New Music Friday: February 5

It’s Friday again which means I got FIVE brand NEW tracks for you to go check out this weekend! While February is the shortest month of the year, that doesn’t mean we’ll be short of new picks! We’re loaded with talent this week. Rising artist Sam Fischer teamed up with chart topping pop artist Demi Lovato, Dutch DJ Martin Garrix collaborated with Swedish hitmaker Tove Lo, pop artist Sia joined up with French DJ David Guetta for a feel good song, American Idol alum Francisco Martin brings his latest to the world, and last but not least an all new track from actor/musician Aidan Alexander. All that and more in this week’s edition of New Music Friday here at Philip’s Music Corner for Friday, February 5, 2021!


“What Other People Say” by Sam Fischer & Demi Lovato

Yesterday, Australian singer-songwriter Sam Fischer released his duet collaboration with 2x Grammy-nominated artist, Demi Lovato. It’s called “What Other People Say,” and the two in my opinion made an incredibly powerful anthem.

Lovato’s strong vocals really illustrates the emotionally revealing lyrics which talks about losing who you were once were. You’ve become more attached to what the critics have to say or what your haters have to say. You’ve reached a really low point in your life. You’re not the same person as you were when you were an innocent child.

Fischer joins her on the second verse and later sings together through the remaining parts of the song which all in all makes for an amazing well-balanced single. It shows that when two artists come together to acknowledge their similar paths of changed hearts, perhaps things can turn around for the better.

In the music video, we see a Guess-Who styled game depicting the two musicians. In Lovato’s case, we see several descriptive words like “Aloof, Confident, Stubborn, Angelic and Naughty.” For Fischer, words like “Humorous, Touchy, Nervous and Impatient.” When the two sides of the board game starts spinning, it gets dizzying to watch but deep down I felt like that highlighted the confusion one might experience when they realized their current state of mind.

Listeners will get chills listening to this vulnerable song, so definitely go check this song out! Fischers and Lovatics will love it! I predict this track will be therapeutic and cathartic for them if they’re brave enough to reveal their own insecurities in life on social media platforms like TikTok or Instagram Reels. Hopefully you will have a strong support system in your life just like Fischer and Lovato does when everything is said and done.

Did you enjoyed this amazing collab? Share your comments below and let me know how you felt after hearing it. 😃


“Pressure” by Martin Garrix feat. Tove Lo

24-year-old DJ Martin Garrix dropped his first song for 2021 with Swedish singer-songwriter, Tove Lo doing the vocals. I thought this was an interesting sound/vibe. “Pressure” seems to be about a relationship that is like a game of cat and mouse. Depending on your significant other’s mood, you could be experiencing moments of deep passion with one another or you could be left in an tumultuous state where your lover might not be the lover you once thought they were towards you. You’re left wondering during times of tension but can also still be craving that attention from them while awaiting your next date (or hookup.) That’s the ups and downs of dating I suppose. It can be a double-edged sword for certain people.

Another interpretation of the song could lead you to thinking this song is just a passionate, hot and heavy love making song. The yearning of each other’s caress is high! If you’re in a healthy sexual relationship, and you need a song to dedicate to your lover, then this is a track you need to add to your shared playlists! For example, it would make for a great Valentine’s Day date night playlist addition. Let the hearts feel all the love! 💞

Sonically speaking, I thought it had a cool flow to it. Very groovy to the ears. Tove Lo’s vocals matched perfectly over the beats of the song. I don’t know about you but when she sings “ah-ah” at 2:05, it reminded me of the same “ah-ah” in her 2014 smash hit song, “Habits (Stay High).” It’d be interesting to see if they perform this track together in concert once the pandemic ends. Overall, if you’re fans of either artist, you’ll likely enjoy this track!

It remains to be seen what’s next for Garrix but I predict he’ll drop more singles later this year. Likewise for Miss Lo! Thoughts?


“Floating Through Space” by Sia & David Guetta

Sometimes just getting through the day is an accomplishment. That’s what pop hitmakers Sia & David Guetta are conveying in this song called “Floating Through Space.” It follows the recent single “Hey Boy,” her collaboration with Burna Boy. It also follows her collaboration with Guetta from last year, “Let’s Love” which already has over 70 million streams on Spotify.

You can hear this song on Sia’s upcoming soundtrack album, Music, out February 12th. Those songs will appear in said movie of the same name. The film will also be releasing in select theaters on that same day and on digital/DVD in March.

This latest track serves us a reminder that we’re all humans, we make mistakes, we fail at times and we should always exercise kindness. While we won’t see good days every single day, the fact that you’re alive and well should still be applauded. At the end of the day, we’re still “grains of sand,” a.k.a. tiny beings on this planet that’s “floatin’ through space!” Makes sense, right? So don’t sweat over trivial things, you can still persevere!

Watch the music video seen above for some cool skateboarding scenes done by three actors donning Sia-styled wigs. I love the slow-mo shots of them launching off the boards. It really captures the “floating energy” of the song’s lyrics. You fall and laugh it off, and you get back up. Overall, it looked like a fun session despite the falls! I give props to the actors, Bryan McGowan, Cory McMillin & Janthavy Norton who “suffered” for their craft. 😊😊😊


“Wild Girl” by Francisco Martin

American Idol alum, Francisco Martin has an up-tempo song out now called “Wild Girl.” It follows “Swollen” which was released last fall and has kicked off his professional career with great fanfare especially among his fans who’ve supported and voted for him when he was singing on the hit competition show.

Now as a signed artist to 19 Recordings, he’s taken the initiative in creating the sound you hear right now. I commend his authentic artistry thus far and for giving us another taste as to what’s to come — perhaps a full album later this year!

His bio might still say he “makes sad boy pop” but this is definitely a departure. He teased on his socials snippets of the music video production with actress Keana Marie (Dash & Lily) prior to today’s release.

In the music video, we see Martin and Marie having the time of their lives driving around through the desert and around town, sightseeing, goofing off in a bookstore, throwing shoes up on powerlines, even sharing a kiss by the shoreline. If they’re truly dating IRL, I support and ship it!

Martin shared that, “we spent the first few days of 2021 traipsing around SoCal filming this video and I’m obsessed with it.” You can tell they really enjoyed making the video, for sure! Major props to the crew members who brought Martin’s vision together beautifully.


“the end of the world” by Aidan Alexander

When the world seems like it’s crumbling down, all you need is a “friend for the end of the world according to social media influencer/singer-songwriter, Aidan Alexander. The 20-year-old artist’s latest tune should not go unnoticed. It follows his 2019 single, “Guts.” This new one will likely give you chills and goosebumps after hearing it in my opinion. Play the visualizer seen above for an even more dramatic impact!

Feel free to share it with your friends whether they need it or not. Let them know about this song if they’re pessimistic about the world or their own future or if they just need some human connection during this crazy pandemic! Hopefully this song will inspire you to reach out to your family and friends more often.

Overall, I thought the song had a great arrangement. When the strings enter around 1:00, that felt great to the ears. It really added to the surrealness of the song’s vibe.

If you’re a fan of Charlie Puth or Lauv, and haven’t heard of Alexander before, then you’ll be in for a treat! He has a similar sound to theirs and would make a great discovery/addition to your playlists this week and beyond.

New Music Friday: December 18

As we get closer to the holidays of Christmas and New Year’s, I hope these next highlighted picks bring you some joy this week! There are new songs from 18x Grammy Award winner Paul McCartney, Grammy winning alt-pop solo singer/Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams, rock band Good Charlotte, 2x Grammy winner LeAnn Rimes & multi Grammy-nominated recording artist Jon Batiste. All that and more in this week’s New Music Friday for December 18, 2020!


“Find My Way” by Paul McCartney

Sir Paul McCartney is back with the release of his 18th solo studio album, McCartney III. It follows his previous eponymous albums, McCartney and McCartney II released back in 1970 and 1980 respectively. It’s now officially a trilogy set if you think about it.

Once again, the legendary singer-songwriter/producer created this entire album by himself. The only difference this time is that this was made during the quarantine lockdown earlier this year.

It’s cool to see the 78-year-old musician playing all the instruments in the music video seen above. You can tell this was a passion project for him from start to finish. Everything from the vocals to the guitar playing to the drums and even the harpsichord, all of it, it’s a visual and aural delight! It’s a very joyous song that needs to be played for those seeking to relieve the stresses of the week or after a long and hard day’s work.

According to the video’s description the video was directed by Francis Ford Coppola’s son Roman Coppola and “the shoot utilized no less than 46 cameras to capture Paul on every instrument and from every angle, resulting in an unprecedented and intimate glimpse into Paul creating and performing a McCartney III highlight.”

There are 10 additional songs on the new record, so feel free to go check that out this weekend! I enjoyed listening to this experimental album, and I feel Beatles fans and Sir Paul fans alike will do so too!


“Find Me Here” by Hayley Williams

Reflecting on the year that it’s been thus far, we could all use a song like this one from Miss Hayley Williams! This song is part of her latest EP, Petals For Armor: Self Serenades.

It’s soothing to hear this new song where she reminds us all that “long as I’m lovin’ you you’ll never be alone/Long as you keep wanting me around.” It’s true because even though we can’t see all our friends, family members and favorite artists on tour like we use to, the love is still there. The love we have for them will help carry us all through this dark and scary time.

I applaud Williams for putting out one more body of work before the year’s end. It’s like a warm and cozy hug and a very intimate experience for our ears. I’m looking forward to more new music from her in 2021 and from her band Paramore later down the road. How about you?


“Last December” by Good Charlotte

Rock band, Good Charlotte returns to the music scene with a brand new song called “Last December.” It’s been two years since their last release, Generation Rx (2018). A bittersweet music video accompanies the song which deals with the craziness that is 2020 as well as a hint of some hope and joy to carry us into the new year!

Images of closed venues due to the coronavirus lockdown earlier this year are seen. There’s also broken and or boarded up storefronts due to the protests against police brutality and the unjust murder of George Floyd, plus billboards advertising climate change is real and COVID-19 testing sites. It’s very surreal looking back upon those powerful moments. It really seemed like this year would go on and on, seemingly never-ending, but alas we’re in the homestretch part now. Christmas lights are up practically everywhere, and that sliver of normalcy is definitely craved by many. With the vaccines being rolled out across the country as we speak, here’s hoping 2021 will be a better year for everyone. Light is definitely at the end of the tunnel!!

Sonically speaking, this is a very well crafted song from the band whom wanted to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their first album with this release. The lyrics flow seamlessly along the upbeat track. The drumming is simply impeccable.

According to an ALTPRESS interview, lead guitarist Benji Madden said, “The holidays can be a rough time of year. Thinking of the ones we’ve lost and longing for moments that have passed us by is definitely a part of the joy and melancholy.” He added that “for us [it] speaks to both sides of those holiday feelings and we hope it brings some solace to anyone who needs it.”

Overall, it’s great to hear a new GC song before the new year starts. What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below.


“Throw My Arms Around The World” by LeAnn Rimes

38-year-old singer-songwriter and 2x Grammy winner, LeAnn Rimes is back with a passionate new song, “Throw My Arms Around The World.” She expressed in a recent tweet that her new single, “is full of passion, hope and sacred rage. I simultaneously dance and cry every time I listen to it. It’s a plea for the world to join me in healing this planet, ourselves and each other.”

Sonically, there’s a lot going on here. It’s such a big production undertaken by a small crew plus Rimes. Props to everyone who worked on this single. Watching the video seen above will make you appreciate the recording process and number of takes it took to put it all together smoothly.

Please put your headphones or earbuds on to get the maximum aural experience! I got a lot of international vibes from this worldwide appealing track such as African and Egyptian sounds. The background vocalists enhances the flow of it all as well. What do you all think? Share your opinions in the comments box down below.


“It’s All Right” by Jon Batiste

The amazing Jon Batiste (3x Grammy-nominated) offers his voice on the upcoming Disney/PIXAR soundtrack, Soul. This track titled, “It’s All Right” is very uplifting and encouraging to listen to. Play this track if you’re feeling sad because it will definitely perk your heart and soul up. Play it also if you want to get an idea of the film’s vibes ahead of time.

The smooth jazzy number is just one of the brilliantly composed tracks off the soundtrack, so you should definitely check out the rest of the album which features tracks from Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross as well as actor Daveed Diggs and neo-soul musician Cody Chesnutt.

Soul will be available to stream on Disney+ on Christmas Day!

New Music Friday: September 25

Hello readers! Happy Friday once again! I’m pleased to share another round of music recommendations this week for you all! I’m highlighting all new music from Sia, OneRepublic, Kylie Minogue, Bastille & Waterparks. Feel free to read on and listen! Share your thoughts and feelings about them in the comments box below the post.


“Courage To Change” by Sia

Kicking off this week’s picks with the talented musician, Sia and her new song “Courage To Change.” With the recent headlines of the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the ridiculous announcement that none of the officers are going to be charged for killing Breonna Taylor, we could all use a song right now to help heal these gut-wrenching blows.

Taken from her upcoming directorial debut film, Music, the 9x Grammy-nominated singer-sognwriter left a powerful message in the description of the new song on YouTube.

“The only thing that remains constant is change.” Now more than ever we need to pull together to fight for humanity, social justice, equality & so much more. It’s time for real change.”

With the upcoming election in November for the U.S., hopefully we do see the first steps towards real and impactful change! A new president will send ripple effects all around the world and for generations to come.

Musically and sonically, this song is another anthemic track from her. It deserves all the love and attention from the hardcore Sia fans, the casuals and anyone new who discovers this song out of the whim. It starts off a bit of a downer lyrically speaking in the first verse, but her strong and comforting vocals pivots and reassures us that “we’re not alone in all this” and that when we stand together, “we can do anything!” Also, that piano solo bridge will give you goosebumps! Soooo good!

CBS has already put out a new CBS Salutes commercial campaign which features this inspiring song. Check that out if you like, by clicking here.

I wanted to end my thoughts about the song by saying this track along with her 2016 single, “Unstoppable” go hand in hand. They’re both such amazing motivational boosters to have on your playlists!


“Wild Life” by OneRepublic

For my second pick of the week, we have another movie soundtrack song with OneRepublic’s contribution to the Disney+ Original Film, Clouds. It’s titled “Wild Life” and wow just wow, this is another amazing song from the Grammy-nominated group.

Early reactions from the comments section on YouTube say this feels like a Native track and I agree! The beginning sounds similar to their deep cut “Au Revoir.” The orchestral sounding, anthemic feel to it gives me the chills and by the chorus you just feel totally immersed with this world they beautifully paint. Everything from the waves of notes being played to lead singer, Ryan Tedder’s signature vocals, it’s simply spectacular! A well produced/mixed track, all thanks to their collaborator and mixing engineer, Jeff Nathaniel. He also co-written/co-produced the band’s previous singles, “Better Days,” and “Lose Somebody” with Kygo.

From a lyrical standpoint, this feels like a quarantine song because we’ve all had a crazy 2020 thus far and it’s extremely likely that all of your plans for the year have been altered in some shape or form. We all want to just be free, spread our proverbial wings, do the things that make us happy in life and be our unique selves. But in difficult times like this one where we can’t go out as much as we used to, it’s easy to feel let down by things you can’t control. Our dreams may be on hold right now but staying hopeful and optimistic will lead to brighter days ahead and I love how the band conveys that in this song. New plans can be made and new experiences will emerge once we get through this health crisis and a widely available and safe vaccine is distributed around the world.

From a visual standpoint in the lyric video, you’ll enjoy the song even more as you witness the beauty of the ocean waves crashing along the rocks and shoreline, the cries of seagulls flying all about and the lush forest trees grouped together from both perspectives, high atop and on the ground. Feel free to close your eyes when you replay the song. Simply awesome!

The band’s upcoming album, Human was suppose to drop earlier this summer but was put on hold as the band felt it wasn’t right to put out during a global pandemic. Hopefully a new date will be revealed soon, but for now, this soundtrack song will keep us waiting patiently at what’s to come in 2021.


“Magic” by Kylie Minogue

Dance-pop singer Kylie Minogue really knows her bread and butter! She just released her second tasting from her highly anticipated new album, Disco this week and it’s pure magic!

If you could use a serotonin boost right now, look no further to Minogue’s “Magic.” Also, if you’re pleased with your current status of your love life whether it be your first year dating or several years or more together, then you will connect well with these lyrics which depicts someone who’s literally living on cloud 9 right now and doesn’t want that sheer bliss to stop.

I have a feeling that this track will be heavily played in a post-pandemic world at clubs and parties all across the globe! But for now, you’ll have to enjoy it and dance along from the comforts of your own home.


“survivin'” by Bastille

English rock band, Bastille dropped a new track this week to the surprise of many of their fans. I feel this is their quarantine jam and I’m happy to report it’s an amazing song!

Face it, 2020 has been out of the ordinary. It seems like we’ve established a new daily norm of just getting out of the bed and just getting through each day, week in and week out. The boredom and monotony has settled in for the time being for most of us. You start or already are questioning the current state of the world. If you’re feeling that way, then this song is for you!

This track follows their other surprise drop, “WHAT YOU GONNA DO???” ft. Graham Coxon back in July. That song was more on the rock side of things while “survivin'” is more relaxed and contemporary. Both sound like a departure from their previous hits like “Pompeii,” “Bad Blood,” & “Flaws.”

I’m eager to hear what their upcoming fourth album will sound like. I love it when a band explores their sound and experiment in new genres or sub-genres. They don’t force themselves to be in just one box. They’re truly an authentic band to listen to.

The accompanying lyric video will leave a great impression on you. The generally positive vibes vocally speaking is overlayed on trippy backgrounds of clouds and lava lamp-esque colors. A true visual delight!

Sonically, I was caught off guard by the sax solo parts. I don’t know about you, but I thought it was a cool and smart decision they made. You can thank their touring member Rittipo for that contribution!


“Lowkey As Hell” by Waterparks

Pop-rock band, Waterparks is back with a new song called “Lowkey As Hell.” While it sounds like a positive upbeat track, the lyrics are quite a downer as lead singer, Awsten Knight expresses throughout this short but concise 2:15 song. He delves into topics of success, loneliness and overall mental health. Of course the work they put out is resonating with fans, but at what cost? He ponders, does it make sense to keep making heart breaking songs?

“I guess at least my work is working, right?
I think people like me better when I’m hurt inside
They say it’s not true, and they hope I’m alright
But their eyes probably rolled at the first line”

An interesting nugget about this song is the fact that he changed parts of the “Watch What Happens Next?” pre-chorus and post-chorus lines from, “I like cool shirts, I like cold rings/I want a big house, I want nice things.” to “I like cool shirts, I like cold rings/I want a big house, but I’m hiding.” That shows just because you’re rich and famous, he’s still human just like all of us.

Like what Demi Lovato and Marshmello advocate in their new song “OK Not To Be OK,” it truly is okay to not feeling okay as long as you open up to others so that you could get the support you need. In this case, it’s Knight cathartically revealing to the Parxies, he never had a day off since his blue hair days (Double Dare era) and that he should call his parents more often to let them know he’s fine. Hopefully in quarantine, he’s gotten the rest he needs and he’s spending some valuable personal time with the fam away from the hustle and bustle.

The band has come off their most successful album cycles yet with Fandom in 2019 and then the pandemic hit and ever since then ’til now, it’s been lowkey and highkey a challenging time for them. Knight really misses his friends and going out on tour with the band. They had to halt all touring this summer, so they’ve lost the ability to play live in front of their fans.

Knight went dark on his socials for five months only to finally emerge just this past week on Instagram Live with an acoustic session of older hits like “Rare,” “Lucky People” and “Dream Boy” and subtly hinting at the new era by playing a snippet of this song while not so subtly cutting off his neon green hair to the listeners’ surprise. That basically confirmed the Fandom era was over.

It remains to be seen what the new “G” era will sound like. The band will likely continue that tradition of naming albums in consecutive order. But expect the band to pivot in all sorts of directions sonically speaking in the new record as they too do not like to sound the same in every album.

With their new label, 300 Entertainment which mostly caters to hip-hop artists, perhaps we will hear more hip-hop and trap vibes spliced in with their rock roots moving forward. The future continues to look bright for these guys!

New Music Friday: May 15

Can you believe it’s the middle of May already!?! Happy May 15th edition of New Music Friday. This week we have all new music from pop artists Katy Perry, OneRepublic, and the Jonas Brothers w/ Karol G, rising musician Lennon Stella featuring Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, Charlie Puth, and lastly but certainly not the least, singer-songwriter Stephen Puth with his latest single.


“Daisies” by Katy Perry

Katy Perry’s first official single off KP5 (releasing August 14th) is here! This is another one of those power anthems that will boost your confidence. This is a delicate, beautiful reminder that we’re really are one in 7 billion. We’re unique beings who shouldn’t follow a strict set of rules or pathway that others tell us to do and follow. If you have a crazy dream, and feel like it isn’t going to happen after people tell you so, then don’t listen to them. There IS no crazy dream in life. So go out there and chase it!

On her social accounts, Perry revealed that she made this song a few months ago “as a call to remain true to the course you’ve set for yourself, regardless of what others may think.” She also added that due to the world changing and evolving due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the song has taken on additional personal meaning for her. What that really means, remains unknown. But I have a hunch it could mean she wants to branch out and take more risks trying to cross out something off her bucket list in the coming months and years. Now that she’s expecting to give birth to her first child, a girl this summer, perhaps a children’s book may be authored by Perry in the near future or a podcast for expecting moms could get made, or maybe even an infant/toddler clothing line will be in the works?!? The world eagerly awaits!

In the meantime, you can download and stream “Daisies,” right here. Tune in to the season finale of American Idol this Sunday, 8/7c for Perry’s television debut performance of this new single.

“Lose Somebody” by Kygo & OneRepublic

Renowned DJ/record producer Kygo teams up with Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and producer, Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic for their second collaboration. “Lose Somebody” focuses on the pain someone has to feel in order to find clarity in a previous relationship.

Sonically, this is another amazing track from Kygo. It’s upbeat and runs parallel to the sad verses of the song. Vocally, Tedder channels the emotions of a confused and hurt person who just wants to figure out what went wrong.

If you loved their previous collaborative effort, “Stranger Things” off Kygo’s 2017 album, Kids In Love, you will likely find this song to be just as great, if not better.

This is the fourth single off Kygo’s upcoming third studio album, Golden Hour due to release May 29th. You can pre-order that, right here.

Also as a bonus, go check out OneRepublic’s live quarantine performance of “Better Days” which recently got added to streaming platforms this week.

“X” and “Five More Minutes” by Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers are back with new music. These are the next two new singles to drop as part of their upcoming sixth studio album following January’s release of “What A Man Gotta Do.”

This first one is produced by veteran hitmakers Ryan Tedder and Swedish songwriter/producer, Shellback. The Jonas Brothers sing about a single person who meets somebody for the first time and they passionately click with one another, causing them to not feeling so lonely anymore.

This is a song for those who find instant love or connection, a “love at first sight” kind of song if you will. Colombian singer-songwriter Karol G offers her vocals on this spicy track and to be honest she complements the track really well. I predict this will be a song of the summer candidate this year.

The second single, “Five More Minutes” is the more subdued of the two. Nick and Joe offer a tender vocal effort in this song about somebody seeking more patience from a relationship. This relationship may appear to be one-sided but the person who still seeks another person’s love and affection is willing to woo him or her back.

This is suitable for those listeners in a relationship who feel that they deserve a second chance at love. With a new approach at love, and a whole lot of convincing and proper two-way communication, things might turn out better in the long run for couples around the world. Good luck if you use this song in your efforts to do so! 😁

Download both “X” and “Five More Minutes” by the Jonas Brothers today!

“Summer Feeling” by Lennon Stella feat. Charlie Puth

Rising pop artist Lennon Stella collaborated with chart topper Charlie Puth for this song off the soundtrack for Scoob!, the new animated Scooby Doo movie which is out now on digital home release.

This song is pretty exuberant for the ears. Play it if you want some sunshine on a cloudy day, for loving vibes outside while you take your solitary walk around the block, or for your feel good beach hangout playlist(s), once the beaches are opened of course.

Get the song, right here. Listen to the whole film soundtrack which contains songs from the likes of Anne-Marie, MKTO, The Chainsmokers, OneRepublic, Tiësto w/ Jonas Blue and Rita Ora, and the late Avicii just to name a few, right here.

“Watching You Walk Away” by Stephen Puth

Up and coming artist Stephen Puth, brother to Charlie, is back with a new single called “Watching You Walk Away.” It’s a song about somebody who once had a relationship, but couldn’t save it as he/she sees their love leave the relationship hence the “walking away.”

It’s a bit tragic in the sense that this person who can no longer stay in a committed relationship anymore with the other person because he/she can’t even attempt to talk things through with said person who walked away unlike in the Jonas Brothers’ new song “Five More Minutes” which boasted a second chance at love.

Overall in sound, it’s an entertaining and soothing soft pop track that you should put on your playlists this week. Looking forward to hearing more singles and hopefully a full length album (his first) from the younger Puth brother in the near future. I think he has what it takes to be as successful as his brother, Charlie.

Get the new single, right here.

That wraps up this week’s edition of New Music Friday. What’s your favorite track this week out of these picks? Comment below to let me know. Visit again next week for another batch of songs you need to put on your pandemic playlists! Happy listening!
