SLAY (verb): be extremely impressive, stylish, or successful, and artists all over the music industry are SLAYING IT. *snaps* You know we here at The Honey POP give you nothing but bops and bangers, and these seven artists in music are bringing the heat to start your August off the right way – SLAYING AND DOMINATING!
We are jumping out of our seats with anticipation to bring you these fierce tracks, so enough small talk, let’s dive into the more important things!
‘Badder Than The Bad Boys’ – Peyton Shay
We are starting this article off strong with a fierce, pop-punk-inspired anthem about finding your true self and living life for yourself and not how everyone else wants you to be. IT.IS.EVERYTHING, and we are beyond entranced by Peyton and everything this song offers! It’s empowering and angsty, and that’s just the type of song we LIVE for! Peyton Shay world domination? Yes, please! Listen to the single here.
‘Stranger’ – Skyler Cocco
If you were to look up the word “Ethereal” in the dictionary, there would be a photo of Skyler in this visualizer! Not only is her voice captivating, but the aesthetic of the entire video has us fully transfixed and absorbed in every aspect of it. It makes us feel like we are watching a movie. With post-breakup lyrics, she tells the story of when the realization hits that to move on from someone, you often have to distance yourself and become “strangers,” and we can’t seem to get enough! Listen to the single here.
‘Idiot’ – Taylor Grey
HEAR US OUT! If you combine Taylor Swift and Avril Lavigne in one epic singer-songwriter, the outcome is Taylor Grey and her new song ‘Idiot.’ WE LOVE IT SO MUCH WE ARE SCREAMING FROM THE TOP OF OUR LUNGS, OKAY!? A song about the trials and tribulations of a rocky, dysfunctional relationship, lyrically (and sonically), this song is a masterpiece. Taylor is going to blow up after the world gets a touch of this song, and we will be here cheering her on! Listen to the single here.
‘Somebody Else’ – Kat Leigh
SLAY, KAT, SLAY! A song about wondering what it’s like to fit in and know where you belong is all too relatable, and we felt every word down to our very core (the goosebumps are legit, people!). With an incredible pop-rock sound, Kat has not only grasped our attention, but they also hypnotized us with every note and sent us spiraling (in a good way). they ate it up, and we are here waiting impatiently for their inevitable success! Listen to the single here!
‘The Way You See Me’ – Sophia Alexa
Sophia’s voice is mesmerizing on this new track, so much so that we felt like we were having a transcendental experience as we listened to the track – you can feel every emotion she’s trying to portray through her lyrics and the way she sings. We almost couldn’t believe our ears at how phenomenal every aspect of this track was, and we couldn’t help but listen to it endlessly. Listen to the song here!
‘Fireflies’ – AJA
Take a second before we appreciate these visuals and how stunning AJA‘s vocals are from the first note she sings – seriously, close your eyes and fully submerge your senses. Okay, now let’s talk about how simple yet elegant the visuals are for ‘Fireflies.’ AJA looks remarkable, and the simplicity of everything in the video enhances the song rather than takes away from its meaning, and that is breathtaking! She said, “this is my time to shine!” and did just that so eloquently. Listen to the single here!
‘Baby Why’ – Sarah Cothran
Let’s take a step back in time on this next track! ‘Baby Why’ is about a toxic relationship and not knowing why you still stay in that relationship. The song is also Sarah’s debut single, and it’s pure perfection! From the nostalgic rhythms and music video to the powerful way she sings, Sarah has set herself up for superstardom, and we are now going to be lifelong stans! Listen to the single here.
