Alaina Castillo is continuing to prove herself as one of the most exciting new talents to emerge within the last year. The release of her EP, the voicenotes, in April showcased her skillful songwriting, exploring themes of heartbreak and healing. Just a few months later, she's back with new music, and we are not complaining. "Tonight" is an exciting change of pace, showcasing the 19-year-old's versatility and refusal to confine to any one genre.

"Tonight" is an unapologetic celebration for the independent and anti-social. Between the infectious melody, jumpy bassline, and electronic influences, Castillo has crafted a quintessential pop anthem that'll inevitably get stuck in your head. The single not only showcases her enviable vocal talent, but provides a glimpse into her bubbly personality with the singer teasing herself over her inability to rap at the bridge. Her positive energy is infectious and solidifies that Castillo has all the makings of a pop star.

After months of what feels like an endless quarantine, the idea of staying in on the weekend isn't exactly exciting anymore. Staying at home and avoiding social obligations once felt like a guilty pleasure but has now turned into a safety precaution. But Castillo's "Tonight" is a breath of fresh air, serving as a much needed reminder to celebrate staying in and partying on our own.
