2022 has already brought us some amazing collaborations. Ed Sheeran and Bring Me The Horizon? James Arthur and Josh Franceschi? Who knows what’s coming next!!! Oh wait…we do 🙂 It seems that the mainstream collabs have moved away from the alternative music scene and have landed on throwback artists! That’s right, we have some exciting new tracks to share with you, that are collaborations from some throwback names you might recognize bringing us fresh new music to jam out to.
New Kids On The Block Are Proving Why They’re Still Amazing
No, this is not a Rick Roll, NKOTB did, in fact, release a new song featuring Rick Astley, Salt-N-Pepa, and En Vogue. The music video and song itself feel like an homage to the 80s, complete with the hair, fashion, and sound. ‘Bring Back The Time’ feels like a call to nostalgia, reminiscing over those good times. And okay, yes, maybe some of us didn’t exist during “The Time” they’re singing about, but we still appreciate a healthy dose of nostalgia, okay?
This ‘Frozen’ Remix Is Melting Our Hearts
We’ve been obsessed with this one. There’s just something about the way Madonna and Fireboy DML’s vocals come together, aided by Sickick’s amazing production, that just gets us. The ‘Frozen’ remix kind of makes us feel like we’re in our own TikTok edit, honestly, so if you hear us repeating it over and over, mind your own business, we’re acting it out in our heads. This collab is so so good, and it will definitely get stuck in your head the way it’s stuck in ours.
Madonna took to Instagram to announce the song, AND let us know that we should be expecting a music video sometime soon! In the meantime, make sure you’re streaming the song here!
We Would In Fact Run Lights For This Song (Just Kidding) *EPILEPSY WARNING FOR THE MUSIC VIDEO*
Okay, listen, did we expect Sting to collab with Swedish House Mafia? Not at all. But in the year of unexpected collabs, we have to say we are loving this one. The track opens with Swedish House Mafia’s trap beats, and as the beat builds, Sting comes in, and boy, will it blow you away when those vocals hit. It’s such a unique blend of vocals and music, and it’s amazing. So we are asking, no demanding, for more collabs like ‘Redlight’ IMMEDIATELY!
You can stream the song here.
