Music is an escape for the soul, and there is no doubt that this year already has given us some bangers. Some of the songs on my list below came out in 2020, but they were too good not to include!

Anyone by Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber does it again by starting off the year with Bieber Fever. This new song is so catchy and is perfect for cruising around Blono.

Driver’s License by Olivia Rodrigo

It is no secret that this song has swept the nation sitting at number 1 on the charts the whole month. If you haven’t heard this song, maybe you have heard the drama associated with it between the singer, Olivia Rodrigo, Joshua Bennet, and Sabrina Carpenter. If you don’t know what I am talking about, do you live under a rock?

Drivers License by JXDN

If you thought the original version of Olivia Rodrigo’s Drivers License was amazing, you HAVE to hear Jaden Hossler’s spunky twist. Jaden Hossler is known for giving us those All Time Low and Machine Gun Kelley vibes in his music.

Hailey by WRENN

This song came out only a few months ago, but it SLAPS. This song by WRENN was created after she found out her ex-boyfriend cheated on her. She included audio recordings of her ex cheating at the end of the song and it is the definition of superior.

De Una Vez by Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez is the queen of creating songs her fans of all cultures can listen to. This song is in Spanish, but even those who do not understand the lyrics can still enjoy the melody.

Good Days by SZA

SZA is one of the most popular artists right now because of her consistent bangers that she releases every now and then. Good Days is a great song to vibe to in the car on a cruise or when you are in your bedroom.

Dangerous: The Double Album by Morgan Wallen

If you like country music, Morgan Wallen has great songs to listen to. All of his music are hits, and his new album Dangerous is just that.

Those are just some of the newer songs I have been listening to this month. Music is so interesting and fascinating to go through, so I hope some of these songs get added to your playlists!


Lot’s of Love,
