After scoring another dance hit with “Turn the Night Up,” Enrique Iglesias officially premieres his new single titled “Heart Attack“! The track serves as the second official U.S. single off his upcoming tenth studio album, which is scheduled for release this Fall via Universal Republic Records. Produced by The Cataracs, “Heart Attack” is a thrilling pop number blending soulful piano and a hot dubstep breakdown with Enrique‘s seductive Latin pop sensibilities. It’s an infectious and intoxicating concoction of styles that sounds new while still staying true to Enrique‘s signature sound. I’m really feeling this one! What do you guys think?

The track serves as the official lead single off her upcoming third studio album, which is due out after this year via RCA Records. Written and produced with Pharrell, “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)” is a uplifting disco-inspired number packed with a sensual beat, Jennifer‘s soaring vocals, and a solid verse from TIP. “Working with a visionary like Pharrell was a really special experience for me,” Jennifer told Billboard. “He is one of the most talented musicians of our time and I couldn’t be more proud of what we did together.” I’m loving the throwback feel on this one.

The track serves as the third official single off their upcoming fourth studio album, which is scheduled for release this Fall in the UK via Polydor Records. Written and produced by StopWaitGo, “Disco Love” is a pleasant little pop jam with a sparkling 80s dance vibe, a catchy hook, and a fantastic Britney Spears reference. While “Gentleman” may have not been the big hit the girls were hoping for, “Disco Love” has all the right ingredients to score them another #1 on the UK Singles Chart – I love it! What do you guys think?

Enrique Iglesias: ‘Turn The Night Up’ Video Premiere!

Check out the premiere of Enrique Iglesias‘ latest video for “Turn The Night Up“! The Cataracs-produced track serves as the lead single off his upcoming tenth studio album, which is scheduled for release this Fall via Universal Republic Records. Directed by Justin Francis, the trippy clip is your typical party themed video for a party song affair as you see Enrique hit up a couple clubs with some glam hoe. It’s nothing spectacular but at least there’s blink and you’ll miss it shirtless scene – I’m completely satisfied. What do you guys think?

Amelia Lily: ‘Truth or Dare’

It’s been a few months since we last heard from Amelia Lily but thanks to the internet, a brand-new track from X Factor UK alum titled “Truth or Dare” has found its way to us. The track is set to appear on her upcoming debut album Be A Fighter, which was set to be released in July but was after postponed in order to record some new material. “Over the last few months I’ve been writing loads of new material and I’ve now decided that I need to go back into the studio and spend some more time working on my debut album,” Amelia wrote on her Facebook in July. “I want it to be perfect for you all! I will update you all on my progress, stay tuned.” Sure the delay of the album is probably due more to the fact that singles “Shut Up” and “Party Over” underperformed in the UK, but at least it’s still coming at some point. “Truth or Dare” is quite the pop stomper and I just want more!

Iggy Azalea: ‘Change Your Life’ featuring T.I.!

Following “Work” and “Bounce,” Iggy Azalea premieres her brand-new single “Change Your Life” featuring T.I.! The track is the third official single off her upcoming debut album The New Classic, which is set to be released on October 1st via Island Def Jam. While it’s unquestionably taken sometime for me to really get into Iggy, “Change Your Life” is unquestionably the track I’ve been wanting to hear from her. From the hard verses to the insanely addictive chorus – it has SMASH written all over it. “It’s a big record,” Iggy told Rap-Up. “I think it will be good to have T.I. on that single and just show that we’re together, we’re still family. It’s unquestionably not me trying to make my silent exit from Hustle Gang.” So into this! What do you guys think?

Iggy Azalea will release her new single “Change Your Life” featuring T.I. in the UK on September 16!

Janelle Monáe: ‘PrimeTime’ feat. Miguel – Premiere!

Janelle Monáe slows things down with the premiere of her new duet with Miguel, “PrimeTime“! The track is set to be featured on the 27-year-old singer’s upcoming sophomore album The Electric Lady, which is scheduled for release on September 10 via Atlantic/Bad Boy Records. “PrimeTime” is a passionate R&B love song that finds the duo singing over a slow, seductive beat soaked in sweet harmonies and a seductive guitar solo. The song is a bit of a departure for Janelle considering her last two singles “Q.U.E.E.N” and “Dance Apocalyptic” were both irresistibly pleasant upbeat jams, but it’s a refreshing alter of pace for her. I can’t wait for this album! What do you guys think?
