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 Becky G, Olly Murs, JoJo and more!
1.) Becky G – “Mangu”
Becky G released her latest video Mangu this week, which continues the story from last month’s release of “Sola“. In the video, Becky saves a girl from her abusive ex- boyfriend when she sees them at a diner together. The girls escape and drive off (with his keys) and their adventure begins! They find a few more friends to join them on their road trip and end up all over the place including camping out in a dessert. Becky has another exciting project coming up- her first movie role in the upcoming Power Rangers movie scheduled to be released March 2017!
2.) Olly Murs – “Grow Up”
This video is so adorable, literally the cutest kids ever are in Olly’s newest music video for Grow Up. These kids play the various roles you would find on any movie set- director, videographer, producer, stylist, etc. Loved how confidently they played their roles, and of course their stylish outfits! This mark’s the second single off Olly’s upcoming album titled “24Hrs” which comes out next month.
3.) Camilla Cabello – “Bad Things” ft. Machine Gun Kelly
19 year old Camilla steps away from Fifth Harmony yet again for an unexpected collab with Machine Gun Kelly this week. Although we are happy she is enjoying other musical projects, we really hope it’s just a side project- we love Fifth Harmony too much to see them break up. What did you guys think of the new song?
4.) JoJo New Album “Mad Love”
Our girl JoJo’s new album is out today!! Her first full length album in 10 years! After facing a few setbacks with her former label, JoJo’s new album is finally here. Mad Love includes collabs with Canadian sweetheart Alessia Cara on “I Can Only” as well as Bronx rapper Remmy Mae for “FAB”. She also recently released a video for “Music” showing footage of baby JoJo and she mentions her father who recently past away singing “Went on the road to make my daddy proud/ But I lost him and then I sang to the crowd/ My only hope is that he’s looking down/ Thinking: ‘Oh my God, my daughter’s doing it now .” The track definetely pulled on our heart strings. JoJo’s album is available on iTunes here.
Since there are so many good releases this week, here are the rest of our favourite listed below:
5.) Nick Jonas – “Voodoo”
6.) DNCE – “Body Moves”
7.) Carrie Underwood – “Dirty Laundry”
8.) The Weeknd – “False Alarm”
9.) Maroon 5 – “Don’t Wanna Know”
