Welcome to New Tunes Tues, where I tell you what newly released songs/albums/music videos etc require your attention immediately. There’s no better gift to give this Christmas than the gift of music (or something like that…), so here’s what’s new in the pop world in regards to Pia Mia, Justin Bieber, Mike Posner and more.
Pia Mia, “The Gift.” You know who’s getting in the holiday spirit? Pia Mia, who is gifting her fans (get it?) with a free download of her brand new EP this week. If you have 42 minutes to spare, listen to the entire EP below or just download it on iTunes because, again, it’s free. No harm no foul.
Candice Glover, “Cried.” You guys, this girl can sing. Duh, because she won American Idol season 12, but still, can we talk about how vocally amazing and just all-around inspiring Candice’s new music video is? Makes you look at breakups and heartache in a whole new way.
Justin Bieber ft. Lil Wayne, “Backpack.” Justin released Journals on Sunday at midnight, his album that includes all the songs he’s been releasing on #MusicMondays since this summer. Many of the songs, thus, have been heard before, but this new one ft. Lil Wayne is amazing. I can already envision this music video as ET-inspired:
Mike Posner ft. Big Sean, “Top Of The World.” I’m kind of obsessed with this new collab from Justin Bieber‘s BFF and Naya Rivera‘s fiance, mainly because the song is catchy and the video features Mike Posner’s parents and a cameo from actress Cassie Scerbo. Whaaaa?
Kendrick Lamar and Eddie Peake, “Sing About Me” Part 1. Remember when we all thought that Pharrell’s music video for “Happy,” which is literally 24 hours long, was so innovative? Now Kendrick Lamar and his friend Eddie Peake are doing something even cooler—a two part music video that’s like a mini movie. Part 2 comes out in January, but here’s part 1, which is hardcore giving me 90’s Eminem vibes:
