By Ronak Dsouza
It’s finally 2019 and that marks another year of great music to look forward to! While not as many full-length projects have been released recently, there are still a lot of great new songs to check out.
First, Kehlani starts off 2019 with a bop with the release of her new song, “Nights Like This.” In the track, Kehlani realizes that she was fooled by her lover into thinking that she had to stay with her. “Nights Like This” is very catchy showing off Kehlani’s light vocals. The song also features fellow R&B hitmaker, Ty Dolla $ign, with makes for an infectious tune due to the combination of the two’s voices.
Speaking of R&B, The Weeknd also enters 2019 with a banger with his feature on the song, “Lost In The Fire.” While The Weeknd is listed as a feature on the song, he is the star on the track with his enchanting voice and his lyrics. However don’t dismiss the main artist, Gesaffelstein, who creates a very catchy beat to match The Weeknd’s smooth vocals.
Finally, Billie Eilish asserts her prominence and dominance in pop and music, with her new track, “WHEN I WAS OLDER.” Eilish utilizes her signature soft singing style which creates a very ominous mood. This combined with the creepy beat, creates a very somber and unique listening experience. The song is a part of the soundtrack for the award-winning Netflix movie, ROMA.
Be sure to also give a listen to Normani and Sam Smith’s collaboration “Dancing With A Stranger,” Future’s songs “Jumpin On A Jet” and “Crushed Up”, Lana Del Rey’s new track “hope is a dangerous thing for a women like me to have – but I have it,” and the remix to Halsey’s hit single, “Without Me,” which features Juice WRLD.
