Mabel – Crying On The Dance Floor
This week, Polydor’s Mabel dropped “Crying On The Dance Floor.” It’s fun, empowering, and a nice tune to go along with “Let Love Go” (w/ Lil Tecca), “Overthinking” (w/ 24kGoldn), and more in anticipation of her new project.
Her new album, About Last Night, is out now. Check out the new Stargate-produced single and project in full.
Elli Moore – Bathing Suit
Elli Moore follows up her “Romeo” single with Scott Bruzenak-produced “Bathing Suit.” It’s still summer, so grab some sun and play this one.
5 Seconds of Summer – BLENDER
5 Seconds of Summer drops an emotional Pop track called “Blender.” It has a calm build through the first verse but gets intense in the pre-hook.
The new single is expected to be a part of the band’s upcoming album 5SOS5 which is set to release on September 23. It currently lives on an EP with “Me Myself & I,” “COMPLETE MESS,” and “Take My Hand.”
Stream the Peter Thomas-produced “Blender” today.
Nina Nesbitt – No Time (For My Life To Suck)
Nina Nesbitt’s “No Time (For My Life To Suck)” is a great song for the end of your work week. She’s cutting out anything that makes her life worse than it can be. Produced by Elvira Anderfjärd, it’s about urgency and freedom. Push the negativity away and make the life you want.
Listen to “No Time” along with the EP including songs “Pressure Makes Diamonds,” “Dinner Table,” and “When You Lose Someone.”
Her upcoming album has 12 tracks and is set to be released on September 2, 2022.
Grant Knoche – ICARUS
Grant Knoche drops his self-produced “ICARUS.” I’m loving the tempo and energy he created here.
It’s a song about love and pain all mixed together. “I wanna fly too close to the sun / I could die just thinking of us / Heaven isn’t high enough / So, I’ll burn up in your touch”, he sings.
P!nk – Irrelevant
Pink is back with her protest-worthy single, “Irrelevant.” The “kids are not alright” and she isn’t afraid to stand up for them.
She collaborates with Grammy-winning producer/songwriter Ian Fitchuk on this release.
Pink explains “As a woman with an opinion and the fearlessness to voice that opinion, it gets very tiring when the only retort is to tell me how irrelevant I am. I am relevant because I exist, and because I am a human being. No one is irrelevant. And no one can take away my voice.”
Proceeds from the song will be donated to former first lady Michelle Obama’s voting initiative When We All Vote. Stream “Irrelevant” below.
Bella Poarch – Dolls
Bella Poarch shares an action-packed video for her new song, “Dolls.” Directed by Andrew Donoho, the visuals include a whole fight scene with Grimes.
In a statement about the song, Bella said, “‘Dolls’ is all about self-empowerment and confidence.” She continued, “It’s a follow up to my song ‘Build a B*tch’ but it stands out on its own as well by being gentle but fierce, beautiful but deadly. The importance of helping one another while also not letting anyone make you feel weak or worthless.”
Her debut EP (also titled “Dolls”) will be out on August 12.
Demi Lovato – Substance
Demi Lovato has a strong Pop Punk single on her hands with “Substance.” This is the second song off their forthcoming eighth studio LP, Holy Fvck, out August 19.
“Substance” was written by Lovato, Oak, Keith Sorrells, Alex Niceforo, Laura Veltz, and Jordan Lutes, and produced by Oak, Sorrells, and Niceforo.
The Cody Critcheloe-directed video includes a cameo from Paris Hilton after a string of thematic scenes to enjoy throughout.
Additionally, Nita Strauss has officially joined Demi Lovato’s touring lineup, after the guitarist announced her departure from Alice Cooper’s band earlier this week.
Strauss performed Lovato’s new single “Substance” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. See the performance below.
