#NewMusicMonday: Bop to Molly Kate Kestner's "It's You" + Ellie Goulding's "First Time"
Happy May! Spring is in full swing, and that means you need some new tunes to set the mood. Luckily, Kygo and Ellie Goulding, Zach Clayton, Molly Kate Kestner, Ashley Brinton, Aja9 and Matthew Koma just dropped some tunes that you’ll want to blast all month long. Get ready to sing along, and check out the songs below!
Molly Kate Kestner's single “It’s You”
This soulful third single release from Molly Kate Kestner is the breakup anthem you didn’t know you needed. Co-produced by Ryan Tedder, OneRepublic’s lead vocalist, “It’s You” showcases Molly’s soaring vocals and honest lyrics, making it the perfect song to belt out in the shower.
Ashley Brinton’s music video for “I Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love"
This up-and-coming pop sensation’s single “I Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love” is an ode to teenage friendship and love, so *of course* we love it. This catchy track is just the beginning for Ashley though—look out for some more insanely replayable music coming from her later this year.
Aja9 and Gazzo’s single “Heart Won’t Beat”
Shot into the spotlight at 10 years old after winning a cover competition, Aja9’s single with EDM producer Gazzo marks her first *real* release. Aja9 told us, “I have never released an original song before, only covers, so this is really exciting for me. And because it comes out on my 13th birthday, that makes it extra special!” Seems like only the beginning for this talented artist.
Kygo and Ellie Goulding’s “First Time”
From Norwegian artist Kygo and British singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding comes the new song “First Time.” The track's nostalgic lyrics are sure to resonate with you, and the tropical dance beat will keep you bouncing way into the summer months.
Matthew Koma’s single “Dear Ana” Ft. Jai Wolf
With a synth line from producer Jai Wolf and Matthew Koma’s smooth vocals, this song is just the right mix of heavy lyrics and sweeping production. Check out the slow-rolling, touching ballad above.
Zach Clayton’s Kick It With Me EP
You might know Zach Clayton from YouNow, Musical.ly or even his Valentine’s Day single “Odd Petals.” No matter where you know him from, though, we know you’ll be singing along to his latest EP Kick It With Me and its title track above.
