A Summery Ballad By Kim Petras, A Savage Remix From Megan Thee Stallion, And More Songs We Like

If navigating this pandemic has taught me anything, it’s that no matter how calm I am as a baseline, on occasion, I still play hopscotch on the spectrum of emotion. “Fugirlzi,” a track off Brooklyn indie outfit Store Front's debut EP Task, captures that kind of frazzled composure perfectly. The song, like many tracks on the warm, '90s-influenced collection, manages to be as soothing and buttery as it is dance-worthy. But its message of complexity about the ebb and flow of relationships and the duality of one's own mind — wrought with conviction and questioning — feels so appropriate in a time when certainty feels about as much of a sure thing as a tenant on a month-to-month lease. “We’ve got something in common / We’ve got nothing in common,” the hook beckons. “What she knows she knows she knows,” hits close to home because we’ve all been there; we’re there now — sure of something until we aren’t. —Virginia Lowman
