This Week’s Music: Travis Scott, Hailee Steinfeld And Jenny Lewis

This week’s new songs include a Travis Scott remix, Hailee Steinfeld’s latest break up track, and a new Jenny Lewis song.

This Week’s Music is a weekly column that discusses the weeks’ best, worst, and most interesting songs. We try to select songs of different artists and genres to keep things interesting and to please a variety of music fans.

This week’s new songs include a Travis Scott spanglish remix that features Lil Baby and Rosalia, Hailee Steinfeld’s latest break up track, and a new Jenny Lewis song. Have a look:


Travis Scott, Rosalia and Lil Baby – Highest In The Room

RELATED: This Week’s Music: Justin Bieber, Usher And Raye

Two weeks ago, we reviewed the original version of this song. We apologize, since this version is clearly superior. Featuring some melancholic and thoughtful guitars and vocals from Lil Baby and a Rosalia that refuses to sing more than two verses in English, this version of “Highest In The Room” is more alive and layered than the original. Maybe it’s the vocal range, the extended length or the fact that Rosalia is involved, this song is just better.


Hailee Steinfeld – Wrong Direction

RELATED: This Week’s Music: Drake, Travis Scott And Ed Sheeran

For those of us who didn’t know, Hailee Steinfeld was dating former One Direction member Niall Horan. The couple broke up and, according to some, this song is the result. “Wrong Direction” (Get it?!) is a strange choice for a lead single for Steinfeld’s upcoming album. The singer, mostly known for her awesome anthem to masturbation, is generally associated with upbeat Gen-Z friendly songs. Still, “Wrong Direction” is simple, emotional and charged. I’m sold.

Jenny Lewis and Habib Koite – Under The Supermoon

“I never had such a fright, I gasped on election night,” are the opening lyrics of Jenny Lewis and Habib Koite’s new song. In a statement, Lewis explained the song further, saying that it’s “a love song written in Jacmel floating in the Caribbean sea under the supermoon of November 2016 just days after the U.S. presidential election… a travelogue of sorts processed in real time.” We get it, Jenny. Like most of us, you’re traumatized by the 2016 U.S. elections. Lewis’ work is reliably wonderful, playful and profound. I can’t wait to see what the new year brings to her music.
