!! OMG Playlist: June 2022 !!

OMG Playlist June 2022

Every month, our music editor ED curates a special selection of newly released music for the OMG Playlist on Spotify (follow us @omgblog).

If you were celebrating Pride last weekend, then surely you heard Queen Bey’s new single “Break my Soul”. Beyoncé knew exactly what she was doing when she dropped this song during Pride Month! Everything about it—the uplifting lyrics, the house beat, and the Big Freedia feature, all scream G-A-Y. We love the spirit of the song paired with the “Show Me Love” sample. Can’t wait to see what Beyoncé is cooking up for her album Renaissance which is coming out next month!

One of our favorite new releases this month is “SHAKE DAT” from River Moon. The song was “lyrically inspired by the male and female call and response songs like ‘Promiscuous’ by Timbaland and Nelly Furtado and ‘B R Right’ by Trina and Luda while referencing M.I.A. and Diplo’s work on her Kala album.” River covers both “male and female” parts of this song and kills it! We recommend you play at this at the peak of your next party.

We’re so excited for the comeback of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs! Their new single “Spitting off the Edge of the World” features Perfume Genius (who also dropped his incredible album Ugly Season this month) and is like a hazy sonic dreamscape. It’s a song for when you’re moving slow in the morning with the sun on your face, or walking home late at night a little tipsy and appreciative. Make sure you check out the music video, directed by Cody Critchloe!

It doesn’t stop there! We have over two hours of releases, including tunes from TR/ST, Isabella Lovestory, Objekt, LSDXOXO, Swan Meat, and many more!

Check out the entire playlist above or on Spotify and dance with us!

!! OMG, WATCH: Arsonist almost sets himself on fire trying to burn down a Pride flag display !!


In the words of Nelson from The Simpsons: HAAAAA HAAAAAA!

Even after half a dozen attacks on the rainbow flag, one Michigan neighborhood is showing that their community won’t back down to hate and violence. A new security video out of Lansing, Michigan from early Tuesday morning features a man dousing a Pride flag in gasoline before lighting it on fire — and he nearly takes himself with it. Such a shame! Lost opportunity, flag! Check it out after the jump!

!! OMG, quote of the day: Chris Pratt says he’s actually not a religious person, attempts to clear the air on online backlash !!

“Religion has been oppressive as f*ck for a long time, (…) I didn’t know that I would kind of become the face of religion when really I’m not a religious person. I think there’s a distinction between being religious—adhering to the customs created by man, oftentimes appropriating the awe reserved for who I believe is a very real God—and using it to control people, to take money from people, to abuse children, to steal land, to justify hatred. Whatever it is. The evil that’s in the heart of every single man has glommed on to the back of religion and come along for the ride.”

Chris Pratt, who attends Zoe Church, which is popular with celebrities like Justin and Hailey Bieber, was founded by pastor Chad Veach (aka Pastor Chad) who executive-produced a 2017 film that equated “sexual brokenness” with “same-sex attraction.”
