Pop songs you NEED to listen to right now

Keeping you up to date with the hottest new releases

It’s time to pop those headphones on and listen to this month’s hottest new releases in pop music.

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato has easily released the best album of her career thus far with Tell Me You Love Me, her sixth studio album, but it is also one of the strongest pop albums to drop in 2017.

This girl has some strong pipes and she came to slay with this album, in which she occupied an integral position in its production, co-writing almost every track with her longtime collaborator, Sean Douglas, who produced her smash single Heart Attack, among others.

One of the highlights of the album is You Don’t Do It For Me Anymore, a powerful ballad that have double meanings – a toxic relationship and dealing with substance abuse.

Anne-Marie

UK pop star Anne-Marie, best known for collaboration with Clean Bandit and Sean Paul on the chart-topping hit Rockabye, recently shared Heavy, the third single from her highly anticipated debut album.

Produced by The Invisible Men (Fancy by Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX) and MNEK (Never Forget You featuring Zara Larsson), this beach-tinted bop is a great showcase for her vocals.

ALMA

Ex-Idols contestant ALMA is breaking out on her own with a new album and a stellar new single, Phases, featuring French Montana.

The track, produced by Charlie Handsome (Drake, Mac Miller) and co-written by Charli XCX, continues the Finnish songstress’s ascension in the pop music world.

Fergie

The Dutchess’s new album leaked earlier this summer, way, way ahead of schedule, but that didn’t stop the ex-Black Eyed Peas frontwoman.

She even exceeded expectations by releasing a full visual experience called Double Dutchess: Seeing Double last month, an accompanying album full of highly stylized music videos featuring a long list of guest stars like Kim Kardashian, Suicide Squad star Jay Hernandez, Nicki Minaj and Kendall Jenner.

Fergie Ferg’s new album has its highs and lows, but it is still very enjoyable. Per example, Enchanté, Tension and You Already Know are really fun tracks and Save It Til Morning is basically a sequel to Big Girls Don’t Cry, one of her most popular songs.

BANKS

American songstress BANKS dropped a new track called Underdog, exactly one year after the release of her sophomore album, the critically acclaimed The Altar.

The singer-songwriter brought a surprisingly upbeat feel for this song, compared to her previous work, in a new and refreshing way.

On a side note, you should also listen to Crowded Places, one of her most heartbreaking anthems that was quietly released earlier this year.

P!nk

The pop powerhouse is releasing her seventh album, Beautiful Trauma, her first in nearly five years, this month.

She took a political swing with the empowering lead single, What About Us, but she decided to take a more conventional approach with the title track of her forthcoming album.

This song, about a fucked-up relationship that feels like a drug, was produced by Grammy-winning hitmaker Jack Antonoff, who previously worked with Lorde on her outstanding sophomore album Melodrama.

Beautiful Trauma simply reminds us why we love her so much.
