1. Tones And I Debuts New Single and Music Video for 'Fly Away'
Tones And I, a stunner of an Australian singer and songwriter, just graced us with an incredible new single, "Fly Away." But that's not all, she also dropped the music video for the song, too! Once we started watching, we couldn't tear our eyes from the screen. In a press release about the song, Tones And I said, "This song is inspired by the way I thought I would feel versus the way I actually feel. I think that's very powerful, at least to me. It's about genuine happiness and what we think we need to have happiness versus what we actually want. The truth is we only ever want anything because we think it will make us happy, but it's never that simple."
2. Thomas Rhett Releases Music Video for 'What's Your Country Song'
One of our all time fave country singers, Thomas Rhett, just released the music video for "What's Your Country Song," and we couldn't be more stoked.

In a press release about the music video, Thomas Rhett said, "The lyrics of this song stir up so many vivid memories for me; I think everyone has that one song that takes them back to a specific moment in time. I wanted the music video to visually capture that same thing and instantly transport anyone watching back to that familiar feeling or place in their mind."
3. R&B Singer-Songwriter Savannah Cristina Drops Music Video for 'Self Love'

5. Chloe Moriondo Drops New Music Video for 'Girl On TV'
Don't even get us started on Chloe Moriondo's outfits in her new music video for "Girl On TV." They're eclectic, 100% original and the perfect representation of the singer. We're loving the message behind this song. In a press release about the track, Chloe said, "Girl On TV is about the sort of underlying superficial jealousy that comes along with the usual disdain myself and I think a lot of others feel when looking at rich influencers with seemingly perfect faces and bodies and lives!" We agree, girl!
6. MAX Debuts Steve Aoki Remix of 'Blueberry Eyes' Feat. Suga of BTS
We've been vibing to MAX's song, "Blueberry Eyes" for quite some time now. So when word got out that Steve Aoki was doing a remix, we lost it. The music video itself will transport you back to the '80s, giving you a total retro feel. Steve Aoki is in the background on the keyboard, while MAX takes on the vocals. We're loving the emotions this evokes, and we're sure you'll be jamming to this in no time.

Chances are, you've heard the song "Life" by Maejor, featuring Sofia Reyes and Alonzo. It's groovy and makes you want to sway to the music. Good news, because they just dropped the music video! Maejor is known for producing feel-good music, which he claims is his ultimate goal. In a press release about songwriting and making music, he said, "A simple way of describing the process is that by the music vibrating in frequencies that match nature, they help bring the listener into increased harmony."
8. Pentatonix Drops New Holiday Album, We Need a Little Christmas
The a cappella group Pentatonix just puts us in a good mood—plain and simple. With every new song they release, we're left with goosebumps, and quite often, tears. They know how to produce gut-wrenching emotions through their voices, so we knew we were going to fall in love with their new holiday album, We Need a Little Christmas. Below is the music video for "Amazing Grace," one of the songs on the album. We dare you to not get the chills while watching it! And if you're craving more after watching it, their version of "Hallelujah" has over half a billion views and will change your life (not to be dramatic.)
9. Justice Carradine Debuts New Song, 'Can't Feel A Thing'
Justice Carradine just debuted his new song, "Can't Feel a Thing." This song will make you go in search of the nearest dance floor and get your groove on. In a press release, he said, "I wrote 'Can't Feel A Thing' two years ago when I started experiencing depersonalization and derealization. Since then, I've worked on myself a lot. I've learned how to feel more and cope with life in healthy ways. I'm learning more and more every day, but this song means a lot to me because it shows me how much progress I've made and reminds me that you can still dance even when it's dark."
