Looks like Cody Simpson fans won’t have to wait too much longer to hear new music from the Australian cutie as he’s set to release his latest CD Surfers Paradise July 16.
Following his 2012 debut of Paradise, Surfers Paradise will show fans a more personal side of Australian born pop star. The album, in fact, is named after the country’s Gold Coast region, where Cody is from.
“I think this album really represents that piece of me, my lifestyle, and where I come from,” he said in a statement. “When making my first album Paradise it was sort of a journey to find myself as a young adult & artist. With Surfers Paradise the entire process felt more natural and comfortable, like being back home. I wanted to share that feeling with my fans.”
The album will feature his first single “Pretty Brown Eyes” as well as his recent single “Awake All Night.” Aside from the album release, Cody also has his summer Paradise tour which starts May 30 as well as the upcoming release of his very first book Welcome to My Paradise: My Journey out October 24.

After getting a little taste of what Beyoncé’s new music will sound like thanks to her many endorsements, her song “Grown Woman” has leaked and it is everything we’ve ever wanted from our real life Khaleesi and more.
We first heard a snippet of the song in her trippy Pepsi commercial where she has a dance battle with her former personas. We must wonder, though, if Beyoncé has been getting a little inspiration from her sister, Solange, as “Grown Woman” also features some similar sonic features. If so, can we please get a Beyoncé/Solange collab in the future? A Knowles family song would make my life. While their songs are incredibly lots of fun, unlike Solange’s lovely and incredibly under appreciated song “Losing You,” Beyoncé’s “Grown Women” feels bigger and more apt for her current stadium tour.
The song will probably be the first single off of Beyoncé’s currently untitled and date-less fifth album.

Ingrid Michaelson is known for her amazing music, and her newest song is no exception!
The singer released Without You on her YouTube channel earlier this week, and while it is a bit of a departure from her usual sound, it is nothing short of amazing!! Glad to see she continues to develop as an artist while staying true to herself.
Listen to Without You now! I promise you won’t be disappointed!!
Miley Cyrus fans get ready because there’s big news coming your way.
When it came to shedding the clean-cut Disney star image, Miley has clearly excelled. The media has deemed her the new bad girl of pop culture with her platinum blonde short ‘do and daring outfits lately. This new video capitalizes on that and more with some new music from the former Disney starlet. Most importantly, it teases us that she’s set to make a huge announcement at this Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards. I hope it has something to do with her music, maybe a new video or an album release date?!
I guess we’ll have to find out when The Billboard Music Awards airs Sunday, May 19 on ABC.
Beyoncé’s back with a new collaboration and as usual she does no wrong. In this clip of The-Dreams new song “Turnt,” Beyoncé flawlessly lends her voice to the chorus. Rapper 2 Chainz also lends his talents to the track. The song is super catchy and just with this clip, its beat will be stuck in your head. The track is the first single off of The-Dreams latest album IV Play, which will be released later this month on May 28.

After being signed to Pitbull’s record label Mr. 305 Inc., 27-year old up and coming hip hop artist Jamie Drastik has come out with his debut single “Chasing Shadows” and it’s a good one. The song offers a catchy pop/hip-hop sound that will have you up and moving. Having collaborated with Pitbull and Havana Brown on the song, it has all the makings of being an instant hit for the newcomer and possibly a summer anthem.

From fashion to music, the 90s is making a huge comeback. The decade’s third most popular boy band 98 Degrees (after Backstreet Boys and N*Sync, duh) have returned with their new club-ish track, “Girls Night Out.”
Funnily enough, the song is like my favourite go-to wine, also called “Girls Night Out.” It’s a favourite because this bad boy is $6.75 a bottle and contains more sugar than actual alcohol, which is also how I would also describe 98 Degrees’ new song. By that I mean it’s more style over substance though the alcohol is more than welcomed (if not necessary) when listening to “Girls Night Out.”
Okay, it’s not that bad. I just wanted a chance to allude to “Girls Night Out,” the drink. “Girls Night Out” the song is upbeat and catchy. But let’s all remember that the men of 98 Degrees are all quickly approaching their 40s, are married, and three of the four members are fathers themselves. Needless to say, their musical desires to hold every single woman in their arms is less than authentic. Basically, they’re trying to do what The Wanted are doing right now and it’s kind of freaking me out.
Alas, don’t let my bias cloud up your judgement. Take a listen below and tell me I’m wrong.
LISTEN BELOW: “GIRLS NIGHT OUT” WITH 98 DEGREES
Australian cutie Cody Simpson is out with his latest video for “Pretty Brown Eyes,” that will surely have brown eyed fangirls everywhere swooning and drowning in all the feels.
Showing off more than his vocal abilities and dance moves, the video shows Cody basically hanging by the pool either shirtless or in a tank top, and there ain’t nothing wrong with that. Enjoy.
All you 90′s kids out there, get ready because Backstreet’s back.
Backstreet Boys are in the process of putting the finishes touches on their new album, according to EW. The currently untitled album is set to be released later this year. This album will be their first full-length album since they separated from their record label, Jive Records.
Band member Brian Littrell told EW that because their fan base are now young adults, they hope their fans will want to buy a hard copy of their CD, especially because of the connection they had with them when they were young kids.
I feel like Littrell is on to something—us young adults have a close connection with this band because they created the music that (along with Britney Spears, The Spice Girls and N’Sync) defined our childhood. Also, Brian was always my favourite.
The band members might be married with children now, but that doesn’t mean they have lost their talent or edge. The sneak peak of their album goes to show that the boys still got it.

Justin Bieber gets holographic for will.i.am’s new video for “#thatPOWER.” The video, which dropped Friday morning, is a highly modern visual wonder. The Black Eyed Pea producer also seems to be taking some sartorial cues from the Biebs as he too rocks some drop crotch pants.
Will.i.am has recently been accused of plagiarizing “Let’s Go” featuring Chris Brown from his #willpower album.
Jason Derulo has just dropped the single, “The Other Side” off his currently untitled third album. Shockingly, the track doesn’t start with reminding us of his name.
It’s almost hard to believe Derulo has been around for three years—he’s been pretty successful and his music is the less aggravating of most top 40 hits. You can’t pretend you didn’t love “In Your Head,” or “Ridin Solo.”
While on On Air With Ryan Seacrest, Derulo told Seacrest that he wanted to make a record that he could “listen to all the time…not just this year, not just next year, but for a long time.”
This is a typical radio song that is bound to do well, but nothing will ever beat “Watcha Say.”
Looks like will.i.am’s new album will be heavy with big name collaborators. With artists like Justin Bieber, Britney Spears and now Miley Cyrus, the rapper seems to have roped in some of the hottest stars.
will.i.am released a new single titled “Fall Down” featuring Cyrus Tuesday morning.
The song is undeniably catchy like most of the rapper’s songs. This track isn’t obnoxiously techno heavy or geared towards the club-scene. It’s a perfect radio song, because it’s upbeat enough to be catchy but mellow enough to be a song to chill out too. Will.i.am may have struck gold with this one. This may just be my favourite single off of the rappers upcoming album so far.
Miley (who recently collaborated with Snoop Lion) sounds great too! She tweeted about the single and seems excited about its release.

Drake has a new song and it’s called “Girls Love Beyoncé” (featuring James Fauntleory who sings “Say My Name” as the hook).
Oh, dammit. Ladies, Drake knows. He knows our secret. He knows that we all love Beyoncé and with that knowledge, he know must carry the heavy burden of knowing all of our complex secrets. Next time we all congregate, we need to make a new secret and this time, we have to keep it on the down low. I’m looking at you, Sasha Fierce.

The X Factor’s Emblem3 has just released their new single “Chloe (The One That I Want),” on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show the morning of April 15.
This song falls into that pop-rock genre, describing their music as “a blend between Maroon 5, Sublime and kind of that 1D pop.” Just Jared Jr.
What do you think of their single?
“Chloe (The One That I Want)” by Emblem3 is now available on iTunes.

Hunter Hayes, the country cutie, has made country music cool again. Of course I still enjoyed it before it was cool, but it’s nice to know its socially acceptable again to like country.
His new single “I Want Crazy” is just a reminder of why people like him so much. Like Hayes, the song is cute, simple, and just really easy to love.
“I Want Crazy” is a single from his upcoming album Encore. You can preorder the album now on iTunes.
After having her new single leaked, Selena Gomez finally officially debuted her new track on Ryan Seacrest’s website on Saturday—two days earlier than it was set to be released, and eight days before she performs the track at the MTV Movie Awards. The Selenators even managed to crash the website when the song was released.
I have a team working to get RyanSeacrest.com back up… Selenators, u guys are in beast mode!!
— Ryan Seacrest (@RyanSeacrest) April 7, 2013
Selena Gomez wants to show us just how happy she is being single. “Come & Get It” is a new sound that we have yet to hear from the new star. It has a neat techno beat and interestingly empowering lyrics. If you thought “Love You Like a Love Song” was catchy, you will love this song. The single has already received great reception so far, and Gomez has thanked numerous fans over twitter individually, and collectively.

Alex Russo no more, Gomez is growing up in a graceful and tasteful way. Bye bye, Bieber.

Even though the last few weeks were kind of rough, things aren’t all that bad for Justin Bieber. His manager Scooter Braun tweeted yesterday:
— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) April 2, 2013
Wait, WHAT?! Did anyone just get a little excited?
Well, it’s not like it’s out of the blue. The boys are really good friends considering Scooter Braun manages the both of them, and The Wanted has opened for Justin in the past. (Let’s not forget that apparently Justin hit Siva Kaneswaran where the sun doesn’t shine!) Regardless – if Justin wrote it, and The Wanted’s going to record it – it’s going to make our heart pitter-patter.
We can’t wait to hear it!
We already bowed down to Queen Bey, but the new song (or two, depending how you look at it) she posted on tumblr has her demanding that we never stop bowing down to her royalty.
Her Royal Highness Beyonce says haters should just stop talking about her lip synching scandal and with their criticisms in general, and just to “Bow Down.”
She follows that up with “I Been On.” Both these songs are very tech-heavy, with tons of repetition and special audio effects. While these tracks will most likley not be on my Beyonce playlist or be one of those “Belt it out in the shower” tunes, they will be good dance beats and tracks I will blast to get pumped for a night out.
Beyonce’s done better, but they could be worse. What do you guys think?
While many might’ve been a little underwhelmed with Justin Timberlake’s latest single, “Suit and Tie (feat. Jay-Z),” things are starting to look up for the jack-of-all-trades’ musical comeback.
The former boy band singer performed two new songs at Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s DirecTV Super Bowl party last night. Titled “That Girl” and “Little Pusher Love Girl” respectively, these two tracks may just be what JT comeback naysayers (if there’s such a thing) needed to push them back onto the Timberlake love train.
Watch “That Girl” and “Little Pusher Love Girl” Below:
Dear Justin Timberlake, please just take my money already.
Okay, so the song definitely isn’t even anywhere near the same vicinity as Kelly Clarkson’s past hits (Miss Independent, anyone?), but “Catch my Breath” is damn likeable. The American Idol winner pretty much nails it with this song, because she perfectly captures where she is right now in her career. The single, which is supporting her upcoming Greatest Hits — Chapter 1 album, explains how Clarkson sometimes needs to take a chill pill and realize how far she’s come. I think that Clarkson totally deserves to give herself a pat on the back (or several) for all of the awesome work she’s done in the past. Let’s take a look at the singer’s career so far, shall we?
Five awesome moments in Kelly Clarkson’s career:
Who can forget this instant blockbuster hit, “From Justin to Kelly?” The film captures the awesome rapport between Clarkson and fellow American Idol contestant/dreamboat, Justin Guarini.
Remember the song, “Because of You?” If you don’t, I question your dedication to heartbreaking songs 101.
First winner of American Idol!
I wonder if Kelly knew that she’d be the first winner of the show that would become a cultural phenomenon.
