Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Camila Cabello, and Cardi B, are just a few of the many artists who decided to release their singles basically at the same time.
Not so long ago, when two music stars were to release their newest material on the same day was seen as a shady act of competition. Today, in a moment in history where female empowerment is more of a priority than before, the fact that eight major music stars are happily sharing a release date of their singles, it is a beautiful sign of a much-needed sisterhood.
In a matter of two days, several renowned artists have released singles and albums, and of course, the date isn’t just a funny coincidence. Artists know the competition to make their work crowned as the song of the summer has just begun. However, the musicians running have proved to be good sports by showing support and love to their “opponents.”
While thanking her fans for their support via Twitter, Katy Perry didn’t hesitate to send her love and congratulate the other “talented goddesses” on their special day. So, without further ado, here are the newest hits we’ll surely be listening everywhere during the season.
Going back to the pop essence from her origins, Katy Perry is giving us a mellow song about the reality of love. The video accompanying “Never Really Over” gives us a pastel seventies-like fantasy we wish we could live in.
As one of the favorites, Miley didn’t only give us a cool hit song for the season, she actually released a six-track EP named She Is Coming, and oh boy, so did she!
As a taste of her highly anticipated album, Cardi B has given us “Press,” a song she dedicates to her detractors and those who have shamed her in the past.
This time the “Havana” singer has collaborated with Mark Ronson on a song that has the potential to become a massive hit. “Find U Again” is part of Ronson’s upcoming album Late Night Feelings, but fans are living for Camila’s collab.
Featuring Diplo and Herve Pagez, Charli XCX is giving us a modern rendition of the 90s hit, “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls. Just by making a cover of this hit, the song has become an instant success, let’s see how long it stays on the top.
This has been quite a great year for the Spanish musician Rosalía, and her success doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon. Her newest song, “Aute Cuture” will definitely make everybody dance, and hopefully it will be a success in her upcoming Lollapalooza gig.
Together with The Chainsmokers, Bebe Rexha is giving us a collaboration filled with her essence. With the love and support she’s gotten lately regarding her statements on self-esteem and self-love, Rexha is fastly escalating in the popularity pyramid.
“Glad He’s Gone” is the first single of Tove Lo’s fourth album that will be fully released soon. The track is all about friendship and support.
No matter which song goes to the top of the lists, the valuable thing about all this is how the industry has been changing for and by women.
