It’s that time of year – back to work and school without that holiday cheer. Worry not, New Music Friday is here! Luckily, we can escape with brand new tracks from Bad Child, Lana Del Rey, and Ariana Grande in a powerhouse trio to spice up the new year! Check out this playlist to reflect on the best songs of 2020 and get excited for what’s to come.
“De Una Vez” by Selena Gomez
They say love has no language, and you’ll understand exactly what they mean when you hear Selena Gomez’s brand new song, “De Una Ves.” Sung completely in Spanish, you don’t have to know the words to experience this trance-inducing beat.
“34+35 Remix” by Ariana Grande featuring Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion
Can’t get enough of Ari? Neither can we. Just when we thought Positions couldn’t get any more flawless, this remix of “34+35” comes along to blow us away, yet again. Featuring powerhouse icons Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion, Arianators have endless ways to fall in love again and again.
This release came as a surprise to fans as the killer artwork dropped earlier that day, and luckily, they didn’t have to wait long! “34+35” is a fan favourite, having gone platinum and charted at #16 on Spotify Canada’s Top 50. Listen to “34+35” Remix ft. (feat. Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion) here.
“1,000,000” by Bad Child
“1,000,000” is the first single introducing BAD CHILD’s upcoming album, Free Trial, following the release of his recent EP entitled COVERS. Fans are sure to fall for BAD CHILD’s emotionally charged songs and genre-bending realness.

“Bottled Up” by Soran
During lockdown, it’s easy to feel “Bottled Up.” In his newest single, singer-songwriter Soran tells us exactly how he feels – and that honesty is what we love about him. When he’s not writing vulnerable, honest, and heart-felt lyrics, you can find Soran on TikTok covering his favourite songs with a unique flair.

“Masterpiece” by DaBaby
Something tells us that 2021 is going to be DaBaby’s year. His 2020 single, “Rockstar ft. Roddy Ricch,” and his appearance on Dua Lipa’s “Levitating” made him a pop music heavyweight, and he isn’t stopping there. Soon, DaBaby will be on every billboard (hint: check Yonge and Dundas Square today!).

“Printemps Blanc” by La Zarra
In “Printemps Blanc,” La Zarra is back to revamp her 2016 collaboration with Niro, elevating it with a sexy new sound. This release follows her most recent cover, “À l’ammoniaque / Mon dieu,” which is quickly climbing the charts. This is only the beginning for La Zarra, so keep an eye out for her in 2021.

“Bad Boy” by Juice WRLD feat. Young Thug
“Bad Boy feat. Young Thug” was the last music video Juice WRLD filmed before he passed, and it only seems right to share it with his beloved fans to remember him by.

“Chemtrails Over The Country Club” by Lana Del Rey
Dreamy and hypnotic – two words that accurately describe any Lana Del Rey song. This track is sure to soothe any anxiety heading into the new year because, let’s face it, we’ve all been there. “Chemtrails Over The Country Club,” Lana adds a unique twist to her charming vocals, leading us into a brand new era. This track follows highly-anticipated ballad “Let Me Love You Like A Woman,” released back in October 2020.

“This Is How You Fall In Love” by Jeremy Zucker and Chelsea Cutler
From heart-wrenching to heart-warming, together they do it all. Following their last release, “You Were Good To Me,” the duo released “This Is How You Fall In Love,” a love song so sugary-sweet, we forgot the heartbreak! Although Jeremy and Chelsea are just friends, we can’t help but swoon when their voices come together. The chemistry is real! The two met years ago and released an EP called ‘brent’ in 2019, which was extremely well-received, and are back again in 2021. Don’t worry, we have tissues!

“Girls Like Us” by Zoe Wees
At just 18 years old, Zoe Wees is shaping up to be 2021s next ‘it’ girl, quickly gaining traction all over the world with her single, “Girls Like Us.” The song addresses the desire to be conventionally beautiful and the pressure that puts on young girls. Many fans have already expressed their appreciation; the music video premiered just yesterday and has already gathered nearly 30k views! Everyone loves her, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for Zoe Wees.
