Hey, hey, hey. Today marks the start of a brand new week in music. Much like the previous ones before, it’s sure to be chock-full of new releases from some of your favorite artists, bands, DJs, producers, etc. 

However, this article pertains to all things previously released; including an oh-so-familiar tune your elders may remember quite fondly.

Anyway, If you came here for the content and not for a long-winded intro, you’re in luck. Let’s cut to the chase.

DJ Snake - Westside Story

Ah, summertime is almost here! With only a few days left in the spring, DJ Snake recently dropped a new song that’s sure to make the next season something to remember. 

This track simply personifies the sunniest time of the year and accurately embodies breezing through the streets of Los Angeles with no roof during the hottest day of July. Moreover, this funk-infused tune makes you want to dance… even if you make yourself look like a complete and utter imbecile on the dancefloor amongst your friends and family.

Lastly, this track showcases Snake’s versatility. Turn Down For What is one of the famed DJ/Producer’s biggest hits. it mixes elements of both EDM and Trap music in a unique way. His new composition is a total contrast.

As you probably already know, the latest installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise hit theaters this May via the premiere of Fast X.

Aside from the flashy vehicles, thrilling race scenes, and splashes of humor spliced in; the franchise is also known for always possessing an A1 soundtrack for every feature film to boot.

Fast X is no different and the movie's last single is a stellar example. It's the combination of diverse styles blending together for 1 (technically 2) tracks that makes it all the more impressive. Bonus points for the beautiful piano melody that ties everything together like a neatly wrapped bow on Christmas.

Doja Cat - Attention

There was once a time when Doja Cat's detractors saw her as nothing more than a mere meme rapper who made music for clout with no substance. As her discography started to grow, that perception quickly disappeared.

But such as life, a scrutiny-free world will never come to be. Not for Doja Cat and not for anyone else, either. The Grammy Award winner addresses the criticism in her new song where she casually claps back.

Just don’t mistake Doja’s easygoing, laid-back flow for a mediocre effort. Her relaxed assail on cynics and critics regarding her appearance and skill make this track a must-listen.

Seals and Crofts - Summer Breeze

For some, this Billboard charter serves as a nostalgic recollection of what used to be. A time when life was easier and an era when things were a lot less complex.

Seals and Crofts may have created this song in the 70s, but it's continuously been covered, remixed, and updated for newer generations since that time.

Plus, there's no profanity in this one, so you won't feel ashamed about letting the kids hear it during a summer picnic.

Bel-Air star, Coco Jones recently released a track titled Double Back and it's a must-hear for any and all R&B fans. Plus, Bebe Rexha and Dolly Parton's Seasons duet is sure to warm your heart for more reasons than one.
