Shape of You – Ed Sheeran
After releasing his new album, Divide (÷), just a few days ago on March 3rd, multiple songs from the new Ed Sheeran album have sky rocketed on the charts. As it stands today, 8 of his songs from the new album have hit the top 100 songs on the Billboard charts. It is no surprise after he released two songs back in January, Shape of You and Castle on the Hill, that the rest of the album would be as spectacular. Shape of You is currently the number 1 song in multiple countries across the world. Shape of You has a catchy beat and lyrics that are memorable, so memorable that you will have them memorized by the end of the day. If you haven’t heard it yet, you’re missing out!
Something Just Like This – The Chainsmokers feat. Coldplay
It is no secret that Chris Martin from Coldplay is a bit of a lyrical genius, and this song is no different. Teaming up with the ever popular DJ duo The Chainsmokers, the artists have created an uplifting electronic dance jam. With inspiring lyrics and a theme that will leave you wanting to hear more, Something Just Like This is the kind of tune we have been waiting for from Coldplay. The song starts off slow, featuring the sweet voice of Chris Martin before it picks up in the chorus and the electronic beat kicks in. The song has a sweet rise and the lyrics talk of a powerful and sudden love that makes you want something just like that. This is the first collaboration between The Chainsmokers and Coldplay – and we sure hope it isn’t the last.
It Ain’t Me – Kygo feat. Selena Gomez
While most songs on the charts sing about love, desires, and dreams, this collaboration between Kygo and Selena Gomez weirdly doesn’t. The song starts off with a catchy electronic guitar beat where shortly after Selena Gomez kicks in with the vocals. The song almost has a country feel to it mixed with electronic and house beats, which makes it memorable and unusual. As the song continues, the beat picks up and the listener understands that maybe what’s seemingly right, isn’t right at all. The song is inspiring in its nature because it holds a strong message of letting go when something isn’t right for you. This is the first collaboration between the much loved Kygo and pop star Selena Gomez. The song will leave you wanting to hear more from the team, and with its high stance on the charts, who knows, maybe they will team up again and create something as magical! Plus, everyone loves whisky neat, don’t they?
Scared To Be Lonely – Martin Garrix feat. Dua Lipa
In the running theme of epic collaborations that result in an upbeat, edgy, and dance worthy electronic track, young DJ Martin Garrix is back with his latest tune. Teaming up with Dua Lipa, an English singer-songwriter, the duo have created an inspiring, but slightly emotional, electronic jam. With his usual catchy and unique combination of instruments, Martin Garrix starts the track with an electronic orchestral sound. Dua Lipa sings about a love between two people that turns sour but the two lovers can’t seem to let go. Similar to the tune created by Selena Gomez and Kygo, this song also makes you re-think things that may not be meant for you. The song is inspiring in a sense and places a high value on memories, love, and loneliness. Scared To Be Lonely is slowly making its way up the charts, so if you haven’t heard it yet, you most likely will.
Chained To The Rhythm – Katy Perry feat. Skip Marley
Like much of her pop music, the latest song from Katy Perry is unmistakably catchy and totally dance worthy. With inspiring lyrics and a great beat, Chained To The Rhythm may be one of Katy Perry’s most popular songs since the release of I Kissed A Girl way back when. The song has lyrics that make you think and there may be some political digs thrown in with a focus on creating inspiring music that helps us become more conscious of what’s going on in the world around us. This song is definitely unique because it features Skip Marley who is none other than the grandson of the legendary Bob Marley. Skip Marley tunes in with a verse of his own and he is definitely talented to say the least.
