WerQ: A collection of the latest LGBTQ (and LGBTQ-adjacent) music of 2017. Updated Fridays, for your convenience.
1. How You Feeling - Superfruit
Heartbroken, but make it fashion. Scott and Mitch party through the pain in this uncomfortably relateable dance anthem.
2. If I Dare - Sara Bareilles
Written for the soundtrack of Emma Stone and Steve Carrel's tennis face off movie Battle of the Sexes, Sara Bareilles sings of yearning and bravery on a track that I'm positive is going to play over a montage of Billie Jean King's lesbian love affair.
3. 90s Kids - Shamir
Genderqueer musician Shamir will make you nostalgic af with this meme montage, especially you 1990s babies out there!
4. Bike Dream - Rostam
The ex-Vampire Weekend member's first solo album sings of youthful romance with boys over heavy synths and an indie groove.
5. Take Me - Aly & AJ
Aly & AJ are back on the pop music scene, and the dreamy 1980's music video for their newest single gets nightmarish, sensual, and a bit homoerotic...
6. Cameo - Sam Tsui
Sam Tsui moves on from a fleeting romance with his 80s inspired original dance track.
7. The Gate - Bjork
Bjork is back! According to Genius, Bjork "opens the door to the world of Utopia, transitioning from her previous album Vulnicura."
8. Girls on Boys - Galantis & ROZES
"There were girls on boys, there were girls on girls." Galantis and Rozes sing of rebounding after the end of a messy relationship.
9. Heaven - State of Sound
Heterosexual and same-sex couples find heaven through a kiss in the ethereal video for State of Sound's latest track.
10. On Hold (Jamie xx Remix) - The xx
While The xx might be singing of an unrequited love, they've escaped to the haze of a party that anyone would want to be a part of in this remix.
11. Good Life - Keiynan Lonsdale
The recently out bisexual star from CW's The Flash is living how he wants to and finding joy in the little things with 'Good Life'.
12. Cut to the Feeling - Carly Rae Jepsen
While her music might not be as innocent as it sounds, Carly's music video for this summer bop gets us out of our seat every damn time.
