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


Sam Smith – Love Me More

Sam Smith makes their grand return with the self-love anthem “Love Me More”. The music video pays homage to his popular breakthrough track “Stay With Me” and sees the singer stroll through a very similar street. Smith gets candid with feelings of self-hatred, with lyrics “Feeling like the mirror isn’t good for your health” and “Every day I’m trying not to hate myself,” Smith reminds us all to find the love from within and learn “how to love me more.”


Kehlani – “Everything” plus Blue Water Road (ALBUM)

“Baby, it’s the everything for me” is exactly how we feel about Kehlani’s new track from her freshly released studio album, Blue Water Road. “Everything” is a calming and relaxing track that sends us to a tropical destination where all that matters are good times and being in touch with your own emotions. There’s something about Kehlani’s vocals that feels like that extra lump of sugar in your morning coffee. If you’re looking for an excellent album to de-stress to we highly recommend Blue Water Road.


Justin Bieber with Don Toliver – “Honest”

After teasing fans with their fun “I Feel Funny” track, Justin Bieber and Toliver deliver with “Honest”. The song has all the R&B elements we love and reminds us a lot of Bieber’s Changes era. The song is captivating, easy to listen to, and sets the vibe for a chill weekend.


Monsta X – “LOVE” plus Shape Of Love (MINI ALBUM)

Monsta X have returned with their 11th mini-album, titled Shape of Love. The project consists of six tracks, including “LOVE”. The track showcases all the different ways you can love, whether it be self-love, loving a friend, or a romantic partner.
