Boat rides, backyard BBQ’s, late nights with friends, long car rides. Welcome to summer! Let these artists help you enjoy the sunshine and good times.
The coolest brother-sister duo out there. These two are taking the electro-pop scene by storm. Their new album, Conscious made waves on iTunes the day it came out, and for good reason. Heavy synths and addicting drum beats line every song as Georgia’s vocals remain as heavenly as ever. They can make you dance on a boat or make out under the stars.
That’s right. The man is back at it again with some HOT jamz for those summer days. The R&B/hip-hop King released the Diplo-produced melancholy “Crash” and the straight up saucy, “No Limit” featuring newcomer Young Thug. Both show Usher’s range of musical talent that we’ve been missing for what feels like forever.

Their new album, Love You To Death will put you back into a pop trance you haven’t been in for quite some time. 80’s synths and catchy lyrics are scattered through every track. The opening song, “That Girl” gives us a glimpse into what the rest of the album will be; a pretty/emotional/fun look at love. These two are far from the train track thud of 2007’s “Back In Your Head.”
There’s no doubt that NJ is at the top of his game in 2016. He’s currently on a mega-tour with pop sensation and BFF, Demi Lovato, and just released one of his most honest and experimental albums to date, Last Year Was Complicated. This album has it all, the sappy songs (listen to the emotionally charged “Chainsaw”), some pop/dance anthems (the sizzling “Bacon” feat. Ty Dolla $ign and the sultry “Under You”), and some R&B feelers (check out the beautifully layered “Comfortable”) His falsetto is better than ever, and so is his musicality. Jonas is everything pop music needs at the moment.
