As the seasons change the one thing that doesn’t is the quality of music. If anything, it gets even better in this new season. Artists like Lady Gaga, the Weeknd, Selena Gomez and Tove Lo are releasing hot new music while we all start to bundle up. Time for readers to make a new playlist full of fresh new jams!
Lady Gaga: The Pop Queen has returned with her most emotional song since “You and I,” “Million Reasons.” The single off her new album Joanne is heart-wrenching and raw. The singer has departed from her techno and pop sounds for a more laid back acoustic sound this time. The ballad is rumored to be about her up and down relationship with ex fiancé Taylor Kinney. Bravo Gaga!
Selena Gomez: She’s is back! Gomez provides vocals with artist Tory Lanez for Cashmere Cat’s newest single “Trust Nobody.” She sounds better than ever in this sexy and secretive jam. Fans will be sad that this does not mean a new album from Gomez, but they can distract themselves with this perfect song while we wait.
Niall Horan: One Direction member Niall has re-surface the media world with the release of his first solo single, “This Town.” The single has risen in the charts after the announcement that the singer signed a record deal with Capital Records in September. The song echoes One Direction vibes but a more stripped acoustic version like the songs Horan co-authored for the group like “A.M” and “Story of my Life.” The excitement for a solo album is unreal. Double Thumbs up for Niall.
The Weeknd: Its seem as though every fall the Toronto based singer releases new material and now is the time. A year since the release of the megahits like “Can’t Feel My Face” and “Hills,”Abel Tesfaye is back with a new look and sound in “Starboy.” Singing with a more electric feel he sings with the help of duo Daft Punk. With a new album coming out Nov 25, the R&B singer is bound to take over airwaves and hearts of fans just like he did in 2015.
Bruno Mars: To others, Bruno Mars is back after 4 years since the release of his sophomore album Unorthodox Jukebox. With more groovy-ness than ever before, his first single titled same as upcoming “24K Magic” is in the top charts of itunes. For what feels like a sequel to “Uptown Funk”, the new single is even catchier with it’s 80’s vibes and lyrics full of swag.
Tove Lo: For pop lovers who are looking for a new artist to listen to, Tove Lo is the person. With her sophomore album Ladywood just being released, the singer is rising more than ever in the pop charts. Tove Lo has been credited for writing singles for famous artists but her music is the one that can be most interesting. The singles “Cool Girl” and “True Disaster” are perfect pop songs to put on the radio with its unique and intimate sound to nod your head to.
Be sure to catch Bruno, Lady Gaga and The Weeknd perform at the 2016 Victoria Secret Fashion Show on December 5th with new music! Besides Gomez, all these artists are planning to tour starting in 2017 so you better put on a heavy coat and get to those concerts.
