Happy Friday BestFans! We have another round of our favorite, ‘Fresh Music Fridays’. This is where our host, Sharon Bhella shares her personal stand-out picks of the week. This week, Sharon gives us some insight into new music releases from Demi Lovato, Fifth Harmony, Carly Rae Jepsen and much more!
Watch the video below:
1.) Demi Lovato – “Stone Cold”
Demi released her most emotional video yet this week for her latest single “Stone Cold” off her album Confident. The video was filmed in beautiful Park City, Utah in the middle of a snowy mountain which Demi told ET Canada “It’s like my getaway, so being able to go shoot this video in a place where I’m already comfortable, where I love it there, it was awesome.”. Inspired from her own pain and heartbreak you can really see Demi put her whole heart into this song. She has such an amazing voice and we can’t wait to see her on tour with Nick Jonas this summer!
2.) Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Leon Bridges – “Kevin”
This powerful song was written as a tribute to Macklemore’s friend who passed away from an overdose. Although I usually prefer to listen to more upbeat music, I was impressed at how well this video was done. The song talks heavily about drugs and addiction and is filmed completely in black in white at an abandoned hospital.Their new album is also released today titled “This Unruly Mess I’ve Made”.
3.) The Summer Set – “Missin’ You”
Of course I had to include this song because I love The Summer Set, but in all honesty this song is so good! It’s the band’s second single off their upcoming album “Stories For Monday” which will be out on April 1st. The song has an upbeat feel good vibe with the message of not missing someone after a breakup and moving on becoming better than ever. In the video you can see the band jamming out with an artsy set in the background ranging from waterfalls, sunsets, and lots of bright colourful lights. You can even see John Gomez dancing with a mannequin- these guys always seem to have fun in their videos. We can’t wait for their Toronto show on May 31st at The Mod Club. Be sure to grab your tickets here!
4.) Fifth Harmony – “Work From Home”
Harmonizers had a lovely surprise this week when the girls of Fifth Harmony tweeted some very exciting news! A new music video and a release date for their upcoming album! The album will be released on May 20th and has been titled “7/27” in celebration of when the group first formed. Tweet us and let us know what you think of this new video!
5.) Carly Rae Jepsen – “Everywhere You Look”
This is an exciting day for Full House fans everywhere as today is the day Netflix premiers their new series “Fuller House”. To celebrate the sequel series, Carly Rae Jepsen (who is also a huge Full House fan) collaborated with Jesse Frederick to recreate a modern version of the theme song for the Netflix show. Which version do you guys like better? The original or Carly’s new rendition? Tweet us what you think @BestFan!
And that’s it for our Fresh Music Friday picks this week, hope you guys are enjoying this week’s releases as much as we are! And if you heard a new song that you love, let us know so we can add it to our weekend playlists!
