Here's a sexy, sultry song I featured on New Music Fridays a couple of weeks ago.  It's by new recording artist Mark Johns, and this debut single, produced by Skrillex,  was featured on Billboard, which also named her an artist to watch.  Check out Same Girl...

Earlier today on John's World, I posted a commentary on P!nk's newest, What About Us, and kind of serious, tune. Well now here's a song that's simply nothing but fun.  Check out Raise Your Glass...

Song of the Day - Something To Hold On To - Emily Warren

I've got something a little different for you today, a piano ballad that hearkens back to the likes of Carole King or Carly Simon.  Emily Warren is more known for her songwriting than her singing, penning tunes for such high profile artists as The Chainsmokers, Fifth Harmony, Naughty Boy, Sean Paul and many more.  Well now she's released a song on her own, a tender tune that I liked the very first time I ever heard it.  Check out the beautiful Something To Hold On To...

New Music Fridays: August 18th, 2017 - The Week's Hottest New Tracks

Hello and welcome back to John's Music World New Music Fridays.  This is an above-par week for new music, with some great new dance tracks that are immediately likable on first listen, as well as some new Miley Cyrus, The Vamps, and of course, the Biebs.  Check out this week's picks...

Friends - Justin Bieber, featuring Bloodpop

It's been awhile since Justin Bieber has put anything out on his own, though he's been doing just fine singing along on other artist's songs.  Well, this week Justin releases a brand new single with Bloodpop that's more of the same great pop/dance/R&B we've come to know, with pleasant melodies nice vocals, and an easy to learn chorus.  Take a listen...


Younger Now - Miley Cyrus

The new Miley just released the third single from her upcoming album of the same title, and like the previous two, Malibu and Inspired, this one's a ballad with beautiful melodies and equally beautiful lyrics and vocals.  Check out the tender Younger Now...


Water Me - Lizzo

My favorite new release of the week is fast, funky and it's got a whole lotta positivity going on.  Oh yeah, this one, by full-figured singer Lizzo, is a fun three minutes of funk that got me on the first listen.  Check it out...


Gold - Camden Cox

Yet another funky dance track released this week, Camden Cox's Gold is nothing but.  Very likable, a lot of fast-moving fun with some nice boom-y beats.  Take a listen...


Can't Resist - Halogen, feat. Adriana Gomez & Lub X tpf

I told you this week's picks are full of hot new dance tracks and this one, by Halogen, is another bass-driven dance floor filler with nice dueling vocals between Adrianna Gomez and Lub X tpf.  Very hot tune! Take a listen... 


So there you have it, my top five new music picks for the week.  As always, I hope that you've found something here to whet your appetite for new music, and actually these aren't the only good songs to come out this week.  Here's a list of honorable mentions that I am sure you can find on YouTube if you so choose:

Gravitation - Petit Biscuit
Heatwave - Amber Mark
What We Do - Aexcit
Wicked Ways - Saba Abraha

Check them out...they'er all worth a listen!

Song of the Day - I Feel So Bad - Kungs, feat. Ephemerals

Back in 2016, French deejay/producer Kungs released his debut album, Layers, and the first single from that album would go on to become one of my favorite all-time songs. This Girl is such a great tune, with a chill vibe and a dancey center featuring some really great horny horns.  So when I saw that he'd released a brand new song from a forthcoming sophomore album (More Mess, featured in last week's New Music Fridays), I started to check out that first album.  Here I found another great tune called I Feel So Bad, which has a funky backbeat and vocals reminiscent of something Avicii would do.  Check it out...

Song of the Day - Another Life - Afrojack & David Guetta, feat. Ester Dean

I don't know why I haven't featured this one earlier.  Not only is it a very noteworthy collaboration between two superstar deejay/producers, but it's a truly great song, with nice beats, great vocals, and a killer hook.  Check out Another Life...

Flashback Friday Song of the Day - Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

I know that all of y'all remember this one.  It was all over the place just six short years ago.  Well it came on the radio last night and I immediately knew I was going to post it today.  Still as fun now as it was then.  Enjoy...
