The radio seems to consistently ruin great songs by playing them nonstop. Well good news, there is plenty of music out there! Here are 10 soon-to-be hits that everyone should listen to!

1. Again by Noah Cyrus ft. XXXTENTACION.

Again by Noah Cyrus ft. XXXTENTACION

THIS IS SUCH A JAM! I am honestly SO surprised that it hasn't really hit the charts. The music video does have 51 million views though. Listen to this! ASAP! Both the beat and the vocals will leave you in awe.

2. Call Out My Name by The Weeknd.

This song is powerful! The Weeknd really is singing his heart out in this one. Call Out My Name is just so pleasing to the ears. Also, you HAVE to watch the music video! The visuals are incredible.

3. iT’s YoU by zayn.

"ITS YooOoOoUUuUuUU!!!!" UGH Zayn, doing it again! This song just takes your mindset and lifts it into the clouds. It can really transport you somewhere else.

4. Kings & Queens by Mat Kearney.

"Richer than Solomon with you by my side." I really like the message of this song! It has a lot of wisdom. Kings & Queens is pretty simple but good simple! And catchy.

5. Let It Be by Labrinth.

Let It Be by Labrinth

I love Labrinth! If you haven't heard Jealous by him, you should probably look that up too. This song pumps me up, it would be a good addition to a gym playlist!

6. Ocean Eyes by Billie Eilish.

I think I might've heard this song played on the radio a time or two. Ocean Eyes is such a great song to chill out to. It has such a smooth, calm feel. You've gotta listen to this song at least once!

7. Love Lies by Khalid & Normani.

Love Lies by Khalid & Normani

I love Khalid! I can just play "Khalid" on shuffle and like all of the songs that are played honestly. I think this song ~just~ started playing on the radio. Khalid and Normani come together to give you real bop, make sure you give it a listen!

8. Angels by Khalid.

Angels by Khalid

Another hit by Khalid! I wish this song was longer. It is short but so so good. Angels is so calming! It takes you somewhere else. I also just love being reminded of angels and that there is more to this world than what we can see. Ugh this song is so great.

9. Born Ready By Zayde Wolf.

This song is a NEED for your work out playlist! It's intense! It will motivate you no matter what mood you're in. Don't believe me? Give it a listen and see!

10. Deep Water by American Authors.

Deep Water by American Authors

This song came out just last month! It might really be taking over the radio soon. I didn't expect to love it but I do! It's truly an awesome song to rock out to. The lyrics have to be belted out! Its vibe reminds me of X Ambassadors.

I hoped you enjoyed listening to these songs! Now recommend them to your friends, so that when the songs go big you can say you were listening to them before everyone else was!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
