1. "Meaning of Life" by Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson knows how to write a song that can immediately boost our mood. Her latest album is full of uplifting, powerful jams, but our fave is definitely "Meaning of Life."

 

2. "Whole Heart" by Rachel Platten

Rachel Platten's new album Waves shows how much she's grown as an artist since "Fight Song." She has a new sound, but those soulful lyrics we know and love are still there. We're big fan of the emotional love song "Whole Heart."

 

3. "Open Arms" by PRETTYMUCH

PRETTYMUCH is just one of the many boy bands we're totally obsessed with right now. Their latest single "Open Arms" proves they'll be around for a long time. It's snappy and smooth, filled with the most impeccable harmonies we've ever heard.

 

4. "Permanent Vacation" by The Academic

Indie rockers The Academic have given us the ultimate dance jam with their new single "Permanent Vacation" off their upcoming debut album. Fun and enticing, catch us listening to this bop on loop for the rest of the day.

 

5. "End Up Here" by Lucy Rose

Hauntingly soothing, Lucy Rose's "End Up Here" is one of the most moving songs we've heard in a long time. It takes a lot of guts to lay your heart out on the line like Lucy does in this tune.
