Citizen Four Drop “Say My Name” Cover

 Citizen Four have been laying low for a while but the guys are back – new and improved!  After Josh Levi’s departure, C4 added a new member, Mikey Fusco, and forged ahead with new music.  The band just released a brand new single which samples the Destiny Child’s song, “Say My Name.”   With Beyonce and Kelly Rowland’s approval, the boys of C4 reworked it with the help of GRAMMY-award winning producer Rodney Jerkins.

The track has a familiar feel but Citizen Four put their own unique twist on it! Listen to the new track below.

Pick up a copy of “My Name (Say It)” on iTunes or Amazon!

Artist To Watch: PRETTYMUCH

If you’re a long time Secret Fangirls reader, you know that we’re HUGE fans of classic boybands – y’know, they ones that harmonize and dance in sync!  From Backstreet to New Edition to NKOTB to Big Time Rush, dancing boybands are a staple in any pop music landscape.

Our latest Artist To Watch fills that dancing boyband void that’s been open since BTR went on a break.   PRETTYMUCH is the boyband that are quickly making a name for themselves despite only putting out music a few months ago!  PRETTYMUCH were assembled by Simon Cowell who knows a thing or two about creating a hit factory. PRETTYMUCH consists of Austin Porter (19, Charlotte, North Carolina) Brandon Arreaga (17, Corinth, Texas), Edwin Honoret (18, Bronx, New York), Nick Mara (19, Manalapan, New Jersey), and Zion Kuwonu (18, Ottawa, Canada) making them a true North American boyband!

After releasing their debut single “Would You Mind” on July 21st, the song skyrocketed to the top of the charts and has stayed on playlists throughout the Summer and we’re sure will continue to propel PRETTYMUCH into superstardom.  Watch the official video for “Would You Mind” below!

Even better, PRETTYMUCH just announced they’re hitting the road this Fall with Jack & Jack on the “FALL2017 Tour” throughout November.  Tickets go on sale Thursday, Sept 21st at 10AM local time.

Grab a copy of “Would You Mind” on iTunes or Amazon so you can sing along on tour!

Artist To Watch: The YRS

The YRS, pronounced “The Years” are an R&B boyband in the most pure sense of the word consisting of 5 guys based in Atlanta, GA (where the peaches grow and the girls speak real slow!)  Dom, Taylor, Jay, Kyle, and Nate are ready to bring their sweet harmonies and perfectly choreographed moves to a city near you!  We caught The YRS when they opened for Austin Mahone in New York at Wester Hall but these guys are already setting their sights of playing much bigger venues on their own very soon.

The YRS not only won us over with their hypnotic dance moves but each guy has a voice as smooth as honey and when you blend all 5 voices together, the harmonies are heaven sent. Dom, Taylor, Kyle, Jay, and Nate got to sing for the legendary Bobby Brown who not only gave them his seal of approval, he joined in!

That time we sang with @kingbobbybrown 🙏🏼🙏🏼💯

A post shared by The YRS (@the.yrs) on

The guys definitely know how to put on a show because we’re pretty sure every single person who caught them opening for Austin Mahone is now a fan.

They also love spending time with their fans after the show, going live on Instagram, and even invited some lucky fans to film a short video for their new song “Party All The Time” on their bus in New York!

Stay tuned for more from The YRS because these guys are just getting started.  Look out for their first official single “Party All The Time” to be released very soon on Cash Money Records!

Watch Citizen Four’s “Want You Back” Video

Our new favorite boyband, Citizen Four, just released the music video for their latest single “Want You Back!”  The video features Conner, Carson, Josh & Austin riding around on four wheelers and rocking some incredibly iconic 90s inspired fashion.   We love how Citizen Four take everything we know and love about boybands (the harmonies, the smooth moves, the outfits) and find a way to make it their own!   Watch the video for “Want You Back” below!
