Welcome back to my monthly Fuzzable blog!
Last month, I told you all about my trip of a lifetime to New York and Los Angeles. Ever since coming home, I’ve just felt really flat. Between having too many zero motivation days to a lot of things happening in my personal bubble, it’s been a bit of a ‘meh’ month to say the least.
One of my saving graces for when I’m not feeling 100% is music. Luckily, there’s been plenty of new music releases over the past few weeks to bring a little sparkle into my life.
Here are nine songs which have been the soundtrack to my month.
‘One Kiss’ – Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa
Funnily enough, I first heard ‘One Kiss’ whilst out in America and after the first listen, I found the song to be a bit underwhelming. Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa are two of my favourite artists and I guess I just expected something different. However, the track made its way into my brain without me realising, and I found myself humming along to it the next day having only listened to it once half-heartedly. Now, I’m obsessed with the bop!
‘No Tears Left To Cry’ – Ariana Grande
This song is just everything. Again, it’s not what I expected from Ariana Grande but it’s a goddamn banger and that’s all that needs to be said about it. (P.S the chorus is my absolute fave, I just wish I had Ari’s vocals to do it justice haha).
‘Stop Me From Falling’ – Kylie
I’m not usually a fan of Kylie and/or country music but it seems that no-one was able to ‘Stop Me From Falling’ for this song….had to be done haha. You cannot help but sing this chorus at the top of your lungs.
‘Familiar’ – Liam Payne and J Balvin
I have always been a boyband lover (as you may have read in a previous blog of mine) however, I never really bought into the One Direction craze. Don’t get me wrong, they had great songs, but I just didn’t really take to them as people. However, since they all went solo I’ve really been enjoying Liam and Zayn’s music in particular. Liam’s new single is the Spanglish J Balvin assisted ‘Familiar’ and let me tell you, if it doesn’t get inside your brain within thirty seconds then there’s something wrong. This song is such a bop and one we’ll be hearing a lot more of this summer I’m sure.
‘The Way I Am’ – Charlie Puth
I AM O B S E S S E D WITH THIS SONG!!! That opening guitar! Charlie’s voice! Words cannot and will not do it justice. It’s by far my favourite song from his new album Voicenotes, and I just hope he tours the UK soon because I need to hear this song live.
‘Make Your Own Gold’ – MARC and Scott Ritchie
I could write a 1000 word essay on this song and its importance to me/in general but I won’t bore you with it. Long story short, Scott is one of my favourite people in existence. I have been a fan of his for almost six years and he is without one of the most talented and passionate artists in the business. He’s been through so much but he’s still going strong and creating some of the most amazing music, something which truly inspires me. He wrote MARC’s new single ‘Make Your Own Gold’ and also blesses us with his vocals on the track too. I’ve genuinely had it on repeat since it came out on Friday.
‘Genius’ – LSD
Okay so I don’t know whose idea it was to bring Sia, Diplo and Labrinth together to form a supergroup but they need to be paid all the money in the world. I am hooked on this song, and I want to thank Sia and Lab for serving us all the vocals and Diplo for his amazing production.
‘Jump’ – Julia Michaels featuring Trippie Redd
Julia Michaels is my queen. I have so much respect for her as an artist – not only is she a prolific songwriter (responsible for so many of this century’s biggest songs), but she is also a superb talent in her own right. I really hope that her new single ‘Jump’ gives her the success she deserves.
‘Toy’ – Netta
I heard this song a few weeks before the Eurovision final on the weekend and I immediately said that it would be the winning song. Now I’m mad that I didn’t place a bet on it as I could have made my millions and be on my way back to America! It will forever haunt me, as will the times I knew Darren Miller was going to be Heather Trott’s baby daddy in Eastenders and that the Queen would wear yellow at Wills and Kate’s wedding but I didn’t put a bet on. In all seriousness though, ‘Toy’ is a bop and a half, a female anthem, and just brilliantly bonkers. The best lady won in my eyes.
