Every week, we bring you our staff picks for freshly-cooked hits or songs that we can’t just take off repeat. New or old, these are the songs we’ve been listening to this week. To check out the full playlist, click here.
- “Love You For A Long Time” – Maggie Rogers
Near the end of her 2019 tour, Maggie Rogers gifted us with this soft rock melody that I can’t help but dance to. The NYU grad explained that she meant for the song to sound “as wild and alive as new love feels.” This single followed her debut album Heard It In A Past Life, which is also a must-listen. Since its release, Rogers received a well deserved Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. Stream “Love You For A Long Time” now! — Jaden
- “not ur friend” – Jeremy Zucker
Singer-songwriter and Colorado College alum Jeremy Zucker has been releasing constant content over the past year, “not ur friend” being the latest single he’s released in anticipation of his upcoming debut album love is not dying. The flippant, carefree vibes of the single encourage listeners to move on from a bad relationship. Zucker worked with Swedish producer Max Martin to create the track and describes the track as a “fun, matter of fact song about cutting a toxic person out of your life.” — Tiara
- “Dinosaurs in Love” – Fenn Rosenthal
A couple of months ago, little four year old Fenn (with the help of her singer/songwriter father Tom) wrote an adorable tune following the brief love story of two dinosaurs. Fenn’s eloquent lyrics will transport you to prehistoric times where dinosaurs go about their days having parties and “eating fruit and cucumber.” The giggly toddler ends the song with a rather tragic conclusion that you won’t believe, unless you’ve seen a National Geographic or… I don’t know, picked up a history book in the past millennia. All in all, a joy to listen to! — Jaden
- “Stupid Love” – Lady Gaga
Last seen in the hit film “A Star is Born,” Lady Gaga is back in the world of pop music! Released on February 28th, “Stupid Love” is the first single on Gaga’s upcoming album Chromatica (coming April 10th). Some think that this song is Gaga returning back to her roots of dance-pop music, and the music video is completely in line with that. Gaga said that her goal for this upcoming album is to “become part of her fans’ daily lives” and “make them happy every single day.” — Anna
- “On” – BTS
BTS, the seven-member South Korean boy group, just released their newest album Map of The Soul: 7. “On” is the title track and has a fast-paced drumbeat, melodic bridge and stunning music video. If you haven’t listened to BTS yet, honestly what are you doing with your life? They also just appeared as guests on two popular late-night shows, including James Corden’s hit segment “Carpool Karaoke” and Jimmy Fallon’s show where they participated in the “Subway Olympics” and performed “On” at Grand Central Terminal. — Oriel
- “The Other Side” – SZA & Justin Timberlake
Okay yes, this song is from the upcoming movie “Trolls: World Tour,” but it actually slaps. Released on February 26th, SZA & Justin Timberlake sing on this funky and upbeat single for the movie’s soundtrack. Both artists were thrilled to work together on this track, and they released a futuristic music video to go along with it. SZA says there “is an energy you can feel in the song and music video.” Check it out below, and maybe even go see the movie… — Anna
