Watch: Charlie Puth unveils collaboration with Boyz II Men

With a handful of months left before the release of his sophomore album, Charlie Puth has debuted another new tune from the upcoming record. On Thursday (Feb. 1), the New Jersey-born singer-songwriter unveiled a studio session video for his new track, “If You Leave Me Now.” The song, which is the third track from the record to be released, features vocals from legendary 90s R&B vocal group, Boyz II Men. Watch Puth’s studio session video for “If You Leave Me Now” above.

“If You Leave Me Now” will join previously release singles “Attention” and “How Long” on Puth’s upcoming new album Voicenotes. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), “Attention” has been certified double platinum while current Voicenotes single, “How Long,” is making its way up several pop music charts.

Voicenotes is set to be released on May 11 through Atlantic Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available on Puth’s website here. Voicenotes is the highly anticipated follow-up to 2016’s Nine Track Mind.

In support of the upcoming release, Puth recently announced a massive summertime tour. The Voicenotes tour will kick off on July 11 at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto, Ontario and conclude a month and a half later on Sept. 1 at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida. During the excursion Puth will perform at several iconic venues including New York City’s Radio City Music Hall and Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre.

Prior to embarking on the tour, Puth hit the stage during the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards. The show will broadcast live on Sunday, March 11, from The Forum in Los Angeles.

Listen to the First 2014 Pop Music Mashup

In less than two weeks, we say good-bye to the year that was 2014 and to think, it feels like it was just yesterday that we were bringing in the new year with so much hope.

Band reunions, anniversary tours, new albums, random music news, and much more have kept us busily writing for you guys (old and new followers) and we would like to thank you for taking a couple of seconds of your day to read a post, like it and even reblog it if you have this year.

As the year comes to an end, we are surely going to begin to see many mash-ups of the year’s most infectiously catchy (and most often than not, annoying) songs of the year.

DJ Daniel Kim who puts out his yearly “Pop Danthology” out around this time is at it again with his mash-up of 66 of the biggest songs of the year.

Check out his 2014 year in review which features songs such as Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” Pharrell’s “Happy,” Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off,” Maroon 5’s “Animals,” and many more clocking in at over six minutes.

Listen to the First Mash-Up of 2013’s Hit Songs

2013

UPDATE: One of my favorite mash-up artists, Daniel Kim has recently released his Pop Danthology which features 68 hit songs including “Blurred Lines” and “What Does the Fox Say?”

Since now we have two mash-ups to help summarize the state of music in 2013, which is your favorite?

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

You know that it’s almost the end of the year when mash-ups of all the hit songs of the year start making their rounds on the internet. Thanks to San Francisco’s DJ Earworm, we have the first mash-up of 2013’s hits. The DJ took 25 of the most played and probably on your last nerve songs and combined them together to give us a five-minute look (or sound) at the state of music in 2013.

Check out the video below and lets start the countdown for 2014.
