*‘Just Do You’ is one of the many highlights from ‘SongVersation’, the gorgeous fifth studio album from India.Arie. The song itself is a joyously positive affirmation, an unapologetic triumphal statement of self-belief and inner fulfilment, extending outwards into the universe. It’s a song that is brimming with purity of heart and of life and soul that resonates with each and every person “every adventure needs someone to live it, so what you waiting on?…”
The just released video captures the free spirited lyrical message with a series of genuinely heartwarming and sweetly empowering moments of action. It is cheerfully colourful and upbeat yet importantly gives rise to social stereotypes and challenges their worth #JustDoYou

Another good time coming down the line” set against a backdrop of slide guitar and harmonica. The video clip showcases life on the road with onstage and backstage footage captured during John’s latest world tour.
*Tove Lo is the Swedish singer of songs such as ‘Habits’ and ‘Run On Love’.

*Fall Out Boy have debuted the sixth instalment in the Save Rock and Roll: The Young Blood Chronicles’ video series and is yet another fine cinematic visual. ‘Just One Yesterday’ is a bittersweet pounding drum driven lament that features the glorious vocal talents of Foxes.
*Avril Lavigne has shared the video for her latest international release ‘Let Me Go‘ which features Chad Kroeger. The track is a dramatic, mysteriously moody listen that works wonders for Avril’s sound whilst the video is a suitably intriguing and darkly hypnotic spell casting.
