We’re starting off 2021 with releases from some of our favourite artists! Treats from Justin Bieber, Morgan Wallen, Ryland James, and more. If these releases are any indication of what we’re in store for this year: then we can’t wait for the next 12 months!

Ryland James – Blame

Ryland is back with “Blame“! With a new single and a new year, Ryland is ready to top the banner year he had in 2020. He amplified his voice worldwide with the release of his self-titled debut EP, Ryland James. In 2019, he performed in venues across North America supporting multiplatinum star Alessia Cara and bringing crowds to their feet on a nightly basis.

Morgan Wallen – Dangerous: The Double Album

“If Wallen’s sophomore LP sounds like ‘More Than My Hometown,’ country music is likely going to have a new superstar.” — BILLBOARD

Olivia Rodrigo – drivers license

Singer/songwriter/actress queen Olivia Rodrigo released her heartbreaking track “drivers license“. Penned by Rodrigo, she first shared a clip of the piano-driven, alt-pop song on Instagram in the summer of 2020 to incredible fan reaction, which inspired her to go into the studio with producer and co-writer Dan Nigro (Conan Gray, Lewis Capaldi, Carly Rae Jepsen) to finish the track. With its radiant harmonies and kinetic percussion, “drivers license” is a brilliant balance of unfiltered outpouring and graceful specificity.
