Lorde – Perfect Places

Lorde has released the second single from her sophomore album “Melodrama”, out on the 16th of June. The New Zealander worked with Fun’s Jack Antonoff to produce the album.

Her first single from the album, “Green Light”, quickly saw success in the charts and “Perfect Places” is highly likely to do the same. The single is electric, upbeat and is a definite party song.

The album is set to be a massive hit, perhaps even bigger than her debut “Pure Heroine”. Speaking to Rolling Stone, Lorde said:  "Everything written about on the album, give or take a couple of lines, all took place in New Zealand, is about me and my friends".

 

Rita Ora – Your Song

British singer Rita Ora has released her new single “Your Song”, it is thought to be the lead from her upcoming second album. The song is her first since 2015.

Last year Ora signed with Atlantic records after a lengthy legal battle with Jay Z’s Roc Nation.  The single was co-written with her new label mate Ed Sheeran and producer Steve Mac.

Her debut album, “Ora”, was certified platinum in the UK and it would be safe to assume her upcoming album will also see such success.

 “Your Song” is an electro-pop love song, it has definite nightclub vibes and will surely be one of this summer’s most popular dance tracks. 

 

Liam Payne – Strip that Down (feat. Quavo)

As the last (ex)member of One Direction to release solo music, Liam Payne had a lot to live up to and he delivers.

Payne wants everyone to know he has cut all ties to his former band, this is his music, and only his. The chorus says it all with the line: “you know I used to be in 1D (now I’m out free).”

His first single “Strip that Down” is completely different in style to is former bandmates, something he appears to be proud of. Having said this being in such a hugely successful boyband will surely influence the popularity of his song.

“Strip that Down” has a strong electronic beat; that is hard to resist bopping along to. The single was co-written by Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac, and will be heard in every club and at every party over the coming months.
