With midterms coming up soon, I need to relax every once in a while. Whether it is on the bus or before I go to sleep, I love to listen to music. It’s one of the best ways for me to escape and stop thinking about how crazy my life can be.
This is why today, I decided to share with you what’s been on my current playlist, as I have made a few discoveries.
Halsey – Badlands album // I only discovered Halsey very recently. Everyone I follow on Instagram was talking about her new album Badlands and how amazing it was, so I decided to give it a try. Needless to say that I fell in love with her music! All of her album is simply amazing. My favorite tracks are probably Strange Love, Haunting and Castle though.
Selena Gomez – Revival album // I have always been a huge fan of Selena, whether it as an actress or as a singer. Her tracks are usually full of life and make me want to dance around my room. This new album is a bit different. It came out only last week, but I can already say that it’s been on repeat. Revival is more personal, we get deeper into her feelings. Sure, there are still a few fun tracks that will make you move, but most of is slower, more emotional. My favorite tracks are definitely Revival, Me & My Girls and Body Heat.
Ellie Goulding – On My Mind // I’ve been a fan of Ellie Goulding for a while, so when I heard that she was coming out with a new album soon, I was very excited. This single is a bit different from what I’m used to from her, but I still love it all the same! It has catchy lyrics and a upbeat melody that will make you want to dance.
Demi Lovato – Confident // Demi has one of the most powerful voices I’ve ever heard. She can sing basically anything. Her slower songs are always making me emotional, because that’s how Demi does it. She can transmit feelings through her songs. This one is no different. Confident is the new single to the album of the same name. It’s catchy, upbeat and makes me feel like I can conquer the world.
Shawn Mendes – Stitches // Okay, I will admit that I’m not really a fan of Shawn. Not that I have anything against him, but I don’t know, I just don’t really listen to his music. But when I heard he did an acoustic cover of his own song with Hailee Steinfeld, I was a bit curious. I absolutely love the cover, but I also like the original one!
And here is the acoustic version with Hailee Steinfeld, in case you’re curious.
Justin Bieber – What Do You Mean (acoustic) // I absolutely love Justin’s music, despite everything that happened in his life in the last few years. I wouldn’t call myself his biggest fan, but I do love his songs. I think he’s an incredible performer, a great writer and an amazing vocalist. What Do You Mean? is his newest single for his new album Purpose. While I love the original one, I think the acoustic version he did of it is even better. You must listen to this!
One Direction – Drag Me Down // Don’t ask me why, but I’ve never been a fan of One Direction. Sure, I did listen to their most popular singles, but I think I wasn’t really understanding all the hype around them. When I listen to Drag Me Down, I just couldn’t stop myself: I had it on repeat for days! I can even honestly say that I know the song by heart. It’s the first single the boyband produced without Zayn, but I still think it’s one of their best yet (but don’t get me wrong, I loved Zayn’s voice). I’m actually looking forward to their new album!
Fifth Harmony – I’m In Love With a Monster // Fifth Harmony are some of the best girl vocalists I’ve heard. I’m In Love With a Monster is a track featured on Hotel Transylvania 2‘s soundtrack, and it has everything to make it your new jam! Catchy lyrics, upbeat melody, amazing voices… it’s the perfect song to jam to! And it also fits the Halloween season quite well. 😉
