Lead stallion Matty Healy drowns his sorrows in alcohol as he deals with a broken relationship. “Else” is more internally focused than you think, which the video illustrates near the end. The video is a beautiful neon homage to the emotional beauty found in this song.
“Bad Intentions ft. Migos” – Niykee Heaton
Two years later and Niykee finally gives fans a saucy remix to her R&B hit, “Bad Intentions” accompanied by a badass Bonnie & Clyde-esque video. Flaunting her infamous tan and toned curves, Heaton throws some slo-mo heat for a solid four and a half minutes.
“Exchange” – Bryson Tiller
Memories of a couple in love play in Tiller’s head as he realizes “this what happen when I think bout chu.” Their story begins to unfold and explain itself. He makes her a scrap book and is dedicated on getting her back, will it work?
“All In My Head (Flex) feat. Fetty Wap” – Fifth Harmony
WOAH. That’s the first word I have to say after watching this video. First of all: one-pieces are back. Second: I need a vacation. Third: How can you not dance to this song? These girls have the “pop music video” formula NAILED.
“Crash” – Usher
He dances his way into our hearts once again. Performing a smooth routine to every crooning word, he could make the coldest man weak in the knees. Body art takes you on an emotional journey that keeps you staring, wanting more.
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.
Tegan & Sara
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.
