Welcome to The Fodder Blog’s new weekly segment ‘Weekly Top 10’, where our lovely team of writers share their top song picks for that week. If you’re in need of brand-new, spirited additions to your tumbleweed-ridden playlists, you’re in the right place! 

For the week ending February 6, we have Rhea Chatterji sharing her personal picks and why you should give these a go.

Sofia Carson – ‘Loud’

Released on: January 14

‘Loud’ by Sofia Carson is a crescendo of building empowerment, a bellow to rediscover our voice, strength and worth. The song is an anthem “dedicated to all the women of the world and all the loud voices of change,” the singer explained to iHeart Radio, “in hopes that in amplifying our own voices and each other’s voices together, that we are louder than ever and truly are the winds of change.” Complemented by an expressive choreography in the music video, the lyrics interrogate repressive stereotypes, and in doing so, cathartically frees oneself from such entrapment.

Charlie Puth – ‘Light Switch

Released on: January 20

Charlie Puth’s ‘Light Switch’ is the first release off his upcoming album Charlie. The song is one of the first among an extensive lineup to feature on the artist’s Tik Tok account, as he provided fans with an inside look at the creative process that went into the production of the song. Accompanied by a quirky music video, the catchy and light-hearted track can make a great addition to any workout playlist.

Anitta – ‘Boys Don’t Cry

Released on: January 28

Brazilian artist Anitta makes her American debut with a new single titled ‘Boys Don’t Cry,’ the latest rendition in her quest to move past the toxic relationship trope. With the theme of a scary movie, the catchy number is a humorous play on the horrors of reviving a dead flame.

BLESSED – ‘No Changes

Released on: January 27

BLESSED’s recent song ‘No Changes’ addresses the stark inaction towards the goal of equality. In an Instagram promotion of the song’s release, the artist wrote that ‘No Changes’ is “an anthemic commentary on what seems like an endless battle to be seen, heard and treated equally. A battle that all of us universally share in both communal and unique ways.” 

HRVY – ‘Too Young For This

Released on: January 30

Fresh off his new EP, ‘Too Young For This’ is a latest reminder from HRVY to appreciate the frivolities of youth. A plea to decelerate the transition to adulthood and the urge to age prematurely encapsulates the message behind the lyrics. 

George Ezra – ‘Anyone For You

Released on: January 28

George Ezra’s ‘Anyone For You’ is an endearing song dedicated to those struck by love, a chipper take on the urge to be desired. “I can love you, I could be anything you want of me,” the artist croons “and in the darkness of the night, baby, let me be your light.” I expect the song to make a jovial enhancement to any Valentine’s playlist.

Amber Mark – ‘Dark Side

Released on: January 28

‘Darkside’ by Amber Mark is a groovy single about finding solace in another person. Those who ease the angst of our day and shoulder our burdens. The song is listed as 13th on Mark’s latest album Three Dimensions Deep.

Cody Simpson – ‘Nice To Meet You

Released on: January 28

Cody Simpson’s ‘Nice to Meet You’ is a lament over a broken relationship, and the need to remain strong. The emotions, the regret, and the memories of such will come flooding back with lyrics so soulfully poetic and relatable.

Lauv – ’26

Released on: January 28

‘26’ by Lauv is an introspective song about the quality of being caught in limbo between youth and adulthood, complete with the suffocation of a broken reality and the burdens of responsibility. As we transition from our teens to our twenties, we are faced with a world unlike the suggestions of our rose-tinted glasses. The hurt and disillusion which stems from this is what Lauv explores.

Michael Bublé – ‘I’ll Never Not Love You

Released on: January 28

Michael Bublé has introduced the first track to feature on his upcoming album Higher. The single ‘I’ll Never Not Love You’ is a sentimental ballad on the healing properties of love and the promise to recompense old wounds. The full album will be released on March 25th.
