What's up! Welcome to your MYfm New Music Friday. I’m your host, Jon Comouche… now let’s dive in to the top tunes that dropped this week!
- Honey (with Muni Long) - John Legend
Anytime John Legend comes out with new music... I get excited. This song is the second track to arrive from John Legend's soon-to-come LP. It's groovy and... a bit seductive??? He partners with Muni Long (pronounced "money" long) who has written with Rhianna, 5th Harmony, Ariana Grande, and others! Legend has an upcoming residency in Las Vegas that I definitely am going to try to make it a point to see.
2. One Life (Acoustic Version) - James Bay
I truly feel like it doesn't even matter what James Bay sings about... his voice is just so captivating and will make you feel something. Now, the original version of this song came out last month... but Bay will often drop an acoustic stripped down version of his songs a few weeks later, and they are always my favorite versions.
3. Problems - Alt Bloom
Okay this one is GREAT. It came out last week on a 2-track EP from Alt Bloom, who is a newer artist that has been on tour with Andy Grammer... and as the opening act, he SHINES. Give this one a listen, and if you enjoy it as much as I do, you should definitely check out his other music. He is an artist I'm excited to keep listening to.
4. Slingshot - Zach Seabaugh, Chance Peña
Zach Seabaugh is another artist I've just recently become familiar with, but something about this song seems to hit pretty deep!
5. Love Better - CVBZ
This one is a VIBE. This is one that is going to hit better in the car with the windows down... might have this one in regular rotation for a while.
6. Only You - Eddie Benjamin, Alessia Cara
Eddie Benjamin is currently on tour with Justin Bieber and released an EP this year with some great tracks... pair that with Alessia Cara and we've got a great new track here.
7. Too Much - The Ivy
8. All My Loving - Sam Fischer
9. Just The Girl (Acoustic Version) - Landon Austin
We love a good cover... and this one brings back all the memories! Landon Austin covers Just The Girl by The Click Five in a soothing acoustic way... if you remember this one, I really think you're gonna like it!
10. Cross Your Mind - Calum Scott
Calum Scott truly has such a powerful voice... you may know him from his incredible cover of Dancing On My Own... and I think you'll really enjoy this original ballad of his.
11. CHAMPAGNE - Valley Remix
12. ... Worst Thing - Brooks Remix
I'm a fan of electronic dance music... so I gotta throw some of that in here! This is a fun mix that definitely makes you want to move!
13. Sober - Kbubs, KOOLKID
Closing this week's playlist with this track... because it truly is a summer vibe. Imagine sipping a glass of wine or a nice marg by the pool with this song setting the mood!
