    Alicia’s new single is such a BOP! Totally unexpected and I’m loving her musical direction this era.

      Alicia always come through… I live for her music.
      and she’s not shouting in the chorus for once. Yasss for this new AC era!!

      I agree. I love Alicia’s single the most. I’m here for this new direction. I can’t wait to see her perform on SNL tomorrow.

    Alicia Keys new single is giving me life.

    Where is s****** ?

    Alicia’s single is definitely where it’s at! I do like Ari’s new single too. I’ll give JT a pass since this is for a movie soundtrack and not truly representative of his new album. Chris’s song is nice….but I’m honestly over hearing him. He has really oversaturated the airwaves, he needs a break. Maybe take a few years off and go back to acting a little bit.

    Justin and Alicia hands down! Those other whippersnappers can have several stadium seats and let the veterans have the floor for a bit!

  6. Everyone’s A Critic May 6, 2016

    Chris for me. Alicia’s hadn’t hit me yet but I did like it.. From what I remember, no shade!
    But Chris came through with this bop. An anthem for us with situationships LOL. Justin’s is a corny mess

  7. Everyone’s A Critic May 6, 2016

    Hope this is Chris’ ONLY release though! Let me enjoy you instead of having you shoved down my throat

  8. PeaceMaker May 6, 2016

    Sigh, Slow news day

  9. Bravo!! May 6, 2016

    None of the selection at all!

  10. RihYonce May 6, 2016

    Chris & Alicia ! I’m loving both

  11. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? May 6, 2016

    Ariana Grande and Alicia Keys. I don’t know the other two.

  12. No favs, just here for the music May 6, 2016

    I enjoyed Alicia’s the most. It blew all of the other singles out the water tbh

  13. RihNavy May 6, 2016

    They’re all trash tbh

  14. ???Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??? May 6, 2016

    As long as Alicia’s single outsells Timberfake’s and Fistopher’s, then that’s truly all that I care about. That woman just released the song of the summer to relaunch the fire in her career, but I’m not even sure she knows how wildly successful the single is gonna be.
    “Who wants to love somebody like me? You must be messed up too.” -??

    Alicia came through this go round. Justin is immediately elimated because the song is for a kids’ movie. Ari never gives great visuals or backing (promo, performances, interviews) for her music. So I’m done with her. Chris’s song sound like every thing he ever puts out. He (like Ari) doesn’t put much backing into his singles. He just releases them and think they will catch steam. Excited to see Alicia perform her single live!!!

    • RihNavy May 6, 2016

      That’s all folks! ??

  16. What Now May 6, 2016

    AK & Ariana in 2nd.

    • BGKC Formerly RihNavy May 6, 2016

      Not your fake disgusting ass showing your face again. I thought we ended you after you got exposed by Stephy for trolling as the Elusive Lamb, don’t think we forgot, you ESTROGEN DEFICIENT HEAUX

      • What Now May 6, 2016

        If I was really exposed as all of these people, I would have cried my way off the site and when I came back, made more troll accounts and kissed the asses of the same people that dragged me into a nervous breakdown like you

  17. Bee May 6, 2016

    Britney is up next her first singles are always decent can’t wait to hear

  18. B_Roni May 6, 2016

    Justin will probably be most successful since he is number 1 on itunes

  19. JOHNVIDAL May 6, 2016

    Easy. It´s Alicia all the way.
    She is also the better musician of the bunch definitely.

  20. Adelephant (previously HYDROQINONE) May 6, 2016

    Do what everyone is putting out new muisc this year… literally Every artist Big and small are putting out music, I so don’t wanna be on the Grammy comitte for next year, too much to deal with

  21. Gee May 6, 2016

    Alicia came out of the box hard this go round and she also stepped out of her comfort zone and it’s a great start to this new era. Chris new joint is good too but at this point he’s overexposed. Ariana new joint is basic pop geared toward top 40 nothing to run home about. Justin’s new joint I’ll pass.

  22. Dev May 6, 2016

    Alicia’s song is doing it for me and it’s come hand in had with the good weather which has made it sound even better.

    Chris’s song sounds like all of his other songs. Justin is a no and Ariana’s is okay,
    but really i could play “in common” on repeat and have the windows open

  23. Music lover May 6, 2016

    Now I love me some Justin timberlake but
    Alicia. Keys wins this round the sound is so fresh and new for her and I like it.

  24. Royalkev May 6, 2016

    Alicia and Ariana! … I’ve actually purchased music from all 4 of these artists before, but I’m only feeling the new music from the ladies right now.
