“Love of Mine” by Imagine Dragons

Lyrics: https://genius.com/Imagine-dragons-love-of-mine-lyrics

This previously unreleased demo track from Imagine Dragons’ debut era, Night Visions is terrific! Glad to see it finally out now for everyone to enjoy!

It’s giving The Killers-esque vibes in my opinion with the uptempo synthesizers! I will definitely be putting this song on repeat for days to come! How about you?!?

The animated music video is an intergalactic trip! It’s a lot like life. You’re on a constant journey to finding yourself, who you are on this planet, and what purpose you have overall amongst others.


“Million Dollar Baby” by Ava Max

Lyrics: https://genius.com/Ava-max-million-dollar-baby-lyrics

Boost your self-esteem/mood/spirits with the latest dance-pop track from Ava Max’s upcoming second studio album, Diamonds & Dancefloors! That album will be dropping in a couple of months on January 27th, 2023 via Atlantic Records.

In “Million Dollar Baby,” the rising pop star turns heartbreak into a confidence anthem. You too can move on from a low point in life! You just have to believe that better days are just around the corner!!

This track follows her previous hit single, Maybe You’re The Problem released earlier this year. Check out my coverage on that song, here.


“WHAT I HAVE” by Kelsea Ballerini

Lyrics: https://genius.com/Kelsea-ballerini-what-i-have-lyrics

Country superstar, Kelsea Ballerini wants us to focus more on the things we have in life that we’re grateful for and what makes us unique as a whole rather than comparing ourselves with others. Complaining about what others have or what you don’t have isn’t going to make you happy in life. It’s best to be humble, count your blessings, and live your best life!

Watch this sweet acoustic performance video above for those feel-good vibes! Perfect for family gatherings, campfire jam sessions, and casual solo listening!

Ballerini’s fourth studio album, Subject To Change will include this track and will be released on September 23rd via Black River Entertainment! Click here to pre-save/pre-order!


“Bigger Than Me” by Louis Tomlinson

Lyrics: https://genius.com/Louis-tomlinson-bigger-than-me-lyrics

Global pop superstar, Louis Tomlinson is back with a brand new song from his upcoming second album, Faith In The Future (out November 11th via 78 Productions Limited)! It’s called “Bigger Than Me” and fans will love it!

In this encouraging pop/rock anthem, the former 1D member wants us to ignore the critics, haters, and naysayers in life! If you turn the noise off from your mind, you can forge ahead with whatever you want to pursue in life at your own pace! Also, just because others think you will go in a certain direction doesn’t mean you have to go to extreme lengths in doing so.

Everyone has a unique path in life and I commend Tomlinson for preaching that in his new track. The music video has him walking alone in expansive fields and high atop the peaks and valleys! Love the gorgeous drone shots!


“Goodies” by Dillon Francis

Lyrics: https://genius.com/Dillon-francis-goodies-lyrics

Unwind and just enjoy the club beats this weekend with DJ Dillon Francis’ new, soon-to-be hit song “Goodies.” It’s his reimagined version of Ciara’s hit 2004 single, seen here!

WARNING! This track is infectious and the beats are an earworm! You’ll be hitting replay over and over! Have fun partying it up with your friends at your next shindig with this single!!

Expect “Goodies” to be a part of his upcoming This Mixtape Is Fire Too project, a follow-up to his 2015 #1 EP, This Mixtape Is Fire.
