olly-murs-you-dont-know-love

There’s just something about Olly Murs. Perhaps, it’s his boyish charm. Whatever it is, I have a little crush on the 32-year-old UK singer. Naturally, I’m all about his latest offering. Especially, given the fact he shows off a little skin.

You Don’t Know Love” is the lead cut off Murs’ forthcoming fifth studio album which is still yet untitled. The mid-tempo bop is fantastic. It actually reminds me of Carly Rae Jepsen’s underrated “Run Away With Me.”

Check out the Charles Mehling-direcited visual below. It follows a heartbroken Olly in Las Vegas reminiscing about a lost love. If he’s looking for some rebound sex, I’m available 😉

zayn-malik-who

It’s a great week for Zayn Malik fans. The former One Direction member released not one, but two new tracks. On the heels of his Snakehips collaboration “Cruel,” comes his contribution to the Ghostbusters soundtrack.

Who” craftily incorporates the movie’s signature tagline “Who You Gonna Call?” It’s a nice nod without being cheesy. It’s clear the powers-that-be should’ve called Zayn for the official theme song. His slinky urban contribution is the best I’ve heard so far off the soundtrack.

Give “Who” a listen below, along with his Snakehips collabo “Cruel.”

nate-ruess-greatest-hits

The first episode was kinda meh, but ABC’s Greatest Hits has quickly become my summer guilty pleasure. I love walking down memory lane, revisiting some of the defining hits of the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s.

While it’s fun to watch artists relive their glory days, my favorite part of the show is when current artists cover the oldies. This week had a couple pairings that I absolutely loved.

Nate Ruess of FUN. fame teamed up with Foreigner for their iconic ballad, “I Want To Know What Love Is.” Meanwhile, Aloe Blacc joined the stage with Chicago for “You’re My Inspiration.” Miguel and Grace Potter also appeared on the episode to cover Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” and Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love A Bad Name” respectively. Check out the performances below.

Katy Perry Rises For 2016 Rio Olympics Music Video

If you’re not a Katy Perry fan, you better learn to love her latest offering. Especially, if you’re planning on watching the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. The anthemic balladRise” will be used by NBC during their coverage.

“This is a song that’s been brewing inside me for years, that has finally come to the surface. I was inspired to finish it now, rather than save it for my next album, because now more than ever, there is a need for our world to unite,” Katy said in a statement. “I know that together we can rise above the fear – in our country, and around the world. I can’t think of a better example than the Olympic athletes, as they gather in Rio with their strength and fearlessness, to remind us how we ALL can come together, with the resolve to be the best we can be. I hope this song can inspire us to heal, unite, and rise together. I am honored that NBC Olympics has chosen to use it as an anthem before and during the Rio Games.”

It’s no “One Moment In Time” by Whitney Houston or even “Home” by Phillip Phillips, but the Max Martin-produced track isn’t half bad. Personally, I would’ve much preferred something a bit more upbeat than moody, but whatever… it’s not heinous. Give the track a listen below.

britney-spears-make-me

Britney Spears was reportedly set to premiere “Make Me” during the 2016 Billboard Music Awards a couple of months ago, but for some reason she postponed it. Much to the delight of her fans, the 34-year-old finally released it. Honestly, it’s not bad, but I was expecting more given the hype from her team, including featured artist G-Eazy.

“You guys are gonna love it. You gonna eat it up. It’s big, it’s big. It’s a big record. It’ll go off in the clubs. It’ll sound good on radio,” the rapper stated. With a solid remix, I can definitely see “Make Me” impacting on the Billboard Dance chart and clubs, but the original version is a little to mellow, IMHO.

“Make Me” is the lead cut off Brit’s forthcoming ninth studio album, which still has no name. Originally, “Pretty Girls” was supposed to kick off her new era, but wisely, Spears, along with her team, are pretending that mishap never happened 😉

Give “Make Me” a listen below and be sure to weigh in afterward. On a side note, how hot does she look on the official cover art. Las Vegas certainly looks great on her.

Hailee Steinfeld & Zedd Debut Collabo ‘Starving’

After the release of her well-received EP, Haiz, the 19-year-old Oscar nominee is prepping to drop her first full-length album. Hailee Steinfeld wisely teams up with German DJ Zedd for the lead cut off her debut LP.

While it was all about female masturbation for “Love Myself,” this time around Steinfeld craves the taste of her lover. “I didn’t know that I was starving till I tasted you”, she sings on the chorus.

Starving” isn’t a straight out EDM club anthem. Instead, it starts off slow before building to a throbbing beat. It’s not as poppy as “Love Myself,” but quite good nonetheless. Give it a spin below.

Tinashe’s Superlove Is Super Sensational

Tinashe is back and thank God!!! I love the 23-year-old singer and feel she’s just on the cusp of breaking through. Definitely underrated.

Produced by The Dream and Tricky Stewart, “Superlove” is reportedly the new lead single from her anticipated, and long-delayed, second album, which BTW is no longer called Joyride. I suppose her team wants to start from scratch after “Player” featuring Chris Brown bombed, despite being fantastic.

Though the cover art is serving up some 80s realness, the track sounds more early 00s. It sounds like something Ciara would’ve released during her “Goodies” era. Fingers crossed this gets some radio support. Give the sensational bop a listen below.

ariana-grande-jimmy-fallon-snapchat

Without a doubt, the numerous filters are the best thing about Snapchat. Who doesn’t love seeing themselves as a puppy, monster, flower child or drag queen? Ariana Grande and Jimmy Fallon put the app’s different lenses to use for an adorable duet on Grande’s “Into You.”

Speaking of the track, why this song hasn’t cracked the Top 40 yet is insane. It’s much better than “Dangerous Woman” and my favorite pop song this summer, so far. Maybe this little stunt might propel it higher on the chart.

Give the cute Snapchat clip a view below. It includes one very creepy face swap. Does anyone’s face ever look good on someone’s head?
