Tired of all the heavy winter storms?

Hopefully, this edition of New Music Releases will warm you up!

Salute by Little Mix

The British girl band is back with their sophomore album.  I am really impressed with the ladies because all four members of the X Factor UK winning group wrote majority of the tracks on this CD.  The songs are stronger and there are shades of New Jack Swing and 90s R&B/Pop that are sprinkled throughout the album. There are several sturdy radio hits and club bangers in this album and I hope that they continue their rise to superstardom.  B+

Tracks to Download: “ Move,” “Nothing Feels Like You,” “Towers” & “Little Me

Love, Marriage & Divorce by Toni Braxton & Babyface

Two of R&B’s greatest vocalists teamed up for an incredible collaborative album! Love, Marriage and Divorce will take listeners on a superb 11-track ride that feature amazing vocal performances from both artists.  This record will be a strong contender for a majority of awards later on this year. A+

Tracks to Download: “Roller Coaster,” “Sweat,” “Hurt You,” “Take It Back” & “Reunited”


Kylie Minogue Into the Blue

Into the Blue” by Kylie Minogue

Welcome back, Kylie Minogue! The Australia darling and current Voice UK coach released her first new single in four years. “Into the Blue” features solid lyrics from songwriters Kelly Sheehan and Jacob Kasher plus strong beats courtesy of Mike Del Rio. As for Kylie, her siren-like vocals still cast a spell on listeners and will make them mark their calendars for Kiss Me Once’s release date.  A

“Look at You” by Big & Rich

I love Big & Rich! Big Kenny and John Rich always create incredible music together.  Their latest single, “Look at You,” shows the duo at their prime.  Their vocal harmonies and impeccable guitar melodies are pure country nirvana and I hope that their latest studio album contains songs like “Look at You” because it will help put them back on top! A-

“Pretzelbodylogic” by Prince & 3RDEYEGIRL

This is the funkiest track I have heard so far this year! I hope that Prince & 3RDEYEGIRL release an album soon because they will rock the charts! A


David Nail Whatever She's Got

Whatever She’s Got” by David Nail

When I was looking for songs to review for you, I suddenly found this incredible artist named David Nail.  He is such a breath of fresh air and his artistry is what the country music industry needs right now!  I have a feeling that I will be listening to this song over and over again in my playlist for a while.
