“Burn Break Crash” by Aanysa feat. Snakehips

Perfect for: A day out with your girlfriends.

If you like Tinashe and Kehlani, you’ll love this 17-year-old newcomer who also has that ‘90s R&B sound down pat. Her new single, a collab with British beatmakers Snakehips, is a fun, sassy romp that totally belongs on a playlist with Ghost Town DJs’ “My Boo.”  

“I Would Like” by Zara Larsson

Perfect for: When you spot a hottie and just like that, it’s thirst o’clock. 

The rising Swedish pop star behind “Lush Life” and “Ain’t My Fault” is at it again with a raunchy new banger that has her declaring, “I would like to get to know you, baby / Like to get under your sexy body.” This girl doesn’t beat around the bush!

“I Feel It Coming” by The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk

Perfect for: Dinner parties when the plates are cleared and the drinks start flowing.

Following the title track, Abel Tesfaye unveils another collaboration with the French electro giants on his latest album Starboy. A sweet and slinky tune that wouldn’t be out of place on a vintage Michael Jackson album, “I Feel It Coming” is electric honey to the ears.

“That’s What I Like” by Bruno Mars 

Perfect for: Having a swag-filled singalong with friends. 

Bruno Mars offers some lucky lady “sex by the fire at night, silk sheets and diamonds all white” along with other promises of luxury and lovemaking in this track off 24K. “That’s What I Like” is a ‘90s R&B-inspired slow jam that combines the romantic harmonies of Boyz II Men with the panty-dropping bravado of R. Kelly. WIN-WIN.

“Slumber Party” by Britney Spears feat. Tinashe

Perfect for: Getting in a boning state of mind for the night ahead.

Brit-Brit has just released the remix of her single “Slumber Party” featuring Tinashe on guest vocals, and to give life to the song’s sexy subject matter, the music video is a steamy spectacle that shows the two pop stars girl-on-girl grinding at a party where guests sashay around in lingerie. You’ll never look at slumber parties the same way again.

“Distraction” by Kehlani

Perfect for: When you want the company without the commitment.

“I need you to give me your time; I need you to not wanna be mine,” Kehlani sings in this song about seeking out a casual fling. She just released the music video for “Distraction,” and it shows our girl going from room to different-colored room—a nod to Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name” vid.

“Satisfied” by Sia feat. Miguel and Queen Latifah

Perfect for: That romance you gave up on because reasons. (Sniff.)

Even if you’ve never seen the Broadway musical Hamilton, you can still enjoy its music through The Hamilton Mixtape, the star-studded compilation of covers of songs from the musical. One of these is the Sia-led “Satisfied,” which will bring an ache to your chest as it spills the heartbreaking back story between Alexander Hamilton and Angelica Schuyler.

“Water Under the Bridge” by Adele

Perfect for: That amazing love you can’t quite believe is yours. *heart eyes emoji*

Adele makes no secret of the fact that the latest single off 25 is about her partner and baby daddy Simon Kinecki. She tells Rolling Stone, “It was sort of about a relationship suddenly getting really, really serious, and then getting a bit frightened by it, and then realizing that ‘I think this must be right. This is the relationship that I want to be in for as long as I can possibly be in it.’” All together now: AWWW.

“Life Goes On” by Fergie

Perfect for: When you need to quit whining and start living.

Fergie has released a new single off her forthcoming album Double Dutchess, and it sees her visiting tropical house territory, her rapid-fire delivery swinging to a cheery melody and an easygoing beat. Here, she reminds you that “life goes on with or without you; it’s up to you what you’re gonna do”—precisely what you need to hear to get you off your ass today.

“Grammar Nazi” by Reese Lansangan

Perfect for: All you grammar nazis out there. (Yes, you.)

The Filipina singer-songwriter has come out with a Wes Anderson-inspired visual for “Grammar Nazi,” a song she claims is her “love letter to the English language.” Go on, share this video with your fellow grammar nazis! Once you’re done snorting over that dude who just said “stuffs,” of course.
