Billie Eilish graced the world with her 007-inspired ballad, while Justin Bieber dropped his fifth album, 'Changes', which is full of bangers.
February may be the month of Valentine's Day, but it's not the love of our significant other we're celebrating - we're celebrating our love of brand new music.

'Stupid Love' - Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is back with her brand new anthem, 'Stupid Love', after it was leaked amongst fans a month earlier.
Working with hit-maker, Max Martin, 'Stupid Love' is set to appear on Lady Gaga's highly anticipated sixth album.
'The Other Side' - SZA, Justin Timberlake
As a star and executive producer of the upcoming animated movie, Trolls World Tour, it only seems fair that Justin Timberlake's new bop features on its soundtrack.
'The Other Side' sees Timberlake collaborate with SZA, who said "The creative process of working with [Justin] and the team was filled with such excitement. It's an energy you can feel in both the song and music video."
'Boyfriend' - Mabel
Fresh from winning Best British Female at this year's BRIT Awards, Mabel dropped another single called 'Boyfriend'.
However, the tune's title seems to be misleading, as Mabel posted to Twitter saying "wanting someone in your life doesn't mean you can't still be dat b***hh".
'Tondo' - Disclosure, Eko Roosevelt
Disclosure have welcomed in 2020 with a bang; first, they dropped their incredible collaboration with Khalid, and now they're bringing disco to us.
Teaming up with Cameroonian musician Eko Roosevelt, 'Tondo' sees Disclosure leave their deep house beats for something funkier and fresher.
'Mistakes' - Jonas Blue, Paloma Faith
Paloma Faith has teamed up with hitmaker, Jonas Blue, on 'Mistakes' which they claim to be heavily influenced by Jonas' "house and garage upbringing".
The 'Mama' producer praised Paloma, saying "I've wanted to work with Paloma for a long time and this just connected the dots for us to be able to collaborate in a perfect way."

'After Hours' - The Weeknd
Fans have speculated that the deep, meaningful lyrics mean that Abel is singing about another ex - Bella Hadid, as he sings "I'll risk it all for you. I won't just leave. This time, I'll never leave".
'Feel Me' - Selena Gomez
Ever since she performed 'Feel Me' on her Revival tour in 2016, Selena Gomez's break-up song has become a fan-favourite, and she has finally released it for the world to put on repeat.
In the song - which was originally only available on vinyl sold at USA's Target stores - Selena sings of an ex regretting the end of his relationship.
'Old Me' - 5 Seconds of Summer
5 Seconds of Summer have dropped yet another bop from their upcoming fourth studio album, 'C A L M', in the form of 'Old Me', following the likes of 'Easier'.
For the artwork, 5SOS shared adorable throwback snaps of themselves, including drummer, Ashton, as a little baby cuddled up on his bed, and Luke Hemmings rocking a mullet.
'Modern Loneliness' - Lauv
Lauv just keeps making anthems, and his latest - 'Modern Loneliness' - is no different.
Marking his love for the song by tattooing the title on his body, 'Modern Loneliness' builds up to a full-on karaoke belter, despite the deep lyrics such as "Love my friends to death but I never call them, I never text."
'ROXANNE (Remix)' - Arizona Zervas & Swae Lee
Arizona Zervas' 'ROXANNE' has taken the Big Top 40 by storm, and now he's tapped Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee for the official remix.
The pair even performed the remixed rendition of the tune on Post Malone's Runaway Tour in Chicago.
'Tequila' - Jax Jones, Martin Solveig, RAYE & Europa
Teaming up together, again, under their alias Europa, Jax Jones and Martin Solveig have teamed up with RAYE for anthem 'Tequila'.
It's classic house with catchy lyrics, just like their previous work with Madison Beer, 'All Day and Night'.
Friday, 14 February 2020
'No Time To Die' - Billie Eilish
Released at the same time as a new trailer for the Daniel Craig film, the 18-year-old sings "Now you'll never see me cry," over a chilling piano melody.
'Forever' - Justin Bieber feat. Post Malone & Clever
Finally, Beliebers have got the collaboration they've all been waiting for - one between Justin Bieber and his close friend, Post Malone.
'Forever' is one of the many collaborations on Justin's fifth studio album, 'Changes', and sees Post Malone rap about the struggles of a relationship.
'To Die For' - Sam Smith
Sam Smith teased the release of their single 'To Die For' by opening their very own wig shop, just as cryptic as all of the best pop stars.
As they dropped their hit on Valentine's Day, Sam also announced that 'To Die For' is the title for their upcoming album, saying "I am more proud of this album than anything I've ever done."
'Reminds Me' - Kim Petras
Kim Petras has dropped her first banger of 2020, after she released her mixtape 'TURN OFF THE LIGHT'.
'Reminds Me' is a steady trap ballad, and feels very fitting to her recent debut album, 'Clarity'.
Friday, 7 February 2020
'Intentions' - Justin Bieber feat. Quavo
'Intentions' sees him team up with Migos' Quavo in an attempt to support a nonprofit organisation, Alexandria House, which offers safe housing to women and children.
'Birthday' - Anne-Marie
'Birthday' is Anne-Marie's first single since she dueted with Lauv on 'lonely', and sees her feel herself as she sings "I'ma do what I like, I'ma eat what I like".
'No Judgement' - Niall Horan
While fans are eagerly awaiting for 'Heartbreak Weather', Niall Horan has graced them with his new tune, 'No Judgement'.
Expect a catchy melody and an even catchier hook, as the Irish lad admitted that he couldn't be more excited for his fans to hear this song.
'Know Your Worth' - Khalid, Disclosure
One year ago, Khalid and Disclosure teamed up to bring us the anthem that was 'Talk'. Now, they've teamed up again to produce bassy dance banger.
"Find someone who’ll love you at your worst," sings Khalid.
'Experiment On Me' - Halsey
The banger is fierce and feisty, just like the movie, and sees Halsey really crank up the volume for the chorus, where she sings "I’m pretty like a car crash. Ugly as a lullaby."
'Let's Be Friends' - Carly Rae Jepsen
Just days before Valentine's Day, Carly Rae Jepsen has dropped a brand new song... But don't expect lovey-dovey lyrics; she's brought us a break-up bop.
Carly Rae Jepsen giggles her way through the song, as she demands that she never speak again to her now-ex.
