Listen: Rihanna Teases New Music From #R8 On Instagram

"This whisky got me feelin' pretty"

Rihanna posted a couple of short clips of video on her official Instagram profile that includes new music that may be intended for her upcoming new album. Rihanna doesn’t come right out and say that the music heard in the videos below will be included on her new album (which will be executive produced by Kanye West) but her captions do make it sound likely. This taste of new music is vastly different from her new single FourFiveSeconds as well as her new song Towards the Sun, which is featured in her new Dreamworks animated film Home. Click below to hear this new song, possibly titled Higher, which may or may not be featured on her upcoming new album due out hopefully soon. More »

First Listen: Here Is Carly Rae Jepsen’s New Single ‘I Really Like You’

I really, really, really, really, really, REALLY love it!

Yesterday we got to check out the cover art for Carly Rae Jepsen‘s new single I Really Like You, the first from her forthcoming new album. As you may recall, we learned yesterday that the song will be released tomorrow on March 2. WELL, as luck would have it, the song has leaked a bit early and is available for your listening pleasure below. I commented yesterday that if this new song is half as infectious as her big hit Call Me Maybe still is, then we are in trouble … folks, we’re in trouble. I really, really, REALLY love this new song and I think you will, too. Have a listen. More »

First Listen: Kelly Clarkson Releases A New Song Titled ‘Tightrope’

"How did we get so tangled?"
"When did it get so hard to breathe?"

The Kelly Clarkson new song party continues today with the release of a new balled titled Tightrope. Thus far, Kelly has released a number of songs from her upcoming new album Piece By Piece (Let Your Tears Fall, Take You High, Run Run Run, Piece By Piece, Invincible, Heartbeat Song) and I’ve remarked that the songs just keep getting better and better with each new release. Today is no exception … Tightrope is a beautiful song both in lyrical content and in performance style. Kelly has such an amazing ability to sing fun, upbeat pop songs as well as slow, painfully beautiful ballads. Ugh. I love her so much. Thus far, I’m giving each new song a listen or two and then I’m holding off on repeat listens so that I can take in the entire album in full when it is released next week. Click above to hear Tightrope and then click below to read the lyrics to the song. More »

First Listen: Jennifer Lopez Has Released A New Song Titled ‘Feel The Light’

Lyric Video
From the animated film 'Home'

Remember the new Rihanna song that we heard a couple of days ago, titled Towards The Sun from the upcoming Dreamworks animated film Home? Well, it turns out that fellow pop star Jennifer Lopez also has a song on the Home motion picture soundtrack. J. Lo‘s song is titled Feel The Light and you can hear it in full in the lyric video embedded above. The song is pretty good and, as you can hear, J. Lo sings the Hell out of it. With new music by Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez on the soundtrack, it sounds like Home might turn out to be a pretty decent movie. Does this movie look like something you’d like to see? As for this J. Lo song, do you like?

First Listen: Kelly Clarkson & John Legend Release Their New Duet ‘Run Run Run’

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
"I wonder how your body tastes"

Yesterday we got to hear Kelly Clarkson‘s new album title song Piece By Piece one day after we heard her Sia-penned balled Invincible (which were both released after Kelly dropped her first single Heartbeat Song last month). Today we get to hear her ballad duet with John Legend titled Run Run Run. You may recall that Kelly confessed that she cannot seem to get anyone to collaborate on new music with her, except for John Legend. You may also recall that we learned yesterday that Kelly intends to release a new song each day leading up to the release of her album Piece By Piece next week. Run Run Run is a beautiful song originally recorded by Tokio Hotel, which you can hear for yourself in the embed above. I’m so glad that John decided to collaborate with Kelly because they sound amazing together on this new track. Do you love, love love?
