New month, new music. A slew of songs was dropped as February gave way to March, offering music lovers a variety of fresh tracks to add to their playlists. While the beginning of the month seems to have already been taken over by the sudden release of new music from the formerly disbanded Jonas Brothers, it is not to forget that other great artists just dropped some new singles as well. Here are five brand new, playlist-worthy songs to check out.
Jonas Brothers: “Suckers”
In case you missed it, yes—the Jonas Brothers are back together and better than ever. After days of speculation, the Jonas Brothers announced Feb. 28 via social media that they would drop their new single at midnight. The song, titled “Sucker,” shows how smitten the brothers are with their leading ladies. “You say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly,” the song says. “I am a sucker for all the subliminal things no one knows about you.” In fact, Danielle Jonas (Kevin’s wife), Priyanka Chopra Jonas (Nick’s wife) and Sophie Turner (Joe’s fiancé) also took the lead in the song’s music video. Whether you’re a long-time Jonas Brothers supporter or a new fan, the colorful pop-rock song will have you dancing in your seat.
Carly Rae Jepsen:“Now That I Found You” & “No Drug Like Me”
Carly Rae Jepsen is hoping to catapult back into the charts with her two brand new songs “Now That I Found You” and “No Drug Like Me,” which were both released on Feb. 27. “Now That I found You” details the rush of excitement you get when you find that special someone, while “No Drug Like Me” seems to be a darker tune from Jepsen; one that is both an ode and challenge to love. These tracks come after her single “Party for One,” which was released late last year. They are suspected to be off an upcoming album.
Juice WRLD: “Hear Me Calling”
The 20-year-old rapper released his most recent single“Hear Me Calling” one week before his sophomore album Death Race for Love drops. The Purps on The Beat-produced track gives off island vibes as its lyrics depict Juice WRLD hoping a girl gives him a chance to win her heart. “Do you hear me calling?” he says, “I don’t want no drama.” It’s much calmer then his last single called “Robbery,” in which the 20-year-old opens up about heartbreak.
Tainy, Selena Gomez, Benny Blanco & J Balvin: “I Can’t Get Enough”
Selena Gomez is back with a new collaboration with producers Tainy and Benny Blanco and Colombian singer J Balvin. The song fuses Latin flare with electronic vibes to give a sexy, fun bop that Balvin believes will be a “worldwide hit.” Gomez sings the first verse and chorus in English, which leads into a fiery second verse in Spanish by Balvin. It’s a pop and reggaeton mix that will lead you to the dance floor.
James Bay: “Peer Pressure” ft. Julia Michaels
While this song is a bit older than the just-released songs above, the intimate live-performance video for “Pressure” debuted last week. The song is an emotional ballad about how the right person can swoop in and break down your walls. “I don’t usually give into pressure, but I’ll give into yours,” Bay sings as he accompanies on guitar. It’s a sweet, soft song that’s the perfect backdrop to a cozy night.
