NEW MUSIC: Swindle x Daley – Sympathy



I have been waiting to hear Daley‘s vocals for so long now. He has finally graced us with this amazing collaboration with Swindle. I am not familiar with Swindle right now, but after hearing this greatness I will definitely do some back-tracking.

This track is all funk with a very Prince inspired sound, if you can’t already tell from the cover art of the EP. Purple Walls is a short four track EP that will be released in February. For now we have the Daley assisted track in all its greatness to tide us over. Take a listen to the track below!

NEW MUSIC: Ed Sheeran – Shape of You x Castle on the Hill


Just a week into 2017, and Ed Sheeran has dropped not one, but two tracks off his highly anticipated upcoming album, Divide.

For those of you that have followed us from the beginning will know the appreciation we have for Sheeran, so the release of new music has us ecstatic! First we will dive into the pop infused track, “Shape of You”. While being compared to Sia’s, “Cheap Thrills”, Ed definitely brings this track in his own lane. This track is going to be absolutely huge.

Next is “Castle on the Hill”, which gives us some signature Sheeran rasp, and I’m loving it. It is less of the regular flow that we are used to from him, but another banger nonetheless.

Ed Sheeran has definitely been missed from the business, and it is about time for a male “popstar” of his talent to bring the charts alive with real music again!

NEW VIDEO: M.O – Not In Love [Ft. Kent Jones]

I have always been a huge fan of M.O, they just keep producing smash after smash and “Not In Love” is no exception. They just released the videos to accompany the catchy track and it is everything you want from a girl group. With all the drama of other groups, M.O has remained consist with their music and I will keep supporting them and their careers.

The video is pretty basic compared to other’s they have released (“Dance On My Own“), but the track speaks for itself. I love everything about this.

NEW MUSIC: Zayn & Taylor Swift – I Don’t Wanna Live Forever


This unexpected collaboration came to light last night, and then recently after dropped, and is now taking over the airwaves.

The unlikely collab of Taylor Swift and Zayn for the new Fifty Shades movie has just dropped, and it is amazing. “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” is written by Taylor herself, but the production is definitely down Zayn’s alley. There are times when Zayn’s vocals sounds a lot like Gallant. It’s moody, sexy, and just all around a dark sounding track. It’s pop perfection for the end of 2016.

The most surprising factor on this song is how much both of their vocals have improved since we last heard them. I have never really been a fan of Taylor but this gives me some hope on the release of new music.

Anyway, take a listen below!


Marian Hill – Back To Me [Ft. Lauren Jauregui]


Marian Hill has always been a huge talent in the industry, and now she gives us an unlikely collab with Fifth Harmony’s,  Lauren Jauregui. With Camila Cabello being the first of the group to gain her first solo #1 (“Bad Things“), the other girls are right behind her.

Jauregui has always had an almost indie taste in music, with her Spotify playlist including artists like HAIM, Bon Iver, and the 1975. This collab is definitely right down her alley, and I have to say that this track is nothing short of a smash.

It gives us a more sultry side of Lauren and Marian Hill gives us their usual vibes. The vocals behind Marian Hill, Samantha Gongo’s, just flow so effortlessly with Laurens. It definitely sounds like Marian Hill’s previous track, “One Time“, but way better.

I’ll be interested to see how this does on he charts and we already know Marian Hill will finally start to get the recognition they deserve.

Take a listen below!

NEW VIDEO: Jessie J – Can’t Take My Eyes Off You (Cover)

I have always thought Jessie J was a superstar. Her first album was pure pop perfection, and in the years to follow she kind of lost that raw soul, and transitioned to more pop. She has had some smash hits since then, and then kind of disappeared from the game, until now.

“Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”, while still a cover, is absolutely amazing. It is for a makeup campaign so there is no word on new music from her just yet. The arrangement and just hearing her vocals again is what excites me.

Jessie J is a full on artist with amazing song-writing abilities and a voice to match. She is the full package, and I hope this track will transition to new music because she is definitely missed.

After the jump, take a listen to one of the greatest songs of our generation written by the amazing Jessie J.
