Lana Del Rey, Paramore, and More In Singles This Week

“Felices los 4” by Maluma

King of breaking the internet, Maluma, released “Felices los 4,” a feel-good, slow reggaeton about a couple that broke up and found someone else (or about a foursome—as it happens often with the genre, we’re never really sure). The song doesn’t take too many risks, but it’s an overall solid spring jam.

“Lust for Life” by Lana del Rey ft. The Weeknd

“Lust for Life” captures all of LDR’s greatness. It’s a song about her usual topics (a pulse for living, being young and free, what “keeps us alive”), made excellent by beautifully-set synths and The Weeknd’s falsetto. Also, it’s a good reminder to watch out for Del Rey’s eponymous album.

“Hard Times” by Paramore

Paramore has turned into an unrecognizable project, now foraying into overproduced indie pop. “Hard Times” is an unsurprising song that features Williams’ already tiring vocals and a sticky yet cheesy melody. The band is, undeniably, going through some “hard times.”
