😻 2021 latest music | A new emotion every week
Jennifer Lopez & Rauw Alejandro | Cambia el Paso
I can’t get over that hypnotic beat! It’s a fantastically executed mix of Pop and Reggaeton, where Jennifer Lopez stands out, as usual, and Puerto Rican Rauw Alejandro shows why he is one of the artists of the moment.
As Jennifer explains “The song is about change and not being afraid to step up, move forward, do what you have to do“.
Talia Mar | Jack
Talia Mar is a singer and songwriter who started her music career taking advantage of her success on YouTube, Instagram and Twitch.
While preparing her first EP, she has left us this little gem called Jack, which is not the name of a boy, but a whiskey 🥃 do you know which one?
No Te Va Gustar ft. Nicki Nicole | Venganza
Uruguayan band No Te Va Gustar has joined forces with Argentinean singer Nicki Nicole to launch a proclamation against gender violence, Venganza (Revenge)!
The song is visually and sonically powerful to create the greatest possible impact, thus raising their voice against one of the biggest scourges of our society.
Jessie Ware | Remember where you are
One of Obama’s favorite songs, and our too 😊
Notice how in the chorus, Jessie doesn’t sing alone, there are many people with her. It’s because the song wants to convey that feeling of togetherness. In our opinion it succeeds with flying colors, being undoubtedly one of the great songs of the year.
By the way, if you were wondering, it is based on ‘Les Fleurs’ by Minnie Riperton.
Martin Garrix ft. Bono & The Edge | We are the people
The UEFA Euro 2021 (European Football Championship) is being celebrated throughout Europe as a symbol of unity. This is reflected in the official theme song, recorded by DJ Martin Garrix and U2 members Bono and The Edge.
We’ve tried to capture those feelings of euphoria, excitement and happiness that surround soccer. I think, in general, people need hope, excitement and something to cheer them up after this crazy year. It’s not normal for human beings to live at a distance and I feel like everyone needs that connection, that unity.
Ed Sheeran | Bad Habits
He’s back! Bad Habits is the first single of Ed Sherran’s new album that will be released in 2021.
Since Ed became a father his life and habits have changed, that’s what he talks about in this song, using a dance rhythm that invites you to dance and that is out of the style that has marked his career so far. But don’t worry, we will still enjoy his ballads in the rest of the album.
Stephen Stanley | Hopeless Soul
Stephen was rendered deaf in one ear at the age of 9 due to an accident. Funnily enough that brought him closer to music, for which he has an innate gift.
With his father being a pastor and him being so devout, it was no wonder he turned to Christian music, releasing in 2021 his first EP ‘Stephen Stanley’ from which we extract this wonderful track dedicated to those who feel bad about something they did in the past. He encourages us to overcome it 💪🏽
Ana Guerra | Tik Tak
Ana is a young Canarian girl who 4 years ago became known in a musical contest called Operación Triunfo. She needed all this time to get to know herself and compose a 2nd album that comes from her guts.
When we do something from the heart, it shows, as in ‘Tik Tak‘, a song that is full of energy and talks about enjoying the moment. Let’s do it! 😃
Built By Titan ft. Moh Mavuso | African Rain
Built By Titan is a Philippine-born DJ who has always been in the independent EDM (electronic music) scene, although as a musical director he has worked with big names such as Jonas Brothers, Adam Lambert, Backstreet Boys, etc.
His songs are always very emotive and showcase a different vocalist in each one. In African Rain we can enjoy the magnificent voice of the young Moh Mavuso.
Rag'n'Bone Man | All You Ever Wanted
The mind-blowing voice of Rag’n’Bone Man is back with ‘Life by Misadventure‘. An album that includes a fantastic collaboration with P!nk ‘Anywhere away from home‘.
The best track on the record is ‘All you ever wanted‘, where he remembers thoese places in Brighton and London where he grew up, but aren’t there anymore.
Beartooth | The Past is Dead
This American hardcore punk band is about to release their 4th album ‘Below‘.
If you are not yet a regular to the genre, ‘The Past is Dead‘ is a perfect baptism where you will listen to the clean voice of their singer Caleb Shomo, along with a very melodic and optimistic metal sound.
Lesley Roy | Maps
The week of May 17 the biggest music festival in the world, 🎙️ Eurovision 2021, was held in Rotterdam, being Italy the winner.
Although she did not have enough votes to quality for the final, the representative of Ireland, Lesley Roy, with her song Maps, stood out for the emotion she prints when singing it.
Steve Hackett | Andalusian Heart
Maybe just the name won’t ring a bell, but if I tell you that he is the guitarist of Genesis, you probably already know him better.
Steve Hackett left the band in 1977, but not the music. After dozens of albums, he returns in 2021 with ‘Under a Mediterranean Sky‘, which includes this beautiful song with a guitar that will move you 🎸
The Veronicas | Godzilla
These Australian twins named Lisa Marie and Jessica Louise Origliasso, started in music in 2005 and since then they have had many hits, including ‘Untouched‘, which is sure to ring a bell.
This year they are releasing not one but 2 albums. The first one, called like this track ‘Godzilla‘, is expected to be powerful. Guitars and synths blaring!
Shinova | Te Debo Una Canción
The Spanish band is skyrocketing with their latest album “La Buena Suerte (The Good Luck)”, released despite the pandemic with 11 fantastic tracks.
As the band explains, they started in 2008, between the sweltering heat of July, the sighting of a UFO and existential doubts. They have evolved a lot since then, but the essential remains, their love for music.
L.L.A.M.A, Ne-Yo y Carmen DeLeon | Shake
The young Andean L.L.AM.A composed this energetic and fun song because his goal in music is to make us happy. Even its name invites to it, Laugh Love And Music Always.
The great R&B artist Ne-Yo and Carmen DeLeon, a new rising star, join him to make this motivational and positive tune. If you have kids at home, play it for them, they will love it!
YIRUMA | Kiss The Rain
This great South Korean composer is a master at the piano and has been proving it since 2001, in all his albums.
His best-known work is “Kiss the Rain” which, despite being from 2003, has been re-recorded with orchestra this year. It sounds awesome and is one of the greatest tunes of 2021!
Willie Jones | American Dream
How does a 26-year-old black kid from Louisiana put such a big spin on a genre like Country? The answer lies in his debut album ‘Right Now‘.
“American Dream” is a shout against racism in America wrapped in masterfully written Country music. The video is not to be missed!
SOEN | Illusion
The new album of this Swedish metal band is called ‘IMPERIAL 🛒‘ and you are going to love it,
The single “Illusion”, even being the quietest track on the record, is as special as the voice of his singer Joel Ekelöf. 5 minutes of absolute enjoyment, that make it one of the best songs this 2021.
Zahara | Merichane
‘Merichane‘ is a term used pejoratively as “the town whore”. It also means “the mouth of ten thousand men” which is how Cleopatra was known, for her supposed artistry in fellatio.
The song introduces Zahara’s new album, called ‘Puta (Whore)‘.
Tom Speight | Everything's Waiting For You
This young British man has been releasing short discs (EPs) since 2006 with high quality songs. You will love the one we have chosen because of the positivism it conveys!
EPICA | Rivers
After almost 20 years on stage Epica managed to compose their most amazing album yet, ‘Omega (ΩMEGA)’, a collection of larger-than-life epic anthems which melodies will live long inside you.
Smith & Thell | Goliath
Lyrics, lyrics, lyrics, this Swedish duo are first and foremost extraordinary storytellers who dress their songs with catchy Pop melodies you can’t get out of your head. ‘Pixie’s Parasol’, Smith & Thell’s new 2021 album, is presented with “Goliath”, a song that reminds me why good Pop moves me so much 🎉
HAEVN | Throw Me A Line
You might think at first listen that this Dutch band makes music to relax, to find comfort, but HAEVN goes far beyond. Get ready to be moved by a captivating blend of melodies and lyrics that turn simplicity into beauty. It’s without a doubt, one of my favourite songs of 2021 and I’m sure it will be yours too.
Jübel | Weeknd Vibe
Jubël plays sublime melodies steeped in summer tinges. They have just released their latest single ‘Weekend Vibe’ as a follow-up to a first EP, “Strawtown”, which I had to buy instantly upon hearing it because it transmits good vibes from all sides 😉
Javy Ramírez | La Frase
When Javy Ramírez said that he wanted to be a musician, everyone told him that only 1 in a million makes it. We can safely say that he is that 1. His 3 first singles ‘La Frase (The Sentence)’, ‘Tu Nombre (Your Name)’ and ‘Quién Robó Tu Luz (Who stole your light)’ are simply wonderful 🖤 Don’t miss his 2021 album, it’s out now.
Tom Grennan | Little Bit Of Love
He convinced us with his first album ‘Lighting Matches’ that he was one of the new British voices to follow, but his latest record, ‘Evering Road’, is going to enshrine him. You only need to listen to his single “A Little Bit of Love” to know that something big is coming. I have a new favourite song, what about you? 😉
EMELIE HOLLOW | Break It Right
Emelie Hollow should be listened to in silence, alone, in the dark. This way her sweet voice fills the space with beauty. She has a new album called “Half the Story”, where she tells us that there is no kind way to break someone’s heart.
Mágo de Oz | Tu Madre Es Una Cabra
Mago de Oz will release their new album “Bandera Negra (Black Flag)” in 2021. It is an album loaded with hooligan rock and good energy, like the second single featuring La Pegatina “Tu Madre es una Cabra (Your mother is a goat)”.
