Or just wanting something new for your playlist? Framed around the Groove of the Night, we've got some picks you won't want to miss. Below, check out our latest obsessions, rated on a (slay) scale of Super Chill to Wig Snatched.
Lexxi Saal - "Break a Bottle"
Sometimes, you just need to get out of your own mind. Lexi Saal bends the euphoric notions of the dance floor with a breezy, addicting melody ripe for rolling the windows down. "I got a dirty secret I don't know how to keep," she sings into a haze of sloshed drinks and magnetic, midnight beats. The song, drenched in trembling guitar and playful, sensual vocal distortion, "came from me wanting to write a dance song inclusive to everyone who like me wants to have a good time," she
says. We're just here for a good time, and this is the cream of this week's crop.
Slay Scale: Wig Snatched
Happy birthday to the world's biggest genre
On this day in 1973, Clive Campbell, the Jamaican-American "selector" known as DJ Kool Herc, hosted a "back to school jam" at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the Boogie Down Bronx of New York City.
Armed with a booming sound system and reggae beats, Herc– a shortened nickname for "Hercules"– commanded insatiable audiences across the South Bronx with his unique looping technique called the "Merry-Go Round." "[I knew that] they were waiting for this particular break," Herc later said, "and I got a couple of records that got the same break up in it. I wonder how it would be if I put them all together."

Raymond's popularity sheds light on a bizarre underside of the Animal Crossing fandom.
Raymond is a smug cat who highlights his heterochromatic eyes with hipster glasses.
He is essentially the same exact character as every other Animal Crossing villager with a "Smug" personality type, but again, and this is very important, Raymond is a cat with heterochromatic eyes and hipster glasses. As such, he has completely broken the Animal Crossing community.
