This week’s singles are bringing back old favorites in the best way. From Ke$ha to The Killers there is something for everyone.
Ke$ha is back with a brand new album. Rainbow is her first in four years. Ke$ha was banned from releasing new music with any other label than Kemosabe. Her legal dispute with the label and her mentor Dr. Luke took a turn for the worse for the pop-star. She was stuck in her contract but refused to record new music with them.
Now she is finally back in the limelight with a powerful anthem “Learn To Let Go.” It’s hard not to get chills during the chorus as she belts about the past not defining her. Realizing how much she went through to get to this point makes the single that much more enjoyable. Ke$ha’s place in pop music is still as prominent as ever. It’s good to have her back.
Charli XCX has been a powerhouse over the last few years. From “Fancy” to “Boom Clap” she’s covered the charts. In her new single “Boys” she slows it down to reflect on her past relationships. She coos “I Was Busy Thinking/Dreaming About Boys” over and over. XCX goes into detail about the intoxicating feelings boys have brought to her life. It’s a sexier summer jam.
Future and Nikki Minaj have teamed up for the second time on his new track “You Da Baddest.” Future spends the majority of the song serenading Minaj. He’s at the center of it until the minute and 53 mark where she roars in and takes over. Both artists are confident on the single declaring their love for one another.
Macklemore’s new single “Marmalade” is a lively treat. He doesn’t let up. The track stays upbeat and energized as Lil Yachty comes in for the last two minutes. Both rappers have a good chemistry as they close out the track together singing, “I Be Riding Through the Town, Town, Town.”
“Marmalade” will continue to amp fans up after June’s “Glorious” single dropped. Macklemore’s solo album will debut later this year.
For the first time if five years the Killers are releasing a new album. Wonderful Wonderful is being released later this year. The band teased the trackless which included single “Run For Cover.”
It showcases lead singer, Brandon Flowers’ vocals expertly. “Run For Cover” keeps the catchy and upbeat vibes throughout. It has the same potential to be an epic crowd anthem like “Mr. Brightside.” As Wonderful Wonderful continues to gain traction, “Run For Cover” will likely become a new standout for The Killers.
