“Ocean Eyes” is just that; a romantic blue hued ode to love. “Can’t stop staring at those ocean eyes,” utters newcomer Billie Eilish. Her nonchalant syllables and steady quick tap beat make you wish you were in love. She highlights the beauty of falling in love with someone through the eyes to the soul. That’s a deep theme from a 14-year-old girl. Eilish recently told Vogue her brother wrote “Ocean Eyes”; “He came into my room in October of last year to tell me he had this song called “Ocean Eyes.” He’d been doing it with his band before, but of course I’d heard it because I was right next door. I sang it, and we both loved it.” She went on to say, “I loved it and I couldn’t get it out of my head for weeks.” A poetic homage to love painted by a 14-year-old, how amazing is music?

Bieber fever is coming back in full swing. This time it’s with DJ Snake for his new album Encore. The pop stars’ sensual voice sways into a pulsing chorus, reminiscent of Snake’s collab with Major Lazer, “Lean On.” Bieber sings, “Don’t you give up now, I won’t give up now, let me love you, let me love you,” in a pleading voice you can’t help but succumb to. The solid mix of relaxation and snap happy undertones make you feel glowed and happy. DJ Snake has mixed “Let Me Love You” to succeed across several genres.

You might know him as the adorably lovable Augustus in the movie adaptation of “The Fault In Our Stars,” but what most people don’t know about Ansel Elgort is that he is also a mega-talented singer/musician/producer. Elgort has used his Instagram to show off his skills to his fans. His first single is called, “Home Alone” a pop driven tune that utilizes his DJ skills for a tinge of EDM throughout. He told Yahoo! Music, “Originally, it was going to be over a dance record, but that didn’t feel right…So I thought, maybe I can just do production for it so that it makes it electronic and emotional.” The lyrics are pure poetry as Ansel’s voice glides effortlessly on every word. The critic’s agree that “Home Alone” is your new song of the summer.

Electro pop is what comes to mind when you hear Broods’ new song, “We Had Everything.” A thudding skip-beat follows lead singer Georgia Nott’s gentle pipes as she sings, “We were young, we were proud, we were promising.” You can almost see the indie film playing in the background; two young kids, crazy in love, running down moonlit streets, kissing in diner windows. It’s no doubt this brother-sister duo have made a name for themselves in the alternative genre. Their new album Conscious proves their powerful lyrical content is here to stay. “Everything” focuses on a naïve young relationship and all the good that comes with it, knowing that mistakes are inevitable. As usual, synths lead this song into a solid head-bopper you can’t resist but blast in your car.

Just when you thought you were off the Anti high… Rihanna comes back for more and teams up with Mike Will Made-It on “Nothing Is Promised.” In classic Rihanna banger fashion, she brags about shopping in Paris, money, cars, vacations, money, and did I mention money?? “Ten million in cash, put up in a stash, it’s under my mattress,” the Barbados-born singer confidently half raps. “Promised” is the newest addition to your workout playlist. Rih proves her crossover from pop star to hip-hop sensation is alive and dope as hell. She doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, and that’s okay with me.
