Singer Austin Mahone has just released the artwork for his his single, “What About Love.”
The 17-year-old musician teased his fans about the single’s release just last week via Twitter:
Everyone My First Single “What About Love” is now Available everywhere Around The World for Pre Order… instagram.com/p/ZoANcpLUDS/
— Austin Mahone (@AustinMahone) May 22, 2013
The track produced by RedOne will be featured on Mahone’s album which is set to be released this fall. The single is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. Mahone is currently travelling with Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift on the Red tour.
Rihanna’s new track “Diamonds” is a lot more slow burning than the club bangers we’re used to, but it gives her beautiful voice a time to shine. The single was produced by Stargate, who also did “Don’t Stop the Music,” “Rude Boy” and “Only Girl (In the World).”
Rihanna sings about a special boy in the chorus: ”So shine bright tonight, you and I/ We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky/ Eye to eye, so alive/ We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky.”
Rihanna told MTV this track sounds a lot more laid back and hopeful, which makes sense considering she describes her new album as a “happy and hippy record.” The single will be on her upcoming album, which will reportedly drop in November and MIGHT be called 7 Wonders (loves it).
Listen to it here:
Taylor Swift dropped the second single off her upcoming album Red called “Begin Again” and it’s an ode to love — maybe Conor Kennedy? Swift regales us with tales of her brand new beau, who continually surprises her by appreciating her awesome sense of humor (why would he?) and being all gentlemanly.
We also hear even more details about her horrendous ex-boyfriend, who didn’t think she was funny and hated when she wore high heels. (Obligatory speculation: Taylor Lautner??) Whoever it’s about, it’s a damn good track that we should appreciate without putting any faces on.
Listen to it here:
You can tell from the first 30 seconds of Kesha’s new single “Die Young” that you’re probably going to hear it A LOT at rager house parties and neon-lit dance clubs in the next couple months. We’ve haven’t heard new music from Kesha in two years (sigh) but this was well worth the wait.
While the single has a summery vibe, I don’t think that’ll stop you from blasting it at home with your BFFs and indulging in Kesha’s drink of choice, whiskey. She sings: “I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums / It’s such a shame that you came here with someone / So while you’re here in my arms / Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young.”
The Dr. Luke produced single was also co-written by fun.’s Nate Ruess. Kesha described her upcoming album Warrior, which is out on Dec. 4, as having a distinctly cock rock sound — whatever that means.
Listen to it here:
About discovering love in an unexpected place, the song features bouncy synths and a quick tempo. This song was also produced by Steve Mac, who also worked on ‘Glad You Came.’
What do you think of the new tune? While it sounds a lot like their first single, my prediction says they’ll do well with this new single. Because really, who doesn’t like a catchy tune to dance along to?
It was a hard couple of days for Directioners, most commonly known as hard-core fan girls for One Direction. One of the members Zayn Malik had enough of the hate he’d been receiving online and decided to delete his Twitter account, which obviously caused one huge frenzy. The majority of the comments were based on his relationship with Perrie Edwards. Before he decided to leave, he sent out a message to his followers:
Instantly, 1D fans were trending messages for Zayn to come back. Thankfully he looked past all the negative tweets and realized that Directioners could not live through this “crisis.” Especially since more than half of them dedicate their whole life to the boys, which include tweeting the heart throb daily.
In better news, if you didn’t wake up extra early this morning to hear the boy’s big announcement, it’s that their new single “Live While We’re Young,” will be on presale at midnight. The song will be their first single off their new album coming out this November. By the looks of the video, they’re still goofing around and enjoying what they do best. Who knows, maybe their new song will sound a bit different from what they’ve done in the past to match their new looks. Are you excited?
Watch the video here:
On Sunday, Rihanna tweeted the one and only celeb-blogger Perez Hilton and announced that her next single happens to be the site’s favourite off of her latest album, Loud.
“@PerezHilton hey boo, ur fav song is the brand new #LOUD single “CHEERS” to u being an A&R #RihannaNavy,” the singer tweeted.
Perez wasted no time answering this message, posting on his site, “Our girl Rihanna tweeted us some really exciting news! You might not know this, but we’re OBSESSED with her album Loud, in particular her track Cheers. If you haven’t heard it yet, you should be ashamed … but chin up, you’ll be in the know soon enough since RiRi told us Cheers is going to be her next single! ZOMG! Drink to that, yeah yeah!” Well, doesn’t someone sound excited! Truth is though, the track is pretty awesome, so we can’t really blame him!
Check out Rihana’s latest single, “Cheers (Drink to That)” below.
Shania Twain will be releasing a new single after a long hiatus, reports CTV.
The Canadian country singer will release her new single, titled ‘Today is Your Day,’ on June 12.
The song will first make an appearance on her new reality TV show ‘Why Not? With Shania Twain,’ which is featured on Oprah Winfrey’s network ‘OWN,’ and then will then be available on iTunes at 11 p.m. ET.
Twain has been missing from the music scene for quite a while now, after taking a long hiatus following the nasty split between her and former husband Robert Lange. This will be the first song Twain has written solo in six years.
Many, including myself, are excited for her return to music. I’m glad she took some personal time and found happiness again, so I couldn’t pick a better time for her to bounce back and return with full force!
‘Coldplay’ will be releasing a new single this week, reports MTV News.
The british band’s newest material is from three years ago, when they released ‘Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends’ in 2008. But now, a new single is set to drop on Friday.
The new single, titled ‘Every Teardrop is a Waterfall,’ will debut this Friday, which coincidentally, is also the same day they kick off their summer tour in Germany.
The band’s drummer, Will Champion, released a statement on the band’s official site, saying:
“Dear Friends, We’re about to play a bunch of summer festivals so it’s as good a time as any to put out a new song. “Evert Teardrop is a Waterfall” will be available digitally on Friday June 3rd at 12pm (BST), except in the UK where it’ll come out on the stroke of midnight between Satruday 4th and Sunday 5th June. We’ll also stream it here on Friday and give it a run out at Rock Im park. Love, Will”.
It’s been so long since they released new music, so I know many are excited about this. I find making fans wait that long is modern-day torture, I mean, three years is a long time. Gaga releases a new single every day. Hopefully they’ve spent their time perfecting the new album, though.
The song, titled ‘How R U Doin?’ is actually really catchy. It sort of rips off ‘Like a G6,’ but it’s good nonetheless. I’m really feeling the song and video, something I never thought I would say about them. Check it out below for a blast from the past!
Gaga’s held the #1 spot since August 2010, and has been escalating to this record-breaking number ever since. She is the queen of the Internet – Lady Twitter perhaps?
Leading up to the May 23 release of her second album ‘Born This Way,’ Gaga’s latest track ‘Hair’ will also be released today at 1pm PT / 4pm ET as part of iTunes’ “Countdown to Born This Way” promotion.
In an early review of ‘Hair’ by Rolling Stone, the track is described as an “inspirational song in the mold of ‘Born This Way,’ but it’s a bit weirder, mixing the yearning romantic melodrama of Pat Benetar’s “We Belong” with the hard industrial metal edge of Broken-era Nine Inch Nails.”
The track features E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons, whose sax appeared on last week’s new single ‘The Edge of Glory.’
I love that Gaga is releasing a new single every week. It gives fans a lot of anticipation and excitement without giving everything away. We’ll post the new single later on today, I’m sure it’ll be great!
Beyonce has released her newest single, called ‘Run The World (Girls),’ and it’s nothing short of fire.
Much like her single ‘Single Ladies,’ the song is a female anthem with heavy dance beats. I can see this being a smash hit… actually, it’s already on its way!
My only critique is that the song is a little repetitive… we get it Beyonce, you run the world. You don’t have to shout it over and over for four minutes. Whatever, it has a good beat and catchy chorus, so I’ll forgive her this time around. Return of Queen Beyonce!
Take a listen below, and let us know what you think!
