Monday is here again! At least the saving grace of Mondays is that Monday means music! This week is a freebie week, so grab your favorite tune(s) and come dance with us, won’t you? 

Let’s start with an English musician who tells us that as much as love can tear people apart, there is sometimes a rarer, more optimistic love, awaiting around the corner. This song details a special type of relationship, one that’s filled with hope and relief. The lyrics “Have you ever loved someone so much it tears you apart?”, explain how all-consuming yet magical love can be, dependent on the person.

For people who have only experienced rocky relationships so far, this song provides an exuberant makeover to the common heartbreak song, encouraging all of us to fight harder for “true love.”

Get ready to dance, here’s BANNΞRS with “Have You Ever Loved Someone”:

Next up is an unexpected collaboration between three music stars from different genres. One of the stars described on social media that the three of them working together was “beautifully random”. She said:

“Different people from different places coming together to make music. Music makes my heart happy ✨.”

Prepare to be impressed, here’s the inimitable P!nk, Marshmello and Sting with “Dreaming”:

Next up, this English singer and songwriter rose to prominence in 2013 after signing with Atlantic Records and was considered one of the “Most Influential People Under 30” by Forbes magazine in 2019. About this song she said:

“This song is about honesty and forgiveness. All friendships and relationships have their ups and downs, life isn’t perfect. Hopefully people can hear their own stories in the lyrics and it brings them hope.”

Give a listen to Jess Glynne with “Friend Of Mine”:

Last, but certainly not least, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. This new fiery anthem from this new incarnation of this fun group strikes a chord with anyone who has found themselves in a lingering relationship that should probably come to an end.

You make me wanna smoke / You make me wanna quit / You make me wanna drink ’til I’m sick of it / Make me wanna hide away my heart / You make me wanna let you take it way too far / ‘Cause loving something bad for me is all that I know / I’m probably just pushing my luck / There you go lighting me up / You make me wanna smoke / Make me wanna, make me wanna smoke

The artists said:

“[‘This song]’ has immediately become our favorite song to play live. It’s slinky and fun and such an empowering way to embrace the back-and-forth nature of a relationship that may not be the best for you. We’re so excited to share this one!”

Without further ado, here’s Runaway June with “Make Me Wanna Smoke”:

That’s a wrap for this week – have a great Monday! See you on the dance floor!
