1:11 of !!!!!!!

Back in September, songstress Charli XCX released a music video for her new song SuperLove and at the time, we learned that she was hard at work on the release of her next album. Today we get to hear, in full, a new Charli track titled Allergic to Love that may or may not be on her new album … reportedly due out this year. Charli has been excitedly talking about the new music she’s been making on her social media accounts so I’m not surprised that she wanted to share the goods with her fans. What is surprising is how exciting this new song sounds. Click below to hear it for yourselves. More »

First Listen: Danity Kane Releases A Comeback Single Titled ‘Bye Baby’

"It might look insane / But it’s hard to walk in my shoes"

Back in August of last year we first heard that former Making The Band girl group Danity Kane were officially back together and planning a return to the music scene (er, sans one member … D. Woods unceremoniously got the axe). Since that time, the ladies performed a reunion/comeback concert at the House of Blues here in Los Angeles, CA and were met with an audience full of appreciative fans. Today we get our FIRST LISTEN of the group’s just released comeback single titled Bye Baby. As you can hear below, the song has a bit of a 70s/Disco sound that works well with their collective voices. Have a listen, won’t you? More »

Britney Spears’s Song ‘It Should Be Easy’ Is Gettin’ Remixed For Da Club

BUT, it won't be her next official single

Our dear Britney Spears is ready to infuse the danceclubs with a few new remixes of one of the songs off her new album Britney Jean and I, for one, couldn’t be more thrilled. When Britney dropped her single Work Bitch! she didn’t need any stinkin’ remixed for the song to overtake danceclubs around the world but this time around, she is letting a few remixers work their magic on her song with will.i.am It Should Be Easy in order to transform the track into a club banger. BUT, altho It Should Be Easy is getting released as a remix package, it has not been selected as Britney‘s third single. Click below to learn more about these exciting new Britney remixes. More »

Listen: Britney Spears Duets With Sia On An Acoustic Version Of ‘Perfume’

Raw. Power.
Stripped Bare

A new version of Britney Spears‘s single Perfume has made its way to the Internets and it may be the most definitive version of the track yet. Previously we’ve heard the album version and a “more stripped down” version of the song included on Britney‘s album as a bonus track. Right now, we get to hear an acoustic version of the song that features Britney and the song’s writer Sia sharing vocals on the track. Britney‘s voice sounds most powerful in this version. Her vocal strength is highlighted as it is contrasted with Sia‘s vocals near the end of the song. I really love this version of the song, I think you may like it, too.

Early last week Shakira announced that she would be releasing a new single that features guest vocals by none other than Rihanna. A few days later, she hit us with the sexy cover art for the single Can’t Remember to Forget You. Today we get to hear the song in full. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this collaboration but the song sounds pretty much what you think a pop song from Shakira and Rihanna would sound like. It’s an upbeat and poppy number with a little Caribbean flare. Click the embed above to give it a listen then let me know what you think in the comments below. Does this sound like a hit song to you?

First Listen: Lorde Releases A New Single Titled ‘No Better’

Do try to tear yourself away from the new Beyoncé album for a sec ...

Lest you think that Beyoncé is the only artist dropping surprise new music on the world today, comes news that newcomer Lorde has also released a bit of new music as well. After the very successful and critically-acclaimed release of her debut album Pure Heroine, Ms. Lorde has dropped today a new single titled No Better. The song sounds like it would be right at home on her album so I’m guessing that maybe it’s an outtake song that just didn’t make the final cut. That said, I love it. Click below to hear No Better in full and see if you love it, too. More »
