New Music Round-Up: Demi Lovato, Disclosure, Camila Cabello
Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B, Stefflon Don and Galantis also drop new tracks...
Clean Bandit are unstoppable at this point and Demi Lovato's ever-sublime vocals takes their latest release 'Solo' to even greater heights. With a stuttered chorus à la 'Anywhere', this summer anthem celebrates self-love in the face of heartbreak.
Disclosure - 'Ultimatum (feat. Fatoumata Diawara)'
In the biggest surprise of the week, Disclosure are back! The sibling duo's new single 'Ultimatum' sees them return to the dance floor with a breezy, house banger. Ugh, how we missed them!
Camila Cabello & Pharrell Williams - 'Sangria Wine'
After months of teasing, Camila Cabello unleashes her sexy summer tune 'Sangria Wine' with the one and only Pharrell Williams. This one will be on repeat all summer, for sure.
Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled & Cardi B - 'Dinero'
Finally! Jennifer Lopez's mega-collab with Cardi B and DJ Khaled was first known about at the beginning of the year and it does not disappoint after such a long wait. The Spanglish banger unites two of Bronx's finest who have one thing on their minds: to get that money.
Christina Aguilera & Demi Lovato - 'Fall In Line'
'Fall In Line', the official lead single from Christina Aguilera's comeback album Liberation, is one incredibly powerful duet with Demi Lovato that stands for female empowerment in a massive way.
Stefflon Don - 'Senseless'
Stefflon Don takes us to Jamaica with her brilliant new single 'Senseless', filled with sugary sweet hooks and an irresistible rhythm that'll get everyone grooving this summer.
Christine & The Queens - 'Girlfriend (feat. Dâm Funk)'
Christine & The Queens' return to pop comes with a massive mission statement: destroy macho culture by embracing it. 'Girlfriend' strips female sexuality and desire of the male gaze to reclaim it and celebrate it for all of its magic.
Shawn Mendes - 'Where Were You In The Morning?'
The latest track to drop from Shawn Mendes' upcoming self-titled album is a dreamy track of infatuation, on which his vocals somehow sound even better than we've heard so far.
Galantis - 'Spaceship (feat. Uffie)'
Galantis recruit Uffie for their brand new single 'Spaceship', a relentless dance anthem that is bursting with euphoria, like only they can do.
Pale Waves - 'Kiss'
Our favourites, Pale Waves capture the butterfly-inducing feelings of a new romance on their shimmering new song 'Kiss'.
Big Shaq - 'Man Don't Dance'
Big Shaq returns with his second single 'Man Don't Dance', the follow-up to last year's massive 'Man's Not Hot'.
Rachel Foxx - 'Wish'
Rachel Foxx's 'Wish' is an absolutely gorgeous trip back to early '00s R&B, with her buttery smooth vocals and the flirtatious production very nearly disguising the fact she wants to switch her man for a new one.
Betty Who - 'Taste'
Yes. Yes. YES. Betty Who reveals her inner vixen with the insanely sexy midnight calling of 'Taste', an electro-fused banger of a booty call.
Jae Stephens - 'You Love That'
Jae Stephens plays guys at their own game on the fantastic 'You Love That', a synth-heavy R&B bop that explores the good girl persona.
Louis VI & Jelani Blackman - 'Floatin''
Louis VI teams up with Jelani Blackman for his fourth single of the year, 'Floatin'', a smooth-as-hell-yet-quite-cold track about the cost of his D.
James Bay - Electric Light
James Bay's second album Electric Light finally arrives today after months of anticipation. Lead single 'Wild Love' threw longtime fans off as Bay traded in straightforward guitar ballads for synths, revealing more intricate pop sensibilities, and much more of that can be found on the very brilliant album. While exploring different sounds in a more pop-orientated arena, he hasn't lost his knack for storytelling or stadium-ready hooks. He definitely passes the sophomore album test.
13 Reasons Why - Season 2 Soundtrack
Selena Gomez's country-infused EDM-lite bop 'Back To You' leads this eclectic affair, which features songs from OneRepublic, Khalid, Logic and Years & Years.
The Ramona Flowers - Strangers
The X-rated artwork for Strangers would make anyone curious enough to listen to The Ramona Flowers' new album, however we can confirm that the electro-pop affair is more than worthy of your time.
