Music makes everything better, right? It brings people together and good music is like good food, it’s just good… plain and simple. On days like these, when FOMO (fear of missing out) has been replaced by FOGO (fear of going out), the door is open to exploring new music. Who better to talk us through what’s on her current staying-in-is-the-new-going-out playlist than Kuwait’s first female hip-hop DJ Farah Bishara (aka DJ Bonita).  

1 LSD – Skegss

“A sweet little surfer punk song that always puts me in a good mood!”

2 It Was A Good Day – Ice Cube

“A hip-hop classic with a smooth Isley Brothers sample. Need I say more?”

3 Toast – Koffee

“Because every playlist needs a song that reminds them to be thankful!”

4 Dancing Mood – Delroy Wilson

“Reggae music always makes me forget about worldly problems. This song takes me to a slow summer day by the sea.”

5 Bebey – Theophilus London

“From his newly released album – sweet calypso vibes for a mental vacation!”

6 Easy (Ft. Wiz Khalifa) – Caye

“My most-played song since 2018! It’s sooooo GOOD!”

7 Midsection – Kaytranada & Pharrell

“Two legends on one track. Heaven!”

8 Savage – Meg Thee Stallion

“Meg is the one to watch this year! Such a fun sassy song!”

9 Bad Decisions (Purple Disco Machine Remix) – Two Door Cinema Club

“An already fun tune remixed into what should be everyone’s favorite feel-good dance anthem!”

10 Whoa (Remix Ft. Pharrell) – Snoh Aalegra

“This track is sooo vibey! Snoh’s vocals paired with Pharrell’s sing-song rap is perfection!”
