With the rise of digital streaming services, it seems impossible to keep up with the daily onslaught of fresh-AF music. We know it's hard being you; that woke, on-trend, and pop culture-savvy millennial who everyone wants to chill with. It's that classic First World problem of having too much to do, but too little time. We get it, so we're jumping into streaming game today as a official Apple Music curator.

In our 'Trending' playlist above, we'll be distilling all that noise out there, and bringing you only the best beats worth your two seconds every Friday, so you can kick off the weekend on the right notes. Topping the list this week, rewind the clock to 1996 with "Spicy", an infectious reworked version of Spice Girls' "Wannabe" by Diplo and French producer Herve Pagez featuring Charlie XCX. Elsewhere, check out Katy Perry's latest Zedd-produced single "Never Really Over" as well as "Mother's Daughter", a track off pop's reformed enfant terrible Miley Cyrus' new EP six-track EP, She Is Coming. As you can probably tell, there isn't a fixed genre or mood to this playlist; there are some familiar Top 40s tracks, but we've also thrown in some lesser-known gems in there for good measure so you can discover a new aural tingle.

In the spirit of the overused but well-intentioned #supportlocal, we have also dedicated an entire playlist to Singapore's most established and brightest emerging artistes and bands. Here, you'll wade through a sonicscape of heartfelt pop (RRILEY, Narelle, and Tabitha Nauser), sizzling R&B and hip-hop (Fariz Jabba and Yung Raja), and indie jams (Dru Chen, Glen Wee, and Charlie Lim).
