It’s a great time to be a fan of pop music. In 2017, we’ve seen some of the biggest post stars, including Lorde, Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry and Harry Styles drop new discs that quickly began burning up the charts. But they’re not alone. Cult favourites and exciting newcomers have also been making a huge impact on music this year, from their own albums to shiny new singles.
Three of those artists, including Carly Rae Jepsen, Jessie Reyez and Halsey debuted new music videos this week and we think they deserve some serious views.
“Cut To The Feeling” — Carly Rae Jepsen
Canadian pop queen Carly Rae Jepsen is featured on the soundtrack for the new animated film Leap! with her upbeat pop bop “Cut To The Feeling” as the main theme. Unfortunately, her new video doesn’t even run the full length of the song, but thankfully CRJ already released a full lyric video. We’ll just never have enough CRJ in our lives, so we take what we can get.
“Blue Ribbon” — Jessie Reyez
If you’ve forgotten what a whirlwind breakout year Toronto artist Jessie Reyez has been enjoying, the singer’s new video for “Blue Ribbon” will give you a snapshot. Featuring footage from Reyez’s performance at this year’s Govenors Ball, as well as cameos from fellow Canadian singer Alessia Cara, “Blue Ribbon” provides a snapshot look at one of the year’s most exciting new artists.
The new track will come as a surprise for fans that know Reyez best for her emotional breakout ballad “Figures,” but with “Blue Ribbon,” Reyez shows the many sides and sounds of her music. Thankfully, she’s just getting started.
“Bad At Love” — Halsey
Dropping her sophomore album Hopeless Fountain Kingdom in June, singer Halsey is keeping the hits coming with her second single, the self-aware ballad “Bad At Love.” Teaming up once again with director Sing J Lee, Halsey continues her Romeo and Juliet storyline from the music video for lead single “Now Or Never,” which ended with Halsey escaping a bloody conflict between her group and her boyfriend’s military fraction.
In “Bad At Love,” Halsey is still on the run, now with a new look that includes short blonde hair. The singer finds members of her group to help her evade the police once again, though a reunion with her Romeo will have to wait for another video. Halsey does continue to pay homage to Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet, which inspired Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, picking a desert setting that mirrors Mexico City and wearing a Hawaiian print dress similar to the shirts Leonardo DiCaprio wore throughout the 1997 film.
