Fresh Music Friday: Yungblud, Little Mix, Baekhyun… 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.

‘Not A Pop Song’ – Little Mix

Little Mix are weeks away from dropping their sixth studio album Confetti but not before dropping their latest single ‘Not A Love Song,’ perhaps one of their most personal songs to date. Singing to a simple guitar strumming and gentle rap beats, the girls tell the tale of past struggles they’ve faced in the industry. It wouldn’t be a Little Mix song without killer harmonies which this song is full of as well as the quartet singing in unison on the chorus which is of emotion that screams strength and unity. We look forward to the day we can belt our hearts out along with the girls to this pure banger. Fresh Music Friday approved!

‘Happy’ – Baekhyun

Baekhyun is back with yet another OST. ‘Happy’ is Baekhyun’s 4th OST this year alone. He really is not letting us starve this year and we appreciate it. Baekyhun’s vocal range and power are unbelievable and ‘Happy’ is a beautiful ballad that shows it off nicely. His voice is incredibly soothing and captures this K-Dramas essence beautifully. We are totally obsessed and recommend you add this to your playlist right now!

‘PSYCHE’ – Joohoney (Monsta X)

If you decide to check out Joohoney’s newest mixtape, PSYCHE, (which you should), you must listen to it in track order. The mixtape tells Joohoney’s journey, particularly his journey as a musician and a person within the last year. The mixtape is honest, and the way Joohoney tells his story through these seven tracks is musical genius. We can’t get enough of these tracks, which showcase different music styles and beats that are both familiar and new when it comes to Joohoney’s music. It is a treat to listen to, and you will be better for doing so.

‘Touch Me (Remix)’ – Victoria Monet ft Kehlani

Victoria Monét originally released ‘Touch Me’ earlier this year, but this remix of the song that features Kehlani is one of our new favorite songs. What Kehlani has brought to the song just gives it a new flare. We can’t help but want to listen again and again. This is a must add to playlist for all of us!

‘To Be Without You’ – Kihyun (Monsta X)

A fun and upbeat song, Kihyun from Monsta X lent his vocals to the new Korean drama Dodosol Solarasol to create an OST. ‘To Be With You’ is another addition to the long list of OST songs that Kihyun has made since the start of his career. The light song emphasizes Kihyun’s versatile vocals that always brings joy to the heart of his fans. It’s a song that’ll transfer you into a setting where you’re the main character of your show. We’re in love!

‘Daystar’ – Super Junior Kyuhyun

‘Daystar’ is the second single in Kyuhyun’s seasonal Project: 季 and focuses on autumn. The song is the opposite of soul-full and upbeat summer single ‘Dreaming’. Instead, ‘Daystar’ is heavy and full of melancholy. Kyuhyun’s vocal skills are some of the best in the K-pop scene. That being said, listen to ‘Daystar’ right now and feel autumnal with us!

‘This Day’ – Usher ft Kiana Lede

We all know and love Usher, and his new song ‘This Day’ featuring Kiana Lede is everything! This song was created for Netflix original picture ‘Jingle Jingle’ and we can’t get enough! These two amazing voices is just something we didn’t know we needed until it happened. This musical sounding song has us up on our feet dancing to the beat. We at Fresh Music Friday just can help but want more!

‘First Time’ – Daya

Daya hits us with an awesome new song ‘First Time’ this week week and it’s the Daya sound we all know and love – that perfect radio tune that we know is going to be a hit. We have missed Daya and this song is exactly what we needed from her!

‘Elephant’ – CupcakKe

One badass bitch, CupcakKe is back with another banger. ‘Elephant’ solidified a flow something serious and that CupcakKe is the queen of punch lines. Over a beat to vibe with, we are left in awe matched with laughter because it’s just so fire. While we think she doesn’t get half the credit she deserves – when she hits the scene? It’s over for the rest. This one lands right on our weekend playlist.

‘I Miss U’ – Jax Jones ft Au/Ra

Jax Jones and Au/Ra have joined forces this week to treat us to a club hit that will have your head spinning. ‘I Miss U’ is a track that has us spinning around our kitchens in time to the infectious rhythm that runs through the whole song. It’s gotta be one of our fav tracks this week and we can’t wait to hear it over the radio waves for the foreseeable future!

Alexander 23 has us deep in our feels this Fresh Music Friday. His latest track ‘Brainstorm’ is an internally reflective ballad that builds into an epic love song about hope and self doubt.

‘No Ordinary’ – Labrinth

Labrinth has been enlisted to provide the soundtrack to the Xbox ‘Power Your Dreams’ campaign and we couldn’t think of anyone more fitting. To celebrate, he’s just dropped a stunning track ‘No Ordinary’. It’s a song fitting for a cinematic soundtrack and we just can’t wait to see how the campaign unfolds.

kiiara has just dropped her album lil kiiwi and honestly, we’re obsessed! Featuring hit tracks like ‘So Sick’, ‘Numb’ and ‘Whippin’ we’re spoilt for musical choice. This is a record that’s been a long time coming but we’re sure it’s one that her fans will be sure to remember for decades! Still need convincing? If you love all things electric pop then this is definitely an album that you’ll be able to groove to all through the fall.

Back Home – Trey Songz

As usual, Trey Songz glorious, sultry vocals deliver a powerhouse album. From the first song to the last, we find ourselves completely entranced by every word he sings. However, we feel one of the most powerful songs on this album is ‘2020 Riots: How Many Times’ – an anthem to the Black Lives Matter movement and the protests and riots that made up a lot of 2020. Its emotional and raw and we felt it further shines a light on just how important equal rights and equality in all things are. We loved it and we think you will too.
