Can you believe it? August na! The month of July went by so quickly and it was filled to the brim with tunes that we all needed, leaving us with some of the most earphone hugging tracks.
This June, amp up your playlist with Katy Perry's latest track, Hilary Duff's comeback single and a whole lot more more of songs that would make you dance around like crazy! Plus, check out some of these OPM delights by Toni Gonzaga, Eunice &Kean and Pupil! Happy listening!
1. "Chains" - Nick Jonas
The youngest JoBro is ready to move on the next phase of his music career following the break up of the Jonas Brothers. Nick Jonas just released "Chains," the first single from his upcoming solo album. And it's distinctly different from the Jonas Brothers' music.
2. "Bang Bang" - Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj
After each of these three powerhouse females teased the track via social media over the past few weeks, “Bang Bang", is finally upon us. The strength of “Bang Bang” lies in their piercing vocals, Jessie J’s powerful vocals, Grande’s swooning croon, and Minaj’s rapid-fire spitting rapping—a bit of an updated take on 2001’s “Lady Marmalade.”
3. "Chasing the Sun" - Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff's hiatus is so yesterday! She's back in the music scene after 6 years. The new visuals for her new single are just so fun and bubbly. In the video, Duff is an overwhelmed office worker dreaming of having fun in the sun with a handsome man instead of being confined to her mundane job. She makes several gaffes at work, including throwing water on coworkers during a meeting and snoozing in the break room.
4. "This Love Is Like" - Toni Gonzaga
This music video is still hot from the oven! Toni Gonzaga's music video for her carrier single "This Love Is Like" from her latest album "Celestine" gave her fans an an all access pass and experience the life of Toni Gonzaga on and off the camera.
5. "Come It Bae" - Pharrell Williams
The "Happy" hitmaker and former Disney darling came together in one music video. The concept of the video is pretty simple - Pharrell is seen filming a ton of beautiful ladies as they dance along to the catchy beat, while Miley joins in on the action wearing an outfit only she could pull off. Wearing short jean shorts, a white crop top, a varsity jacket of sorts, and high-top sneakers, she looks cute, comfortable, and herself. While Pharrell dons his omnipresent hats in the video.
6. "Just One Of The Guys" - Jenny Lewis
Former Rilo Kiley member Jenny Lewis recruited Hollywood A-listers Anne Hathaway, Brie Larson, Kristen Stewart and Tennessee Thomas to ape the opposite sex in her new music video. These four girls donned their their best cross-dressing chic, rocking out on colored Adidas tracksuits and sported facial hair and rat tails. All this to prove women will never (and should never) be just a guy.
7. "You & I" - John Legend
The 4-minute video shows women of all ages, races, shape and sizes seemingly looking into the mirror as Legend sings, “You fix your make up, just so / Guess you don’t know, that your beautiful. / Try on every dress that you own. / You were fine in my eyes, a half hour ago. / If your mirror won’t make it any clearer I’ll / Be the one to let you know / Out of all the girls / You my one and only girl. / Ain’t nobody in the world tonight.”
8. "This Is How We Do" - Katy Perry
Katy Perry shows us how it's done. In the music video, fans are in for a colorful, artsy party! After introducing to us the worst birthday entertainers in her "Birthday" music video, Katy now shows everyone how it's done: "Chillin' laid back, straight stuntin' yeah we do it like that."
9. "Happy Together" - Kean Cipriano & Eunice Jorge
Kean and Eunice lend their distinct voices and add their own flavor to some of our of favorite classics, giving ten memorable songs an updated touch that's a bit more appealing for our generation today.
10. "Wait On Me" - Rixton
“Wait On Me” will be featured on their forthcoming debut LP. The track is the title track off their upcoming LP of the same name and it gives slight glimpses of their clear Maroon 5 influence and is truly a good ole pop tune that is as catchy as ever. Lead singer Jake Roche’s vocals can also be compared to Adam Levine‘s as well. The song opens up with the lyrics, “Wait on me, I know how to love you / And I want to love you some more / Wait on me / Come a little closer / Want to be the one to explore.”
11. "Out of Control" - Pupil
"Out of Control" -- both the single and its accompanying video -- surely is a great sign of things to come for the newly-revitalized Pupil. The video is packed with outstanding 3D animation and CGI. The dystopic, sci-fi-flavored video was produced by Chelo Bacarro and directed by Erin Pascual, as to whom they give the whole creative control over the said video.
12. "Ultraviolence" - Lana Del Rey
Her message speaks to the video's dreamlike state, which features a brooding Lana wearing a fitted white wedding dress while she takes a walk down a very long aisle. In the clip, which was made to feel homemade and candidly shot, she carries a bouquet of white lilies, she winds through an elaborate, beautiful garden, mimicking a nervous bride's long walk down the aisle to her future groom. When she arrives at the altar, no one is there.
