Overall a weaker bunch of songs. I don’t actually see too many of these lasting on my playlist 6 months from now.
ROSES by OUTKAST: A resurgence of a song that kind-of comes in and drops off my list every so often. The high-energy, nearly manic song is juxtaposed by quite sober lyrics.
BETTER NOW by POST MALONE: More of a chilled out song. The lyrics don’t actually seem very chilled, but the beat just feels very slow and deliberate.
RISE by JONAS BLUE, JACK & JACK: This is just an upbeat song about being young and rebellious and happy. I like how it seems to build to a chorus and throughout the song.
GIRLS LIKE YOU by MAROON 5: Maroon 5 make another Maroon 5 song. A catchy beat and lyrics that don’t really make much sense together. I don’t think this will be on my list for long.
YOUNGBLOOD by 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER: A very inconsistent song. I’m not quite sure what it is actually about but the constant shifting of genres and the dead-man walking part make it catchy for me.
