2016 is showing up to be the year of comebacks from pop’s greatest. We have Lady Gaga, JoJo, and now Bruno Mars joins the club. Bruno has taken about 4 years off with the only single being the Mark Ronson smash, “Uptown Funk” and his iconic superbowl performance alongside Beyonce and Coldplay. Other than that we haven’t heard any solo material since Unorthodox Jukebox, back in 2012.
Bruno Mars is now back and not only dropped his new single “24K Magic” but the visuals and the album cover (featured above) to go along with it. This track had to be huge following his legendary success of “Uptown Funk”, and I believe he did that fantastically.
“24K Magic” brings the funk right back in the game with an almost Pharrell sounding production, it’s “Uptown Funk”…but sexier. The video gives me Beyonce “7/11” vibes, but better, and the song makes more sense. Bruno did the damn thing!
We need a male pop-star back in the game currently run by females and Bruno brings that.
Watch the video below!
Let me start off by saying, Oct. 14th can’t come soon enough.
JoJo is on a mission to give us her best form of art yet, and this track “Music” is something I’m sure a lot of people can relate too. This track is so simple, yet one of the most emotional tracks on the album. She has released banger after banger with “Fuck Apologies” and “FAB“, and now she gives us a very different yet raw side to her.
“Music” is a standout track on an already standout album. She pours out raw emotion, talks about her lost father, and using music as her escape. Like I said, something everyone can relate to. Simply perfect.
Mad Love is due out Oct. 14th. Go get it.
Everyone has been a bit skeptical from Lady Gaga‘s comeback track, “Perfect Illusion“. I have loved it since the beginning and it hasn’t changed.
While it’s no “Bad Romance” or “Just Dance”. “Perfect Illusion” is in it’s own lane. People are expecting the crazy, she is bringing the crazy in a different way. I believe this album is going to be one of the top albums of the year.
“Million Reasons” is the emotional and heart felt side of her. She debuted the song in Nashville as a part of her epic Dive Bar tour, which is the greatest thing a pop-star of her stature to ever do. She explained the song as “all these men giving her a million reasons to walk away, but one to stay”.
The Joanne era is going to be a game changer in pop music. Take a listen to “Million Reasons” below! After the Jump check out her full Dive Bar Tour performance including 2 other new tracks!
Joanne is due out Oct. 21st.
MiC LOWRY has really been on the grind as of late, as they are currently touring the UK on Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” tour. Their Popularity has skyrocketed, as it should, for them, and a few days ago they released the video for their smash single, “Oh Lord”.
I love everything about these guys, and “Oh Lord” is such a banger, from the production to the Phil Collins sample. We did a more in-depth feature on them if you want to check that out, but other than that, just press play above!
Just a week after The Weeknd dropped his single, “Starboy” featuring Daft Punk, he drops another track even better, “False Alarm”.
This track is from his upcoming album, Starboy, and I am loving it at first listen. It has a lot of different sounds to it which excites me for the rest of the album!
Take a listen below!
JoJo is making her first album in 10 years something really special. “FAB” or “Fake Ass Bitches” might be one of my favorite tracks off an already amazing album.
JoJo has never been shy about her haters and relationship problems, and this might yet another anthem given to us by the one and only. This woman is a true superstar in every aspect, and I am so glad that she has resolved her recording problems because the world needs her music. “FAB” is accompanied by Remy Ma, who is an unlikely feature, but fits perfectly to fuel the anthem to another level.
JoJo’s long awaited album, Mad Love, drops October 14th. I highly suggest you buy this album and support a true artist in every aspect.
JoJo is back.
One of our Artist Spotlights, Mullally, has given us some serious fire with “Wonderful”. This track is more upbeat and laced with love. Mullally’s vocals are a standout on this Jamie Lidell produced masterpiece, and at just 20 years old, this guy can only get better from here.
I don’t know what else this man has in store for us, but if its anything like the last 2 tracks he has dropped, we will be patiently waiting here for it!
