Fifth Harmony has finally released ‘Bo$$’, the lead single of their upcoming full length studio album. The long awaited track was premiered yesterday (July 5) on MTV.
Produced by Ricky Reed, Bo$$ is reminiscent of works by Destiny Child. The song, especially the pre-chorus is very catchy and quite radio-ready.The production on the song is also awesome but unfortunately ruined by cheesy and moronic lyrics. High profile personalities and celebs like Michelle Obama, Oprah, Kanye West and Ray J were shockingly name dropped just for rhyming sake.
Bo$$ is not bad but Fifth Harmony need to do better if they want to be a force in the industry.
Listen to ‘Bo$$’ after the jump….

Anyone who thought Craig David is washed up and finished should listen to his brand new single, ‘Cold’. Absolutely breathtaking and amazing!
After a 4-year-hiatus and seemingly only interested in body building, the 33-year-old crooner is back with an urban jam called ‘Cold’.
‘Cold’ is the lead single of Craig’s forthcoming sixth studio album, ‘Following My Intuition’. The album will be his first record to feature original material since ‘Trust Me’ in 2007.
‘Broods’ has premiered yet another song from their forthcoming LP ‘Evergreen’. The song titled ‘L.A.F’ is the most uptempo song released from the New Zealand pop duo.

Even though ‘Problem’ is still hot on radio and dominating charts, Ariana Grande has decided to move on and release a new single, ‘Break Free’. Produced by Zedd and Max Martin, the 21-year-old vocalist is now experimenting with EDM.
We expected Ariana to move forward and not backward. ‘Break Free’ is generic and a hot mess.com. This is by far the worst single ever released by her since she shot to stardom with debut single ‘The Way’.
The only positive from the song is that she is enunciating better than her other songs.
Ariana Grande unveils the official tracklisting of her second studio album, ‘My Everything’.
The 21-year-old pint-sized vocalist’s album consist of only 11 songs and an intro. One sad note about the album is that it is filled with features. Out of the 11 tracks, an incredible number of 7 are features. Also the much hyped collaboration with Chris Brown was not included in the album.
The album is preceded by the commercially successful lead single, ‘Problem’. The Iggy Azalea-assisted track has so far peaked at No.2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
‘My Everything’ will hit stores on August 25, 2014
