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 – April 22, 2022
Megan Thee Stallion – “Plan B”
Megan Thee Stallion has just released her new track “Plan B”, which she teased during her set at Coachella, and let’s just say we are SO glad we have the official audio to bop along to this New Music Friday.
The Kid LAROI- “Thousand Miles”
The Kid Laroi comes back with his new song “Thousand Miles”. This song shows a softer side to the artist, with such lyrics as “I will never change, I couldn’t even if I wanted to for you, there’s nothing left to say, If I was you, then I would stay a thousand miles away.” If you’re looking for a song to get yourself in your feels this weekend then this is the track for you.
Johnny Orlando – “Someone Will Love You Better”
Canada’s very own Johnny Orlando has released “Someone Will Love You Better”. Describing the song, Orlando said, “‘Someone will love you better’ is the story of one of my friends who fell out of love with his partner. When he told me about it, I thought it was really interesting that you could care so deeply about somebody but still lose feelings for them over time. The lyrics reflect the realization of the falling out, the moment he broke the news and his hope that even though it wouldn’t be him, somebody else would love her the way he once did.”
The Chainsmokers – “Riptide”
The Chainsmokers dropped their new song “Riptide”, which is the perfect “early morning sit back with your coffee in hand and relax” tune to get those good vibes going. It has all the elements that make a Chainsmokers song so popular, but just a more mellowed-down version, which we personally love to see!
Florence + The Machine – “Free”
Florence + The Machine’s new single “Free” is the latest track from her upcoming album, Dance Fever, which is set for release on May 13, 2022. “Free” follows the recent singles “My Love”, “King”, and “Heaven is Here”.
Alesso and Zara Larsson – “Words”
Do you have the words “I love you sittin’ on the tip of (your) tongue”? If so, no need to worry as Alesso’s new song featuring Zara Larsson has got you covered with the fun and flirty new track “Words” — not to mention the music video is absolutely stunning and is perfect pop-culture perfection.
