Disclosure Delivers Another Standout Caracal Track

In: Donovan, Music

Disclosure’s second album, Caracal, drops next month. Based on the first few tracks, I have a feeling the British electronic duo will avoid the dreaded sophomore slump. Both “Holding On” and “Omen” featuring Gregory Porter and Sam Smith respectively are fantastic. Especially the latter.

The latest off their forthcoming effort is equally as great. “Willing & Able” is another slinky laid-back house number showcasing yet another British talent. Kwabs who released last year’s “Walk” shows off his soulful chops on the sexy new track. Give it a listen below.

If looks alone could sell albums by the boatload, Leona Lewis would still be a platinum-selling artist. The X Factor winner never fails to serve a fierce glorious mug. Sadly though, Lewis hasn’t achieved that since her stunning debut effort, Spirit, featuring the chart-topper “Bleeding Love.”

The 30-year-old Brit drops her fifth studio album, I Am, on September 11. It’s her first with her new label Island Def Jam. The highly-underrated lead single “Fire Under My Feet” failed to do any damage on both sides of the pond. Here’s hoping “Thunder” yields her better results.

Leona may have channeled Adele for “Fire Under My Feet,” but this time around I get Emeli Sande vibes with the uplifting power ballad “Thunder.” Watch Leona emote her little heart out in the Sarah McColgan-directed visual featuring majestic views of the ocean, clouds and Los Angeles skyline.

Beyonce is great and all, but Kelly Rowland has and will always be my favorite member of Destiny’s Child. Naturally, I’m eagerly awaiting for the 34-year-old diva to drop new music. It appears the “Motivation” singer is prepping a comeback after taking a break to become a mother.

While vacationing in the Middle East, Rowland shared a clip of her enjoying the sunshine. Playing in the background appears to be a snippet of new music. Fingers crossed her fifth studio album is just on the horizon. Check out the teaser below.

With her fourth studio album just around the corner, Katharine McPhee just dropped another promotional single to hype up Hysteria. Following the infectious lead single “Lick My Lips,” the 31-year-old entertainer enlisted Ryan Tedder to help co-write the anthemic pop number. She premiered the track exclusively to Marie Claire.

“This song captures a time where I was finding strength from independence, love, and faith from the most peculiar places—hence life is stranger than fiction,” McPhee told Marie Claire

Stranger Than Fiction” is an airy pop offering that showcases McPhee’s vocal talents perfectly. Definitely give it a listen below.

For the past year, Gorgon City have been festival favorites due to their impressive debut album, Sirens. The English garage duo appear to be embarking on their new era by launching a killer new track.

If you liked their previous singles “Ready For Your Love” and “Go All Night” featuring MNEK and Jennifer Hudson respectively, their latest is in the same musical vein. They enlisted fellow English artist ROMANS to provide soulful vocals to the slinky deep house number. Check out the “Saving My Life” music video below.

Throughout her 1989 World Tour, numerous artists have joined Taylor Swift on stage, either to perform or to sashay down the runway during “Style.” Fifth Harmony and Little Mix are no means the biggest stars to sing alongside the 25-year-old singer, but they certainly delivered a couple of the most entertaining performances to date.

Taylor could easily become a new member for each respective girl group. Swift fully committed with both numbers, learning the respective choreography for “Worth It” and “Black Magic.” Check out both clips below.

There’s no denying that Max Martin has the ‘Midas Touch‘ when it comes to crafting hit singles. His resume includes countless of Top 10 singles, many of which have reached pole position on the Billboard Hot 100.

Recently, the prolific Swedish producer notched his 21st chart-topper with The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face.” Though Martin produces for both male and female acts, it’s his collaborations with the women that have yielded him the biggest successes. Katy Perry can thank Max for eight No. 1 hits while Taylor Swift and Britney Spears have four and three courtesy of his genius.

Check out my Top 10 favorite chart-toppers from Martin below. There’s no rhyme or reason. It’s just purely based on personal preference.

Matthew Koma’s New Track Is So F**kin Romantic

Though Matthew Koma is best known for dating Carly Rae Jepsen, he should be acknowledged for his talent as well. In addition to being a recording artist, he’s quickly making a name for himself as a go-to songwriter. Kelly Clarkson, Zedd, Hilary Duff, Kat Graham and naturally Jepsen are just a few artists who’ve used his songwriting skills.

The 28-year-old recently debuted an infectious new track titled, “So Fuckin’ Romantic.” The sax-heavy house groove emits a bright summery vibe. As great as the track is, I love The Knocks nouveau disco remix. The NYC duo are quickly becoming my favorite remixers. Check out the original version below, along with the remix.
