It’s a good week to be a Goo Goo Dolls fan! On Monday, the band announced that they’re releasing an extended play record, EP 21, this Friday. The pandemic project, produced by frontman John Rzeznik, will feature stripped down versions of four “fan-favorite” songs.
Last Friday, Doja Cat officially kicked off her new era with the release of “Kiss Me More (ft. SZA),” the first single off of her upcoming album, Planet Her, due out this summer. The track was written by Doja Cat, SZA, Yeti Beats, Rogét Chahayed, tizhimself and Carter Lang and produced by Yeti Beats. The music video (shared above) was directed by Warren Fu, who has previously worked with The Weeknd and Kehlani.
The song is an absolute bop; I appreciate that Doja Cat keeps us dancing–even if it’s just at home!

Aaaaaand we’re back! I think it’s only appropriate to kick off Wait…WHAT?’s #MusicMonday return by highlighting “Leave The Door Open”–a song that I haven’t taken off of repeat since the newly formed duo of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak combined their musical super powers as Silk Sonic. They just dropped the live version of the track this past Friday, and I already just can’t get enough! This first single from Silk Sonic has me completely amped for their full album–to the point that I keep hoping there’s a surprise drop in the very near future! Fingers crossed!

Following the heartbreaking news of Naya Rivera’s tragic passing, I found myself–like many other Glee fans–scrolling through YouTube to watch her many performances from the hit Fox show throughout the day.
Another year has come and gone and it’s time to celebrate the albums and songs that made up the soundtrack to my 2019! Admittedly, I didn’t spend a lot of time digging into new music this year, but I look forward to remedying this in 2020! Without further ado, here are my favorite albums of 2019:
