NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of March 24, 2017

That’s just Who she is.

Though it’s unlikely that anyone will top Drake this week, unless there’s some secret release just waiting to drop, we do have several fun albums in the mix, as well as some familiar names. Let’s check out all the action right here:

BETTY WHO – The Valley (iTunes)
This pop paradise is ready for some playlist action, and you’ll certainly find some cuts from it on our own playlist below! Her remake of “I Love You Always Forever” hit the top ten in Australia last year, and instant grats like “Human Touch” and “Mama Say” are great slices of what’s sure to be an enjoyable effort. We’re hoping it ends up somewhere in the top 50.

MIKE WILL MADE-IT – Ransom 2 (iTunes)
Producer/songwriter Michael Williams II has created some of the biggest Urban records so far this decade, and for his debut album, he’s bringing out the big names: among them, Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and Rae Sremmurd. Expect a solid week ahead for it.

RAELYNN – WildHorse (iTunes)
This is the former The Voice contestant’s first full-length set, though she did get out an EP during the time at her former record label in 2015. The current single from it, “Love Triangle”, is approaching the top 30 on the Country radio chart.

More albums out this week: Colton Dixon‘s Identity (iTunes), James Blunt‘s The Afterlove (iTunes), Mansionz‘s Mansionz (iTunes), Paul McCartney‘s Flowers In The Dirt (Special Edition) (iTunes), RuPaul‘s American (iTunes), Take That‘s Wonderland (iTunes), Trey Songz‘s Tremaine (iTunes)

More EPs out this week: Boyce Avenue‘s Cover Sessions, Vol. 4 (iTunes), Delta Rae‘s A Long And Happy Life (iTunes)

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week include:
“50,000” and “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You” (Dave Audé Remixes), Sting (iTunes)
“Chainsmoking”, Jacob Banks (iTunes)
“Cold (Hot Shade & Mike Perry Remix)”, Maroon 5 featuring Future (iTunes)
“Deliverance”, Rationale (iTunes)
“Dreams”, Wanderer (iTunes)
“Focus”, Life Of Dillon featuring L. Marshall (iTunes)
