New Music Round-Up: Kelela, Charlie Puth, P!nk and More...
AJ Tracey, Maroon 5 and Shakka are also back with new tunes...
Charlie Puth – 'How Long'
'Attention' proved that Charlie is more than capable of dark pop excellence and 'How Long' suggests that there's more where it came from. Fingers snaps, throbbing production and a brilliant vocal make 'How Long' one of Charlie's best songs to date.
P!nk – 'Whatever You Want'
Three songs in and it looks like Beautiful Trauma could be one of P!nk’s best albums to date. 'Whatever You Want' is a classic P!nk anthem jam-packed with emotion and a gorgeous melody. Hopefully this one will get the single treatment at some point.
Sam Smith – 'Pray'
The second teaser from Sam’s new album is another gorgeous gospel inspired anthem.
Maroon 5 & Julia Michaels - ‘Help Me Out’
