Love Is Back – Celeste
R&B singer, Celeste, brings us a hopeful track that’s guaranteed to get your new year started off with a smile. As one of the rising stars of Britain’s flourishing music scene, Celeste has established herself as an artist that is smooth, original, and worth keeping an eye on as she continues her musical journey into 2021. On this track, Celeste uses her strong voice and a groovy backing beat to create an amazing track that is reminiscent of Amy Winehouse and many others.
unimpressed – Magsy
What more can we say about this rising superstar? Magsy continues to blow us away with his deeply personal tracks that evoke true emotion and understanding in his listeners. For more about “unimpressed,” check out our previous blog post!
You Need Me – Black Coffee (Ft. Maxine Ashley & Sun-El Musician)
Black Coffee has given us a wonderful New Years gift with this new track “You Need Me” featuring the excellent Maxine Ashley & Sun-El Musician. This laid back house track is a perfect meditative track to throw on in the car or at sunset.
Real Groove (Studio 2054 Remix) – Kylie Minogue & Dua Lipa
Kylie Minogue released a remix for our favorite track off of her 2020 album DISCO. On the Studio 2054 remix, Kylie recruits one of our favorite pop stars who dominated this past year, Dua Lipa. This remix adds some fun grooving aspects to the song which makes it fun and great to start off the new year.
Anyone – Justin Bieber
We’ve been recently impressed by Justin Bieber’s newest tracks that seem to be from a more heartfelt place and away from the cheesy yet catchy likes of “Yummy.” On his new track, “Anyone,” the biebs sings beautifully about his wife, and this track is a perfect track for couples & lovers around the world.
Back In Time – Martin Ikin
Rising house artist, Martin Ikin, has released a brand new banger that’ll get you dancing. This track, titled “Back In Time,” is a bit dark, but tons of fun and a great way to dance into the new year.
Words – Barry Gibb & Dolly Parton
Barry Gibb, the famous co-founder of the Bee Gees, teams up with American sweetheart Dolly Parton for a nice collaboration that feels like it could be from back in the 70s. Both musicians still have a clear knack for songwriting and singing even at their older ages.
Singles A Rooster Says – Brandi Carlile
Americana Rock superstar Brandi Carlile brings us a couple of new tracks that definitely rock. The two tracks are really awesome covers of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” & “Searching With My Good Eye Closed.” Both are definitely worth a listen.
