Okay, we’ll admit we had to listen to this song a couple of times (read: 56) before fully getting into it, but now we can’t get enough. That’s right, the old Taylor Swift is dead and the new one isn’t fucking about. Dropping the first track from her upcoming sixth album, reputation, “Look What You Made Me Do” sees Taylor taking on all those who’ve said shit about her in the past in a Right Said Fred sampling track that waves goodbye to her bubblegum pop image. Buckle up, because the new Taylor is coming for you.
The songs we can’t stop listening to.

Kali Uchis – “Nuestro Planeta” feat. Reykon
Dropping her first track sung entirely in Spanish, triple threat vocalist/songwriter/producer Kali Uchis is back with the beautiful “Nuestro Planeto”. Talking on the track’s themes, Kali describes “Fantasizing about being with the person you thought someone was rather than the person they are now, without all the other factors and drama that got in the way of that fantasy.” Taken from her forthcoming debut album, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
Benjamin Clementine – “Jupiter”
On Benjamin Clementine‘s American artist’s visa it reads” “Alien of extraordinary ability.” It is this experience that formed the influence for his latest track “Jupiter”.
