Labrinth & Zendaya — ‘I’m Tired’ (From HBO Original Series Euphoria)

Released on: March 1

It’s always a good time to release new musFans of the hit HBO series Euphoria are sure in for a treat. Composer Labrinth and leading star Zendaya have released the full version of ‘I’m Tired’, a gospel-inspired ballad that follows the epic Season Two finale of the show. The transformative track was first featured in episode 4 during an emotional fantasy scene in which Rue (Zendaya) envisions herself in church. In this version, Zendaya’s spectral vocals are featured solo for the song’s entire last minute, accompanied by some haunting tunes of bare-bones piano.

Camila Cabello (feat. Ed Sheeran) — ‘Bam Bam’

Released on: March 4

Camila’s latest offering, featuring everyone’s favourite ginger Ed Sheeran, isn’t your typical break-up song, but it’s a fresh hit nonetheless. It comes as no surprise that many speculate ‘Bam Bam’ is all about her heavily-publicised split from Shawn Mendes. Calling it quits after 2.5 years of dating, Shawn released ‘It’ll Be Okay’ to soothe his heartbreak while Camila’s tear-jerking yet groovy dance beat suggests optimism from the singer.

HAIM — ‘Lost Track’

Released on: March 1

The pop-rock band’s latest single marks the trio’s powerful return with breezy West Coast melodies and a strident sense of purpose for the occasion. Fans of the group were caught by surprise, with only a lyric posted on Instagram that hinted at ‘Lost Track’. Accompanied with a throwback music video, it was certainly interesting watching the Haim sisters become banquet hall socialites locked in monotonous routines, with one character freely unhinged.

Charli XCX — ‘Baby’

With plenty of ‘sing-talk’ forged into a memorable melody, this rapid-fire tune is sure to put the girls as strong contenders for their first-ever Korean music show win!

Big Time Rush  — ‘Not Giving You Up’

Released on: February 26

For their highly-anticipated comeback, the boys transported us back to the 2010s boy band era, where almost every teenage girl owned either a BTR or One Direction poster. This song encompasses that perfect, silly, and complete BTR feel. Not only that, the promotion for ‘Not Giving You Up’ was sheer genius. On Valentine’s Day, the band had tweeted out a “Big Time Relationship Services” hotline number for fans to call and receive love advice from the four heartthrobs. It’s almost like they knew their fan base primarily consisted of single, lovestruck gals.

Nina Nesbitt — ‘When You Lose Someone’
