New Music Friday: Your Lifeline for Keeping up with Modern Music

In one of the recent New Music Fridays, on September 28th, a playlist released by Spotify every Friday at 12am, you will see new songs from Lil Wayne, Lady Gaga, Logic, Lauv, and many more! There are popular songs from Lil Wayne’s new album, The Carter V, scattered throughout the New Music mix, along with new remixes and singles from a plethora of artists and DJs.

New Music Friday is a great way to keep up with the latest releases and album drops, without making much of an effort to do so! Just put on the playlist every Friday, and see what songs get you going! I constantly discover songs I probably never would have, and I get a taste of so many genres and types of artists, big and small. New Music Friday introduced me to so many of my favorite albums and artists and it’s definitely a great way to start your Friday!

Each Friday’s playlist has a tasteful lists of songs, some of my favorites being “Mona Lisa”, from Lil Wayne’s Carter V a nd “Tints” by Anderson Paak (ft. Kendrick Lamar). While I love the hip-hop and R&B tunes, New Music Friday has pushed me more into the alternative, soft pop realm with songs from Lany, Halsey, Vance Joy, Twenty One Pilots, and more. New Music Friday definitely has something for every and is just a great way to hangout with your friends while listening to the hottest new music that week. Some New Music Fridays are more prominent than others, especially those accompanying album drops from big artists, but each week has definitely contributed something to my list of favorites. Now I’m just waiting for Friday!
