"I know I need to feel released"
A few days ago we learned the really great news that Chvrches have set September 20 as the release date for their sophomore album, titled Every Open Eye. Today we get to hear the first single from the new album in full. Chvrches have released a lyric video for the new single, Leave A Trace, which you can watch above. The song, I’m happy to hear, is very much in vein with the sound that Chvrches have become famous for. I absolutely LOVE the sweet, poppy, electronic music that the Scottish group crafts so expertly. If Leave A Trace is a sign of what we can expect when Every Open Eye is released, then we are in for a treat. Have a listen, see what you think. It’s a really great song, yeah?

"I just wanna look good for you, good for you, uh-huh"
For a few weeks now, Selena Gomez has been hinting that she would be releasing a new single, just in time for the summer music season. Today we get our first listen of Selena‘s new single, Good For You, which features a guest rap performance by A$AP Rocky. The song is a slower jam, which is nice, but as always, I was hoping for a more upbeat, poppier dance track. The song is OK but I can’t say that I’m really feeling it. The lyrical content, which is meant to be a sweet love song for her man, does’t really jibe with me.

Back to the '90s
Over the weekend, we got to see the cover art for Mariah Carey‘s new single Infinity, the only new song included on her upcoming greatest hits album #1 to Infinity. At the stroke of midnight last night, Mimi released Infinity for download on iTunes and made the song available for listening online with the release of the lyric video embedded above. As you can see and hear, this song appears to be TOTALLY about her soon-to-be ex-husband Nick Cannon … and how he lost the greatest thing he ever had when he messed up his marriage with Mariah. The song is really, really good. It has a distinctly ’90s sound to it, which is where Mariah Carey is strongest. This song has a very good shot at becoming Mimi‘s next #1 song. Have a listen, see what you think.

"Turn the lights down low / And kiss me in the dark"
After we got a tiny taste of the song back in March, Hilary Duff released the full audio for her infectious new single Sparks earlier this month. Today we get to see the just-released lyric video for Sparks and altho it’s not a particularly impressive lyric vid, I am so crazy about the song that I am happy to feature it again. Sparks has been one of my fave new songs since it was released a few weeks ago and it fits in nicely in my running playlist. I’m hoping that the music video for Sparks will be a bit more exciting than this lyric vid but even if not, I’ll still be desperately in lurve with the song nonetheless.
The first single from 'Bush'
Last month we learned that Snoop Dogg is coming at us with a new album, executive produced by Pharrell, titled Bush with a first single titled Peaches N Cream. Today we get to hear Peaches N Cream in full with the release of the lyric video embedded above. As you can hear, Peaches is an ode the ladies with a thicker posterior and it features guest vocals by Charlie Wilson. The song deffo has a Pharrell flavor to it so, yeah, it’s pretty smooth. Do you like?
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?
