Austin Mahone has been keeping us waiting for new music since his “Secret” EP came out last May, one of our favorites of the year. His next single, “Dirty Work,” is expected to drop “soon” and we hope he doesn’t mean band soon! Austin is fully aware of the torture he’s put us through while we wait for new music, so appropriately enough, he just dropped his another new track he wrote with Robert Villanueva called “Torture!”
Listen to the track below and download for free on SoundCloud! We can’t wait to hear “Dirty Work” … soon and hope it continues Austin’s 90s-boyband-esque pop sounds.
The New York Mets couldn’t have picked a better night for the final show of their concert series. It was a perfect late September night that kicked off with hundreds of young dance and cheer squads from the tri-state area doing a fun routine to songs by Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande. Dance Cheer Night meant there were significantly more teenage girls than usual in the stadium – oh, and the fact that Austin Mahone was performing after the game! Between the cheerleaders and the fangirls in attendance, it’s safe to say that it was one of the loudest crowds Citi Field has ever seen (especially whenever Austin Mahone showed up on the big screen).
After the game (which the Mets ended up winning 2-1 in the 9th!), a stage was quickly rolled out behind 2nd base for the concert, which started just after 10:30pm. Austin performed a 12-song set, including an acoustic section that showcased his vocals and guitar playing. And we all know he can dance! The one man boy band showed off his smooth choreography to hits like “Banga Banga” and his latest, “Secret,” which sounds like a 2014 update of a 90s Backstreet Boys song (and is the Secret Fangirls theme song). Austin even invited 1 lucky fan on stage to serenade during “U.” We always knew he was a great dancer, but this was the first time we got to see his choreography up close, and we were majorly impressed.
Austin Mahone Mets Concert Series Set List
1. “Banga Banga”

12. “MMM Yeah”
We can’t wait to see who the Mets will have in the lineup for the 2015 concert series! Besides Austin, recent shows have included Boyz II Men and Third Eye Blind. It’s a fun way to see your favorite artist, and to spend a perfect summer evening with some baseball, music and BBQ (or Shake Shack, or a burger…the food options at Citi Field are endless).
Austin “the one-man-boy-band” Mahone just released the video for “Secret,” off his debut EP “The Secret.” In case you missed Austin on tour this summer, or want to re-live it, the video gives a peek at Austin’s live show. Which means tons of energy, smooth choreography, a tank top, and lots of fangirls. Watch it below!
“Secret” is one of our favorite Austin tracks – we love the 90s vibe of the song, complete with a slow breakdown and a hint of Britney Spears’ “Stronger.” And Austin totally knows what he’s doing: as he recently told Billboard about the EP, “the style I was going for was more of that *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys vibe, ’cause I knew a lot of the older girls like that.” Excellent plan, Austin.
Mahomies in NYC can see Austin this weekend in a performance following the New York Mets game on Saturday, September 27th! Get more info here. In October, Austin will be heading down to South America for a few shows, then heading to Miami to work on his album. We can’t wait. (Keep up the *NSYNC & Backstreet Boys vibes, please!)
Attention Mahomies in South America: your dreams are about to come true. Austin Mahone just announced he is playing a few shows in Brazil in October, including Z Fest with Fifth Harmony! Be sure to stay tuned to AustinMahone.com for ticket, VIP and meet and greet info.

Summer Fridays are in full swing, and we can’t wait for the weekend! Here’s what we’re listening to this week.
1. Austin Mahone – “Secret”
We’ve decided this is the official SecretFangirls.com theme song. We lost it when Austin performed this at Summer Jam last weekend, and are so glad someone caught it on video, because his choreography is ON POINT (as always). We don’t call him the one man boy band for nothing.
2. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – “And We Danced”
We saw Macklemore & Ryan Lewis at the Hammerstein Ballroom over two weeks ago. And we danced, and we laughed, and we cried, and had a really really really good time. And it was such a party that we are still finding random pieces of confetti everywhere.
3. Justin Timberlake – “Not a Bad Thing”
While we’ve always said this song would sound amazing as a 5-part harmony (ahem *NSYNC you can cover this on your reunion tour), it’s just as beautiful with JT.
4. Midnight Red – “Hell Yeah”
Okay, so we had this song on last week’s Friday Five. But we’ve seen Midnight Red twice this week, so this song has been permanently stuck in our heads (and we’re totally okay with it).
5. Victoria Justice – “Gold”
We know that Victoria is focusing on her acting projects now, but we miss her music! We especially love this single, “Gold,” and are hoping that we will still get a full album sometime soon!
