So we're pretty sure that you can't deny that Spotify is quickly becoming your most used app on your phone. And if you're looking to replenish your go-to playlist, we at Chalk.ph are here to share the tracks that we're currently vibin' to.
From fresh K-pop drops to tunes that would caress your lonely hearts, check out these note-worthy songs that could be your next ear candy!
Half As Good As You (feat. Alice Merton) by Tom Odell
"I've always loved Tom Odell's beautifully heartbreaking tracks. This one's about that point in your moving on process where you feel like you've let go of your greatest love, and there's no way you can find somebody else who can make you feel half as good as they did." - Madel Asuncion, Senior Content Editor
We Young by Chanyeol and Sehun
"I don't really listen to K-pop just because I have a different taste in music. This track from EXO's Chanyeol and Sehun, however, is quite the exception. It's such a feel-good song, and it easily got stuck in my head!" - Madel Asuncion, Senior Content Editor
Venice Bitch by Lana Del Rey
"Upon hearing the first few notes of Lana's beautifully haunting song, Venice Bitch automatically makes you tear up with an overwhelming feeling of fear, grief, pain, and longing of losing someone so precious. This song will put you in a trance that you wouldn't notice the 10-minute duration of the song." - Miggy Gimena, Content Producer
Idol by BTS
"It's a fun and catchy song that reminds us to love yourself and live for yourself." - Mikka Caronan, Art Director
Magic Shop by BTS
"This is the perfect song to play whenever you’re feeling down especially during the cold nights!) With its message “everything will be fine, you will overcome,” BTS will surely comfort you and you’ll never feel alone." - Mikka Caronan, Art Director
R.E.M. by Ariana Grande
"One of my fave feminist songs, Ari’s R.E.M is currently the song that makes me feel confident and brave at the same time. I recommend this to everyone as the song embodies loving your sexuality and being comfortable with your body. Especially for the girls out there who are shy, R.E.M. would remind you to end the traditional gender roles and pursue the man that you want." - Almira Blancada, Content Producer
I Don’t Wanna Love You Anymore by LANY
"Something we could all relate to, LANY’s new single is the song for everyone who finally reached the acceptance stage. It’s emotional yet dreamy which is practically the perfect description for any heartbreaking song like this. I recommend this to everyone because it will make you sad and happy at the same time!" - Almira Blancada, Content Producer
Sincerity Is Scary by the 1975
"This is the type of song that I will definitely listen to on a rainy day with its relaxing and soulful vibe and lyrics that will surely hit you right in the feels." - Kassy Flores, Editorial Intern
Thunderclouds (feat. Sia, Diplo, and Labrinth) by LSD
"This is my go-to song whenever I need an extra boost throughout the day because it's super groovy and you can't resist singing along." - Nicole Baculi, Art Intern
Slow Dancing In The Dark by Joji
"Misery loves company, and this is the song to listen to when you're feeling blue and embracing it." - Nicole Baculi, Art Intern
