Battle of the New Singles: Lady Gaga, Mary J. Blige, Bruno Mars, & More

Published: Friday 7th Oct 2016 by Rashad

Let us tell it, the last three days alone have seen Fall 2016 prove itself infinitely hotter than the summer was.  With drops from Jojo, Lady Gaga, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, and Bruno Mars, 3rd quarter is on its way to giving music fans more than they can handle.

And, as if these heavy hitters aren’t enough, the past few weeks have seen contributions from the likes of Solange and The Weeknd that are threatening some real shakeups on the charts – the latter already hoisted to the top 3 of the Billboard Hot 100.

Sales and statistics aside however, we’re coming to you – That Grape Juice faithful – to ask:  who brought the heat? Tuck in below and let us know:

The Weeknd


John Legend

Alicia Keys

Mary J. Blige

Bruno Mars


Lady Gaga

    Bruno is literally skyrocketing to debut in the top 10 right now. Abel HAS to he pissed beyond belief. Bruno’s album is gonna outsell his too, but that should be expected by now.

    • JOHNVIDAL October 7, 2016

      Who is Abel? Honest question.

      • Paulo October 7, 2016

        The Weeknd

      • JOHNVIDAL October 7, 2016

        Ok thanks.

      • LmfaoHoe October 7, 2016

    Gaga is winning for the ladies, The Weeknd wins for the men.

    • Huh? October 7, 2016

      Chiiiile if you don’t sit your Beethoven hearing ass down somewhere… least I gave your “Vision” credit, but let’s not F that up! 🙂

    It’s refreshing seeing all this talent making a comeback at the same time! Now just need Xtina to stop going to concerts and take a break from doing tv shows to put her new music out!

    • JOHNVIDAL October 7, 2016

      Yes it´s been such a great week that came out of nowhere lol Oh and I don´t think Xtina is ready at all. She´ll release her next album when she´s ready and I don´t think it is now at all. I think she enjoys her life as it is without the stress of trying to top charts. Good for her.

  5. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? October 7, 2016

    Random, by why the heck didn’t Brandy’s label release “All in Me” and “Anybody” as singles? “Full Moon” couldn’t literally be somewhere hovering over 5X platinum in the U.S. if they just played her cards right. Ughh!

    • The A Team October 7, 2016

      she was heavily pregnant by time full moon the single was out, so she probably decided to end promo herself

    • Ke October 7, 2016

      I think it was because of her fake marriage lol.

  6. pat October 7, 2016

    I was hoping for something very emotional, melodic, and more stripped down from Mary.

  7. JOHNVIDAL October 7, 2016

    I can´t believe so many talented artists released material this week. Suddenly a lot of albums to buy on the horizon 🙂 I still have not listened to Solange´s material.

    • Surprise..(DEC 2013) October 7, 2016

      Solange’s album is amazing…

  8. Meme October 7, 2016

    Feeling Bruno the most of them all. And I also love solanges singles.

  9. Paulo October 7, 2016

    well I’m yet to hear this new track from JoJo but right now to me it’s The Weeknd > Solange > GaGa in that exact order.

  10. #Nicole Nation October 7, 2016

    JoJo/Bruno > Alicia > Solange > John > The Weeknd >> Mary >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>> >>>>



    Wait for it…


    And then,


  11. Theman October 7, 2016

    All of them released great music.

  12. S****** Blonde October 7, 2016

    Solange has definitely the best single, her art actually feels more genuine than that of her famous sister.

    • Ty October 7, 2016

      You just couldn’t comment without mentioning Beyoncé ??

    • #Nicole Nation October 7, 2016

      It’s true though. The whole “lemonade” thing was all just fake. Plus Solange writes her own songs and doesn’t just change the title for writer’s credit.

  13. Ty October 7, 2016

    Mjb solange and Bruno my get my vote!!

  14. Danzou October 7, 2016

    Bruno is just uptown funk with an eighties twist. Good but commercial. Mary is kicking ass with her single but it’s only gonna appeal to hear fans seeing as white people and the younger crowd don’t care much for rNb however I love her single. Solange has a great album but politics will see her overshadowed by heart sister’s success. Abel is good but he’s starting to annoy me personally. I’m a big fan and still like his music and it’s good to see him inspired by the eighties and using noir to separate himself. I just get tired of his whiny vocals about the same substance. Drugs, women, and being sad. I like perfect illusion but it’s sad to see her try and reinvent bad romance once again. That’s about all I can gather from the fall season of singles.

  16. Wayno October 7, 2016

    Mary dropped her best single since “Be Without You”

    This is the Mary we like..

    slick talking and pain.

    i hate to see her go through DIVORCE, but seriousy her music its better when her personal life is unbalanced.

  17. Monique October 7, 2016

    100% MJB. Gonna be her biggest hit in a while.

  18. LmfaoHoe October 7, 2016

    I love them all and thank God for their music that will be added to my library ??… Bruno and Weeknd gonna battle for that #1 spot including albums… Gaga I’ma need a few more listens thought, but she is trying.

  20. Remey October 7, 2016

    Bruno and GaGa are going to do some damage on the charts. The Weeknd and Bruno are going to put some pressure on each other. Alicia will tank the most. Solange will enjoy week one success but will slip out after everyone else out their bids in. Mary will make a mark once she starts promoting.
