Happy New Music Friday: July 20, 2018 (if you’re reading this on a Saturday/Sunday I forgive you, but get it together).



Hi fam. Welcome to BreatheHeavy’s fourth New Music Friday post courtesy of Spotify (slaaay I stuck to something for an entire month).

Every Friday, I’ll share with you Spotify’s updated playlist of the most-recently released songs. You call it lazy, I call it efficient.

It’s not possible to fill you in on the ENDLESS stream of songs that spill onto the Internet every Friday (I just don’t want to), but this means you are quite possibly missing out on some very good new tunes, and that’s not the tea.


Anitta – “Medicina”

In case you’ve been living under a very large rock, Anitta is a main pop girl right now. She dropped a vibrant music video for her summer song “Medicina” today, and within in an hour of stroking the Internet it became the No. 1 worldwide Trending Topic on Twitter. RT for Brazil.



Becky G – “Zooted” featuring French Montana and Farruko

Unlike the rest of the world, America is sleeping on Becky G and it’s not OK. The pop star had one of the most-watched videos by any female in 2017 with “Mayores,” and she’s likely to top that with her latest visual for “Zooted.” Supa Dups’ infectious production soundtracks Becky’s visual where she throws a wild house party. Issa bop.




Steve Aoki – “Lie To Me” featuring Ina Wroldsen

Let super-producer Steve Aoki’s warm, tropical beat wash over you on “Lie To Me.” It features a sugary vocal performance from Ina Wroldsen. An intoxicating chorus wraps around Wroldsen’s hypnotic ~lie lie la la~ breakdown. Sups catchy.


Zedd – “Happy Now” featuring Elley Duhé

Zedd cooked up a magical beat to dance around Elley Duhé’s raspy vocals on “Happy Now.” Look, a million versions of this kind of song already exists, but I guess if it ain’t broke… Also, if you would have told me this was MO singing, I would have probably believed you (that’s a compliment).




Billie Eilish – “You Should See Me In A Crown”

Menacing, haunting, dark pop. Billie Eilish’s new tune will send chills down your spine. On it, the 16-year-old singer-songwriter’s voice trickles over a pulsating, ominous beat crafted by Finneas O’Connell. A refreshing change of pace from the tropical-EDM cuts!


Imagine Dragons – “Natural”

Imagine Dragons just unleashed a massive, radio-friendly anthem. It’s called “Natural,” a larger-than-life rock-pop track about overcoming the odds. “Living in a dog-eat-dog world can bring out the worst in you, and sometimes, the best,” frontman Dan Reynolds says in a press release. “It would be a lie to tell you I haven’t become somewhat skeptical about some things in the last decade of my life. However, I believe that when you truly learn to love yourself, the judging eyes and hateful words become meaningless. ‘Natural’ is about finding yourself and being willing and able to stand up to whatever adversity comes your way.”
