So, we’ve reached lucky number seven in the Fresh Music Roundup series, eh? Well let’s hope today’s songs are extra special! Keep reading to hear the ripest, juiciest and freshest songs out right now. They’re ready to pick and unwrap below.
Natalie La Rose (ft. Fetty Wap) – All Around the World
After pining to dance with ‘Somebody’, Natalie La Rose is back, as this time she wants to make love ‘All Around the World’, after finding a mysterious man’s passport on the floor. This song enters Dance and EDM territory, and is maybe a couple years too late, but with the addition of Rap’s latest obsession, Fetty Wap, I’m sure the song will do alright.
Janet Jackson (ft. J Cole ) – No Sleeep
I know I just included this song on the last edition of Fresh Music Roundup, but Janet is back with a brand new version of the song featuring J Cole, as well new visuals for the track. I think J Cole adds some needed energy to the track and should hopefully be able to defibrillate the song back up the charts.
Demi Lovato – Cool For the Summer
We’ve seen this story play out time and time again; female Disney stars reemerging with a ‘shocking’ ‘new’ ‘edgier’ image, which basically means they swear in their songs, they may smoke in their videos, they wear considerably less clothing and they have a new rebellious attitude (see: Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, Selena Gomez etc). Demi joins the pack with her latest release, with visuals directed by Hannah Lux Davis, who has also worked with Ariana Grande and Jessie J, who coincidentally, people are saying this song sounds suspiciously similar to (see: Domino by Jessie J)
Pharrell Williams – Freedom
Pharrell has been hit and miss with his music lately, in my eyes (and ears) and when I first heard this song a while back, it didn’t do anything for me, however, seeing this song in a visual format it is really powerful and engaging, if not a bit short. At least radio will have no excuse to cut it down.
