February 2017: Top 5 New Releases
Start writing a post

February is coming to an end, and it's still hard to believe that we are two months into 2017. A lot has taken place in the music industry this month including Lady GaGa performing at the Super Bowl half-time show and Adele's big wins at The Grammys. Some of my favorite artists have already released music this year, and hopefully there will be a lot more to come. Here are 5 of the top new releases of February 2017.

1. Katy Perry - "Chained To The Rhythm" (Ft. Skip Marley)

KATY CATS! Get excited because it looks like Katy Perry is back AND blonde. This song is a fun party anthem with a deep message. Katy talks about the times live in and how we are "so comfortable living in a bubble". Hopefully this means a new record is around the corner for Katy.

2. Lana Del Rey - "Love"

Oh. My. Gosh. I can't tell you how excited I was to hear that Lana had released a new song. I think I may have sent the link to everyone in my contacts list. It's been a while since LDR has released a song that is rhythmically relatable to her Born To Die and Paradise albums. Her last album, Honeymoon, consisted of slower-moving tunes that vastly differed from her previous music. I hope "Love" is a taste of new music we will be hearing from Lana in the future.

3. Linkin Park (feat. Kiiara) - "Heavy"

This was definitely a collaboration that I wasn't expecting, but I am so excited that it happened. Kiiara has spent a lot of time on my playlists over the last year with the release of her low kii savage extended play. This song brings out a new sound from Kiiara and news of a new album from Linkin Park expected on May 19th.

4. Noah Cyrus - "Make Me (Cry)" [feat. Labrinth] (Marshmello Remix)

The original version of "Make Me (Cry)" was released in November 2016, but this remix by Marshmello was released this month. I am a huge fan of Marshmello, and he definitely brings more to this song with his remix Is anyone else obsessing over the fact that Noah sounds just like a younger version of Miley?! It's crazy! Keep the remixes coming, Mello.

5. Bebe Rexha - "F.F.F." (feat. G-Eazy)

Like everyone else, I became obsessed with Bebe after hearing her on G-Eazy's track "Me, Myself, And I" in 2015. Her voice is so much different than the artists we hear on the radio today, and I have been playing her new music non-stop. Her and G-Eazy are back together in one of my favorite new tracks this month.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
