    1) I don't like Jennifer Lopez's songs. I only like one track (from the album) - "Give Me Track".

    2) I've been listening to a few old tracks by Mltr, and also some of their new tracks.

    3) I am on a train right now/at the moment.

    Notes: We don't always use "tracks". We would say "How many tracks are there on the new album?" or "It's the third track on her second album", but normally when we're talking about a musician's work, we say "songs" (if they're a singer!)

    We also don't often say "tracks of + band". We normally say "songs by [name of band]" or just " name of band + songs".
    I really like songs by Duran Duran.
    I love Duran Duran songs.
