Jenna Lotti Drops an Anthem for All the "Sad Girls"

"'Sad Girls' is about giving the middle finger to your emotions...for the night."

"'Sad Girls' is about giving the middle finger to your emotions...for the night," explains Jenna Lotti about her new song "Sad Girls."

Born in Boston and now based in L.A., Lotti's musical career began with writing poetry as a form of self-medication, and then singing the verses to friends, who persuaded her to perform at a local open mic. Her performance blew the audience away and motivated Lotti to delve even deeper into music. She learned guitar and made YouTube videos in her bathroom.

Her sound—shaped by blues, soul, and pop elements—garnered well-deserved attention, leading to tours of the East and West Coasts, and making the move to L.A. There, she composed "Warning Signs," followed by a series of tantalizing singles, like "Hollywood" and "Deep." Right now, she's working on her self-titled EP, slated to drop later this year.

"Sad Girls" opens on creamy acapella vocals, followed by a shimmering synth. When the syncopated groove enters, the tune is rife with vulnerability, melancholic flavors, and nostalgia. Imbued with pop and hip-hop-lite textures, the melody glows with soft radiance, as Lotti's evocative tones paint a pensive picture.

"This is for all the sad girls / Living only in their own world / We can't help what we feel like / But it's gonna be alright / I'm so sick of being sad / Always worrying 'bout the things that passed."

Abby Anderson is Country's Next Kacey Musgraves

The 22-year-old Country Pop singer's new single is as giddy as it is catchy

Abby Anderson is aiming to dominate the country-pop airwaves with her new single, "Good Lord."

2019 is slated to be a big year for the up-and-coming country starlet. The Texas-bred singer made her international debut at the Country 2 Country festival earlier this month in London, where she shared a stage with the likes of Keith Urban, Chris Stapleton, Hunter Hayes, and Lady Antebellum. But that's not all. In the coming months, she will also be opening for Rob Thomas in more than 44 cities on his Chip Tooth Smile Tour and is also set to perform at some big-name festivals, including Stagecoach, Tortuga, and Country Thunder Arizona. In addition to a very hectic touring schedule, Anderson's new single, "Good Lord," is bound to garner attention from country pop fans all over the world.

The song comes on strong, with a rock-driven guitar lick soaring over a plucked banjo and a dance-worthy drum loop. For the verse, the distorted guitar disappears, allowing plenty of room for Anderson's soulful voice to sprawl out as she lists off all the reasons she loves her man: "It's the way you kiss me like nobody's watchin'/ It's the way you lean in every time I'm talkin'."

This sweet and giddy verse gradually builds into a large and anthemic chorus that will have no trouble filling up the many theaters and arenas Anderson will be performing in this year. "I bet the good lord took his sweet time," Anderson belts, "on your dark hair and your brown eyes."

This ecstatic and sunny love song is perfect for singing along to, whether you catch Anderson on tour this Summer, or while driving with the windows down on a beautiful spring day.
