Welcome to New Tunes Tues, where we tell you what newly released songs/albums/music videos etc require your attention immediately. Chris Brown seems to finally have moved on from RiRi (musically, at least), plus the official FIFA World Cup gets the music video treatment! Take a listen right here:
Chris Brown ft. Usher and Rick Ross, “New Flame.” Chris Brown’s most recent single before “New Flame” was “Loyal,” about how girls cheat on him and stuff. This one’s a more appropriate, calmer ballad where Breezy, Ursher and Rozay casually sing about hooking up with a new chick. Hey, this is probably the song Rihanna’s been waiting for since 2009, know what I mean?
Santana ft. Wyclef Jean and Avicii, “We Will Find a Way.” This party anthem is the official song of the 2014 FIFA world Cup—no offense, JLO and Pitbull—and the video perfectly reflects the Brazilian spirit and unifying nature of the worldwide event. It was shot in Brazil, after all. Watch here:
Eminem and Busta Rhymes, “Calm Down.” Ok, this song is not for the faint of heart. There’s a lot of foul-language and loud noises. But it’s a pretty epic collab, mainly because the background music is stolen from House of Pain’s “Jump Around.” Hear it now?
Becky G, “Shower.” Of course Becky G’s video for this song would be of her singing in the shower. It’s just so fun and so summery, you know? PS: The budding pop star will be performing on select stops on Katy Perry’s Prismatic tour this summer, so go get yourself some tix!
Francesco Yates, “Call.” If Justin Timberlake is already a fan and Pharrell is producing your debut album, that probably makes you’re a pretty awesome artist. This 18-year-old Canadian singer/songwriter’s full length album is on its way, but first listen to his debut single, “Call,” right here:
