New Music Friday!

Welcome once again to another edition of New Music Friday here on Le Café Music Blog. It’s been a bit of a hectic week, so I haven’t posted since last Friday. I will definitely have more for you guys this week!

Now let’s get to the music!

Olivia Rodigo – Deja Vu

Olivia burst onto the scene with her debut track Drivers License, so it’s going to be hard to top that on her second shot.

This song seems to be a follow up about the blonde girl that always made her pout. This time, she wasn’t driving through the suburbs. She started this song with a car ride to Malibu.

Let’s see what Twitter had to say about this track.

That certainly escalated quickly.
You learn something new every day

Let’s get to the video.

So when you gonna tell her
That we did that too
She thinks it’s special
But it’s all reused

Demi Lovato – Dancing With The Devil

Demi Lovato makes her emotional return after her 2018 near-death experience after an overdose. Dancing With The Devil...The Art Of Starting Over is Demi’s first album since 2017.

Lovato has been through hell and back. I won’t get into those details out of respect for her. She lays a lot of it out in this recent documentary, so have a watch if you’re interested. Just a warning…it’s a lot to take in.

Here is the title track from her new album, Dancing With The Devil.

It’s just a little white line, I’ll be fine
But soon, that little white line is a little glass pipe
Tinfoil remedy almost got the best of me
I keep praying I don’t reach the end of my lifetime

BTS – (방탄소년단) Film out 

Their first single after smashing the charts with their hit Dynamite, the South Korean boy band is back. This time, they are not singing in English…or Korean. Film Out is sung in Japanese.

The upcoming BTS album, which includes Film Out, expected to be released on June 16…is entirely in Japanese.

I’d say that’s…not bad.

Here is the K-Pop Japanese track, Film Out

(Romanized)
Tantan to furitsumotta kioku no naka de
Kimi dake wo hiroi atsumete tsunagete
Heya juu ni utsushite nagame nagara
Komiageru itami de kimi wo tashikamete iru

Iggy Azalea, Tyga – Sip It

Yup, Iggy is back and she’s teaming up with Tyga on her newest release. I’m not gonna lie to you guys. This song is f*cking horrible. It’s like a Walmart brand of WAP. Iggy, you went away for a while…what made you think this was the song to come back with? Straight up trash.

Blonde, blonde, blonde, blonde, blonde, Richard on my arm
Rappers in my phone, in my DM, won’t leave me alone
Blonde, blonde, blonde, blonde, hair thirty inches long
Boys on my d*ck, sip this p*ssy like it’s Styrofoam, ayy

Jane Handcock – Forgive Them

Sorry, Jane. I can’t forgive Iggy for that sack of sh*t she just dropped. But this song right here…is fire. This is Jane’s second release with Estabrook Road Records and this woman deserves more recognition in the R&B world.

Conclusion

Iggy Azalea still sucks.

There is much better music out there, so have a listen to Spotify’s weekly New Music Friday playlist right here:

Billboard global 200 Top 10 (week of January 30, 2021)

Every Tuesday, Billboard releases all of their charts. As I am a “citizen of the world,” I will bring you the Billboard Global 200 Top 10 every week. The Global 200 ranks the top songs based on sales and streaming data from 200 territories worldwide. Let’s get to it!

1. Olivia Rodrigo – Drivers License

The former Disney Channel’s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star debuted her first single last week at number 1. That’s where she’ll stay this week. Since Drivers License was released, it has broken the record for most daily streams on Spotify…twice. The song has reached the top of charts in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Netherlands, Norway, the UK, and here in the US.

‘Cause you said forever, now I drive alone past your street

2. Ariana Grande – 34+35

Nobody can explain this track the way Lewis Capaldi does, so I’ll leave you with this:

A song about the joys of learnin’

Jumping 9 spots from 11 to 2, here’s 34+35:


3. The Weeknd – Blinding Lights

20 weeks on the chart and this song is still up near the top. From the Canadian star’s fourth studio album After Hours, Blinding Lights moves down just one spot to number 3.

Sin City’s cold and empty

4. Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez – Dákiti

Staying put at number 4 this week, Dákiti reaches its 12th week on the chart. If you don’t speak Spanish, this song is basically about getting drunk, smoking weed, his lady’s butt, and doin’ it.

I can’t believe I fit a Ladies Man reference in here. I’m proud of myself. Anyway, bending the rules of reggaetón, here is Dákiti by the Puerto Rican duo.

Dando vuelta por El Condado contigo siempre arrebatao

5. 24kGoldn ft. Iann Dior – Mood

Staying put at number 5, the 20-year-old TikTok sensation 24kGoldn reaches his 20th week on the chart with Mood. After breaking out on TikTok, he had some sound advice for his fellow TikTokers in an interview with the New York Post “Don’t make anything you wouldn’t want to watch yourself.”

Why you always in a mood?

6. BTS – Dynamite (방탄소년단)

The K-Pop boy band slides 3 slots to number 6 this week. This is also their 20th week on the chart after their debut at number 1. Dynamite has over 800 million views on YouTube and over 600 million streams on Spotify.

Those numbers don’t surprise me one bit. After living in South Korea for almost three years, I know how loyal Korean pop fans can be.

화이팅!!

Shining through the city with a little funk and soul

7. Dua Lipa ft. DaBaby – Levitating

The British vocalist sits at number 7 once again this week with the hit from her second studio album, Future Nostalgia. Warner Music got a huge win by signing Dua Lipa in 2015.

You want me, I want you, baby, My sugarboo, I’m levitating

8. SZA – Good Days

SZA will stay at number 8 this week, her 8th week on the chart with Good Days. The American neo soul vocalist announced yesterday that she wants Frank Ocean on the remix for this track.

I think that’s something we can all get behind.

Tell me I’m not my fears, my limitations
I disappear, if you let me

9. The Weeknd – Save Your Tears

Abel reaches the top-10 again this week after jumping from 13 to 9. This is the fourth single from After Hours, and his second on the chart this week. The Weeknd continues his on-going theme throughout his music videos from After Hours by revealing his botox-injected face of nightmares.

Yikes
But then you saw me, caught you by surprise
A single teardrop falling from your eye
I don’t know why I run away
I’ll make you cry when I run away

10. Justin Bieber – Anyone

The single released by Def Jam Recordings stays in the top-10 for a third week, dropping from number 6. Bieber’s character seems to be evolving from “idiot kid” to an adult with regrets. He recently reflected on the 7-year anniversary of his DUI arrest in Miami in an Instagram post.

You love to see that he’s learned from his mistakes and is trying to move on with his life. I know the feeling…minus the being famous thing.

Looking back on my life, you’re the only good I’ve ever done
Yeah, you, if it’s not you, it’s not anyone 

I hope you enjoyed this breakdown of the Billboard Global 200 Top 10.
