March 2018 saw the return of Shawn Mendes, who brought us not just one, but two brand new singles, both of which vary greatly in style but have equally brilliant Feel-Good Friday vibes. We just couldn’t decide which one to share, so figured, why not share both?!

‘In My Blood’ is a (pop)-rock ballad that transcends from a soft, despairing beginning into a thunderous, passionate anthem by the very first chorus and continues to soar from there. This track shows off just how incredible Mendes’ vocals are with their raspy tones that show just how intensely meaningful this song is.

Meanwhile, ‘Lost In Japan’ is a melting pot of contemporary funk with R&B and pop flavours too; it’s very reminiscent of something by Justin Timberlake. This track is also passionate but in a very different way; lyrically the song expresses how Mendes would happily travel the globe just to be close to his lover, all of which sits atop a heavy bassline and groovy guitar rhythms.

Sadly, no music videos have been released as yet, but as soon as they do, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

What are your thoughts of Shawn Mendes’ two new singles? Are you as much of a fan as us? Have you got a #FeelGoodFriday track to recommend us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or via our social media.

It’s been nearly 3 years since Justin Timberlake released new music, but last week was when the day came for a new song from him!

Released as the lead song from the upcoming Dreamworks Animation film, ‘Trolls’, it has definitely got that feel-good factor! It’s got the perfect combination of dance-pop and funk mixed with a touch of old-school disco.

Critics have been loving this song, as have fans and it’s clear to see why – I really can’t get enough of it! Turn your volume to 11 and dance the hell out of it!

Are you a JT fan? Do you like this new sound? Would you like to hear more of this style from him? Please share your #FeelGoodFriday songs with us too.

#WildCardWednesday: Justin Timberlake – ‘Gimme What I Don’t Know (I Want)’

JT Banner

This song is my Wild-Card for the week. Why? Well, I recently re:DISCOVERED my love of Justin Timberlake’s vocals and musical style.

The song is the first track on Timberlake’s most recent album, ‘The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2’. 2013 saw the return of Timberlake, after 7 years away from music, with the release of not one, but TWO albums.

This track has a lot to offer; fantastic harmonies, quality Timbaland production, quirky musical elements and sounds which bring the track to life, and jungle-like beats.

There’s something which gives me a thrill about singing the first line of the chorus, loudly in the car; “Now take me to your jungle, I’m not afraid”.

Crank up the volume and enjoy this gem!

What’s your Wild-Card? I’m excited to hear what interesting tracks people are listening to right now!
