In a press release about the album, Cam said, "I've got some stories to share from a formative chapter in my life. Personal changes and perspective changes, learning to accept the jumble of darkness and light in myself and in others. It's terrifying and electric and the point of being alive."

Self-proclaimed queen of Halloween, Kim Petras, surprised fans with a new addition to her spooky project, Turn Off the Light. The new song, "Party Till I Die," is everything we could have ever wanted. Featuring all sorts of beats and sounds that remind us of Halloween, this is the perfect track to jam to this season. Not to mention, the autotune in the song is pretty much legendary.
4. Carson Rowland Drops Single and Music Video, 'Paranoid'
You might recognize Carson Rowland if you watched the Netflix original series, Sweet Magnolias. In addition to his acting skills, he's also an incredible singer. He just dropped his latest single "Paranoid," alongside a fun music video.

5. Carly Pearce Releases 'Next Girl' Music Video
Carly Pearce's latest music video, "Next Girl," just dropped, and we're simply obsessed. Following the advances that lots of women deal with, Carly offers a glimpse into the female mind in a super relatable way. When asked about the humor of the song and video itself in a press release, Carly said, "While I truly hope the lyrics help the 'next girl' know that a jerk's actions are not her fault. I also wanted to mix some of the often experienced pick-up techniques with a little humor. Come on, do these really work?!"
6. Deacon Drops New Track 'Love For the Summer' Feat. Loren Gray
It's hard to believe Deacon is only 17 in his new track, "Love For the Summer," featuring Loren Gray. When the two join forces in this song, we're left with a dreamy, eccentric vibe we just want to dance and party to. It's the type of track you'd hear in a club, when you're doing your makeup for a night out or at a party with your best friends. This is definitely being added to our weekend playlist.
7. Becky G and Ozuna Release Music Video for 'No Drama'
Becky G and Ozuna just released their music video for "No Drama." These Latin superstars will make you want to get up and dance to their groovy song. In a press release, Becky G said, "I love this collab with Ozuna… I have always liked his music and I knew that together we could record something amazing. Now, perhaps more than ever before in our lives, less drama is something we all need, and this was part of the inspiration for the song."
8. Mishaal Debuts EP Life's a Ride, Alongside Music Video for 'Run Baby'
Now available to listen to is Mishaal's EP, Life's a Ride. In addition to this, he also dropped the music video for "Run Baby," which features his stunning voice singing in both English and Spanish. His EP includes six songs, and "Run Baby" might just be our favorite one. When asked about it in a press release, Mishaal said, "I've come from the most unlikely of places and yet I find myself in an even more unlikely place. Thank you for giving me strength to hit the ground running and I hope I can do the same for you."
9. Audrey Mika Drops 'Red Gatorade' Music Video
When we first listened to Audrey Mika's "Red Gatorade," we knew she was an artist we needed to keep an eye on. So when she released the music video earlier this week, we couldn't wait to watch it. Once we got over how stunning her highlighter and hair looked, we were drawn into the set of the video itself. You, too, will love the visuals of steam rising from the floor and sparkly accents. The video continues on with dancing scenes in a mirrored hall, amongst many more fun moments.
10. Keshi Releases Music Video for 'B.Y.S.'
Alongside the release of Keshi's EP Always, he dropped the music video for "B.Y.S." The opening scene immediately draws you in, as you're left staring at a scene involving bloody money scattered on the floor and a man who appears to be dead in a mask. The video follows a group of guys dressed up in tactical gear and masks, who are presumably about to rob a bank of some sort. We won't ruin the end for you, but it's certainly a must-watch.
