After her 2018 exquisite album, The Color of You, Alina Baraz is back in 2020 with a new album releasing on May 5th. The album titled, It Was Divine is bound to be another collection of high-shined musical diamonds.
The songstress just released her latest single titled “Morocco” where she details the sensual parts of a steamy romance. A beachy backdrop places sultry imagery within the single – making it ready for summer 2020. Baraz sweetly sings, “my favorite view is me covered in you, nothing but my perfume, oh I love the taste of you.” Her voice is angelic as always as every note swiftly glides out of her lips like it was meant to leave all along.
A soothing backbeat and elevated chimes make “Morocco” even more lush and romantic – something Baraz is an expert on (listen to recent single “Trust”). 6LACK hops onto the track for a thicker R&B sound as his voice expertly fits into Baraz’s like a final puzzle piece.
Cardi B: Fresh off her best year yet, this Bronx native is ready to make 2018 her lil b***h. Her first single, “Bodak Yellow” sparked a nationwide sing a long – breaking records along the way. Her latest explosive single is “Bartier Cardi”; a slamming rap tune ready to shatter more records. Cardi’s been working hard to make her first studio album a smash.
BORNS: The alt/pop singer just announced his new album, Blue Madonna will be out January 12. Known for his hit, “Electric Love”, Garrett has a lot of musical ground to cover with this new album. Latest single, “I Don’t Want U Back” shows his soprano-like vocals thrown against an electronic pop background like we’ve seen on previous tracks; “American Money” and “Electric Love”. Madonna is bound to be as colorful as ever.
Ashe: Fresh off a tour with EDM rising stars; Louis the Child, Ashe is ready to take over the pop pool. Her debut album is due in 2018. She recently told Pop Crush the album “is a total study of the human condition and relationships. I’ve struggled with self-doubt and depression and [these projects] are like a reflection of myself and how I look at the world. It’s going to be tight.” Her single, “Used To It” sets the scene for what we can expect from the singer this year – fun pop tunes with real meaning.
Alina Baraz: The sultry songstress has been teasing fans for what feels like forever. She just recently released her first music video, “Buzzin”, which is her third single this year, ahead of her first solo album due in 2018. Baraz has an enticing musical quality about her – angelic vocals with R&B basslines. A debut album will give the fans exactly what they’ve wanted for a very long time.
Camila Cabello: After a huge public split from one of the biggest girl groups in pop music, Camila is ready to stand on her own as an artist. She originally wanted to name the album The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving but then changed her mind. “I decided to call [the album] by my name, because this is where this chapter in my life ended” she told Pop Crush. Releasing an array of singles this year proved Camila isn’t limiting herself to one sound. There’s no doubt, this album will top the charts within seconds.
If you’re an Alina fan, you know everything she creates is pure magic. A voice that mimics Earth’s peaceful elements. The music that follows serves as your dream escape. Put Alina on and zone out.
Her new single, “Electric” is just that. She sings with ease, “Kiss me, we’re a fire, babe, love me, take me to outer space.” As usual, the beat is slow and rhythmic, taking cues from her debut joint album with Galimatias, titled Urban Flora. R&B newcomer, Khalid chimes in on the second verse. The Texas native and Tinkerbell vixen are the equivalent of eachother. Both confident in their wavey sound and relaxed vocals. Verses hosting a boy-girl back and forth further illustrates the chemistry in the song.
Baraz is the future of soul/R&B, making each song its own masterpiece. She just announced her tour “Let’s Get Lost” starting in March. A full length album is on the horizon, so get ready.
