“Mermaids” - Florence + The Machine

“They come to drink, they come to dance to sacrifice a human heart,” sings Florence Welch on her new sea shanty that doubles as the soundtrack for your next witchy activities.

“Cheetah” - Jackson Wang

The funk is off the charts on Jackson Wang’s very fun and subtle new single, “Cheetah.”

“Put It On Da Floor” - Latto

After debuting the track at Coachella, Latto has shared the spitfire, possibly-directed-to-Nicki-Minaj message, “Put It On Da Floor.”

“Alone” - Kim Petras, Nicki Minaj

Speaking of Mrs. Minaj, she’s back in Barbie-mode as the bombastic feature on Kim Petras’ poolside-ready, Alice Deejay-sampling bop, “Alone.”

“손오공” - Seventeen

“Super” is one of SEVENTEEN’s most ambitiously choreographed singles, with an absolute squadron of dancers in formation for the pulse-racing hip hop track.

“Heartbreaker” - Birdy

This booming, ‘80s-inflected heartbreak anthem will rewrite what you think you know about Birdy’s music.

“Heartbeat” - yunè pinku

Londoner, DJ, and singer yunè pinku filters her chilled out, cosmic dance music through an intriguing, surrealist lens.

“Gimme A Chance” - Dreamer Isioma

Underneath the coasting and cool exterior of Dreamer Isioma’s “Gimme A Chance,” is a song about accepting anxieties and carving the time out to dance.

“Sad To Breathe” - The Japanese House

It’s exhilarating to hear The Japanese House’s latest track morph through pop, folk, and bluegrass over the course of three minutes.

“Sorrow” - Konyikeh

I was taken aback by London singer Konyikeh’s sturdy and rich voice, which is one in a million.
