That’s what we asked for, yes! After the successful participation of Glória Groove and Xamã, the Lud Session project won an incredible version with Luísa Sonza. The release brought together the two singers’ anthems in wonderful versions with a live band. The two rocked the vocals of “Tudo Porque Você Mentiu”, “Penhasco” and “De Rolê”. The setlist also featured the super bomb collaboration of the stars, “Café da Manhã”, and a very special tribute to Mc Kevin. The playlist thanks you for this amazing junction!
Cactus always well served! The singer released the track “Xodó”, which, as the name suggests, talks about love and companionship, and still has the perfect rhythm to enjoy during the June festivities. With the production of the successful duo Hitmaker, the song came right after “Solar”, a song that was released in early June. You blinked and Juliette has already secured one more hit. See, how delicious!
Mainha has a new project in the air! “Macaco Sessions Ivete Sangalo” is the EP made available by the singer that has three unreleased tracks, namely “Moral”, “Petit Gateau”, and “O Que Sera de Nós”, a partnership with Tierry that won a music video. “This song is about a fan love, the story of our lives, and Tierry is a perfect interpreter for this song! The voice and the intention are fundamental to tell this story!”, spoke Ivete about the collaboration. And the treats don’t end there, because all the songs in the project will have videos available on YouTube. Veveta always delivering everything!
It came too much! J-Hope is the first member of BTS to release an entirely solo effort after the group announced that they would focus on individual projects. “More” was the single that started the era of the album “Jack In The Box”, showing a very different side of the rapper, who is known for being very cheerful and taking that to his songs, as in the mixtape “Hope World”, of 2018. “As you know, I often present myself with sunny demeanor. So I have a strong desire to show a different side of myself. I personally challenged myself to do this in my current projects. I wanted to show an extremely dark and raw side.”, said the star. And delivered a lot! The song still won a very dark clip and full of special effects. [O post será atualizado quando o lançamento for divulgado]
With it is stylus without error! After “Avenida Amarildo” and “Rua Marizete”, Luan Santana released the third EP from the album “Luan City”, which aims to honor the singer’s entire family.

The work brings the songs “Perigo Noturno”, “Maldito Girassol”, “Celta” and “Habito”, a collaboration with the icons of the sertanejo, Chitãozinho and Xororó.

All tracks will win video clips recorded with a beautiful landscape in the interior of São Paulo. The launch was also part of the celebration of 20 years of Claudinha’s career.
The wait was worth it! The MPB star released “Num Mundo de Paz”, a completely authorial composition that gave a taste of what will be possible to hear on the album “D”. The song marked the return of Djavan, who had not released any new songs in four years, since the album “Vesúvio”, from 2018. The track has already arrived with a super colorful video clip, which showed the singer also rocking the dance. It’s my people, the era of little steps for everyone. Who will play on TikTok?

DJ Zullu, Pocah and MC GW
Is it a punch you wanted? So take it! DJ Zullu called Pocah and MC GW for his newest single, “Movimenta”, an addictive funk that won’t let anyone down.

The project will still count on the participation of Lexa, Valesca Popozuda and MC Danny. “It’s an honor for me, I love Zullu, we have a great relationship! He is from Duque de Caxias like I am and we are very proud of where we came from, so this partnership has everything to work out.”said Pocah about the participation.
After the tracks “Skinny Dipping” and “Fast Times”, the singer released the single “Vicious”. The song has very personal lyrics, so much so that it feels like she’s having a conversation with whoever is listening to the track. “Often, we focus on the other side of the healing process and fail to admit to uncomfortable feelings such as anger and resentment. I don’t touch that side of myself very often, but it’s been a big part of my story for the last couple of years, so I thought it was important to start there on ‘Vicious’.”, said Sabrina. The song is part of the album “Emails I Can’t Send”, which will be released on July 15th.
Tiesto and Charlie XCX
The woman doesn’t stop! After releasing “Crash” and the deluxe version of the album, Charli teamed up with Tiesto for the song “Hot In It”. This is the fourth single from the DJ and producer’s new album, which is increasingly using pop elements. “I knew from the moment I heard Charli’s part of the song that she was going to be a hit. It’s wonderful to see how everyone has reacted to the message of this song. The heat is incredible, and I feel excited to put her out in the world.”, said the artist. It is worth remembering that the singer is confirmed for a show in Brazil in November.
Calvin Harris and 21 Savage
The DJ is increasingly flirting with hip hop and “New Money” is proof of that. The partnership with 21 Savage has a calmer feel, with a lot of influence from the music of the 80s and very different from what the artists have presented so far. The rapper’s striking voice also draws attention amid the addictive beat. The track is from “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2”, work that already has the single “Potion”, collaboration with Dua Lipa and Young Thug, scheduled to arrive on platforms in August. Promise!
To play in the pixxxta without pity! “Why Can’t You Wait” is the newest hit by The Chainsmokers in partnership with DJ duo Bob Moses. The track has a very electrifying beat, one of those that when it plays in the ballad doesn’t leave a person sitting. The collaboration came just over a month after the duo released the album “So Far So Good”, which includes hits like “I Love U” and “Ipad”.
Temperature in the heights! Jason Derulo released a very sensual clip for the song “Slidin’”. In the production, the artist appeared enjoying the summer with the guys in a house that is pure ostentation. It’s a beating of a lot of beauty, so get ready when it’s time to play. The singer also rocked the choreography even in the pool. And do you know who made a point? Jason’s one-year-old son, Jason King Derulo, is the result of his relationship with model Jena Frumes.
J Balvin and Ryan Castro
Let him know! J Balvin still hasn’t tired of promoting hits that will never leave the playlists and arrived with everything with “Nivel De Perreo”. The song, which also features the participation of fellow Colombian Ryan Castro, combined reggaeton with rap in a melody full of energy. “We’re both kids from Medellín, Colombia, and every time I work with someone who shares my roots and my passion for music, it’s a great gift.”, said Balvin. In the music video, the artists appeared enjoying a lot of the part of New York known as Little Colombia, in the Queens neighborhood.
