Every Monday, we bring you a playlist filled with tracks the Melodic staff has been listening to on repeat. Hear some of our latest obsessions below:

Sabrina Carpenter, “Please Please Please”Sabrina Carpenter is no stranger to success. Following the global success of her chart-topping hit “Espresso,” her memorable debut on Saturday Night Live, and a much-talked-about set at Coachella, Sabrina Carpenter is back with her latest single and music video, “Please Please Please.” She has delivered one pop anthem after another, earning multiple awards and certifications, and has performed to sold out crowds across the globe. Her latest release “Please Please Please” is the second single from her highly-anticipated upcoming album, Short n’ Sweet.

Sam Setton, “New Emotions”NYC native Sam Setton released his newest single “New Emotions” last Friday, exploring themes of self-reflection and the desire for change. This song is universally relatable as it describes the ongoing human search for love, meaning, and fulfillment in life.

– Brittany Muldoon


Halsey, “The End”“The End” is an acoustic guitar-driven track that explores Halsey’s struggles with childhood, vulnerability, and other personal issues. While acknowledging that these emotional reckonings aren’t the end of the world, Halsey expresses a desire to be loved and held as if they were. They sing, “If you knew it was the end of the world / Would you like to stay a while? / Would you leave when it gets hard?”

– Clare Gehlich


Axel Flóvent, “Asymmetry” – Perhaps the standout track on this album is “Asymmetry”, where Flóvent showcases his vocal talents over soft piano chords and an ethereal soundscape. In the lyrics, he yearns for perfection as he sings, “Would you see the imperfections / As something to fix / Or the love you wear / On your sleeve?” The song is deeply resonant with those who are striving to find their own place in the world, and is sure to connect emotionally with listeners worldwide.

– Ashley Robinson


ROSIE, “Rock Bottom” – A comforting anthem, “Rock Bottom” encourages others to look at their struggles in a new light. Throughout the song, ROSIE explains how “the hardest times” and “the quiet tears” made her into the person she is today. With warm vocals, she sings, “I take a bad day and call it a blessing / I take a heartbreak and call it a lesson.” In the end, she claims, “Nothing looks bad / When you’ve seen rock bottom.” We can sense that she is grateful to have overcome such hard times, to have come back from hitting rock bottom, because now she knows her strength.

– Christine Sloman
