September has given us more amazing songs than we can count, and we’re ending it on a high note. From The Rolling Stones and Lady Gaga to Bad Bunny and Jorja Smith, this week saw some of our favorite artists surprise us with brand-new music, making their way to our list of the best songs of the week.
Ed Sheeran’s new album Autumn Variations was certainly the week’s most anticipated new release, and he did a great job hyping it up. He’s given us 14 new songs—each one inspired by one of his friends—and “American Town” made it to our list this time around.
This week also marked the release of Jorja Smith’s highly-anticipated new album Falling or Flying, which had several amazing songs fighting for our attention, including “Broken is the Man”. Becky G’s new LP Esquinas also swept us off our feet and gave us several amazing tunes, including “2ndo Chance” ft. Ivan Cornejo.
Our list includes several more fantastic collaborations, including The Rolling Stones’ “Sweet Sounds Of Heaven” ft. Lady Gaga & Stevie Wonder, Jung Kook’s “3D” ft. Jack Harlow, and Empress Of’s “Kiss Me” ft. Rina Sawayama. *NSYNC’s comeback single “Better Place” and Bad Bunny’s viral hit “Un Preview” also made the cut, so stick around to hear them out.
