The Friday Five: 2015 Albums of the Year (Pop)

It feels like we just wrote our 2014 Albums of the Year post about 5 minutes ago, but it’s time to look back on our favorite albums of 2015!   Here are our picks for our top pop albums of the year.  We included 2 EPs because they were too good NOT to and we’re crossing our fingers for full albums from them next year!

1.  Selena Gomez – “Revival”
After a public split from The Biebs, Selena Gomez is back! “Revival” was well worth the wait.

2. Carly Rae Jepsen – “E·MO·TION”
Carly Rae is easily one of the most underestimated pop artists, and one that certainly knows how to make a throwback album that sounds like it came straight out of the 80s.  (in a good way) 

3. The Vamps – “Wake Up”
The Vamps are poised to take over America with their new album and it’s about time – they’re so good!

4. Hilary Duff – “Breathe In, Breathe Out”
Hilary Duff’s 5th studio album was well worth the (long!) wait.

5. DNCE – “SWAAY”
This EP makes us want to sway and dance to every song!  We can’t wait for a full album from Joe, Cole, JinJoo, and Jack.

5. Jake Miller – “Rumors”
This EP was one of our favorites that came out in 2015 – every track is a JAM!  We’re anxious for new music from Jake Miller.

Watch Hilary Duff’s “My Kind” Music Video

Hilary Duff is ready to take over your playlists this summer with her brand new song “My Kind.”  The synth heavy, Latin inspired track is perfect for those hot nights you just want to dance in the Summer rain.   The video follows Hilary from a songwriting session to dance rehearsal, which we can only hope is for an upcoming tour!

Watch the video for “My Kind” below.

Pick up a copy of “Breathe In. Breathe Out” on iTunes or Amazon.

The Friday Five: Summer Albums

It’s Memorial Day Weekend which mean’s it’s officially Summer!  We’re looking forward to all of the outdoor concerts, BBQs, and of course some new music!  Here are some of the albums dropping this Summer we can’t wait for!

1. Canaan Smith – “Bronco” out June 23
We’ve had Canaan’s EP playing nonstop, and earlier this week we got to hear more tracks off of the album at a show in NYC.  This album is going to be GOOD.
Pre-Order a signed copy of “Bronco”

2. Kacey Musgraves – “Pageant Material” out June 23
Kacey is serving up her sophomore album in style
Pre-Order “Pageant Material”

3. Hilary Duff – “Breathe In, Breathe Out” out June 15
We’re so excited about a new album from Hilary that we too have to breathe in, breathe out and keep calm.  Fingers crossed a tour is to follow!
Pre-Order “Breathe In, Breathe Out” on Amazon

4. Thomas Rhett – Title and Date TBD
While we don’t have any official info yet, Thomas is expected to drop his new album later this Summer.  We love what we’ve heard so far, with the funky lead single “Crash and Burn” and also tracks that he’s been playing live, like “South Side” and the beautiful “Die A Happy Man.”
Buy “Crash and Burn” on iTunes

5. Cody Simpson – “Free” out June 23
This will be Cody’s first album he’s done entirely on his own, free to create the music he’s wanted to all along.  Cody and his music are pretty much the definition of a laid back Summer by the beach.
Pre-Order “Free” on iTunes

Watch Hilary Duff’s Video for “Sparks”

Hilary Duff just released the music video for her new single, “Sparks!”  The video was inspired by the app Tinder, which Hilary has admitted to using herself.   Hilary’s recently dyed blue locks also make an appearance in the video, in fun choreographed scenes that throw us back to the glory days of TRL.  Watch the video below!

Hilary’s 5th studio album, “Breathe In.  Breathe Out.” will be out on June 16th.  You can pre-order a copy of the album now!   We can’t wait to hear more new music from Hilary – the album includes collaborations with Ed Sheeran, Tove Lo and more.

The Friday Five: Hilary Duff Songs

We’re so thrilled that Hilary Duff is back to both acting and music!  Her new show, “Younger,” premiered on TV Land last week, and it’s just as great as we’d hoped.   (We’re also  happy to see Sutton Foster back on TV!  RIP “Bunheads.”)  Hilary also has a new single, “Sparks,” coming out next week!  Here’s a playlist of some of our favorite Hilary Duff tracks in the meantime.

1. So Yesterday
Raise your hand if you looked everywhere for that “Everything is Bigger in Texas” shirt from the video.

2. Why Not
This song is actually really great to pump you up to do all sorts of things.  I mean, Why not take a crazy chance?  Why not do a crazy dance?

3. Stranger
From Hilary’s last studio album, “Dignity.”  This album didn’t get enough credit for how good it is!

4. All About You
We’re all about Hilary’s most recent single.

5. The Getaway
More like, here I go again singing this to myself at a red light!

Bonus: Chasing The Sun
Because this video is so accurate.
