This is the first new music from DNCE since their debut album in 2016 and it features guest vocals from serial collaborator, Nicki Minaj.

The song has sun-kissed guitar riffs and bass licks throughout; it’s a summery track oozing with gang vocals and beautiful harmonies. The lyrics are saucy and the artwork is 60s in style; reinforcing that it’s a track all about free love. Surely this is the signs of a new album on the horizon?!

No official video has been released yet but undoubtedly one will emerge soon and I’m sure it’ll be fun-filled if the band’s previous releases are anything to go by.

*UPDATE* The official video has now been released and it’s just as tongue-in-cheek, fun-filled and raunchy as I expected. I’m pleased to see Nicki Minaj featured in the video too – not just stylised in the background, like sometimes happens to featured artists and rappers.

What are your thoughts of the band’s new direction? Got any #FeelGoodFriday tunes for us to check out? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or hit us up via our social media.

We’ve featured Matoma before (quite recently) but he’s back with one hell of an upbeat belter; this time featuring the legendary Sean Paul, plus the awesome and talented KStewart.

The Norwegian tropical house producer (aka Tom Stræte Lagergren) has now released a string of singles and remixes, and must be gearing up to drop an album soon, but in the meantime, this single has got me anticipating his future releases and collaborations! I mean, Sean Paul is a pretty big collaborator to have on board and KStewart is an incredible, upcoming songstress.

What do you think of this great song? Got you in the mood for summer? Have you got any similar #FeelGoodFriday tracks for us? Please share your thoughts and song suggestions in a comment below or via our social media accounts.

Hailee Steinfield – ‘Love Myself’

Hailee Steinfield is know for being an actress, model and now singer; she has her fingers in many pies…so to speak!

Most notably, she appeared in Pitch Perfect 2 during which she covered ‘Flashlight’ and has since been signed by Republic Records.

Her debut EP, ‘HAIZ’, was released in November 2015 and this song, ‘Love Myself’, preceded it, back in August this year, however it failed to reach the Top 40 here in the UK.

I have posted this track today as I think it’s a bit different, and she came to my attention as her EP was recently released. I checked it out, and this song stood out for me, so enjoy!


‘Love Myself’ is on iTunes for downloading now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/love-myself-single/id1022992339



Craig David x Big Narstie – ‘When The Bassline Drops’

Craig David (aka Craaaaaig David) is back!

Teaming up with Big Narstie after a collaboration on a Radio 1Xtra, during which Craig David remixed ‘Fill Me In‘ over the ‘Where Are Ü Now‘ beat, the pair have now entered the studio to record this latest track, ‘When The Bassline Drops’.

It’s the first new music release from Craig David in years and sees the guy return to his garage origins; his ‘Rewind‘ days!

It’s an epic new song and should definitely be appreciated for a triumphant return to the garage scene!


‘When The Bassline Drops’ is out now on iTunes; show your support and buy a copy! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/when-the-bassline-drops/id1058841050?i=1058841055

#Two4Tunesday: Robin Thicke – ‘Back Together’ & Pia Mia – ‘Do It Again’

Robin Thicke & Pia Mia are our featured artists for this week’s #Two4Tunesday and they’ve got some help from a few friends too!

Robin Thicke Banner

Hip-thrusting, line-blurring Robin Thicke is our first song for this Tuesday and he’s back with another potentially huge hit, featuring guest vocals from Nicki Minaj.

After the huge success of ‘Blurred Lines’, he’s got a tough personal record to beat but this catchy number could well see him back up at the top of the charts again.

Pia Mia Banner

Pia Mia is definitely one to watch – her unique blend of pop, R&B and hip hop is bound to be a hit with many! This song has particularly been gathering interest as it’s a collaboration with both Chris Brown and Tyga.

I’m definitely looking forward to hearing what else this singer has to offer in the near future, with an album due out shortly.
