We couldn’t be more excited for the new releases we are about to share with you all. Including Ariana Grande and Sam Smith finally releasing both their new albums, Zach Zoya with his long-awaited EP, and many more surprises!
Want even more new music? We got you covered. Check out our playlist here!
Ariana Grande – Positions
We have been listening non-stop to the latest single since last Friday waiting for this moment, but “Positions” is finally here! The album includes 14 tracks and has collaborations with Doja Cat, Ty Dolla $ign and none other than The Weeknd! This is Ariana Grande’s sixth studio album and probably one of the biggest releases of 2020! Just one year after “thank u, next”, will it live up to the expectations set by that one? (so far, absolutely)

Zach Zoya – Spectrum
Zach Zoya’s highly anticipated EP “Spectrum” is finally here! Including a recap of 2020 with the inclusion of “Slurpee”, “Le Cap” and “In Da Way”, this EP includes three new tracks that will no doubt shape the future of the Montréal artist, including our favourite of the whole project -his collaboration with Angel, “Patience”!

Sam Smith – Love Goes
After announcing the album mid-September and releasing “Diamonds”, the latest single to be included in it, Sam Smith has finally dropped “Love Goes” and we couldn’t be more excited and more proud of how far they have come. Sam has evolved a lot since “The Thrill Of It All” and this album is proof of it: 17 tracks divided in two discs, including both new tracks, released gems and outstanding collaborations we already love such as “My Oasis”, “I’m Ready” and “Promises”.
Listen to “Love Goes” here.
MEDUZA – Paradise (feat. Dermot Kennedy)
MEDUZA has been one of the most prominent electronic music groups of late. Since the massive success achieved by their debut single “Piece Of Your Heart”, the trio is on the rise. MEDUZA is set on leaving us stunned in front of the speakers with no other option than surrender to their enchanting music and “Paradise”, their latest release featuring Dermot Kennedy, is a clear example of this!

Trippie Redd – Pegasus
Trippie Redd has been a guest of this section a couple times these last months, and for good reason: he was getting ready for the release of his album “Pegasus”, which is finally here. This work is a behemoth made of 26 tracks! If you’re a fan of Trippie Redd like we are: congratulations, for Christmas came a month and a half early!

Eli Rose – Alibi
This month, Eli Rose has received two ADISQ nominations: Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Best Album Artwork for her self-titled album, “Eli Rose” released on 2019. While we wait and see if she ends up on top of the competition on her first nominations for the prestigious Québec awards, let’s listen to her latest single, “Alibi” on repeat!

Savannah Ré – Solid
Toronto singer-songwriter Savannah Ré is back after her latest release “Homies” a couple weeks ago, and she’s back in a big way. “Solid” has many virtues, one of them being an exceptionally well-crafted music video! We were invited to the set of this music video, so do not hesitate to read the whole journey here! Perhaps with Savannah’s music on the background?

Soran – Until The Day I Die
Soran is back, and we’ve missed him. Quoting the young artist himself, this song is a celebration for his mother and he’s really excited that we can finally hear it (❤️). This is a new beginning for Soran and on our end, we are extremely excited for everything he will bring to the world! There is such a bright future waiting for him.

Virginia To Vegas – don’t wake me, i’m dreaming
Not long after the release of “Palm Springs (the way you make me feel)”, Virginia To Vegas is here with his latest EP, “don’t wake me, i’m dreaming”. This is his second EP of 2020 following after “a constant state of improvement.”, meaning that this man is not going to rest until our needs for outstanding music are entirely satisfied!

BENEE – Plain (feat. Lilly Allen & Flo Milli)
BENEE, 2020’s indie pop phenomenon and New Zealand’s platinum sensation, released this week her latest single, “Plain (feat. Lilly Allen & Flo Milli)”. Of the collaboration, BENEE says, “I wanted to make it a song someone could listen to when they find out their ex is with someone new. The feeling sucks, so I wanted ‘Plain’ to make ya feel like you have the upper hand. Lily and Flo Milli both have such cool sass, and both their verses really elevated the track!”

Liam Payne – Naughty List (with Dixie D’Amelio)
Liam Payne joined forces with TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio to create his own “Naughty List”. This is Liam’s second Christmas track as a solo artist, following last year’s ‘All I Want (For Christmas)’ taken from his debut solo album ‘LP1’.
Liam said: “I love making TikTok videos and have really enjoyed connecting with the community. Everyone on TikTok is so creative and I love seeing all of the ways they use my music in their videos which is why I decided to release ‘Naughty List’ on TikTok first. My fans are the best and I can’t wait to see all of them using ‘Naughty List’ in their videos.”
