The first days of summer are officially upon us, and our favorite artists welcomed the new season with open arms. This Friday has been an epic day for new releases, and it’s given us new albums by Gracie Abrams and Kehlani, plus new songs by Coldplay, Maren Morris, and Julia Michaels.

Several major artists chose June 21 as the release date of their new albums, starting with Kehlani, who knocked us off our feet with Crash. It was also a great week for Gracie Abrams, who released her sophomore album The Secret of Us, and stirred quite a commotion with the A-list collaboration “Us.” feat. Taylor Swift.

It was a great week for amazing collaborations overall, and quite a few made it to our list. Maren Morris and Julia Michaels proved they’re a match made in heaven with “Cut!”, while Jamie xx and Robyn joined forces for “Life”.

It’s also been a great week for remixes of songs we already know and love. Ariana Grande did the most meta thing ever and invited Brandy and Monica to hop on a remix of “The Boy is Mine”, while Charli XCX recorded a new version of “Girl, So Confusing” alongside Lorde.

Check out the rest of our list to discover new music by Coldplay, Lola Young, Suki Waterhouse, and The Japanese House.
