  1. Diimond Meeks – “Loose Me”

    Diimond Meeks, formerly known as Dezmond Meeks, is an award-winning producer, songwriter, actor, dancer and multi-instrumentalist, known for his over-the-top stage presence, flamboyant style and broad five-octave vocal range—all of which are captured in this rambunctious and infectious anthem.

  2. All Saints – “Love Lasts Forever”

    Never ever did we think we’d still be bopping to All Saints two decades after their break-out hit “Never Ever”, yet here we are—and we’re not even mad about it.

  3. Alyson Stoner – “Who Do You Love”

    Former Disney star and the “little girl from the Missy Elliott videos” Alyson Stoner just dropped this innovated video for her new single “Who Do You Love.” The video uses anaglyph technology to layer several layers on top of each other and can be enhanced with a pair of red and blue-lensed 3D glasses. The openly queer entertainer recently came out in a personal essay for Teen Vogue.

  4. Daya – “Safe”

    Nineteen-year-old singer/songwriter Daya is back with new music with the breathtaking “Safe.” According to a press release, Daya and co-writers Laleh and Joel Little (who both produced the track) penned the song the day after the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017.

  5. Billy Winn – “Seal It with a Kiss”

    Out singer Billy Winn’s “Seal It with a Kiss” from his just-released EP Dreamland is sure to heat up the dance floors this summer.
