“Don’t Start Now” is the lead single from Dua Lipa’s second studio album, her second release of 2019, following “Swan Song” in January. The disco-inspired track kick starts Dua’s new era, first alluded to when a blonde-haired Dua took to social media on October 23, posting a snippet of the track, with the caption “Miss me?”
In a statement, Dua Lipa said of the song:
I chose to put this song out first so I could close one chapter of my life and start another. Into a new era with a new sound! It’s about moving on and not allowing anyone to get in the way of that. It also felt like a natural first song choice as I made it with the brilliant same crew I made “New Rules” with.
“In My Room” is the second single released by Frank Ocean in 2019, following “DHL” released in October. The track was an unannounced surprise to his fans early Saturday morning.
On the track Ocean is braggadocious, dropping lines on jewelry and his excessive spending. The track’s title is taken from the outro, where Ocean describes a libertine encounter with a lover.
Frank raps over up-beat production credited to Michael Uzowuru, a long-time collaborator of Frank’s responsible for songs such as “Chanel” and “Nights.”
You can’t name a song “In My Room” without having it compared to the Beach Boys’ classic. In their version, the room is an escape. “Now it’s dark and I’m alone/But I won’t be afraid,” they sing. In Frank’s version, the song ends with no such respite.
The closing track off Everyday Life showcases a slow piano ballad that describes summarizes the band’s general album message: love, equality, pain, struggles, legacy, humanity, hope, everyday life.
Everyday Life is the upcoming eighth studio album by Coldplay, scheduled to be released on 22 November 2019. It is set to be a double album, with the first half titled Sunrise and the other Sunset.
Coldplay announced they would perform their upcoming double album in its entirety in two livestream concerts on November 21st and 22nd for YouTube’s Coldplay: Everyday Life – Live in Jordan. Because the band’s latest album features a plethora of Middle Eastern influences, they decided to perform in Jordan for the first time ever.
Teyana Taylor delivers lulls and lustful lyrics in her latest track titled "Morning," featuring fellow R&B songstress Kehlani, and the two working together might just steam up your screen.

It’s Halloween and it’s the perfect day for the Puerto Rican rapper Residente to release his new video for “Pecador.” Because it's definitely scary, but in the end, it carries an expressive narrative about a human confessing his sins and thoughts.
The musical clip, filmed in a church, features a child wearing a white dress with a red coat who lip-syncs the full song, expressing an opinion on the world’s corruption with lyrics like
“Escucho voces cada vez que apago la luz, cuando me cuestiono lo que no te cuestionaste tú Por eso a veces los versos que escribo hacen que a Jesús se les salga los clavos de la cruz” (“I hear voices every time I turn off the light, when I wonder what you didn't question yourself. That is why sometimes I write verses that cause Jesus' nails on the cross to come out).
The song was born after the artist, alongside Yale University, experimented to capture the brain frequencies of a Muslim man while praying and turn those waves into music.
