Welcome to Music Monday on Popdust. As a big music lover I’m always in search of a new tune to listen to—and I’m guessing you are too.
Every Monday, I’ll post a new playlist of this week’s hottest songs that I have on replay. In addition to listing the song titles, I’ll include the YouTube videos (so you can check them out) and a link to buy the song/album on iTunes.
Tracks can be from the radio, clubs, television—by mainstream or indie artists, YouTubers, stars on the rise, anything (old to new).
I've been listening to a ton of new stuff lately (mostly new releases). These tracks have been on repeat for the past few weeks. Hopefully, you can take something from this playlist and add it to your list of summer jams.
Here's this week's Music Monday playlist...
1. Does He Know? - One Direction
This is not a new song but it's one of my favorite songs right now. Its tempo is up beat and it's super catchy. One Direction knows how to deliver the good stuff.
Buy Does He Know on iTunes.
This is such a sweet song! British boy band The Vamps teams up with Demi Lovato to put a twist on their Somebody to You track. The original version was great but adding Demi to the track made it a hundred times better. Summer love, anybody?
Buy Somebody to You on iTunes.
3. Maps - Maroon 5
When Maroon 5 said that their upcoming album's sound will be a little bit dark and less mainstream/pop, I was nervous to hear their upcoming stuff. I have a huge thing for pop music and love M5's previous album Overexposed. When I heard this song I was so surprised and blown away. I think this song is my ultimate go-to summer song.
Buy Maps on iTunes.
4. Unbreakable - Madison Beer
Justin Bieber protege nailed it! This song will encourage positive vibes when you're feeling down. This is only Beer's second single and I can't imagine how awesome her album will be. I'm hoping to see some ballads from the star in the near future.
Buy Unbreakable on iTunes.
5. Life of the Party - Shawn Mendes
Canadian singer, Vine user, and latest Island Records signee, Shawn Mendes, debuted his first single Life of the Party this past week. The cool thing is it's part ballad-like, then it becomes up tempo. It's not about partying or a typical up beat song and that's what makes it so great.
Buy Life of the Party on iTunes.
That's it for Music Monday this week, check back next week for a brand new playlist.
