We’ve got a big weekend coming up. Not only will couples be celebrating Valentine’s Day all over the world but Sunday also happens to be the biggest sports day of the year. Between the Olympics and Super Bowl Sunday there’s not much left to do if you’re single and/or don’t like sports (shoutout if you’re like me and only attend Super Bowl parties for the food). But rest assured, Music Existence has you covered for all the best Galentine’s Day inspired tracks so that you can celebrate with your gal-pals this year. So grab your besties and a beverage of choice and dive into the best lonely-girl songs out there right now.
1. GAYLE – abcdefu
It’s one of the hottest songs on TikTok right now and for a good reason. GAYLE’s “abcdefu” is the perfect teenage angst song for your Galentine’s Day celebration, and while you’re at it, might as well make some TikTok’s with your friends.
2. Marina – Happy Loner
Fresh off the release of Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land (Deluxe Edition) “Happy Loner” is a vibe for any Galentine’s Day party. Marina brings her signature powerhouse vocals to the track & keeps things cosmic on the orchestral and ambient pop song.
3. SZA – I Hate U
Another song blowing up on TikTok right now but SZA hits deeper than just a social media app. “I Hate U” has blown up over the past two months and it’s no surprise why. You can hear the emotion in SZA’s voice as she tells the familiar tale of a relationship gone wrong.
4. Adele – I Drink Wine
It’s Adele, so sit back and enjoy (with wine).
5. Yola – Stand For Myself
Another powerhouse voice out of the U.K. is The Queen of Country Soul, Yola. She had one of the best albums last year with Stand For Myself and you can catch her in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis Presley biopic where she is set to play the legendary guitar pioneer, Sister Rosetta Tharpe. The film also features Austin Butler and Tom Hanks.
6. Kacey Musgraves – justified
Kacey Musgraves had one of the biggest breakup albums of the year in 2021 and accompanied the release with a short film, music videos, a glitter-filled arena tour and more! It’s Kacey’s world and we’re just living in it.
7. Holly Humberstone- London Is Lonely
Holly Humberstone is officially the Rising Star of the 2022 BRIT Awards! Holly had a massive year with the release of her critically acclaimed EP, late night tv performances, a headlining tour and an upcoming touring spot with the one and only Olivia Rodrigo. Music Existence chatted with Holly last year and you can check out that interview here.
8. Mitski – The Only Heartbreaker
The title says it all, folks! It’s heartbreaker season and Mitski is here to help us get through it. Fresh off the release of her sixth studio album Laurel Hell, Mitski has been dominating the indie rock scene for more than a decade.
9. Chelsea Cutler- the lifeboat’s empty!
Singer-songwriter and producer, Chelsea Cutler had a massive 2021 and this year is looking to be no different. She’s about the release the deluxe version of her sophomore album When I Close My Eyes and will make stops at all the hottest festivals including Coachella, Hangout Fest and Gov Ball 2022.
10. Taylor Swift – All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)
Let’s hope Jake Gyllenhall sees this.
