Our favorite Secret Fangirl, Olivia Somerlyn just premiered a brand new single called “O X O.” She’s been on tour nonstop for the past few months, opening for Meghan Trainor and Lindsey Stirling. Why “O X O” instead of the usual “XOXO?” As she wrote on Twitter, “It’s a reverse XOX because you wouldn’t normally give Xs and Os to the people who try to bring you down.” Listen to the track on Spotify below!

Becky G just released a new single, “Can’t Stop Dancin’!” And we can’t stop listening. It reminds us a bit of Selena Gomez’s last album, “Stars Dance,” which we LOVE. We’ll be jamming to this one like we jammed to “Shower” all Summer long. Watch the lyric video below!
Pickup a copy of the single on iTunes or Amazon now! You can see Becky G on tour with Jason Derulo this Fall, and at several Jingle Balls around the country.
Olivia Somerlyn premiered her brand new music video for her single “Parachute” today. The single, which was co-written and co-produced by Nick Jonas, earned Olivia a spot in the Macy’s Rising Star Contest over the summer. Her fans have been waiting patiently for the video and it’s finally here!
Whether we hit “replay” on our AppleTV to rewatch Sam Hunt’s live performance videos, or someone catches us humming 5SOS’s new single, we all have those songs that we can’t stop listening to. This week’s Friday Five is a short playlist of the songs we just can’t seem to get enough of!
1. Jake Miller – First Flight Home
On the heels of his new single “First Flight Home”, Jake Miller announced that he would be playing at Miami’s Y100 Jingle Ball 2014 – something he says has been on his bucket list for a long time! Watch the official video for “First Flight Home” below.
2. Sam Hunt – Break Up In A Small Town
Sam Hunt is being billed as a “soon to be superstar”, and when we caught him opening for Kip Moore on the CMT “Up In Smoke Tour” we fully agreed. Sam is set to play Emporium on Long Island in November and he’s one artist we will gladly go to “almost the Hamptons” for because he’s THAT good!
3. 5 Seconds Of Summer – Good Girls
Jingle Ball is the perfect exposure for the Australian pop punk band to potential fans that might not realize they actually do like guitar driven music! 5SOS are scheduled to perform at a bunch of annual jingle ball festivities around the United States in anticipation of their huge summer 2015 headlining tour!
4. North Of Nine – We Ride
Jackson Guthy’s new band North Of Nine hit the ground running with a single and a video for “We Ride”. While the band aren’t touring just yet, they’re looking to the future and something big could be on the horizon for them.
5. Born Cages – Rolling Down The Hill
Local indie band, Born Cages are a fangirl favorite and not just because of their sleek sound, churning out catchy song after catchy song. Their latest single “Rolling Down The Hill” is getting added to a bunch of radio stations and it’s definitely a fun song during live shows! Born Cages are slated to play two showcases at CMJ in New York this October.
We love the pop-country sound of rising singer-songwriter Tiffany Houghton, who was just added to MKTO’s American Dream Tour lineup! Tiffany has that fresh “early Taylor Swift” sound that we’ve been searching for. Armed with an acoustic guitar and girl-next-door charm, Tiffany’s catchy, well-crafted songs will have you singing along before the first chorus. Tiffany moved to Nashville at the age of 17, and has spent time songwriting and honing her craft. We’re sure you’ll be hearing a lot more from this girl in the future!
Watch the video for her new single, “17 Again,” below, which was inspired by one of our favorite movies,”Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
Tiffany teamed up with ConcertBlogger.com for a performance of “Band Boy,” which she wrote about her weakness for boys in bands after getting home from a concert one night. This song is pretty much every fangirl’s anthem. We especially love the line “fangirls love band boys and band boys love fan girls!”
Secret Fangirls are pleased to debut “GIRL” by Giselle Mynx. The first single from the California native is hauntingly beautiful yet inspiring. The instrumentation on this track is unique and sets “GIRL” apart from the crowd. A steady drum, the steel string guitar, and Giselle’s lovely voice will stay with you long after the song is finished.
Olivia’s music is super fun to dance to and definitely the perfect summer soundtrack. Her new single “Parachute” (co-written/produced by none other than Nick Jonas) is out now on iTunes and Amazon.
Come out to a Somerlover meet up and you’ll know why Olivia is the sweetest popstar to emerge in recent years!
We hope you’ve been voting for Olivia in the Macy’s and iHeartRadio Rising Star Contest — this is the final week to vote!
Our favorite secret fangirl Olivia Somerlyn just announced that she would be joining Big Time Rush on tour once more! This time, in South America! Olivia sang her way into our hearts over the summer and became one of our favorite “dreams come true” stories.
