For your VIP nights at Club ’96…

NewNowNext spotlights new music by upcoming and established artists we think you should know about. Tell us what you think in the comment section.

  1. Bebe Rexha – “Last Hurrah”

    If your 2019 resolutions have been a challenge to keep up, “Last Hurrah” is a fun pop banger and beautifully stylized video about letting go of bad habits in what is definitely a night to remember. This is absolutely the song I want playing on the drive to the club and/or the aftermath to follow.

  2. Gia Woods – “Jump The Fence”

    This bold and catchy pop track comes from 22-year-old queer Persian songstress Gia Woods. It’s a perfect mix of playfulness, maturity, and empowerment with percussive snaps and energetic chants. It’s a good anthem for finding your own path, loving yourself for who you are, and paying no mind to the haters.

  3. Chaka Khan – “Hello Happiness”

    Chaka Khan, Queen of Funk and 10-time Grammy Award winner (talk about a flex), is back with her first album in 12 years. The title track is a tribute to the life-affirming power of music and is a great combo of the sass we love about “I’m Every Woman” mixed with the invention of “I Feel For You” guaranteed to make you groove.

  4. Superfruit – “The Promise”

    Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi of Pentatonix have just released “The Promise” from their side project Superfruit. The song is a majestic and uplifting synth-pop jam with a video starring Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon killing it on the ice. The 80s are back in full effect, and I’m here for it.

  5. SARO – “Die Alone”

    L.A.-based Saro will be releasing his new EP next month, kicking things off with a moody, yet satisfyingly therapeutic electro R&B single. With Valentine’s Day is behind us, “Die Alone” gets us back to the reality of relationship challenges at our most authentic and vulnerable moments.
