Avicii – AVĪCI
Release Date: 10 August 2017
In Buddhism, ‘Avīci’ is also is the lowest level of the ‘hell’ realm, into which the dead who have committed grave misdeeds may be reborn.
While seemingly morbid, it might be apt to describe the renowned DJ’s absence. Following his decision to stop touring, it has been awhile since anyone has heard music from him. For someone as passionate about his music as Avicii is, it must have been torturous.
Current Hot Singles:
Selena Gomez ft. Gucci Mane – Fetish
While the title of the track might be considered slightly risqué, Selena uses the word to mean an addiction – “you’ve got a fetish for my love”, as she sings in the chorus.
The accompanying music video caused a stir among viewers. “I love the video because it shows the very dirty, gross and weird love you can have towards someone,” she explains.
Demi Lovato – Sorry Not Sorry
It has been awhile since we’ve heard anything from Demi but her latest track proves her unapologetic return – unapologetically fierce, that is.
Detractors might say it’s too brash for the starlet but we think its bold and true to her survivor spirit. You go, girl!
Zedd & Liam Payne – Get Low
The two artists have concocted the perfect formula for a banging summer anthem. Coupled with a wanderlust-inducing video, it takes a lot of willpower to not drop everything and buy tickets to the nearest music festival.
We’ll settle for living vicariously through this track, playing it on repeat and singing along to the fun-loving lyrics.
Mick Jagger – Gotta Get A Grip
Mick Jagger is doing a state of the nation address – via new tracks rush released this week.
‘Gotta Get A Grip’ is an urgent response to what he calls “confusion and frustration with the times we live in”.
He explains: “The message I suppose is – despite all those things that are happening, you gotta get on with your own life, be yourself and attempt to create your own destiny.”
