3 BOYS BY OMAR APOLLO
“Three boys would work if I wasn’t so tethered to you,” Omar croons on the hook. Sad, gay ballads are totally my jam. The song is about the state of delusion of still being in love with his ex. And allegedly it is about his relationship with Frank Ocean? I am living for the drama.

LUV U ALIEN BY LEAH DOU (FEAT. VICTOR MA)
I randomly tapped on the GSG Mixtape album because I thought the album art looked cool, but I ended up liking the music so much! LUV U ALIEN is groovy and catchy—the perfect song to vibe to when I’m in my car.

90 PROOF BY SMINO (FEAT. J COLE)
Earphones in with this song playing and I’m in another world. Incredibly groovy, it’s perfect for mornings, evenings, and at night–basically any time of the day. Also, J. Cole never misses.

HEY, MICKEY! BY BABY TATE
We all need a pick-me-up to beat the Monday blues. For me, at the moment, it’s Hey, Mickey! Adding a modern edge to Toni Basil’s 1982 hit Mickey, Baby Tate makes walking to the office feels like stomping down the runway.

SIAL BY MAHALINI RAHARJA
I relate to this song on a personal level. It’s about loving someone and giving your all to them—only for them to leave you in the end. It’s a very sad song, that’s why the song is called Sial (Unlucky).

WELCOME TO THE BLACK PARADE BY MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE
What is there not to love about MCR? It’s angsty emo-rock, but also a perfect Monday song, at least to me. The lyrics strike the chord, not that I delve into afterlife thoughts often, but it does remind me to carpe diem, as cliché as it sounds.
