It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday — especially when it’s New Music Friday! We’re breaking down this week’s best new tracks to keep on your radar.
New Music Friday – Feb. 11, 2022
Sabrina Carpenter – “Fast Times”
Sabrina Carpenter fans are in a great mood today as she’s finally dropped her highly anticipated song “Fast Times” which she previously teased on her appearance on the “Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon”. In the music video, Carpenter shows us that she can rock any look and hairstyle, all while channeling some major “Kill Bill” and “Charlie’s Angels” vibes. The song follows the release of her previous single “Skinny Dipping” off her upcoming album.
Jack Harlow – “Nail Tech”
Jack Harlow says it best himself when he raps “I don’t take Ls, I give ’em out and I chuck ’em up”. His new song “Nail Tech” proves once again why he’s a certified hitmaker. The song on it’s own is an experience that can hype you up (or something you can straight up vibe too), but the music video gives it that extra layer of Jack Harlow greatness that his fans love so much.
J Balvin – “Niño Soñador”
J Balvin trips it down with pop-punk inspired beats in his new single “Niño Soñador”. The lyrics and video sees J Balvin open up like never before, giving fans a more in-depth look at who the artist is right before his major North American tour hitting the road this spring.
Silk Sonic – “Love Train”
Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak team together again as Silk Sonic for “Love’s Train” which covers Con Funk Shun’s original song of the same name. Silk Sonic are showing artists how to take a classic song and give it a tasteful cover that keeps true to the original but adds some new melodies, breaks, and vocal runs. If you need a song that will get you up and grooving this weekend, “Love’s Train” is the song for you!
Wonho – “Eye On You” + Obsession (EP)
Wonho’s highly anticipated new project Obsession is out now! This is Wonho’s first release this year, following the major success of “Blue Letter”. Named by Rolling Stone as the “singer who’s breaking hearts just as quickly as he’s breaking stereotypes”, Wonho is proving time and time again that he’s here to stay and will raise the bar with every new song he drops. Obsession features the tracks “Eye On You” and “Somebody”.
Troye Sivan & Jay Som – “Trouble”
Troye Sivan finds himself in “Trouble” on his new song that he teamed up with Jay Som. The song perfectly paints a picture of falling for someone when you weren’t looking for love, but deciding it’s worth a shot. Troye’s music is always so smoothing that we can imagine this single as the main theme song to a teen-angst coming of age movie. So grab your car, go on a nice drive, and get ready to blast “Trouble” as loud as you can!
Dimelo Flow, Rauw Alejandro, Farruko, Mr. Vegas, Maria Becerra, & Fatman Scoop – “Suelta”
“Suelta” calls upon a powerful longlist of hitmakers such as Dimelo Flow, Rauw Alejandro, and Farruko to deliver this playful and fun single that will have you up on your feet this weekend. “Suelta” blends reggaeton and dancehall, all while sampling Mr. Vegas’ 1998 hit song “Heads High”.
Other noteworthy releases this week include Simple Plan and Deryck Whibley – “Ruin My Life“, Josh Ramsay and Dallas Smith – “Best Of Me”, Elijah Woods – “Fingers Crossed”, Katie Tupper “Misbehavin” + Towards The End (EP), Mike Campbell & The Dirty Knobs – “Electric Gypsy”, Cody Frost – “DWYSSWM”, Maeve Steele – “Tycho”, Devin Kennedy – “Follow Through”, VRod & Lil Pump – “Mala”, WILLIS – “Pool House” + 4 Locals (EP), Jake Banfield – “Nothing Like That”, Colby Acuff – “Once In A Lifetime”, Gracie Carol – “Old School Love”, Lindsey Rose Black – “Clutch”, Tinashe – “Naturally”, Indii G – “Summer Nights”, & Lukas Graham – “All Of It”.
