A lot of new music has been exploding onto the scene lately, so I’ve rounded up some of the most noteworthy tracks – and music videos – to check out this week:
‘REALiTi’ by Grimes
Grimes recently premiered REALiTi as an unreleased visual gift to the fans that attended the asian leg of her world tour. Recorded in 2013 and unable to be mastered, the song won’t be making the cut for the singer’s upcoming album. A sad reality since REALiTi is such good electro-pop.
‘Dancing With Myself’ by The Knocks
Electro duo, The Knocks, take their latest offering to the streets of New York City’s Chinatown District (where they live) to reveal themselves “in our element,” as band member B-Roc explained to PAPER. The tune will be featured on the group’s new EP coming out on April 7th.
‘Want To Want Me’ by Jason Derulo
Jason Derulo‘s latest effort marks a departure from his signature club-thumping sound. The Ian Kirkpatrick produced song was popular enough to become a trending topic on twitter, so it’s safe to assume the Talk Dirty singer has another hit on his hands.
‘Sugar (Remix) featuring Nicki Minaj’ by Maroon 5
Maroon 5‘s already great single gets a dose of Nicki Minaj for extra sweet results.
‘This Side’ by A$AP Ferg
A$AP Ferg is on a song-releasing roll that continues with the latest visuals from 2014’s Ferg Forever mixtape, the YG assisted This Side.
‘I Bet’ by Ciara
The latest Ciara single has been out since January, but the visuals have just arrived, featuring the 1, 2 Step singer looking fierce and fabulous as ever. Those dance moves though…
‘Don’t Make Me Wait (Remix) featuring T.I.’ by LeToya Luckett
LeToya Luckett (of the original Destiny’s Child lineup) is back with an updated offering from her forthcoming album Until Then. The smooth R&B banger, which originally premiered at the end of last year, now features rapper T.I.
‘I Really Like You’ by Carly Rae Jepsen
The catchy hit with an addictively repetitive chorus has already been featured on the site. Regardless, the music video has arrived and features an awkwardly random cameo from Tom Hanks and Justin Bieber. Just thought I’d share.
