Welcome to New Tunes Tues, where we tell you what newly released songs/albums/music videos etc require your attention immediately. Keep scrolling to listen to this week’s must-know new music from Mariah Carey, Cody Simpson and more.
Mariah Carey, “You’re Mine.” The announcement came this morning of Mariah’s newest single, “You’re Mine,” and her subsequent new album (dropping May 6th). This song is appropriately timed to Valentine’s Day and it brings us back to old school MC. Thoughts?
Hot Chelle Rae, “Don’t Say Goodnight.” These guys have been pretty famous since their song, “Tonight, Tonight,” blew up in 2011, but I think 2014 might be 2.0 for these guys. This song is just as catchy and gives off a legit Travie McCoy vibe.
Cody Simpson, “Love.” Cody wanted to release a romantic video just in time for Valentine’s Day, and that he did! Here’s Cody and Ziggy Marley, who sings a verse on the song, just hanging on the beach, strummin’ guitars and chillin’. PS: Read our exclusive interview with Cody Simpson about the video and his Valentine’s Day plans for his girlfriend right HERE!
Lily Allen, “L8 CMMR”. Well, the new Girls soundtrack, out today, is shaping up to be pretty awesome. Last week the internet got wind of Miguel‘s song on the soundtrack, and this week Lily Allen‘s contribution is getting the attention. I couldn’t tell you what those numbers and letters in the title stand for but I’m into the song regardless.
Enrique Iglesias ft. Pitbull, “I’m a Freak.” No need to wrack your brain trying to figure out what a party would look like with Enrique and Pitbull as guests. This video is the guys doing just that and it’s just as fun as the song is, which we actually talked about a few weeks ago. Is this perhaps your favorite Pitbull collaboration ever?
