It better land at number one.
Seemingly out of nowhere, Brandy returns to the music scene with a feature on Mystery Skulls’ (AKA Luis Dubuc) new song titled “Number 1.” It also sees a feature with Nile Rogers who co-wrote Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.”
It’s like the 70′s had a love child with 2014 and birthed this highly-addictive bright dance track that blurs the lines between disco, EDM and pop.
“I wrote the song with [Brandy] in mind,” Dubuc tells The FADER of “Number 1.” “Then one day she heard it through someone we both knew, and she said yes. We were in the studio like a week later. When she showed up, she asked to sing on my other track, ‘Magic,’ as well. Brandy’s voice is stunning!”
You can’t have a song called “Number 1″ that doesn’t land at the top of the charts. Get to streaming:
Sorry JLo, but Britney is still the Queen of Vegas.
Jennifer Lopez is negotiating a deal to perform at the Axis theater inside Planet Hollywood where Britney Spears’ Piece Of Me show currently resides and rake in a lot of money doing it. Not as much as Brit Brit though!
Rita Ora’s grateful for the sucky things in life.
Rita premiered her song for the romantic drama “Beyond the Lights” today to help those struggling with Hump Day. No, really it’s about being grateful for the tough times so you can appreciate the better ones.
The song’s written by Diane Warren, who tells Billboard:
“Gina Prince-Bythewood (Beyond the Lights director) made an amazing movie that shows what really goes on beyond the lights of fame. I am so happy she had me write this song. I’m so proud of it and Rita Ora did an amazing vocal. I think it can be a career song for her. It shows a whole different side to her and I’m hoping we get to hear it all over the radio and see her sing it on the Oscars next year!”
Ryan Cabrera is bringing the house down.
It’s been years since we’ve heard an official release from Ryan Cabrera, but today all that changes. He released his new single, “House On Fire,” and it’s the pop rock anthem I was waiting for.
Ryan told BreatheHeavy.com back in August he planned on releasing an EP around this time, describing his music as feel-good.
“We’re going to put out five or six songs first,” he says, admitting “it’s been so long” and wants people to become familiar with him again.
“The record in general is a very upbeat, positive record. It’s very fun. You want to be in a convertible, with the top down, fuckin’ hanging out and just blasting the record.”
“As long as it’s positive and happy and upbeat and has the right mission… that’s the way this record’s gonna go.”
It’s a new departure for Ryan – typically his music has more of an acoustic feel to it, but I’m definitely feeling his evolved direction.
