Ed Sheeran feat. Pharrell Williams | 'Sing'
This sounds more like a Justin Timberlake single than Ed Sheeran, and that probably has something to do with Pharrell’s attachment to it. Proving that he’s capable of more than just sad acoustic songs, Ed Sheeran has decided to veer off in a totally different direction with ‘Sing’, though I can’t say I’m a huge fan of the new sound. ‘Sing’ is the first track off Sheeran’s forthcoming album, x, or Multiply, which will hit stores on June 23
Chris Brown feat. Ariana Grande | ‘Don’t Be Gone Too Long’
With legal woes keeping Chris Brown from focusing his attention on his music career (I mean, what’s new!), it was starting to get a little uncertain on when we would finally get his duet with Ariana Grande. Fortunately, the gods have answered and lo and behold we’ve been given the proper new tune ‘Don’t Be Gone Too Long’. It’s a little less gimmicky compared to some of his most recent singles (i.e. ‘Turn Up The Music’, though I do really love that song) and actually very good all around - especially the Ariana parts that fade in and out during the chorus. Also important to note: Breezy posted a simple, yet effective, video for the song which basically showcases his insane dancing abilities (click here to watch the video).
As of right now there is still no work on when the song will be released. Brown’s new album X is scheduled for a May 5 release, though I think we should all just hold off until May 5 rolls along before we start believing that one.

Rita Ora | 'I Will Never Let You Down'
Rita Ora has just premiered her new single ‘I Will Never Let You Down’ and it’s a total smash. The singer paid a visit to the Capital FM Breakfast Show on March 31st to share her new tune. ‘I Will Never Let You Down’, which was written and produced by real-life lover Calvin Harris, definitely sounds like a Calvin Harris jam, but a more toned down pop version of what he normally releases which works quite brilliantly for Rita.
Recently during an interview with Paper magazine, Rita compared her new single to some of Whitney Houston’s timeless classics. Rita explained that ”I Will Never Let You Down is obviously a very important song to me because it’s a love song, but it reminds you of Whitney, and that was the vibe we were on. We just wanted to feel good. You know that feeling of How Will I Know with the synth? It just makes you feel happy … that’s what I wanted to create.”
Rita’s ‘I Will Never Let You Down’ will be available to purchase on May 11th.

Karmin | 'Gasoline'
One of the stronger tracks from Karmin’s album Pulses. I definitely prefer singing Karmin to rapping Karmin.
