The Best Songs of February 2024 // New Music Friday!

"Training Season (Extended)" // Dua Lipa Training season's (finally) over! Dua Lipa is back with another smash hit, "Training Season", which serves as the second single for her upcoming album. She previewed it at The Grammy's this month and I was counting down the days until I would be able to listen to it again! It's been on repeat ever since!  Much like "Houdini" , she also released an extended cut of the song, which I absolutely love even more than the standard version. The production is absolutely incredible!  I am so excited for the rest of her album ! "Deeper Well" // Kacey Musgraves Last month I mentioned that we were long overdue for new music from Kacey and it seems like she heard my call! "Deeper Well" is the title track of her upcoming album and it feels like a return to the Golden Hour sound. It is such a beautiful and reflective song, that lets her talents shine so brightly. Her album is coming out next mon

"seeing you tonight...it's a bad idea, right?" "bad idea, right?"   may actually be my favorite song by   Olivia Rodrigo   yet, it's just so addictive to listen to! It was my second most-played song of 2023 , so clearly I couldn't get enough of it!  The lyrics to this song are very tongue-and-cheek, written as if it's a conversation between friends, which in a way is what the song actually started as between her and her collaborator Dan Nigro, who produced and co-wrote the song.  "Yes, I know that he's my ex, but can't two people reconnect? I only see him as a friend, the biggest lie I ever said, oh, yes, I know that he's my ex, but can't two people reconnect? I only see him as a friend, I just tripped and fell into his bed" she sings in the chorus.  "I wrote it in New York. Me and my friend, Dan, were at  Electric Lady Studios , and I was telling him about one of my fun escapades. I sent this guy a text: 'seeing yo

"I Wanna Get Better" by Bleachers // 7" clear vinyl & 10 Year Anniversary!

"I didn't know I was broken 'til I wanted to change" Ten years ago, "I Wanna Get Better" was released as the debut single by Bleachers ! Looking at it now, it feels representative of the band's mission statement, the thesis of all Bleachers' music that was to come after. Everything from the past decade stems from this song and the deeply moving message behind it. I never really heard a song quite like it before and I have been forever changed ever since I first heard it.  Bleachers was at first meant to be a solo side project for Jack Antonoff , but over the years it has grown into so much more. At the time he was the guitarist in fun. and wrote much of Bleachers' debut album while touring with them. It has been so incredible to witness the evolution of Bleachers after all of these years. In that short amount of time, Jack would also go on to become one of the most influential producers and songwriters of the decade, collaborating with some of th

In 2023 , Post Malone made music history by being the first artist to have eight of his songs reach Diamond status, meaning he sold over ten million copies of each in the United States. The record was previously held by Bruno Mars , who currently has six Diamond singles himself. In February 2024, Post Malone once again made history by having the first ever Double Diamond song certified by RIAA with "Sunflower (feat. Swae Lee)". Since its release in 2018, the song has sold a record-breaking twenty million copies in the U.S. and its success has only continued to grow since its inclusion on the soundtrack for  Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and later his third album, Hollywood's Bleeding the following year. "Sunflower" rose to number one on the charts, making it Swae Lee's first and Post Malone's third time at number one. It ended up staying in the top ten for 33 weeks, at the time tying with "Girls Like You" by Maroon 5 & Cardi B and &qu
