9. Realer Than Real by Ka$ino

6. Align 2.0 by Shilpa Ananth
The only Dance-House on this list ⭐ Align 2.0 is in a lane of its own. The formidable black-and-white music video meshed with a colorful alternative universe, makes for a most memorable end product. The song is epic, complex, and features an unlikely pairing of an Indian vocalist, Shilpa, with a Brooklyn-based producer, Jarred Barnes (ARKTKT). In true 2021 fashion, Shilpa is marching to the beat of her own drums and we’re here for it. And of course, the message is on par with all else. It speaks of a woman thinking she’s trapped in her circumstances only to find out the grass is not greener on the other side. Deep stuff, no joke. Add the song on Spotify HERE.
5. SET FREE (Remix) by Vinny Vincere
SET FREE (Remix) is radically awesome. The artist, Vinny Vincere, indirectly encourages you through his first-person recounts of his past life to his present self. Vinny turns out to be an astute songwriter as he beautifully formatted SET FREE to be instantaneously liked and accepted by the listener. You will warm up to the song as soon as the first hook hits. Fun fact? Despite his gorgeous voice, Vinny says he’s never been formally trained but that he enjoys writing melodic hooks with other artists’ voices in mind. Add the song on Spotify HERE.
4. Brave by Lovana
