  1. This year is less complicated. New Nick Jonas. Since Nick Jonas decided to go solo, he's released a steady stream of music. He had a couple of hits on 2014's self-titled and really dived into his craft with 2016's Last Year Was Complicated. Side note: "Bacon" should have performed better. Cut to present day – the Jo Bro is vying for a spot on the 2017 charts – he's got a new tune titled "Remember I Told You" featuring Mike Posner and Anne Marie. It's not clear whether it's the lead single off a new album, or a buzz track to keep his name out there in the summer months. “Remember I told you, I need you / All of the words that I'm saying / Are just a fancy way of saying I care,” he sings over a plunky guitar melody and a couple of production bells and whistles. Mike Posner has a subdued breathy verse and Anne Marie pairs her vocals with Nick's. I'd be interested to hear a solo version. Give it a spin (the song is available to stream beginning at midnight EST): Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  2. A hit. Love is a road that goes both ways. The term "song of the summer" gets thrown around a lot these days, but it's because there's a lot of legitimately good music getting flung around every Friday. Take for instance DJ Martin Garrix and Australian pop star Troye Sivan's new tune, "There For You." Sure, it's got the warbly EDM tricks that are a dime-a-dozen, but this one's got an important message of inclusivity – something the world is in dire need of right now. Sivan's smooth vocals melt over Garrix's frosty beats: "So when your tears roll down your pillow like a river / I'll be there for you, I'll be there for you," he sings. "When you're screaming, but they only hear you whisper / I'll be loud for you / But you gotta be there for me too." Garrix previewed the song at one of his shows recently. Give that a spin until the studio version / music video is made available (beginning at midnight EST): So... song of the summer? It's one of em'. Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  3. Into Me You See. To be honest, I'm not sure where to start. Katy perry partook in a live stream chat with Capital FM today. It was held inside the same pub where she made her UK debut nearly a decade ago. There's a lot going on. The biggest takeaway music-wise is the album closer on Witness that Katy gabbed about. It's titled “Into Me You See” (when said quickly it sounds like 'intimacy') and is about really hearing one another. “I think it would be great to talk with instead of at. That’s what Witness is about – being seen and heard.” Everything else is... well. Catch it below: Le sigh. Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  4. Bish. Swish Swish, bish. Katy Perry performed "Swish Swish" on Saturday Night Live last weekend, but sans Nicki Minaj. Hopefully the two will make things right and sing their new tune together at the first-ever NBA Awards this weekend. Drake is hosting. The rap queen confirmed she'll hit the stage that night and perform her Katy collab. The Witness singer hasn't mentioned anything about it on her socials yet, but Nicki has a history of jumping the gun. Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  5. R9 is coming. Highly suspect. Well this is interesting. Rihanna has just registered two new songs on ASCAP. Is R9 on the way? Let's speculate, shall we? One of the new tunes is titled "Phatty." It's written by the Bad Gal Riri herself, as well as Mark Anthony Myrie A.K.A. reggae artist Buju Banton. The pop star filmed a SnapChat of herself listening to his music earlier this year. Even better, Rih headed into a recording studio in NYC this week wearing a shirt with Banton's face on the front. Practically a confirmed collab. We also know of another song Rih has in the works. It's titled "Only One Who Knows," and she's got another writing credit on it. Receipts: At one point in her career, Rihanna was releasing an album nearly every year. She broke that trend with ANTi by waiting a whopping four. The record remains flaw free, but a new LP from Riri in 2017 would be more than welcome. Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  6. Zayn will probably rejoin. Each member of One Direction has launched a solo career since disbanding, and granted their songs are performing relatively well, but their success as One Direction remains unmatched. One of the former members, Niall Horan covers the latest issue of Billboard magazine. He's currently putting the finishing touches on his new album (which he got advice from Justin Bieber about), and has a new tune out titled "Slow Hands." A bop! Below are some of the highlights from his chat with the music giant. You can read the full interview here. He confirms he would reunite with One Direction if they ever ask: “I told my ­managers from the start: When One Direction comes knocking, fook what I’m doing. I don’t give a shit if I sold out arenas or won Grammys. I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for that.” He is certain Zayn will join the reunion: “We’ll always have mutual respect. When we get back to the band, he’ll be at the forefront again,” says Horan. UPDATE: A rep from Billboard reached out and amended the highlight. Horan was talking about Simon Cowell, not Zayn. Here is their exact wording: "The quote was in reference to Simon Cowell, not Zayn." And he’s certain they’ll be back: “When it will be, I don’t know. I ­prefer not to do it after I’m 40. I’d prefer the next few years.”...“we haven’t even had a ­conversation about how long we think the break will be.” On how strange it is for him to not be in One Direction anymore: “Every now and then you’re like, ‘Fookin’ hell, where is everyone?’ ” he says. “You’re sitting in an airport lounge, they call you for a plane, and you don’t stand up initially because you’re waiting on ­everyone else, you know? ‘Oh, Louis’ll be back from the toilet in a minute.’” On his solo work versus his work with 1D: “Nothing I do will be as big as One Direction, but I have to try at least to get somewhere near it.” His words of wisdom from Justin Bieber: “Bieber told me that you never really know when you’re finished” with an album, says Horan He still keeps in touch with his former bandmates: "I see Louis and [his son] little Freddie all the time. He lives around the corner from me [in Los Angeles],” he says. He picked up gifts for Payne’s month-old boy that he hasn’t been able to present yet, because their ­schedules haven’t aligned. He planned to see Styles when the lanky star was in town for a ­weeklong residency on The Late Late Show With James Corden and genuinely gushes about his April episode of Saturday Night Live: “I loved his brilliant impression of Mick Jagger” in the Family Feud sketch, he says. As for his musical performances, he adds, “I really enjoyed them. He’s smashin’ it.” Horan even shrugs off Zayn Malik’s post-1D kvetching: “Oh, pfft. I know what Zayn’s like -- outspoken, and fair play to him.” Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  7. Don't give up. Sia is the soundtrack queen. In the last year or so, the elusive singer teamed up with Queen Latifah and Miguel for a song titled "Satisfied" off the Hamilton mixtape, reunited with frequent collaborator Greg Kurstin on "Never Give Up" off the soundtrack to the Australian-American-British film Lion, penned "Angel By The Wings" from the documentary film The Eagle Huntress, an opulent ballad titled "Helium" off the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack and "Suitcase" From The 'Leap!' soundtrack. Here's another one for the books: Sia has teamed up with Labrinth, who recently featured on Noah Cyrus' lead NC-17 single "Make Me (Cry)," for a song titled "To Be Human" off the Wonder Woman soundtrack. It's another cinematic score that finds Sia crooning warbly hooks before a plunky piano melody hollows around her soaring vocals. "To be human is to love / Even when it gets too much / I'm not ready to give up." Another hit from Sia. Listen: Unstoppable. Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  8. Mark you calendars! The Internet has speculated Lana Del Rey's Lust For Life release date for weeks, but the pop star is finally setting the record straight. Expect her new tunes to drop July 21. A recap: It was originally reported L4L would debut on May 26 – as in this Friday. Then a few international music distributing websites plopped July 21 into their systems and upset the blogosphere. Not because of how far away July 21 is (although that's bothersome), but because it offered no clarity. Then Paris Match magazine, who photographed Lana for the latest issue, reiterated the July 21 date. Now we know what's up. In case you didn't read anything I just wrote: JULY 21. Mark you calendars!

  9. A knee-slapper. Noah Cyrus is having the best debut ever. Sure, it helps her big sis is Miley Cyrus, who just dropped one of my favorite pop cuts of the summer with "Malibu," but the last name will only take her so far. Luckily, Noah makes legitimately great music, and it's taking her places (despite her new tune begin titled "I'm Stuck.") ‘Cause your love has tamed the devil out of me / Stole my heart and pulled the rug under my feet," she sings over a knee-slapping beat and acoustic guitars. "I was a careless Casanova, but you made my heart go weak, and I’m stuck, I’m stuck." Then there’s the infectious ‘wooh oohs’ that really takes it home. Noah chose to release it on a Thursday which is a smart move. Worldwide music release day is Friday, and good songs are getting lost in the sound waves. Make sure you give this one a spin (it'll be available to stream beginning at midnight): I thought "Stay Together" was a song of the summer contender, but I hadn't met "I'm Stuck" yet. Her forthcoming album NC-17 sounds like a banger (excuse the pun). Thoughts on Noah's new tune? Let us know in Exhale.

  10. Song of the summer vibes. Check out a preview of "There for You." I have high hopes for this one. DJ Martin Garrix and pop star Troye Sivan have teamed up together for an inclusive song titled "There For You," and after Monday's horrific event... it couldn't come at a better time. The duo shared a preview of the song and video on social media today, and revealed the full thing drops on Friday (May 26). From what I can make of it thus far, it sounds like a breezy summer bop that highlights the silky side of EDM with Sivan's vibey vocals. Check it out below: Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  11. New music is on the way. UPDATE: In a matter of hours, a huge revelation has come to light regarding Fergie's exit from Interscope. It is now confirmed that she has in fact signed with BMG, and has also launched her own label as an imprint named 'Dutchess Music.' According to a statement via Forbes, the pop star's new music is “expected to begin its rollout towards the end of the summer.” Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  12. An upset. An upset. Fifth Harmony's Normani Kordei and teammate Val Chmerkovskiy were consistently the top scoring performers on Dancing With The Stars this season, but shockingly placed third in the finals last night. The pop star took her loss with grace. "I think everybody is super deserving," she said. "I found myself," she continued. "It impacted me greatly." Kordei then revealed the band has new music coming up. There are reports 5H's new tune drops June 2. Fortunately, her pop peers rallied around her following the L. #DWTSIsOverParty And while you're at it... leave a comment and follow us on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
  13. Her management issued a statement. Ariana Grande has cancelled her Dangerous Woman Tour for the foreseeable future. In the wake of the terrorist attack at her Manchester show on Monday (May 22), the pop star has decided to cancel shows through at least June 5. "Due to the tragic events in Manchester the Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost," Grande's management tells E! News in a statement today. "The London O2 shows this week have been canceled as well as all shows though June 5 in Switzerland." They add: "We ask at this time that we all continue to support the city of Manchester and all those families affected by this cowardice and senseless act of violence. Our way of life has once again been threatened but we will overcome this together. Thank you." There were conflicting reports on Tuesday that Ari had cancelled the entire tour, though others claimed that was false and select dates were getting postponed. The "Be Alright" singer was spotted deplaning in Florida yesterday to spend time with friends and family and recuperate from the horrific event. Grande has dates scheduled throughout Europe until June 17 where she would perform at the Pala Alpitour in Turin. From there, she would make stops in Latin America, Asia, Oceania and back to Asia.

  14. A bunch of blah blah blahs. A bunch of blah blah blahs. Justin Bieber's preview of his Kendrick Lamar "Humble" remix isn't the only gem to come from his appearance at 1OAK in NYC on Tuesday. The pop star attempted to perform a bit of the “Despacito” remix he's featured on with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s, which became the first Spanish-language #1 single since “Macarena” in 1996, but he failed miserably. TMZ has a video of the Biebs singing a bunch of "blah blah blahs" instead of Spanish. Slightly offensive, but I guess kudos for even trying? Watch below: It's worth mentioning he was there partying with The Chainsmokers. Listen to the actual song: Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.
