Every week, Buro. selects the best new music of the week so you don’t have to deal with the white noise.
SG (with Ozuna, Megan Thee Stallion, Lisa of BLACKPINK) by DJ Snake
Forget the clubs, this collaborative single will have you grooving to the beat without the need for neon lights or drinks. The highly- anticipated drop featured a series of big names that showcased the individual artists against technicolour backdrops. The track combines the unique abilities of DJ Snake; Ozuna’s striking voice; Megan’s fire rap; and Lisa’s iconic charisma and dance sequences. A MV that was worth the wait? You bet.
Moth To A Flame (with The Weeknd) by Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd
The third single from Swedish House Mafia’s third studio album, Paradise Again, has The Weeknd lending his vocals to create what we regard to be a vocal masterpiece. The MV begins on a haunting note, where the camera pans onto our singer’s faces that are dimly lit with a teal blue light, before cutting to sequences of entwined bodies as Abel slowly draws you in a trance with his unique voice. TLDR; it’s the collaboration we didn’t know we needed.
Pa Mis Muchachas (ft. Nathy Peluso) by Christina Aguilera, Becky G, Nicki Nicole
You don’t need to understand Spanish to recognize the next sultry female anthem. The music video itself just serves girl boss mafia vibes and we’re definitely here for it. For those unaware, it’s Aguilera’s first single from her upcoming Spanish-language album — a work 21 years in the making since her last Spanish album.
strawberry moon by IU
IU brings us on a magical date on the Strawberry Moon in her latest MV. In a video shared with fans, she explained the little intricacies behind the MV, down to the significance of the car’s license plate featured in the clips. Though it wasn’t clear in the music video, the license plate reads ‘14 JUN 2022’ which is the date of the next Strawberry Moon — and also IU’s birthday in the lunar calendar.
Just a Notion by ABBA
Initially recorded in September 1978, ABBA is releasing songs that didn’t make the cut to their Voulez-Vous album — though for the life of us, we can’t figure out why they weren’t released in the first place. Perhaps it’s a good thing that these tracks are released in 2021, however – it’s refreshingly uplifting, and just what the world needs in the midst of a dreary pandemic.
