Happy New Music Friday!

Every Friday, an avalanche of new music stampedes digital culture. It’s a full-time job to keep up with it (trust), so BreatheHeavy puts together a weekly cheat sheet for your convenience. Here are a handful of new tunes worth your undivided attention. After that, you’re on your own!

Jonas Brothers – “Greenlight” (Song)

The Jonas Brothers just released their No. 1 album, Happiness Begins, but that hasn’t stopped them from creating even more new music. They dropped a new song titled “Greenlight” for NBC’s hit TV show, Songland. On the Ryan Tedder-produced song, the guys sing about that warm, mushy feeling of falling in love. “Oh girl, I’d never change a thing about you, I fell in love with the way that you move,” Nick sings over a slinky beat crafted by Ester Dean. It may not have made the final album cut, but it remains a guilty pop pleasure.

Zara Larsson – “All The Time” (Song)

Zara Larsson put forth a dance-friendly new song with “All The Time” off her forthcoming third studio album. On it, the 21-year-old fantasizes about the good ol’ days with a former flame. The somber lyrics are disguised by an energetic beat and bubbly production crafted by Lotus IV. As the kids would say, issa bop.

Tiesto & Jonas Blue featuring Rita Ora – “Ritual” (Video)

Rita Ora is no stranger to cooking up a cut for the club. She’s featured on Tiesto and Jonas Blue’s EDM-tinged banger, “Ritual.” It’s got the makings of a hit – a pulsating beat, bouncing synths and an infectious chorus (happy solstice).

Major Lazer & Anitta – “Make It Hot” (Song)

If you loved “Sua Cara,” you’re in for a treat. Anitta teamed up with Major Lazer once more for a new electronic dance track titled “Make It Hot.” It’s no “Faz Gostoso,” but it’ll soundtrack your raunchy endeavors this summer quite perfectly.

Poppy – “Choke”

Poppy creates pop music that’s no doubt a lot strange, but terribly intriguing. Her latest venture into the obscure is “Choke,” which finds the singer, whose character is a commentary on the ridiculousness of pop culture, incessantly screaming the word “choke” over an ominous, electronic-grunge background. It’s bizarre, but worth a spin if you’re in a mood.

Shout-out to Rence and Noah Cyrus‘ new collab, “Expensive.”
