Lauv Releases New Single,”Mean It” ft. LANY

Lauv and LANY are two rising artists to watch in the new year and they just teamed up on a brand new single, “Mean It.”  Lauv is gearing up to drop his 21-track debut album ~how i’m feeling~ on March 6th, 2020 and LANY are back in the studio writing and recording their third studio album set for a Summer 2020 release date.

Lauv said on the collaboration, “I started ‘Mean It’ from the perspective of what I thought somebody might want to say to me (I’m not perfect and I’ll be the first to admit it). Paul and I had been talking about working together for a long time, then one day I texted him the idea for the song and it just clicked. So we all got in the studio and had a grand ol’ time finishing the record. I’ve been a fan of LANY for a long time, and I think it’s a perfect blend of our two sounds, so I’m super stoked and honored to have this song together.”

Listen to “Mean It” on Spotify now!

Pre-order a copy of Lauv’s debut album ~how i’m feeling~ HERE that includes special pre-order bundles with stickers, exclusive merch, vinyls, and more. Don’t forget to pre-save the record on Spotify and Apple Music!

DNCE Release Debut Track “Cake By The Ocean”

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 2 years since the Jonas Brothers’ breakup.  Since  that tragic day in fangirl history, we’ve seen Nick J successfully launch a solo project with hit singles like “Chains” and “Jealous.”  But what about Joe?  While he’s proved that he’s very good at internet, he’s kept a lower profile since the bands demise (at least music wise).  We’ve been hoping for a comeback and are so excited that Joe is officially back, this time with his new band, DNCE!  He’s joined by ex-Jonas Brothers drummer Jack LawlessJinJoo Lee and Cole Whittle.

Their first single, “Cake By The Ocean,” premiered on Z100 last night.  It’s strange and catchy in the best way, and is nothing short of Joe’s ticket back to the top of the charts.  It’s so good in fact, that Z100 broke all the rules of radio and played it twice in a row.   Listen to the track below!

Z100’s Jingle Ball All Access Lounge with Shawn Mendes, Before You Exit, Rixton & More

Z100’s Jingle Ball is by far one of the biggest concerts of the year – and one of the hardest to score tickets to.   If you didn’t manage to snag a pair, you still have the chance to see some big names perform at the Z100 All Access Lounge before the concert – for free!   The party will take place from 12pm to 6pm at Hammerstein Ballroom, on December 12th.   The All Access Lounge features performances throughout the day, interactive games, and a chance to win Jingle Ball tickets or meet and greets with some of the artists.

Since it’s a free event, we’re sure it will fill up fast so be sure to get there early!  The first 200 people in line with a Coca Cola product (specifically a 16 or 20 oz) will be able to cut the line and enter first.  Sounds like a fair trade, especially since you’ll need the caffeine!   Check out the lineup and all the info below.

Austin Mahone to Release Debut Album “The Secret” May 27th, Heading Out on Summer Tour with The Vamps!

It may be Austin Mahone’s 18th birthday today, but he surprised everyone by giving US a present!  Austin called into Elvis Duran to share the news that his debut album will finally be released on May 27th!!   The album, titled “The Secret,”is one of our most anticipated of the year.  We love all of Austin’s singles, and his 90s pop influences, so we can’t wait to hear it!

As if that wasn’t enough, Austin also announced that he will be heading out on a summer tour!  We caught the one-man boy band at Hammerstein Ballroom on the MTV Artist To Watch Tour back in March, and were majorly impressed.  It’s hard to believe that he’s going from small venues to arenas in such a short time!

Even more exciting?  Austin’s bringing The Vamps, one of our favorite new bands, on tour with him!

Tickets go on sale next week!  Members of Austin’s fanclub, Mahomie High, can access an exclusive pre-sale starting on Tuesday, April 8th at 10am.  Join now if you haven’t already!  (We are usually against fan names, but Mahomies is just awesome).  He’ll also be having VIP packages, so stay tuned for details on how you can meet Austin!  Check out our fangirl handbook for advice on how to make the most of your meet & greet.

But wait, there’s more!  All concert goers will get a copy of Austin’s album, “The Secret,” with every ticket order!

Austin Mahone Z100 New York Jingle Ball

Last night, Austin Mahone performed at Z100’s Jingle Ball to a sold out crowd at Madison Square Garden.

The “Banga! Banga!” singer wowed in a holographic suit that *NSYNC would have been proud of.  We can’t wait for his debut album, which he says has influences of 90’s boy bands like *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys.  (We don’t call him the one man boy band for nothing!)

It was Austin’s first performance at MSG, and we are sure we’ll be seeing him there again in the future.

Check out the full Z100 Jingle Ball Gallery for more from your favorite performers.
