Don’t piss off the neighbors by blasting any old music on this New Music Friday. There are plenty of great selections in the mix to make both you, and those around you, content. Here are this week’s album and single releases:
- ZAYN — Mind Of Mine (iTunes)
- The first solo album from the former boy bander leads him in many directions musically, but in just one direction when it comes to where he’s headed on the charts. If you said the top, you’re right. Mind is led by the recent #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 called “Pillowtalk”, which is still surging at radio across several formats. How high will it go in its first sales frame? Stay tuned.
- K. MICHELLE — More Issues Than Vogue (iTunes)
- With a reality series airing on VH1, My Life, and a new album in stores today, this Memphis singer is covering the core media outlets quite easily. A single from the set, “Not A Little Bit”, recently went top 20 at the Urban format and looks to keep climbing. This should be her third top ten album in a row.
- ANTHONY HAMILTON — What I’m Feelin’ (iTunes)
- Hamilton’s single “Amen” is yet another top ten for him on Urban AC radio. Shockingly, he’s never debuted in the top ten on the Billboard 200 in his two decades of recording and releasing music. This could change very soon.
