New Songs From Pink, Gwen Stefani & Christina Aguilera On Linda Perry-Penned Compilation


Here’s some great news for music-starved Christina Aguilera fans. Pop’s reclusive Lotus has a new song on the soundtrack of Served Like A Girl, an upcoming documentary about female war veterans. The album is comprised of unused Linda Perry songs (“Beautiful,” “Candyman” and “Lift Me Up”), so it’s only fitting that Xtina is front and center. Her contribution is called “America” and is probably a reject from her forever-delayed 8th album. Other divas taking part in the project are Gwen Stefani and Pink.

The soundtrack contains Gwen’s “Medicine Man,” an unused track from the This Is What The Truth Feels Like sessions, and Pink’s “Halfway Gone” (I assume it’s not a Lifehouse cover). I’m also excited to hear new music from Lykke LiNatasha Bedingfield and Pat Benatar (!). The album drops November 9 and comes with a DVD of the documentary. All proceeds raised by the soundtrack will go the female veteran-focused charity Final Salute. See a trailer for the film below.

Tracks featured on the soundtrack (the final order is TBD):

Pat Benatar – “Dancing Through The Wreckage”

Pink – “Halfway Gone”

Christina Aguilera – “America”

Gwen Stefani – “Medicine Man”

Natasha Bedingfield – “Hey Boy”

Chely Wright – “Shine A Light”

Lizzo – “Good As Hell”

Dorothy – “Naked Eye”

Beth Lowen – “Joyride”

Lykke Li – “End of the Night”

Maya Heslov – “Fighter”

Willa Amai – “Scars”

Little Mix – “Salute”

Demi Lovato Reveals That “Lonely” Features A Male Rapper


Demi Lovato shared an interesting tidbit about 6th Tell Me You Love Me on the red carpet last night (September 10). The pop star revealed that there’s a track called “Lonely” on the album and added that it features a male rapper. She wouldn’t reveal the identity of her collaborator but all signs point to French Montana. After all, the “Sorry Not Sorry” hitmaker spent some time in the studio with the “Unforgettable” rapper in June and shared video of the session on Instagram.

Of course, Demi is no stranger to hip-hop collaborations. She teamed up with Iggy Azalea on Confident bop “Kingdom Come” (there’s also an unreleased remix of “Cool For The Summer” lying around somewhere) and joined forces with Sirah on “Waitin For You.” The 25-year-old is enjoying her most successful era to date with a hit lead single and critical acclaim for buzz tracks “Tell Me You Love Me” and “You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore.” Find out more about her new bop and catch up on her charitable endeavors below.

The Ladies Of Fifth Harmony “Deliver” Glamor In Their New Video


Fifth Harmony casually dropped a video for “Deliver” on the weekend. The girl group channels The Supremesin their latest visual, serving old school glamor in matching ’60s gowns and gloves. It’s a simple premise, but it works well in this context. Particularly given that “Deliver” is another bop. Produced by The Stereotypes, the ladies’ latest buzz track is another R&B-leaning banger with sexy lyrics and a chorus that burrows further into your brain after each listen. This would make a great third single after “He Like That.”

While the content keeps on coming, 5H is yet to land a knock-out blow like “Work From Home” or “Worth It.” The most likely contender is “He Like That,” but it hasn’t made much of an impact on iTunes or pop radio yet. The album’s confusing rollout could be a factor. They have already released four videos and performed multiple singles on TV. It’s hard to tell what they’re actually promoting at times. Having said all that, “Deliver” is still a bop and the retro video is well worth a watch. Check it out up top.

It Looks Like Nick Jonas Is About To Roll Out New Music


Update: Nick’s new single is called “Find You.” See his announcement below.

It looks like Nick Jonas is ready to introduce his third solo album (as an adult). The pop star has been teasing pics of sand dunes on Instagram and recently changed his Facebook cover to the same sandy snap. It was all a little confusing until an update account posted the full image, which appears to be a single or album cover. Given how quickly labels move these days, I wouldn’t be surprised if we get something new on Friday (September 15) or, if there’s a bigger rollout planned, the week after.

While new music from Nick is always a good thing, I hope his new era is more in the vein of “Jealous” and “Chains” (i.e. soulful pop/R&B) than the electro-heavy sound of Last Year Was Complicated. The lead single, “Close,” was on the money, but the following singles failed to connect — largely due to bizarre choices (no one wanted “Bacon”) and off-trend, at least in America, club beats. The cover art (below) is epic and intriguing, so let’s hope the 24-year-old comes through with a big song.

K-Pop Kings BTS Team Up With The Chainsmokers For “Best Of Me”


Well, this is a little awkward. BTS officially announced their collaboration with The Chainsmokers on the same day that the EDM duo came under fire for making an offensive joke about Asians. (In case you missed the drama, Alex Pall expressed concerns for the safety of his dog while visiting China). The “Closer” hitmakers have issued an apology and the Kings of K-Pop are obviously willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Their collaboration is called “Best Of Me” and it features on the group’s new LP, Love Yourself.

The track was written by Chainsmokers member Drew Taggart and BTS rappers Rap MonsterSuga and J-Hope. “Best Of Me” is sure to be one of the most talked-about songs on the album, which is already shaping up to be a blockbuster. According to Billboard, there have already been more than 1.05 million pre-orders. If American fans contribute as little as five percent to that total, it would still be enough to guarantee a top 10 debut on the Billboard 200. A feat that would be a first for a K-Pop act and cement BTS’ status as global superstars.

The album drops September 18 and comes in four different formats L, O, V and E. Watch their latest promo video called “Serendipity” below.
