Jul 14 New Music Friday offers good songs for all music tastes 😛
Let’s start our Friday selection with Kesha’s comeback after 5 years hiatus! Her forthcoming album ‘Rainbow’ will be released August 11. Track is another promo single after the leading ‘Praying’. The track sees the contribution of the funk and soul Dap-Kings. Singles show an edgier side of the American singer, distant from the easy electro pop of ‘Warrior’. Staying in the female pop scene Selena Gomez uncovers another piece of her third studio album. Track doesn’t have the catchiness of her past hits, though.

Gucci Mane appearance in Gomez song make us flow deeper into urban scene with hip-hop tracks. Let’s start from Tyler The Creator second single ‘Boredom’ to promote his forthcoming studio album (Jul 21) ‘Scum Fuck Flower Boy’ under Columbia Records. French Montana ‘A Lie’, third single chosen from ‘Jungle Rules’, is the next song of our selection. Though not powerful as first single ‘Unforgettable’, track has a good instrumental and The Weeknd melodic aid which is always a safe (kiss)land. Hip-hop last stop is The Cool Kids ‘Checkout’. Song follows ‘Tv Dinner’ and teases to a forthcoming album? Let’s wait and see.

Let’s explore electro territory with emerging duo KLLO (Chloe Klaus and Simon Lam) from Melbourne Australia. ‘Virtue’ offers some garage shades and a soft atmosphere. Khaela Maricich and Melissa Dyne are behind The Blow. Song is formed of spoken melody (that strikes attention like ads) over a captivating instrumental that makes you keep stuck till the end of the song.
