‘Don’t Stop’ – Oasis

Nothing like a long lost demo to hype fans up for a possible comeback? Maybe not but Oasis has released a demo song called ‘Don’t Stop’. “Don’t be sad and don’t cry” because you can listen to it today. No waiting, we promise. It’s got a nice laid back guitar and vocals that Oasis is known for. Right now we’re chilling out throw some rain and storm but the sunshine will come. “Lazy days and sunny rays will guide me. Back home to where I belong.” and right back to Oasis for a nostalgia trip. Join us and listen to ‘Don’t Stop’.

‘If The World Was Ending’ – JP Saxe, Julia Michaels & friends

During times like these, we’ve learned that nothing can stop us from coming together, even when we’re apart. As each day is filled with heartbreaking news, Julia Michaels and JP Saxe have united a number of artists to bring us a rainbow to help us through the rain. Covering their song ‘If the World Was Ending’, the duo has created the ultimate collab including the likes of Niall Horan, The Rose, Anne Marie, Fletcher, Kesha, Noah Cyrus, Sam Smith, plus many more from the comfort of their own homes. The beautiful cover sends shivers down spines and brings tears to eyes as the lyrics are given a new meaning.

The single is in aid of fundraising for Doctors Without Borders, who are on the front line in countries across Europe and North America during these difficult times, so this song is really something special, and we at Fresh Music Friday hope you will support the song and the cause.

‘Savage (Remix)’ – Megan Thee Stallion featuring Beyoncé

Two Houston baddies get together for the remix we didn’t see coming. Who knew Beyonce had bars? Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Savage’ is already a viral hit, and adding Queen Bee made it blow up even more! In her own words “I sneezed on the beat and the beat got sicker.” Since its release fans have been loving this collaboration. And what’s even better is that all proceeds from the song will go to Houston based disaster relief organization Bread of Life.

‘Ridin” – NCT Dream

NCT Dream are ‘Ridin” in style in their title track! This fast-paced groovy beat showcases what Dream do best; ace harmonies and perform with their last breath. A combination of step and popular dances, they bring out a powerful performance that shows off the growth they’ve had as a group! This may be the final comeback of the Dream we know of, but we’re excited to see the future of the members of NCT Dream!

During the new normal of the world, we are all in need of some motivation to keep striving and that is exactly what Queen + Adam Lambert has to offer us. Taking the classic ‘We Are The Champions’, the iconic Brit band has given it a revamp and dedicating it to the incredible people working hard on the frontline during the pandemic. Proceeds raised from the track will go to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization (WHO), powered by the United Nations Foundation.

‘Be Kind’ – Marshmello & Halsey

We’re truly being treated to iconic collabs at Fresh Music Friday today! Halsey and Marshmello have collaborated on a song with a message ‘Be Kind’. The premiere happened at midnight on May 1st.

Be everything and more to the one that you love, go and get in on the wonderful artwork and sweet mellow vibes. “I don’t know why you hide from the one And close your eyes to the one Mess up and lie to the one that you love” and with that being said, go check out the ‘Be Kind’ music video right now.

‘Wrong Places’ – H.E.R

H. E. R. is here to bless us with new music, and it’s even more amazing than we expected. Her new song, (which she chose from Songland!) ‘Wrong Places’ hits us right in our R&B feels, with the perfect tempo and energy that feels like a summer night drive. The lyrics resonated with us, especially as we’re lonely in this quarantine. We may be a little lonely, but H. E. R. will be keeping us company as we stream this song on repeat!

‘Say So (Remix)’ – Doja Cat ft Nicki Minaj

Doja Cat releases a remix of her already popular, upbeat track ‘Say So’. this song is already a TikTok viral jam, so how do you make it better? By adding Nicki Minaj of course! Nicki adds a whole new level, to what was already a banger. Her rap verses are so catchy, it’ll be stuck in your head in no time. With lyrics about quarantining it is perfectly on point and set to be just as popular as the original! Fresh Music Friday approved.

‘Missed Calls’ – MAX ft Hayley Kiyoko

We saw those ‘Missed Calls’ and we just gotta say MAX isn’t waiting around anymore. In fact, say hello to the feature on this song Miss Hayley Kiyoko. The duo makes some pretty melodies together. “I’ve been scrolling through these photos of us lately Wondering if we still had a shot Your name’s carved in a tree inside my heart” old school love is good and all, even romantic, but don’t miss your chance, playing hard to get is so old school. Jump on this while it’s fresh and listen to ‘Missed Calls’ by MAX ft. Hayley Kiyoko.

‘My Oh My (Remix)’ – Camila Cabello ft DaBaby & Gunna

“My Oh My’ is getting a facelift in the way of a remix that now features Gunna. It’s a full cast and we are dancing before we even hear it. The song is great, we can’t deny that but by adding new verses and beats Da Baby and Gunna really light it up. Maybe the next TikTok craze? Feel untouchable and listen to ‘My Oh My’ Remix by Camila Cabello ft DaBaby and Gunna. We at Fresh Music Friday are in love!

‘Eleven (Remix)’ – Khalid ft Summer Walker

We wish we could give you eleven reasons to check out the ‘Eleven’ remix but unfortunately, we just do not have enough space. Khalid’s ‘Eleven’ was already a vibe from the beginning but with Summer Walker hopping on the track, it’s even better! The whole song has a “driving with the windows down on a summer night with someone you care about” vibe to it. It really has us dreaming of summer nights. And we can’t forget the vocals! Khalid and Summer’s voices flow together so well and it makes the track even more enjoyable. We can’t really enjoy summer nights the traditional way right now, but listening to this song will definitely help you get close to that summer night’s vibe. We guarantee you’ll love this remix as much as we at Fresh Music Friday do.

‘Bloody Valentine’ – Machine Gun Kelly

Hello, old school, summer days and maybe some love? We gotta admit, even we sometimes swoon for Machine Gun Kelly but this little vibe he’s got going feels too right. ‘Bloody Valentine’ is the latest song to enter this world on May 1st. A new month, a new guy? By the lyrics, we can tell that maybe, MGK is looking for something hella real. He’s been showing off his passion and versatility lately withe various online gigs and appearances. Might want to catch the MGK wave before it’s gone if you know what we’re saying “Tonight if I could just have you Be my, be my, baby”. Here’s to luck and fate, give ‘Bloody Valentine’ a listen.

‘I Know Alone’ – HAIM

This song is possibly the most quarantine fitting song that wasn’t even written about quarantine at first. HAIM’s ‘I know Alone’ is so heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time, “I know alone like no one else does.” It feels like we can all relate to that lyric, and to the song as a whole. The video is a choreographed six-feet-apart dance with the members, going slowly then speeding up at the end. The song, the video, everything is perfect. Now, we’re off to learn that choreo for their dance!

‘I Like It When You Love Me’ – Oh Wonder

Oh Wonder just reminded us how amazing they are. Actually, they just put out a new song, but that definitely reminded us how amazing they are. ‘I Like It When You Love Me’ is so good, and we can all relate to it. The vocals are tender and delicate and make the song so beautiful, while at the same time making us feel things we didn’t know we could feel. The fact that they made this song in quarantine makes it even more impressive, making music to help the world “make sense of it all.” Music truly has been a blessing at this time, and Oh Wonder has definitely contributed to it.

Quarantine Queen – Todrick Hall

It’s safe to say that Todrick Hall has officially won the quarantine game. Seriously, his Quarantine Queen EP is the perfect soundtrack to your life in the era of the COVID-19 quarantine. Every song is a high energy, high danceability bop and overall just lots of fun! Not to mention, Todrick really captures the multifaceted struggles of quarantine. If you’re sad about graduation and prom being cancelled, ‘Mas(K)ot’ will hype you back up like the queen you are! Landlord on your case? Partying along to ‘Rent’ will help you drown that out! Todrick must have read our minds or something because this EP perfectly captures quarantine life but still puts a fun spin on it. You definitely do not want to miss out on this EP!
