1. Mandy Corrente Has Fun With New Single 'Super Duper'
At just 8 years old, Mandy Corrente has already made a name for herself in the music world, and her latest single, "Super Duper," is about to be her most popular yet! Mandy sings in both English and Spanish in the song, which is all about not being afraid to go after your goals. "I want my fans to have fun dancing and learning new things in life, and through my song 'Super Duper,' you will see how anything is possible if you practice and believe that you can do it," Mandy told Sweety High in an interview. "You don't have to be afraid to learn new things and move your body. 'Super Duper' is a song full of energetic Latin rhythms, and you don't want to miss the music video."
2. keshi Drops Experimental 'GET IT' Song
keshi blurs the lines when it comes to musical genres, and with his latest song "GET IT," that's more prevalent than ever. With rap, indie and hip-hop influences, this new single is something we picture ourselves dancing to at the club. When asked about his upcoming album in a recent interview with Sweety High, keshi told us, "I've been listening to it for a year now and I'm still not sick of it. Can't wait for everyone to finally get their hands on it. Hope it can be a record you can put on and go back to for years to come."
3. Dominic Fike Amazes Fans With 'Elliot's Song' in Episode of Euphoria
We were fans of Dominic Fike before he ever took the stage on Euphoria, and that's all thanks to his absurdly talented singing skills. After watching him sing and perform "Elliot's Song" on the show, we just about lost it. After coming to love his character so much, we couldn't help but cry as we listened to the beautiful lyrics, which were written by Zendaya and Labrinth. Even if you're not a fan of the show, you need to listen to this acoustic song.
4. ROSIE Gets Deep With 'Next Life' Single
In the age of social media, it's hard to tell when a filter is staring you right in the face. That's why we're such big fans of ROSIE—she's raw, real and unfiltered. And with her new song "Next Life," her beauty shines through. This song will give you all the feels and is the reminder you need to live your life to the fullest. "'Next Life' is a complex song for me," ROSIE said in a press release. "Though it is painfully heartbreaking, I wanted to add a sense of hope each time the chorus circles back, 'maybe in my next life I can live my best life.' This song evokes a wide range of emotions, but I hope that ultimately it sends the message: we're all just human beings, doing our best to feel our best, whether it is in this life, or in our next life."
5. Hayden James Teams Up With Cassian and Elderbrook for 'On My Own'
If you plan on going to Coachella this year, we suggest watching Hayden James' set. His new song was made in collaboration with Cassian and Elderbrook and will be adored by fans of dance and electronic music. You truly can't help but dance to the beat! "Cass and I worked out this high melodic, harmonic synth lead line you hear in the pre chorus," Hayden said in a press release. "The marriage of the melody with Elderbrook's soaring vocal is such a moment… it's all about harmony for me. We knew we had something special once we got that down. This one feels like a true Hayden x Cassian x Elderbrook collab. It has huge energy and is a true dance floor feel."
6. Country Singer Ian Flanigan Releases 'Under a Southern Sky'
Sometimes, all you need to unwind is a gritty country song, and that's exactly what you get with Ian Flanigan's new single "Southern Sky." The up-and-comer has performed alongside Blake Shelton and is about to take the country world by storm. His deep and husky voice will leave you with butterflies in your chest, especially when it comes to this new song! "'Under a Southern Sky' is a song about that small-town summer night feeling when you're feeling free and rocking out," Flanigan said in a press release. "It's an anthem for that good feeling, really all year round, and I hope you resonate with the vibe as much as I do."
7. Khalid Shares New Single 'Last Call'
R&B singer Khalid knows how to pull in an audience, which is completely evident in his latest single, "Last Call." Celebrating five years since the release of American Teen, this song is a true celebration. "I'm really excited to share "Last Call" with all my fans," Khalid shared in a press release. "It's important to me to commemorate this day and look back at everything that has happened. I can't believe it's been five years already. I hope you guys enjoy it and celebrate with me and all we've done together."
8. Omah Lay and Justin Bieber Team Up for 'Attention'
Whenever we find out that Justin Bieber has new musical content, we drop everything and listen to it that second, and after watching the music video for his new song "Attention" with Omah Lay, we are even more in love! The two together make some incredible beats and we're hoping they'll continue to work together in the future. Omah was quoted in an Instagram post saying, "One thing I hope people take away from this song especially is the emotion, the realness. It's always about me telling a story."
9. Diplo Drops Highly-Anticipated New Self-Titled Album, Diplo
If you're not following Diplo on social media, please do so, because he will keep you up-to-date on all of his adventures. Remember when he live-streamed Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner's wedding? That was cinematic gold! And we think his"Don't Forget My Love" music video might be the next biggest thing. It feels like more of a short film with Sarah Bahbah qualities, and it's so good. In an Instagram post about the music video, Diplo said, "Mark my words… this could be the first music video to make it Sundance. Not only did we hire the cinematographer from Euphoria, @miguel and I put on our academy award winning acting skills."
10. Machine Gun Kelly and Lil Wayne Collab on 'ay!'
Machine Gun Kelly seems to be everyone's favorite star at the moment, and we're totally on the same bandwagon. After listening to his new hit with Lil Wayne, we're in even more awe of him! The music video for "ay!" was also released, and we think everyone will get a kick out of it. The eclectic outfits are giving some thrift shop vibes and we can't. stop. watching. We also got a laugh out of Lil Wayne's appearance, which was actually just a drawing. You need to see it to understand what we're talking about!
