The calendar has officially hit March which means the sun should be coming out … soon. So turn the winter tunes off and start creating your spring playlist with some of the hottest new feel-good music that has just dropped. All eight of these tracks have the chops to be on repeat on any of your upcoming spring break road trips.
World-renowned actress Florence Pugh has teamed up with her brother Toby Sebastian to create the stunning and smooth track, ‘Midnight.’ The way Florence’s low voice flows perfectly with Toby’s has created the perfect vibe. The duo released this song in 2021 and just this month released the music video filmed in their family’s restaurant in Oxford, England. We’re utterly obsessed with how family-oriented the creation of this song is, and of course, we’re obsessed with the music itself. We hope for more collaborations between the two in the future.
Is it really getting closer to summer if we don’t have an absolute banger of a dance track? Especially from Galantis and Steve Aoki, and the absolute angel that is Hayley Kiyoko is just the cherry on the cake. This dance-pop banger was written about a fast-moving romance. From there, Hayley and Steve Aoki reached out to Galantis to hop on the track, and we’re so glad they did. With the vibes that will get anyone jumping and dancing, this is a must-have for your spring playlist. Whether the gloom of winter still lingers where you are, this track will put you in the best of spirits, even if there’s a 99% chance of rain.

Creator of the viral song ‘Victoria’s Secret,’ Jax is back with another empowering and catchy tune, ‘Cinderella Snapped.’ This is the perfect song to listen to while getting ready, hanging out with friends, or anytime you need that perfect boost of motivation to conquer the world.
I wanted to write a song from Cinderella’s perspective, if she and all the princesses rewrote their stories and burned the fairytale system down. My intention was to throw a little dose of equality into the stories I grew up with. I always wondered how it would have shaped who I was if all the princesses I looked up to had more purpose than being saved by a prince.
