May 31 was good day for music lovers, with quite a few big names in the music industry releasing new material, with Perry getting in a video as well
Today is the day of new music - Katy Perry, Cardi B, Camila Cabello, Tove Lo, Carlie XCX, Gucci Mane and Justin Bieber along with Miley Cyrus' much awaited 'She is Coming'.
Here's what you need to know about all of this new music that you need to catch up on!
Cardi B's 'Press' came out Friday and she's got the Bardi gang super worked up on Twitter. The track basically takes a jab at tabloids as Cardi talks about how she doesn't need any more press. "Cardi don't need no press," she raps.
The track was dropped without a video, has a black and white nude photo of the rapper surrounded by paparazzi with an old Hollywood glam feel about it. She also tweeted a separate promo picture for the track that is a recreation of serial killer Aileen Wuornos' infamous image in cuffs. Wuornos, who was executed in 2002, was a former sex worker who was sentenced to death after killing 7 men, that she claimed were in self-defense. The Charlize Theron starrer 'Monster' was based on her life.
Camila Cabello dropped a collaboration with Mark Ronson as well called 'Find You Again'. "I'll try to pass the night away with somebody new/ But they don't have a shot when I compare them to you," Cabello croons on the track that is co-produced by Ronson and Kevin Parker of Tame Impala.
'Cool Girl' singer Tove Lo also released a new track called 'Glad He's Gone'. She's dropping a new album later this year called 'Sunshine Kitty' and this single is from the album. Twitter loved the track and claimed that "Tove Lo should be approximately 40X more popular than she is".
Charlie XCX also just recently released a Spice Girls remix with Diplo, which is inspired by 'Wannabe'. Called 'Spicy' it is a dance-pop fusion track that will definitely get you on your feet.
As for Gucci Mane and JB's collaboration 'Love Thru the Computer', it's one hell of a catchy tune. Bieber sings the super casual, easy flowing chorus parts to the song as Mane spits some verses.
Katy Perry, however, did one up on everybody - she dropped a new song and a music video. The track named 'Never Really Over' sees Perry take over the role of a candy-colored heartbreak shaman, as she does everything in her power to get over that messy relationship.
The song reminds you a lot of 'T.G.I.F' in a way that it shows a more vulnerable side to her with her signature quirky bits. This is a far cry from 'Roar' and 'Witness' but definitely a welcome change!
