January Playlist 2020

I can’t believe I am saying this but welcome to my second year of monthly playlists! I am more than happy to be kicking off 2020 by sharing the new albums and singles that I have uncovered and the old gems that I might rediscover. I can’t tell what the next 11 months will be bring from the world of music but I am excited to find out.

Album of The Month

Rare – Selena Gomez

This month saw the comeback of the ferocious Selena Gomez with her most recent musical offering in 4 years. I have a lot of respect for Selena. No matter what she has gone through – serious health issues, high profile relationship split – in the eye of the public, she always seems to handles it with such grace.

Of course, we can’t always know how a person deals with these issues in private but with Rare, Selena is extremely open and has decided to make these vulnerabilities the main focus of the album. I think listeners will appreciate how emotionally driven it is and it’s probably why the album has already sky rocketed to the top.

Personally, I feel it is one of her best albums to date.


Singles Worth Listening To

Wherever You Are – Kodaline

Okay, January seems to be the self confessed month of emotionally charged songs but I am loving this new one from Kodaline. Behind the slow opening and up tempo chorus, is a lyric honing in what it feels to be missing a significant other in your life. If this is just a taster of what’s to come from Kodaline’s upcoming album, I am pretty stoked to hear the rest.

What A Man Gotta Do – Jonas Brothers

We all know 2019 was the year of Jonas Brothers, but it looks like they’ve also decided to kick start 2020 in true JB style by releasing more new music. ‘What A Man Gotta Do’ is a seriously fun and catchy tune. You’ll pick up the chorus in no time and soon after you’ll find yourself singing it over for days! It’s the perfect single to pull us through the rest of January.

This is January…

  1. Heck YES to so many of these songs. I agree I think Rare is one of Selena Gomez’s best albums – so emotionally vulnerable and beautiful. I’m also obsessed with the new Jonas Brothers song…definitely danced like crazy to it haha. Also Demi’s new single and Halsey’s new album are incredible. So much new and fantastic music came out in January!🙌🏻

    1. I am actually so happy for Selena, I grew up watching her (like a lot of us did) and it’s great to see her come out on top after all the hardship she has went through!

      ‘What A Man Gotta Do’ is such a get up and dance song 🙌 January was a great month for music, I agree 😊
