Ready for some fresh tunes, music lovers?
Just as we get ready to welcome the festive season, we have new releases from a couple of the biggest names in pop music. Before you update your Spotify playlist, take a look at these new music videos below:
1. Paris Hilton – “I Need You”
In honour of Valentine’s Day, heiress Paris Hilton blessed us with a super bubbly visual for “I Need You”. Turns out, this “new” single is a demo that has been floating around online since 2010. So what inspired the Queen of Perfumes to roll it out now? She’s all loved-up (thanks to her engagement to actor Chris Zylka) and wants to share with the world. It’s nowhere as good as “Stars Are Blind”, but we’ll take it.
2. Eminem feat Ed Sheeran – “River”
On the other hand, we have an unhappy Valentine’s Day with the arrival of Eminem’s painful “River” video. Focusing on a traumatic relationship, the documentary-style visual starts with Eminem and Ed Sheeran giving their views on love. “My personal life is not exactly a highlight reel,” the 45-year-old MC says. “If you don’t have the trust element, you’re f**ked,” the “Perfect” singer-songwriter adds.
The duo’s collaboration is slowly shaping up to be a breakout hit.
3. Khalid and Normani Kordei – “Love Lies”
At this point, every other member from Fifth Harmony has released solo materials except Normani Kordei. Thankfully, the “Dancing With the Stars” queen is finally kicking off her solo career with “Love Lies”. It’s dreamy mid-tempo duet with Khalid, lifted from the upcoming “Love, Simon” soundtrack. Both of their soulful voices blend beautifully over the finger snapping, moody tune.
4. Tinashe feat Future – “Faded Love”
Are y’all ready for a rebooted “Joyride” era? After dropping a handful of pop anthems, Tinashe is continuing the trend with some help again from Future for “Faded Love”. The Stargate-produced nighttime gem is both seductive and hypnotic as the 25-year-old star sings, “Let’s just feel this feelin’/ High up as the ceilin’/ Let’s just, let’s just feel this feelin’/ Let’s just feel this moment/ We can make it last…”
5. Maroon 5 – “Wait”
Adam Levine caught in a breakup mess? It’s nothing new. But unlike the cutesy Snapchat-themed visual, the new version for “Wait” leaves a better impression. Directed by David Meyers and starring actress Alexandra Daddario as the angry ex, Levine finds himself in dreamlike alternate universes trying to win back his former flame. The visuals here are quite impressive with different metaphors interwoven into the storyline.
Of course, that’s not all. Feel free to check out more newly-released music below:
6. Marshmello and Anne-Marie – “Friends”
7. Why Don’t We – “Trust Fund Baby”
8. Drake Bell – “Rewind”
