Welcome to New Tunes Tues, where I tell you what newly released songs/albums/music videos etc require your attention immediately. This week we’ve got a new ballad from the one and only Mariah, another sexy Miley Cyrus music video, a Bruno Mars remix and more…
Mariah Carey, “The Art of Letting Go.” Mariah’s been promising new music for a while now, but now, MC’s finally got something to show for it. The new Rodney Jerkins-produced ballad is off her upcoming album, and Mariah said she hopes people can relate to the song’s personal lyrics about heartbreak. Can you?
Justin Bieber, “All Bad.” JB latest new song, which is, if you’re counting, approximately his fifth release in five weeks, is probably the most emotionally charged yet. It’s rumored to be throwing shade at Taylor Swift for bad-mouthing Biebs to Selena Gomez when they were still together. Way harsh, Tay.
Lady Gaga, “Dope.” Since it’s #ARTPOP release week, it’d be weird if I didn’t include an ARTPOP song in New Tunes Tues. I decided to highlight “Dope,” which is the one Gaga’s been performing live left and right since it seems like “Applause” is totally old news. Also, the song is about loving someone more than loving the drug, so there’s that.
Future ft. Miley Cyrus and Mr. Hudson, “Real & True.” Last week came the official iTunes release of this song, but this week comes the music video, where Miley dresses as a naked, futuristic alien covered in glittery body paint. The usual.
Bruno Mars ft. R. Kelly and Pharrell, “Gorilla G-Mix.” Just when you thought Bruno’s songs couldn’t get more sexy, he hits the studio with R. Kelly and Pharrell to remix his album’s fourth single, “Gorilla.” The remix is complete with rap verses and actual monkey sounds. Take a listen:
