BTS, Lauve's K-Pop collab; Camila Cabello's Easy; Harry Styles' Lights Up: New music this week
Former Fifth Harmony member, Camila Cabello, will soon release her new album, Romance.
There is a lot of new music to discover every week, but so little time. Here is a selection of some outstanding songs released in the past few days that should find a place in your playlist.
BTS and Lauve - 'Make It Right'
Kpop band BTS and Lauve have collaborated on a new single titled 'Make It Right.' The much-awaited music video features footage from BTS' concerts while a heartwarming romantic animated love story between a young boy and girl forms the parallel narrative.
Camila Cabello - 'Easy'
Camila Cabello is slowly priming her fans for the release of her next album, Romance. After dropping 'Shameless', 'Liar', and 'Cry for Me', staying close to the theme of the record, she returned with 'Easy'. Cabello sings about the happiness she has found in her relationship over a simple beat.
Harry Styles - 'Lights Up'
Harry Styles charms in his new single, leaving the shadows of his boy band days to solidify his position as a standalone pop star. 'Lights Up' sees him shift from a '70s inspired sound (heard in his 2017 album) to a modern, soulful route. The song may not impress in the first listen but surely grows on you.
Michael Kiwanuka - 'Hero'
From his upcoming album KIWANUKA, comes 'Hero', a tribute to all the bravehearts, who lose their lives to violence and oppression. The accompanying powerful music video focuses on the Civil Rights movements in the US, and the icons associated with it. Another new track to listen to is the stunning, 'Piano Joint.'
Yuna ft Tyler, The Creator - 'Castaway'
Tyler the Creator and Yuna collaborate in 'Castaway', fresh off the latter's new record, Rogue. The Malayasian singer is airy and delicate as she expresses her discontentment in a relationship, while Tyler insists on parting ways.
Free Nationals ft Chronixx - 'Eternal Light'
