Music has been a big part of my life since I was born. Music has been helping me get through a lot of hard times. That's why you will almost always find me listening to music, whether it's in the car or simply working behind my computer.
Music for me has no boundaries: I listen to lots of it, from pop to any local tastes. Usually, if dance, sing, or chill myself to it, it means I officially like it. I'm open to any kind of music and for that, I thanked digital music services like TuneIn or Spotify, which always got me updated with millions kinds of music.
Lately, I've been enjoying a lot of new music, but there are songs that I just constantly listened to, though not all are really newcomers. Almost all of them are pretty chill sounding that I've been listening to it nonstop.
John Mayer - Moving On and Getting Over
Finally! I think this song is John Mayer's greatest piece ever since Gravity. Dope beats over guitar play, which always be Ed Sheeran's signature, but sure sounds great on John too. To be honest, I like this more than the previously-released Love on the Weekend, with the upbeat funk flare. It still sounds like the typical John Mayer, but there's something different that makes the song an obvious standout for his latest album The Search for Everything.
Zayn (ft. Taylor Swift) - I Don't Wanna Live Forever
This is totally a more proper 50-shades sequel soundtrack than Ellie Goulding's Love Me Like You Do. It comes out dark and way sexier than Love Me Like You Do. It really embraces pain and BDSM context, just like what the film brings out. But, I hate to see Taylor Swift here, since I think she just doesn't fit to any dark and murky songs. I wonder how Selena Gomez would do this song with Zayn.
Rich Chigga - Dat $tick
Just recently I binge-listened to Rich Chigga and I love it! He immediately become my most favorite Indonesian rapper, even my favorite after Kendrick Lamar and Eminem! I love where Rich Chigga's going with his songs: talking about real problems where he come from. It's like Rich Chigga's trying to educate the world through dope music and beats.
Beyonce - Hold Up
Hold up, I think I don't really have something best to praise any Beyonce's songs. It's just brilliant, also I fucking love the music video, as always.
Bruno Mars - Too Good to Say Goodbye
Every time Bruno Mars has a new piece going on, I always feel like it will be epic. Like this song, which I favor the most of all songs in his latest album (believe me, choosing one is HARD). This is just too good. Bruno Mars is always able to make his songs sound like he sings it in a good mood. And that's also what I feel while listening to his songs and singing along with it.
The 1975 - Somebody Else
Is it too late that just now I'm obsessed with The 1975? Well, all blame on me. At first I thought they were just another One Direction or 5 Seconds of Summer kinda group, but I was totally wrong. Somebody Else is their first rendition that I listened and went straight making me captivated. It's rather different from their other records, with the slow jam and emotional lyric. It's honestly haunting with the almost-whispering vocal.
Marc E Bassy - You & Me
This song is basically sounds like summer, with the reggae-pop beat and the funky vibe. The lyric itself is so simple, another break-up rendition, where the guy wants his girl to just forget him. Simply reminding that "it's not 'us' no more, it's just 'you' and 'me'". And although it's a kinda break-up song, it's a perfect tune to be listened to while relaxing at the beach.
Cashmere Cat (ft. Selena Gomez) - Trust Nobody
I don't know why, but this song just sounds perfect. Selena Gomez sounds impressive with her groan-like singing and decorative autotune. The mix is what you usually would expect from her late tracks. It's absolutely a classic banger and it's so much fun to listen to.
Ed Sheeran - Shape of You
Ed Sheeran always knows how to create a hot pop song. I know this latest track of him is a little off from his usual great works. The arrangement's still great, but comes to the lyric... nope. Every time I listen to the song, what I hear are mostly his cheap pick-up lines and boring cliches. But, still I couldn't take this sing out of my head, so this might pass a dance jam.
