The duo of last year’s beer pong anthem Pong Dance is back! This time Vigiland is taking over the repeat button on your Friday nights. With a very similar target audience to that of Pong Dance, their 2014 hit Shots and Squats has been their most successful hit to date.

 

Update May 11: Vigiland has now released the music video for Friday Night:

In Febuary, we posted Heavy ft. Kiiara; Linkin Park’s first single off their upcoming album One More Light. After that, Battle Symphony dropped in March. Now LP’s shaking things up again; enlisting Pusha T and Stomrzy for a new rock/rap collaboration that’s sure to please those old Fort Minor fans out there. English rapper Stormzy gives the song’s second half a bit of that Tinie Tempah feel. The new album’s due to drop May 19.

Oh Wonder surprised many with a new track last week called Ultralife. It’s their first track since their 2015 self-titled debut album and they haven’t missed a beat. They are classified as alt-pop and this track has some really cool melodies, organic percussion, synths and major key pianos that play together really well. They were a revelation in 2015 and we are hoping they continue to blow up in 2017!

 

Bleachers are back with their first song in awhile, called Don’t Take The Money. It will be the first single of their sophomore album to be released later this year. This track was written with Lorde, who also has backing vocals on the song. Bleachers is led by Jack Antonoff, who was part of the group Fun and helped write Lorde’s album Melodrama. This is a super catchy and fun song and we are excited for more Bleachers later this year.

 

I’ve been a big alt-J fan for awhile now, with their first album An Awesome Wave having so many great songs like Tessellate, Breezeblocks, Fitzpleasure, and Taro (my personal fav). Their follow up album This Is All Yours in 2014 was also solid but not as great as their debut album in my opinion. After over two years, we are finally hearing some new music from the British group. Their new song In Cold Blood features much of the same, with experimental sounds, funky beats and lyrics that really don’t make sense (?). But In Cold Blood is catchy and serves as a great first single for their upcoming 2017 album Relaxer due June 22

No stranger to cross-genre creation, Guetta has a new collaboration with Nick Minaj and brought in Lil Wayne as well to make it a Young Money duo. For both Guetta and Minaj being in two different genres of music, it’s kind of surprising but this is the fourth single they’ve released together. Previous singles being Where Them Girls At (2007), Turn Me On (2012), and Hey Mama (2015). This track will almost certainly lead to another Hot 100 entry for Guetta and Minaj. Minaj’s verses definitely remind me of her “Beez in the Trap” style rapping. While Lil Wayne only gets a single verse, heavily auto-tuned, reminding us of his hit Lollipop, it definitely leaves us wishing he had another verse on here.

After a cryptic Instagram on Thursday morning, Kendrick unleashed a brand new track last night titled The Heart Part 4. This is a continuation of the long-running The Heart series and is the first solo music we’ve heard from the rapper since 2016’s untitled unmastered. On the new track he takes shots at Donald Trump and proclaims himself the best rapper alive. At the end of the song, he hints that a new album could be dropping as early as April.

Check out the track before and let us know what you think.

Jason Derulo drops a banging new single called Swalla feature two rap stars in Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign. This song is expected to be on an upcoming Derulo project. Derulo stated on the Grammy’s red carpet that there’s “nothing that sounds like it” on the radio right now. Do you agree?

It’s definitely a unique sound, we are loving the beat and both guest features do a great job on the track.

The Chainsmokers have recruited Coldplay frontman Chris Martin for their newest single titled Something Just Like This. This song has just leaked online and looks like it will be from the Chainsmokers’ debut LP, Memories…Do Not Open. Can’t wait for this album and it’s a pretty great tune!

Check out the track below and let us know what you think!

After weeks (maybe months) of teasing, Linkin Park finally releases their debut single “Heavy” from their seventh studio album, One More Light. The new album will be released on May 19. The new single features guest vocals from Gold hitmaker Kiiara. The band has once again switched their style for the new album. Guest female vocals is something rare for LP, but this song has a great feel to it and is definitely a mainstream radio and pop friendly song, so it should be a huge hit. It’s a different sound, but we couldn’t be more excited for new music and a new album from Linkin Park!
