“Team” by Iggy Azalea
Perfect for: Feeling palaban.
“Baby I got me, only friend I need,” Iggy chants in the angas-filled lead single off her upcoming album Digital Distortion. Be sure to watch the dance video which, as a bonus, gives you many ways to wear denim and white sneakers.
“Like I Would” by ZAYN
Perfect as: A kiss-off to an ex.
Following “Pillowtalk,” the next single off ZAYN’s debut solo album Mind of Mine is an electro-R&B track that’s catchy as hell. In it, he arrogantly addresses an ex who has moved on: “If we can never go back, thought you'd like to know that / He won't touch you like I do, he won't love you like I would.” WE BELIEVE YOU, ZAYN.
“Work from Home” by Fifth Harmony feat. Ty Dolla $ign
Perfect for: Sending your dude a nudie while he’s at work.
The girl group behind last year’s monster jam “Worth it” are back with a sexy plea for bae to quit clocking in so many hours and just “work from home” (*wink wink*). Don’t miss the video, which is crawling with hot construction workers in tank tops and hard hats.
“No Broken Hearts” by Bebe Rexha feat. Nicki Minaj
Perfect for: Getting your heartbroken friend to quit moping.
“No broken hearts in the club, no tears in the club, ‘cause we gon’ get it poppin’ tonight!” Blast this Bebe Rexha beat when you or anyone else in your squad is feeling less than stellar, take its advice with a GNO, and feel totes better.
“NO” by Meghan Trainor
Perfect for: All those catcallers who harass you each day.
Meghan puts pushy men in their place in this female empowerment anthem which has her spitting out lines like, “Thank you in advance, I don't wanna dance, I don't need your hands all over me.” Sing it, sis.
“Sit Still, Look Pretty” by Daya
Perfect for: Believing in your worth beyond your looks.
The rising 17-year-old singer-songwriter has released a feel-good number that has #feminist written all over it. She tells Billboard that the song “reminds young women that we can and should fight for our own dreams and ambitions, even if it doesn't always look ‘pretty.’”
“Misery” by Gwen Stefani
Perfect for: That sweetie you’re absolutely infatuated with.
Like previous single “Make Me Like You,” this lovesick number off Gwen’s new album This Is What the Truth Feels Like is inspired by current boyf Blake Shelton, as the singer herself revealed to Entertainment Weekly. Damn, our girl’s got it bad.
“Close” by Nick Jonas feat. Tove Lo
Perfect for: Your intimacy issues.
Watch the JoBro and the Swedish singer get alternately pulled together and pulled apart in the video for this irresistibly sultry track, which Nick explains “is about how I literally can't open up and be vulnerable with someone.”
“Dangerous Woman” by Ariana Grande
Perfect for: The man who brings out the bad girl in you. (Rawr.)
The lead single off Ari’s upcoming album of the same name, “Dangerous Woman” is a slinky, sexy tune with a mean guitar solo that’s a welcome departure from her previous sound. Listen to her a cappella version here and see some serious slayage.
“Wild Horses” by Birdy
Perfect for: Psyching yourself to stay strong after a breakup.
“I will survive and be the one who's stronger, I will not beg you to stay,” the Brit singer-songwriter vows in her new single—making it the perfect addition to your post-breakup #MoveOnNaTeh playlist.
