Release Radar Is A Weekly Roundup Of Artists Who Topped The Charts, Dropped New Music, Or Finally Released That Much Anticipated Album, Just In Case You Missed It.

Sabrina Carpenter — “Sue Me (Remixes),” EP

Sabrina Carpenter released the original version of “Sue Me” last fall. Now, an album of remixes has dropped (which is increasingly popular for hit tracks). The standout track from the remixes album is the “Sue Me – Marian Hill Remix.” Marian Hill adds a slowed-down electronic beat to the unapologetically confident song. The song goes from dance club track to easy-listening song to relax while lounging on the beach or couch. The synth drum beats carry the track throughout and work around Carpenter’s powerful voice. “Sue Me – Marian Hill Remix” turns up the bass creating an electropop masterpiece.

Avril Lavigne — “Dumb Blonde (feat. Nicki Minaj),” Single

Early 2000’s punk-pop princess is back in the music scene with her new album, “Head Above Water.” Lavigne teams up with female rapper Nicki Minaj for the song “Dumb Blonde.” The song is reminiscent of Lavigne’s early music days — a no-nonsense feminist anthem. Despite the song’s powerful message, “Dumb Blonde,” with its prominent drumline and cheering-like chorus, is the kind of song that would work well in a Disney tween flick. Nicki Minaj’s short and sweet verse adds a change of pace and tone.

Anna Shoemaker — “East Side Too,” Single

With a 2017 Firefly music festival appearance and a spot on the 2019 SXSW lineup, the indie folk-pop singer from Philadelphia is quickly making a name for herself in the music world. Shoemaker released the “East Side” EP last fall and is back with a remix of the title track featuring rapper TYLERxCORDY. The slow-paced and introspective song highlights the singer-songwriter’s talented voice, while the lyrics explore the qualms of starting a new relationship. Shoemaker also released a video for “East Side Too.”

Juice Wrld — “Robbery,” Single

Juice Wrld continues to lament about being heartbroken with his newest release “Robbery.” He spits bars with lines like, “she told me to put my heart in the bag and nobody gets hurt,” over a beat consisting of piano chords and some drums. The “Robbery” video brings the melancholic lyrics to life as the rapper watches the person he is in love with get married. Juice Wrld is up for a chart-topping 2019: he will headline the iHeartRadio fest in Las Vegas on September 20–21, his latest album, “Deathrace For Love,” drops March 8 and he will be touring North America. Keep an eye on for tickets.

Bebe Rexha — “Last Hurrah,” Single

Fresh from earning multiple Grammy nominations, the singer dropped a new song “Last Hurrah.” Rexha sings about alcohol, nights out and bad relationships, but took to Twitter to say the lyrics were actually inspired by a friend who was supposed to be on a diet and ate a piece of cake saying “this is my last hurrah.” With its powerful message and a beat that will get anyone up and dancing, “Last Hurrah” is bound to be a radio hit. We can’t wait to see if Bebe Rexha plans to drop more new music in 2019.
