Song of the Day

Demi Lovato – Sorry Not Sorry

Every year, there is one true summer song. If we’re lucky, one of those songs for the summer will be a girl anthem. I’ve been listening to this since it came out and of course it’s so much fun to sing along to something like this and think of all of your haters. I like to make this joke with Elisa sometimes that when I speak about something I’m directing it to my haters, but in reality, we don’t really have any at all, it’s just fun to think about. By the way, in case you were wondering, this song totally trumps Selena’s “Fetish.”

What We’re Listening to This Weekend:

With the exception of Honne’s album (because I listen to it every weekend) this is the ONLY other album we’re listening to! Summer is hear and Calvin Harris came out in 2017 with intentions only to release a feel-good summer album. Take that Taylor Swift! But actually, if there was anyway for him to redeem himself from that hot hot mess, this was it.

With the exception of a couple of songs that I just didn’t gravitate towards, the entire album is a bop that I actually enjoy. Do you all love it as much as I do? It basically eliminates my need to make a summer playlist for any event now that I have this… my only other question is… when does Vol. 2 come out?

What We’re Listening To This Weekend:

Listening to “Drew Barrymore” for the first time set a high bar for me. This isn’t the first time we’ve ever heard from SZA, but this album is taking off more than the last and I’m really excited about it. Today, we listened to the whole thing from start to finish during my workout. Initially, I didn’t think it was going to be the best “workout” music, but it was actually really calming for me and added a little bit of variation. We can’t complain about any track on “Ctrl.”

I may not love the direction that Paramore has been on for the last few years, but we’ll never stop adoring Hayley Williams.

What We’re Listening to this Weekend

It is a whopping 100 degrees out here in the South Bay today and I’m dying and sweating all over my couch. I’m about 3 minutes from running down the stairs and jumping into my pool. It’s one of those thoughts that should probably use a little bit more calculation, but right now – it seems like the only solution. Kanye’s “The College Dropout” is one of my favorite albums and I still remember blasting “All Falls Down” when I was 14 in the car with my parents. We’re listening to this album through and through today because old Kanye is the best kind of Kanye.
