Fresh Music Friday: Miley Cyrus, SuperM, Fletcher and MORE!

Welcome to Fresh Music Friday; where every week we at The Honey POP will be giving you the lowdown on this week’s sweetest releases! Here’s your chance to see what your faves have been up to as well as discover some new music which you can easily fall in love with.

‘Midnight Sky’ – Miley Cyrus

Gets ready for some disco loving feeling with Miley Cyrus‘ new song ‘Midnight Sky’. Other than the groovy 80s vibe what catches our eyes is the outfit changes. Have a 70s/80s style wardrobe on hand? Looks like Miley took a few tips and pointers. From bell bottoms to rocking that short blonde hair, this is an all around trip. Following those observations, the lyrics were the icing on the cake. Miley seems to be embracing herself and newly appreciated independence. Some fans in the comments even went as far as to say this is reminiscent of Stranger Things.

‘100’ – SuperM

The “Avengers of KPOP” have dropped the first of two pre-releases from their new album, Super One! The song is called ‘100’, and SuperM definitely “go 100” in this song and beyond. The song is high-energy, and the music video that goes along with the song is as well. Each boy gets their shining moment, from Taemin and Baekhyun‘s powerful vocals to Mark and Taeyong’s raps, and then the center dance moments from Kai, Lucas, and Ten! It’s fast-paced, attention-grabbing, and the ultimate hype song. Get ready, because this is only beginning for this new era from SuperM! Consider us excited!

‘If I Hated You’ – Fletcher

The Fletchfam has been without much sleep with the excitement Fletcher has for us. The release of ‘If I Hated You’ was a wild ride but here it is! It’s emotional with a chorus that’s easy to dance to, but “it’d be easy, if I hated you.” Fletcher singing of knowing it’d be easier if she hated someone that knew she wished she could’ve loved better. It’s something that hits deep when we really think about it, but at the surface it’s a bop we can really dance to and enjoy! After hearing this, we’re even more excited for her EP the s(ex) tapes, but for now, we at Fresh Music Friday are excited for ‘If I Hated You’!

‘Levitating (The Blessed Madonna Remix)’ – Dua Lipa ft Madonna & Missy Elliott

Dua Lipa has stormed the scene skyrocketing into stardom. No signs of slowing down, she solidifies her stay by executing a single with icons Missy Elliot AND Madonna. Can you believe it? Well, you should. The remix incorporates the lovely soulful voices of Dua and Madonna and a sweet little treat called Missy Elliot. In perfect fashion, it’s a classic Missy flow that is ever so flawless. We think this remix rocks, and so should you.

‘Lit Bit’ – Blackbear

Blackbear is back this Fresh Music Friday with a heavy hitting solo tune this week. ‘lil bit’ is a track full of heavy bass lines, catchy lyrics and a drum beat we can’t help but have a dance to.

‘Laugh Now Cry Later’ – Drake ft Lil Durk

Oh Drake, baby, how we love you. ‘Laugh Now Cry Later’ ft. Lil Durk is a smash. Classic Drake, full of R&B vibes, we’ll be crying to this one for a while. Releasing hit after hit, this one is absolutely no different. Having Lil Durk on the track just makes us go even wilder. As for this song, we think it embodies everything great about Drake as an artist and thing this type of vibe suits him the best.

‘Lemonade’ – YUNGBLUD & Denzel Curry

Emo king YUNGBLUD is back this week with his latest single ‘Lemonade’ featuring Denzel Curry. It’s an upbeat anthem that we can’t wait to headbang to in our cars! We’re also in love with Denzel’s rapping too. The song is full of heavy rhythms that create a jerky funk, the entire song as a whole flows smoother than honey. Fresh Music Friday approved!

‘So Done’ – Alicia Keys ft Khalid

What do you get when you have two amazing vocalist on one track? an amazing listening experience. On Alicia Keys’s new track ‘So Done’ she is joined by another phenomenal vocalist, Khalid. The track and vocals are so smooth, as what we expect from these two. The music video is also what you imagine while listening to the song, just slow dancing with your s.o. We’ve all been waiting for this collab to finally happen and it was for sure worth the wait.

‘Hard Feelings Remix’ – Miquela ft Rvssian

Our robo- queen has done it again! Miquela featuring Rvssion on the ‘Hard Feelings’ Remix is so good. We always say “no hard feelings,” right? And do we mean it? This song touches that subject a little bit as they sing “I could say ‘no hard feelings’ but I’d be wrong.” It’s also a bop that we can really dance to, and overall? Just a song that we have “no hard feelings” about.

‘Losing You’ – Wonho

Get your tissues ready, because Wonho‘s new song, ‘Losing You,’ is an emotional one. The Pop-Ballad is a song for the fans, and the message Wonho has for them is beautiful. The music video starts with an image of Wonho crying, setting the tone for this moving song. His vocals are incredibly sweet, and it is undeniable the passion that he sings within his first solo song. With hard-hitting lyrics like, “cause losing me is better than losing you,” we are reminded of how special Wonho is; we have truly missed him and his music, and we cannot wait for more!

‘Show Me Love’ – Mali-Koa

Our queen Mali-Koa is back with a hauntingly beautiful rendition of ‘Show Me Love’. Originally the track was a 90’s party anthem but Mali’s new spin has turned it into a heartbreaking ballad. Her vocals shine through in abundance and we just can’t wait to hear her cover this live! It’s a track we’ll be playing on repeat all weekend while we try not to cry into a box of tissues.

‘Hard on Yourself’ – Charlie Puth & Blackbear

After that little tease Charlie Puth posted we feel right at home with the newest song opening. ‘Hard on Yourself’ was born by a little music exploration and fun. Charlie Puth and Blackbear team up to bring us a song we know you can get behind. After all… why are you so ‘Hard on Yourself’? When we say we added this song to our playlist so fast. It was only half over and we felt those gushing feels. On top of being a sick beat the lyrics are on point. The guys are pretty sweet laying out problems and more asking why you gotta be so ‘Hard on Yourself’. Catch that pick me up and warm hug from Charlie Puth and blackbear. It’s a nice dose of serotonin.

‘i disagree (more)’ – Poppy

Poppy’s i disagree (more) gives us more of that bone chilling grunge we love. This album is the deluxe version of Poppy’s i disagree. The deluxe gives us more songs and even more of the Poppy we’re coming to love. A total of 14 songs and a way too soon over 45 minutes of our time. We at Fresh Music Friday loved her performance and message in her song ‘i disagree’ released 10 months ago. Now we’re getting an extra 4 songs with the same aura. If you gotta problem with complacency, conformity, and corruption then you’ve come to the right place. It gets a little dark around here but the beats are heavy, Poppy is perplexing and lovely, its an all around good time. Go get the deluxe in your ears ASAP.
