We are back with another round of ‘Fresh Music Friday’. 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 Shawn Mendes, Fifth Harmony, The Weeknd and more!
1.) Shawn Mendes – “Mercy”
Oh man, Shawn is getting pretty serious about the girl he is singing about in this week’s “Mercy” music video! The song is off Shawn’s brand new album Illuminate which also came out TODAY! In this video, Shawn finds himself trapped in a car quickly filling with water and nearly drowned. Have you guys seen it? Be sure to tweet us your thoughts!
2.) The Weeknd- “Starboy”
The Weeknd has been quite busy lately with the reveal of his new haircut, new single featuring Daft Punk “Starboy” AND he announced the release date of his next album to be on November 26th! This song is a bit different to his previous hits, however fans are definitely enjoying his new sound, “Starboy” is already a huge hit all over the radio!
3.) Fifth Harmony – “That’s My Girl”
Not going to lie, I was a bit confused what the storyline behind the video was at first. However the backdrop and vibe of this video reminded me a lot of Destiny’s Child “Survivor”. The girls appear to be the superheroes of the day in this post-disaster scene, while looking flawless as always! If you were at their show this summer, you would remember it was their opening song!
That’s it for this week’s Fresh Music Friday picks! I hope you guys have a great weekend and if we’ve missed any songs that you think we should have included be sure to send us a tweet @bestfan.
