The first song is Cher Lloyd with her song “Activated.”
Cher Lloyd took a break from music for two years. She is back with her third album.
Activated is the first single from her third album. This song has some strong language in it, but the video has over 4 million views. I have to say this is something quite different from Cher’s previous music. You can see that she has matured and is definitely bringing something new to this album. This song for me is out of my comfort zone, but I have to say I kind of like it. I can’t wait to see what more she has to release for her new album.
The second song is Katy Perry with her song “Rise.”
Katy Perry released this song and all I can say it’s a huge hit. She said that she wrote this song a while ago, but never released it until this year when she thought it was a good time to release it. Her video has over 70 million views. It’s a vulnerable yet powerful song and I have to say I loved watching the video and love the song.
The third song is Ariana Grande ft. Nicki Minaj with her song “Side to Side.”
Side to Side is the second single released this year by Ariana from her new album “Dangerous Woman”. Dangerous Woman is the third album of Ariana. The album was originally to be titled Moonlight and had the song “Focus” as the intended lead single. However, after finishing another track on the album, she decided to change the album’s name to Dangerous Woman and removed “Focus” from the album’s track list, except in Japan, and the album’s title track eventually replaced it as the lead single. The Side to Site music video has over 200 million views. I watched the video and I have to say I like the video and the beat, but even though I liked the video, it’s still a bit too sexy for my taste.
The fourth song is Lady Gaga with her song “Perfect Illusion.”
Joanne is the upcoming fifth album by Lady Gaga. Perfect Illusion is the first single from her new album. The album is supposed to be released in October. I am no big fan of Lady Gaga, but after hearing about this song multiple times, I was curious. I decided to go and watch the video. I have to say I was very surprised to see this new phase of Lady Gaga. This is something very different than what she normally releases. Of course there were a few scenes that you would say “that is so Gaga” to, but I have to say I liked the music and video. Her video Perfect Illusion has over 34 million views.
The fifth song is Fifth Harmony with their song “That’s My Girl.”
Fifth Harmony’s “That’s My Girl” is the third single released this year from their second album 7/27. Just like Work from Home and All In My Head, That’s My Girl also became avery popular song in a short amount of time. The video has over 41 million views. I couldn’t stop listening to or watching the video. Not only does the song have a catchy beat, but it also has a powerful message for woman. I loved the song very much. Out of all the songs, this was definitely my favorite.
These songs are definitely popular for a reason. Either because they can be controversial, because they are a change from the artist's typical songs, or because they are very powerful songs. Whatever the reason, I had a nice time listening to them. I would also definitely recommend you to watch their videos. So tell me, have you listened to these songs or have you watched their videos?
