After going strong for five seasons, this Drama has accumulated a killer series soundtrack with hits from stars like Gwen Stefani, Lizzo and ABBA. Something that has always stood out about The Bold Type, was their ability to include more Gen-Z singers such as Tate McRae, Gracie Abrams, Alina Baraz, and Clairo but also add up-and-coming artists like ABISHA, Bagarre, and KIRBY, we love to see it.
