We are back with a new music roundup and this week there’s a real mixture of styles. Lethal Bizzle, Psy and The Vamps all appear and you can listen to their latest offerings below.
1. Lana Del Rey – Brooklyn Baby
Fans are desperate to hear tracks from Lana Del Rey’s upcoming album ‘Ultraviolence’ and their wish has come true, as the song ‘Brooklyn Baby’ is now streaming online. The song is typically Lana, with her reminiscing about the 70’s and crooning about her boyfriend. It’s a very mellow track with Jazz undertones and melodic guitar. Lana Del Rey’s new record ‘Ultraviolence’ will be released on June 16th and she will be performing at Glastonbury Festival on June 28th.
2. Psy featuring Snoop Dog – Hangover
It was always going to be difficult for Psy to top his smash hit ‘Gangnam Style,’ and he hasn’t managed it with his latest offering ‘Hangover.’ The South Korean star has teamed up with rap icon Snoop Dog for this song which is all about the side effects of drinking too much. What made ‘Gangnam Style’ so iconic was it’s entertaining video and dance routine, however, the video for ‘Hangover’ is underwhelming and unamusing. ‘Hangover’ is out now and Psy is reportedly preparing another big release for summer.
3. Nicole Sherzinger – Your Love
Former X Factor judge Nicole Sherzinger has returned to music and has unveiled her latest single ‘Your Love.’ The track is combination of pop and dance which is overlaid with erotic lyrics. The sexual theme to the song continues into the video that sees Nicole frolicking on a golden beach in several barely-there outfits. The song’s infectious chorus and summery vibe make it sure to be a success in the charts. ‘Your Love’ is out now and Nicole’s second studio album is expected to be released this year.
4. The Vamps ft Demi Lovato – Somebody To You
Britsh boy band The Vamps have partnered with their tour mate Demi Lovato for their latest single ‘Somebody To You.’ The upbeat track is fairly generic pop and it’s Demi’s verse that lifts the song with her cheerful vocals. The video unfortunately feels like a knock off from One Direction’s ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ with its beach setting and pretty girls pouting for the cameras. ‘Somebody To You’ is out now and the boys will be going on their first headline tour in September.
5. Lethal Bizzle ft. Cherri Voncelle – The Drop
Grime artist Lethal Bizzle is back in the charts this week with his single ‘The Drop’ which features singer Cherri Voncelle. Dutch producer Distortion is behind the tracks beat and singer/songwriter Cherri boosts the song with her catchy hook. ‘The Drop’ is out now and Lethal Bizzle is currently planning on releasing an album later this year.
