UJ

British foursome Union J are back with their newest single ‘Tonight (We Live Forever)’, which is set to feature on their second studio album and is already reaching great success after entering the iTunes Top 100 Chart through pre-order sales alone!

Union J

Union J, who are more popularly known for their time on the ninth series of The X Factor – consists of JJ Hamblett, Josh Cuthbert, George Shelley and Jaymi Hensley (Left to Right), who will be releasing their newest track on August 17th.

Tonight (We Live Forever) is an optimistic and bubbly track, which has the makings of a single worthy of a Number 1 chart position!

This uptempo track is a perfect summer anthem, which we know you will be blasting for a while.

The lads have said: “The track sums up what Union J are about it terms of our sound and it also reflects who we are together – a group of friends having the time of our lives.” – Which is pretty easy to see when watching the incredible music video.

Although Union J’s newest track is completely different to the single’s released from their debut album, we expect the lads to be receiving the same amount of success!

Tonight (We Live Forever) has already raced through the charts before it’s official release, so we have no doubt that this track will soon be bouncing into the UK charts!

OneRepublic – ‘Love Runs Out’

American pop-rock band OneRepublic are back with their incredible new track ‘Love Runs Out’, which will be released in the UK on August 3rd.

The track was originally intended to be the first single on the group’s third album Native, but the release was delayed due to the track not having a chorus written. But the wait has been worth it as the track is incredible and released just in time for the Summer!

If you’ve been keeping up to date with our amazing Playlists of the Week, you would’ve seen this incredible track included in a Playlist back in June!

‘Love Runs Out’ is completely different to the incredible tracks that this chart-topping group have released before and yet it’s just as incredible and catchy as those tracks that we’re sure we’ll be blasting it for a while.

The track’s pace reminds us heavily of Kanye West’s track Love Lockdown, however, singer Ryan Tedder brings a touch of uniqueness with his incredible vocals, which makes this track a touch more addictive to listen to it on repeat!

The tune has a minimalistic, 70s rock and soul vibe driving the track with Tedder showcasing the vocal acrobatics that have made the group a popular household name.

‘Love Runs Out’ is the perfect track for OneRepublic to debut a new sound to their audience as it will no doubt be successful!

The group are incredibly talented and we believe they will reach great success with their newest track and we wish them all the best!

‘Love Runs Out’ is available for pre-order and is out August 3rd!

Richard Rawson ft Tom Parker – ‘Fireflies’

After the disbanding of N-Dubz and an eye opening life style change – Fazer aka Richard Rawson is back with his debut solo single – Fireflies, under his own name, producing the music he always wanted to make.

Rawson’s rap is insightful, personal and alongside the melodic piano undertones gives us a look into the stars past; the highs and the lows, whilst likening his journey to that of a firefly, which leaves you wanting to keep listening to find out more.

“I swear I’m like a firefly,
I require darkness in order to shine”

Fireflies has an extremely catchy and memorable chorus which is sang by ex- The Wanted hottie Tom Parker and is his first solo appearance after the band announced an extended hiatus earlier in the year.

“As I stare across the sky
I see nothing but a million fireflies
reminding me that I can make my light shine
it’s not over, over, over”

fireflies

Tom’s strong vocals bring something that little bit different and exciting to the song, especially as it’s not a collaboration we would have naturally expected, where Tom’s AD-Lib (Improvisation for those who aren’t musically tech-savvy) near the end of the track leaves the audience on a high.

The video is a great addition, showing the light and shade in the song compared to the feelings of the artist and is perfectly executed to portray the strong message of the song.

Fireflies showcases both artistes versatile, solo talents and is a great track that us Brumoters Love!

Check out the video below and let us know what you think!

You can also pre-order the track on Itunes.

Lloyd showcases a new musical direction, a more mature sound and amazing vocal talent on her newest track, which is set to feature on her second album ‘Sorry I’m Late’, which will be available only next week!

Lloyd, who became popular after finishing in fourth place on Series 7 of The X Factor UK, signed to Syco Records shortly after the final of the competition – has spent three years extending her career across the pond and now she’s back home and planning on conquering the UK charts.

And Sirens is just the track to help Lloyd achieve her goal!

Not only is Lloyd’s newest track extremely catchy, but the young star’s fantastic vocals and the track’s amazing power-ballad melody will have you playing the track on repeat for a while.

And if the lyrics don’t already have your eyes watering from the emotion, then the music video will surely do that!

Especially as Lloyd has revealed that the music video for the track was heavily influenced by a childhood event in which her father was arrested when she was only five years old!

The lyrics perfectly reveal how music Lloyd has grown and improved as an artist!

And it’s great to finally see the young star moving away from Swagger Jagger and adding her name to tracks that people can relate to.

We, Brumoters have no doubt that this track will be jumping into the charts fairly soon!

Cher Lloyd is an incredible artist who has only grown over time, so we can’t wait to see what the young talent comes up with next and we hope that she has a number of amazing announcements for her incredible UK fanbase soon!

Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea – ‘Problem’

American pop beaut Ariana Grande has teamed up with the gorgeous Iggy Azalea on her newest and brilliant track ‘Problem’, which features a further collaboration with Big Sean.

Ariana Grande, 21 released the 90s influenced pop track with an urban twist on June 29th here within the UK and is already racing through the charts!

Embedded image permalink

Problem is an incredible track, which mixes Grande’s pop influence with Big Sean and Iggy Azalea’s urban element, about “the feeling of being absolutely terrified to re-approach a relationship that’s gone sour, but you want to more than anything.”

Grande perfectly conveyed the message throughout the lyrics with her immaculate vocals: “Every time you touch me and say you love me, I get a little bit breathless. I shouldn’t want it, but it’s you.”

Embedded image permalink

Problem is to feature on Grande’s upcoming Sophomore studio album ‘My Everything’, which if the current success of the single is anything to go by, it will be racing up the charts very quickly after its release.

Ariana Grande is an incredible, rising young talent with a large number of amazing tracks within her arsenal! And we personally can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

MKTO – ‘Classic’

American duo Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller, who together form the group MKTO are FINALLY joining the UK music scene with their amazing track ‘Classic’, which was released here in the UK on June 29th.

The track has been released in a number of countries, including the US over a year ago, but it’s finally popped across the pond after a year and it was well worth the wait!

However, if you’ve been keeping up with our Brumotions Playlist of the Week, this incredibly catchy pop track has featured in our playlist on two separate occasions!

Embedded image permalink

Classic is an amazing, party, pop track with a great beat that is enjoyable to listen to and certainly to sing along to.

Although the lyrics are considerably cheesy, the message stands out among the majority of the tracks that are currently taking over the UK charts.

The lyrics present a feel-good factor for all the ladies (including those here at Brumotions!) as the two handsome lads that make up the group are telling them they’re one of a kind in this era and they’re ‘classic’ ladies, like Marilyn Monroe and that they will treat them like such: “Ima pick you up in a Cadillac, like a gentleman, bringing glamour back. Keep it real, real in the way I feel. I could walk you down the aisle.”

Embedded image permalink

‘Classic’ is the PERFECT debut track that MKTO could have chosen to introduce themselves to a UK audience and we have no doubt that this talent showcasing tune will be entering the UK chart fairly soon and we wish the lads all the best!

MKTO is an incredible, young and fresh group who we believe will have a great career both in the US and here in the UK!

Classic is available NOW!

Rough Copy – ‘Street Love’

After wowing the general public on the 2013 series of The X Factor with their smooth vocals, fun personalities and street style, Rough Copy are set to burst onto the music scene with their debut single, Street Love!

The London trio made up of Kazeem, Joey and Sterling, now signed to Epic Records, offer a re-working of 80s classic ‘Sweet Love’ by Anita Baker, with a twist in the verses showcasing their new musical style and a lot of personality.

Street Love is instantly catchy and offers a great opening tune, which is extremely memorable, especially if you know the original track – it quickly builds to produce an energetic, party vibe.

However, it seems to fall flat from the initial build and the chorus leaves us feeling underwhelmed compared to that of the catchy verses.

The video, teamed with the song, show the three lads chasing a beautiful woman down the street to no avail, which is completely cliche. However, the lads ensure to show their personalities and the track fits the video perfectly with it’s R’n’B, urban feel.

Overall, this song is bound to achieve success and is easy on the ears, especially with the 80s vibe and has left us singing along with the track on repeat. We do, however, hope that the lads have some more tracks on their way with some of those incredible harmonies that featured during their time on the X Factor.

M.A.D – ‘Shotgun’

With the boyband phenomenon still sweeping the country, there are many young, next generation boybands appearing, wishing to steal the hearts of the teenage population.

Here at Brumotions, we are always on the look out for new music to tell all of you about so you can feast your ears on it, which helped us discover M.A.D, who you can also catch appearing in this weeks Brumotions Playlist of the Week!

M.A.D. for it:  Band members Dan, Michael and Ben.

M.A.D, a trio made up of Dan Lewis from South Wales, Michael Sutthakorn from Northern Ireland and Ben ‘AB’ Pryer from London (Left to Right) – are back with their newest single ‘Shotgun’ after achieving incredible success in the Top 40 chart with their debut single ‘Toyboy’ and their second single ‘Fame & TV’, which were both released and achieved ONLINE!

Shotgun is bubblegum pop at its finest!

The track is likeable with a memorable and upbeat tune, which will leave a smile on your face and is perfect for a younger audience.

However, we can’t help but feel that the song is slightly repetitive and bland in comparison to other songs gracing the charts at the moment. We also notice their newest tune bares a close resemblance to ‘Angel with a Shotgun’ by The Cab.

With that being said, the band have boyish good looks, which combined with their inoffensive lyrics and energetic video with love declarations, leave many girls wishing they could ride shotgun with the band.

M.A.D have already amassed a large online following and are a group to watch out for this year! We are sure they will continue to grow as a band and produce a more mature sound that we are sure everyone will love (including us)!

Shotgun is out NOW! And can be purchased on ITunes!

Showcasing her incredible vocal ability and talented writing skills with the release of her amazing new single ‘Neon Lights’, which features and has been re-released off her fourth studio album Demi.

Neon Lights is a catchy, upbeat electropop dance track, conveying the message of living in the now as there is no time like the present, along with Lovato’s lifelong belief with self-confidence and ‘doing your own thing’: “Baby, when they look up at the sky. We’ll be shooting stars just passing by, you’ll be coming home with me tonight, we’ll be burning up like neon lights.”

The lyrics showcase Lovato’s impressive vocal ability (remember she is ONLY 21!) and the rave-tastic track gets everyone dancing along. Although the single is being re-released, we have no doubt that this single will be jumping back into the charts very soon!

Demi Lovato is an amazing vocal talent with incredible song writing talent to match! She’s a rising talent who we are sure will be taking over the UK in due time, gaining Lovatics in all of us!

5 Seconds of Summer – ‘Don’t Stop’

Every time you release new music, it gets harder for us and you know it, know it, know it!

5 Seconds of Summer are back with their second single ‘Don’t Stop’, following the incredible success of their debut single ‘She Looks So Perfect’, which gained a number one spot in 39 countries and we LOVE their newest single!

The Australian band, made up of Michael Clifford, Ashton Irwin, Luke Hemmings and Calum Hood burst onto the music scene after playing an array of shows – however, they sky-rocketed to stardom after touring with British-Irish boyband One Direction.

We have been following the 5SOS journey before the lads became the pop-rock phenomenon’s they are today and it’s no surprise that they are causing hysteria, leaving girls and boys alike crying, shaking and even swooning over the teen heartthrobs who have stolen their hearts.

But 5SOS aren’t your typical boyband, but that’s why we love them, they each play their own instruments and are bringing back the revival of pop-punk music to the masses breaking the mould and being a band for everyone to enjoy!

Don’t Stop is instantly memorable and the mix of infectious lyrics and perfect vocals have left us signing along for hours on end, it will get you dancing around your room, head banging in the car and even singing it in the shower, it’s a great summer song and will leave you in a great feel good mood.

This is incredibly catchy tune teamed with the music video shows 5 Seconds of Summer’s fun personalities and the idea that they don’t take themselves too seriously as they adopt superhero persona’s to help the world: Dr. Fluke (Luke), Mike-Ro-Wave (Michael), Cal Pal (Calum) and Smash (Ashton)!

Their good deeds range from helping old ladies cross the road, litter picking, saving kittens and beating up ninja’s to save the ‘damsel in distress’ all whilst wearing tights… Oh yes girls, tights!

Don’t Stop is available NOW!

And 5SOS’ debut, self-titled album is available for pre-order!

We absolutely love what 5 Seconds of Summer are doing and if you haven’t seen the video already, check it out below:
