Ellie Goulding Releases Album Brightest Blue
If you’ve checked out some of our past articles you’d know we have been anticipating this album since the announcement came that it would be released in the first place. The double-sided album consist of the Brightest Blue side where she explores her insecurities with lovely ballads. Then there is the EG. 0 side that is filled with pop bangers and collaborations with artists such as Swae Lee and JUICE WRLD.
Some other exciting news is The Brightest Blue Experience. This will be a one time pay-per-view experience that will be live streamed from London’s V&A on August 26, 2020. There will be live musicians and a special guest that will be announced later. You can download the album here!

Steve Aoki, Frank Walker and AJ Mitchell Drop New Single “Imagine”
Next on our radar was this amazing collaboration! It is set to be another perfect summer song that blends the electro-pop of Aoki, the dance-pop of Walker and the nice vocals of Mitchell.
“Imagine” is a song about imagining everything that can happen in a relationship. The song somehow makes you envision the person you want to have that love with. Download or stream it here!
Kygo x Tina Turner “What’s Love Got To Do With It” Out Now
This is one of my favorites! Producer and DJ, Kygo, and the legendary, Grammy Award superstar Tina Turner have collaborated to recreate Turner’s hit “What’s Love Got To Do With It.” There is even a new music video that you can check out here!
Kygo, who’s had a pretty busy year already with his album release Golden Hour and his Golden Hour Festival, was very excited to work with Turner. He stated: “I couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with Tina Turner, who is an icon that I grew up listening to. ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ is one of my all-time favorite songs so to have a chance to rework it has been a very special moment in my career.”
Headie One and Drake Drop “Only You Freestyle”
This was one highly-anticipated collaborations. Drake has always supported Headie in his career and artistry. It was amazing to hear that the song arose from “a place of pure respect for each other’s work.” Drake was actually the first to reach out to Headie on Instagram.
Drake sent Headie the beat and once Headie recorded his verse, he sent it back. Drake said “I had to go hard, especially on a track with one of the best drill artists in the world…Scratch that – the best drill artist in the world.” We love to see artists supporting each other. You can check out the music video here and download or stream the song here!
