Ever wish you could step back in time and go disco-hopping with Madonna in the 80s? We imagine this would be the tune to soundtrack the moment.
Check out pop’s freshest newcomer Bianca, who is seriously getting into the groove with her debut single ‘Step It Up’.
Wait til’ you hear the fluorescent synths and the heavy reverb in the vocals. We almost forgot we were streaming it on Soundcloud and not a cassette player.
So, we were just reminiscing about the time we treated EverYoung to an all-expense paid brunch of crackers, when this popped up.
The awesome foursome is back with a merry new single titled ‘Icy Blue’ and it sounds every bit as warm and loveable as they are.
Eyal, Cherelle, Jack and Hollie treats us to a bubbly tune with summery guitars and free-flowing harmonies. They make it seem so effortless.
You might remember Kimbra as the songbird from the UK #1 hit by Gotye ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’.
Well the New Zealand singer is back with a merry little tune that makes you feel like you’re rollerskating on rainbows with the Jackson 5.
‘Miracle’ is the new single lifted from Kimbra’s second album The Golden Echo, which is yet to be released in the UK, but has already earned rave reviews from all corners of the internet.
American girl group Fifth Harmony serves up a sassy female-empowerment tune in ‘Them Girls Be Like’.
The R&B track calls out some girls’ selfie obsession with a Mean Girls reference. The girls sing, ‘If you’re thirsty, you can’t sit with us’.
The fabulous Nicole Scherzinger is back with a new single precariously titled ‘On The Rocks’.
Following the euphoric ‘Your Love‘, which peaked at #6 on the UK charts last month, the ex-Pussycat Doll diva is now back with a darker tune.
‘On The Rocks’ is a serious, cutting R&B ballad about a relationship at the end of the road.
Desperate for a sleep-in but you’ve already hit ‘snooze’ five times? Are you in critical need of a motivational tune to kick start your day? No worries, we’ve got you covered.
Check out this massive hands-in-the-air anthem by Jessica Mauboy, which was specially re-written for the Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony this month.
The 24-year old Australian pop star took to the stage (on the same line up as Kylie Minogue, no less) to belt out ‘I Believe – Anything Is Possible’ earlier this month and we reckon it’s a winner.
Dami walked onto the X Factor Australia stage this time last year as a shy, awkward singer with a surprisingly big voice. Now she’s armed and ready for the pop colosseum with her epic third single ‘Gladiator’.
The Korean-born Aussie chanteuse took out the competition last year with mentor Dannii Minogue by her side. She swiftly became the first ever Aussie X Factor winner to claim both a #1 single and album.
‘Gladiator’ is a huge pop ballad that sounds like something you would expect Sia to write for Katy Perry. Here we see Dami try on different melodic shapes in the verses before letting rip on the seismic chorus.
Okay, Ms Dami. You better go get ‘em.
Goddamn, goddamn, goddamn! She’s done it again.
Queen Bey flipped the internet and left fans reaching for respirators when she premiered her ‘Flawless’ remix featuring Nicki Minaj today.
The empowering hip hop anthem was always a clear favourite on Beyoncé’s self-titled video album, which came out in December.
But the remix features new X-rated verses and a line about the infamous Solange and Jay Z lift altercation.
Bey snarls, “Of course sometimes shit goes down when it’s a billion dollars on an elevator!” Which is more than she said in the lift when fists were flying.
Listen to the fierce ‘Flawless’ remix featuring Nicki Minaj.
The remix also sports a cover art of Beyoncé and Onika’s selfies. Can anybody else say, “I woke up like dis”?
We are so due for a new handclapping, foot-tapping anthem for curvy girls.
Hit ‘play’ on Meghan Trainor’s new jam ‘All About That Bass’, a feel good pop tune about being confident in whatever size you are.
Surely, boys and girls, we all know that everything we see in magazines and TV are photoshopped to death?
Beyoncé told us ‘Pretty Hurts’ and Lily asserts that it’s ‘Hard Out Here’ for a bitch. Now Meghan’s telling you to screw it and just embrace the bass.
Meghan sings, “Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top! Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size. She said boys like a little more booty to hold at night.”
Sonically, the rhythmic pop jam is an interesting blend of reggae melodies, doo wop harmonies and spoken word rap served on a simple beat with handclaps and (you guessed it) bass.
‘All About That Bass’ is produced by the same man behind Stacie Orrico’s hits.
The video has already clocked over 6.2 million views in over a month, so it seems that Meghan’s really getting her message across.
Recognise the face of Ben Kelly? There’s a good chance you might! Ben is one of Ireland’s best talents and he first came to our attention via his awesome Youtube videos years ago and then last year he was on The Voice where he became our favourite member of team Jessie J!
Since The Voice, Ben has been busy at work on his debut album as well as performing for the Queen and all over the UK! This week Ben has released his debut EP, ‘City Boy’ and to celebrate, there was an exclusive gig in a trendy North London venue. MP reporter Jon Hornbuckle went along to see Ben take to the stage.
The ‘City Boy’ EP (which you can preview here) is a collection of fun, catchy upbeat pop with big ballads and buckets of personality and you can’t go wrong with that formula! Alongside the title track, our favourites include ‘Criminally Gorgeous’ which is a slice of pop magic that would put even the poppiest popstars in popworld to shame!
Another highlight is the big ballad of the EP, ‘Lionheart’ – this is one you will be listening to on repeat over and over again and is a chance for Ben to unleash his inner Kelly Clarkson if you will. This song is BIG.
If the EP is as good as this then we cannot wait to see what Ben’s debut album will be like!
Download the EP on iTunes and visit Ben’s website or twitter to keep up to date with all upcoming gigs and releases.
