Njomza: Minimalist comfy vibes with a hint of modern slang mirror Njomza’s lyrics and sound (Check out her lead single “Sad For You”). Cropped hoodies, comfy sweats, and basic hats all under $35. GIMME!
Blackbear: The Bear is always on top of what’s trendy. Distressed, oversized tees, small logos, etc. Most are basic colors while some items come in the custom Blackbear orange we all know and love.
Ariana Grande: Mixing street graffiti with classic color blocking. Each piece feels curated from the pop Queen herself. Sweatshirts, tees, bracelets, medical masks. Yes, you heard me right.
Harry Styles: Romantic nostalgia and feminine florals are sprinkled on every article of clothing. Not only does Harry spread happiness with his music but also a positive message on his merch that says, “Treat People With Kindness”.
Halsey: The official merch for the Hopeless Fountain Kingdom tour isn’t released yet, but it is absolutely going to be dope. Renaissance themes and bright lively colors are already flooding her HFK tour. Right now there’s a cute royal t-shirt and a gorgeous gold choker that reads “Hopeless”.
The sun is out, flowers are bloomed, and music is blasting out car windows. Some of these artists are featured on my spring playlist. Check them out!
Njomza has somehow captivated me. Her sound is so beyond unique. It’s the future of pop. Top track, “sad for you” is hauntingly beautiful highlighting a broken heart. Her vocals are breath-y perfection like a warm breeze in June. Pulling various musical genres out on “baggage” this Chicago native marries R&B, pop, and jazz in such a cohesive way that you crave more. She’s one to watch.
The Maine have somehow managed to continue to pump out dope rock/alt you can’t get out of your head. Their latest album, Lovely Little Lonely is a true homage to that sound. Tracks like “I Only Wanna Talk To You” and “Black Butterflies and Deja Vu” show the emotion behind rock that we often forget about. Lead singer, John O’Callaghan continues to tell romantic stories in his classic sultry fashion.
Sam Gellaitry makes you feel like you’re in a movie. Looking out a rainy car window, walking down a crowded street, watching a couple dance in a dark club. Gellaitry’s latest EP titled, Escapism ||| takes over your mind. “Acres” feels fresh, while “Jungle Waters” feels enchanting.
The Chainsmokers have finally released the full length album their fans have been waiting for. Although, Memories…Do Not Open is a little bit of a slower sound than the boys started out with, it still serves some serious heat. Singer, Emily Warren takes the lead on a couple tracks showing off her unique voice. “My Type” is a huge standout on the album with an elegant piano accompaniment and an incredible EDM drop we all needed to hear. R&B vet, Jhene Aiko also steals the show on “Wake Up Alone” keeping her sound while infusing a little bit of Chainsmoker serum…
Frank Ocean knows how to keep fans guessing. After the surprise release of his album, Blonde last August, people are wondering, will Ocean release another album this year? His latest single, “Biking” is an upbeat jam following in the footsteps of the trendy “Chanel” released in early March. “Biking” features a rap verse from Jay-Z and some jabs from Tyler the Creator. Only time will tell what’s next.
