Since this is my first music blog, I want to give you a few of my favorites songs, albums, and music videos from the past few weeks, so we can get you caught up!
"I Love You So Much"- DJ Khaled featuring Chance The Rapper
This song is a collab from DJ Khaled’s new album Grateful, which was released Friday (06.23.17). The two artists wrote this song for their children: DJ Khaled’s son Asahd and Chance’s Daughter Kensli. The song is a mix of DJ Khaled's hot mixing and Chance's epic bars. DJ Khaled’s new album includes other hits like “Wild Thoughts (ft. Rihanna)” and “Don’t Quit (ft. Calvin Harris, Travis Scott, & Jeremih).” Click the pic to listen.
"Moonlight"- Grace VanderWaal
Grace VanderWall is a 13-year old singer, most famous from America’s Got Talent in 2016. Since then Grace VanderWall has released an EP called" Perfectly Imperfect" at the beginning of 2017. Her new single “Moonlight” was released 06.23.17. Her unique voice and simplicity of ukulele create a catchy single.
"2:00am in LA"- Jake Miller
Jake Miller (South Florida native) released his 7th album last week called "2:00am in LA." As Jake has grown, so has his music. I think this growth is reflected in this new album. Some of my favorite songs on the it include “Palm Blvd” and “Sleeping with Strangers.” He also dropped a music video for his new song “Parties.” Click the picture above to listen to the full album on Spotify.
“Your Song”- Rita Ora
This single was released a few weeks ago, but the music video dropped on Friday! I love this song and the video that goes with it! Check it out below:
Hope you guys enjoy my picks for New Music Friday! Comment below if you have any suggestions of new music and/or artists!
Hey! My name is Ana Ginter! I am a recent graduate of the University of Wisconsin La Crosse. In college, I started my own radio show called Fearless Radio, where I played new music and new artist every week. I missed the show so much that I decided to take it with me with this blog! I love everything about music and hope to work in the industry one day! I love all genres of music and I am open to hearing any suggestion given to me! A few of my favorite things besides music include The Ellen Show, guitars and cats!
