Fridays can be overwhelming for pop fans....

Avicii, the Swedish DJ behind 2013’s “Wake Me Up” and last year’s Rita Ora-assisted “Without You,” was found dead today (April 20). The artist, real name Tim Bergling, was 28. His publicist Diana Baron confirmed the news and released a statement requesting privacy for his family at this time. “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” she said. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

The cause of death is currently unknown. In 2016, Bergling announced plans to stop touring, citing health problems and the exhausting schedule. “Two weeks ago, I took a drive across the U.S. with my friends and team, just to look and see and think about things in a new way,” he said in a statement. “It really helped me realize that I needed to make the change that I’d been struggling with for a while.” Since then he has shifted his focus toward releasing music including his 2017 EP, AVĨCI (01). The music world is reeling as fans and collaborators take to social media to express their sorrow about the loss.

Sweden consistently churns out some of the best and brightest voices in pop music, and Clara Mae is no exception. After writing with the likes of David Guetta and Tiesto and appearing in a late incarnation of Ace of Base, the 26-year-old found breakout success on Kream’s “Taped Up Heart” in 2016. Last year she dominated streaming services with the release of her pensive “I’m Not Her,” and she maintained momentum into the new year with “I Forgot.” The bittersweet anthem is about rekindling things with an ex only to recall why you broke up in the first place.

“Realized why I left you in a hurry. When I’m close to you everything is blurry. For a second I thought you loved me. For a second I forgot,” she announces over a sugary production on the earworm-worthy chorus. The diva already rolled out a neon-drenched video in which she brings the lyrics to life. Today (April 20), she is taking things one step further with the unveiling of a stripped back live performance video. Dressed in a chic coral tracksuit, Clara highlights her vocals as she performs in a cool-hued room. The new arrangement imbues the track with a sense of wistfulness. While the original production sounds like something of a kiss-off anthem, the latest interpretation highlights her second heartbreak. Well-shot and brilliantly performed, the video is a must-see.

“I Forgot” is a standout release, and part of the reason is because the content...

Liam Payne is rapidly becoming one of the most consistent members of One Direction as he moves further into his solo career. After netting a top 10 hit in both the US and the UK with his urban anthem “Strip That Down” right out of the gate, he has honed his craft with each release. Today (April 20), the 24-year-old teams up with reggaeton superstar, J Balvin, on his searing new single, “Familiar.” And it is easily his best track yet. The Latin-tinged crossover hit is sure to storm the charts across the globe and may become his most successful release to date.

On the track, the former boy bander delivers some flirty lyrics as he attempts to win over a flame at the club. “It’s simple. You dip low. Your hips roll; you do the Calypso. An intro is all that I need,” Liam seductively purrs over the frenetic production. His vocals are velvety and have rarely sounded more enticing. J Balvin adds some additional swagger, and the stuttering chorus is sure to be stuck in your head after one listen. “Can we get famili-famili-famili-familiar? I’m feeling, I’m feeling, I’m feeling, I’m feeling ya. What’s on your mind for later tonight? Let me be the one to fill it up.” It is impossible to not want to sing along.

Things are looking very good for Liam right about now. His tropical-inspired anthem “Bedroom Floor” missed the top 20 in his home country and...

The Chainsmokers are hitting their stride with the release of their Drew Love-assisted new single, “Somebody.” Arriving today (April 20), it is the pair’s strongest release in 2018 and boasts one of their most restrained productions to date. Although Alex Pall and Drew Taggart have helmed club-ready numbers and are tinkering with an alt-rock edge recently, their latest is a more introspective moment. On it, Love and Taggart trade off vocals. Singing about their desire to make a name for themselves, it is a refreshingly honest moment. “In a town full of fancy cars and crowded bars and supermodels, looks exactly the way it did inside my head when I dreamed about it,” Love sings in a sweet falsetto on the chorus.

However, he realizes he needs more than physical possessions. “All the things I could live without. I need it now, cause they’re all around me. Only thing that I can’t afford is to lose myself tryna be somebody.” Taggart comes in on the verses, and his voice effortlessly compliments their featured vocalist as he delivers a cautionary tale. “You should’ve known better than to listen to your heart again,” he warns. The production twinkles over the soundscape. Of course, the duo included a bass-heavy drop, and it adds an unexpected level of dimension to the mournful keys and atmospheric synths.

“Somebody” will join the previously released “Sick Boy,” “You Owe Me” and “Everybody Hates Me” on the pair’s forthcoming sophomore album....

The day has finally arrived! After weeks of anticipation, Ariana Grande is officially kickstarting a new era with the release of her single “No Tears Left To Cry.” The track touches down today (April 20) and is likely to dominate the charts through the summer. Boasting an empowering message about overcoming heartbreak, the pop princess hits all the right notes. Opening with an aural production and her heavenly vocals, it rapidly transforms into a vibey dance floor filler. “Right now I’m in a state of mind I wanna be in like all the time. Ain’t got no tears left to cry,” she coos before the beat picks up.

Things build as she moves into the chorus and leaves her pain in the past. “I’m pickin’ it up (yeah), I’m pickin’ it up (yeah). Lovin’, I’m livin’, so we turnin’ up.” The Dave Meyers-directed video has arrived as well. In it, the “Side to Side” diva serves serious looks and defies gravity as the camera sweeps through a city. With her platinum hair in a long braid, the 24-year-old is stunning in a green gown as she reclines on the ceiling in a breathtaking manor. Later she and a group of dancers serve up some choreography on the side of an austere skyscraper, and Ari executes some gymnastic feats on a fire escape. As things come to a close, the sun rises on a new day for the icon.

Billie Eilish recruited Khalid for her striking new single, “Lovely.” Released today (April 19), it is a stripped back ballad. With production from the 16-year-old’s brother, FINNEAS, the collaborators deliver some of their most soulful vocals over heartrending strings and atmospheric production. Despite its uplifting title, the lyrics allude to the duo attempting to overcome a serious depression. “Thought I found a way. But you never go away,” they lament on the opening lines. Things get even more hopeless as they move into the chorus. “Isn’t it lovely, all alone? Heart made of glass, my mind of stone. Tear me to pieces, skin and bone. Hello, welcome home.” The pair managed to channel the pain into something beautiful, and they may have a serious hit on their hands.

In an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1, Billie explained the inspiration behind the track’s title. “We called it that because the song was sort of really freaking depressing so then it’s like oh, how lovely,” she said. “Just taking everything horrible like you know what this is great. I’m so happy being miserable.” She also opened up about working with Khalid and how the track organically came together. “One thing that I’ll say is that when we wrote this actually song what was cool about it was that it wasn’t like we’re going to the studio and going to write a hit, you feel me. It was like hey come over, let’s hangout. He just came over...

Lady Gaga is putting in the time behind the scenes to make sure her new studio album is filled with hits. She confirmed that she began working on a follow-up to 2016’s Joanne in an August interview with Entertainment Weekly and has since been seen in the studio with frequent collaborator DJ White Shadow. The pair have crafted frenetic hits together including “Born This Way,” “Edge of Glory” and “Applause.” More recently, they worked together on Mother Monster’s EDM-laced Coachella anthem “The Cure.” Yesterday (April 18), she seems to have confirmed that she added a new name to the list of producers on the highly anticipated LG6: German producer Boys Noize.

The producer and DJ took to Twitter to announce Gaga had an in-studio mishap and confirmed a collaboration in the process. “Lady Gaga spilled water over my modular system,” he tweeted. Not to be outdone, the 32-year-old pointed out that she saved the day. “But then I resurrected it with a blow dryer it was a christening,” she announced. Adding to the growing excitement, Boys Noize confirmed that the modular system “spit out beautiful weirdness” after it came back to life. Fans are assuming this is an allusion to a new hit they worked on together.

It seems more likely every day that the pop icon will be leaving behind the Americana-inspired sound that inspired Joanne in favor of a return to her sparkling pop roots. Since unveiling a stripped back...

Shakira and Maluma join forces for a sexy photoshoot in the latest edition of Billboard. The Colombian superstars smolder on the cover of the publication’s Latin issue. Dressed in distressed denim and a white tank, the 24-year-old reclines on a sofa while Shaki stuns in all black lace and leather. The cover reads “Watch the Throne,” an allusion to their stunning dominance of charts and their ability to always be on the cutting edge of emerging trends. Shot by Ruven Afanador, the remaining photos are equally striking with the duo delivering seemingly endless poses. Each picture resonates with warmth, and based on previous collaborations on “Chantaje” and “Trap,” we already know the twosome have perfect chemistry.

Released today (April 19), the accompanying interview highlights their chemistry and discusses their thoughts about emerging on the scene as Latin artists. Maluma was very candid about the opportunity to hit the studio with the 41-year-old icon. “I felt very proud because this was an opportunity for me to learn. I’m a new talent. My musical career is 6 years old. That’s nothing. And to go to Barcelona and meet with her, it was a beautiful experience,” he gushed. Not to be outdone, the “She Wolf” siren shared some positive reflections about her experience with him. “Maluma is one of the most talented people I’ve met. He has this mental agility to write lyrics, melodies, and the best thing is, we always agree.” Laughingly, she added that may be due...
