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.

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!

Heyo! The year is coming to a close, which means it’s time to reveal my favorite songs of 2018! You’ll notice that I stuck close to a handful of artists this year. I had certain albums (Voicenotes, Shawn Mendes, Liberation, and Good Thing, for example) on repeat for a good chunk of the year, so you’ll notice this year’s list basically reflects that. Some of the usual suspects can be found in the mix as well as some of my underrated, lesser-known faves.
