This one isn't really one of my favorite songs of Megan Nicole's — her last single, Never Wanna Let You Go, was a lot better. Still, I really like Megan's decision to work on more of her original music, and I'm excited for her EP.

The first single off Tiffany Alvord's upcoming studio album is a poppy, happy song all about falling in love. The accompanying music video is probably one of the most adorable, happy things I've seen in a while. Not her usual style, but definitely gets me excited for Legacy.

This ballad isn't the usual choice for a single, but it works surprisingly well. It's full of lyrics about fitting in and questioning why women have to "try so hard" to be "pretty". Additionally, the lyric video features celebrities (such as Miranda Lambert, Sara Bareilles and the girls of Fifth Harmony) without makeup, which is a pretty powerful statement.

Returning website visitors have probably already seen my review of Alyssa Baker's EP, so they'll know that I thought it was really exciting when she released a music video to accompany her song, Timebomb. It's a beautifully simplistic video with shots of a river, a forest, and Alyssa playing the guitar. It's beautiful and sort of calming, but did bring all my emotions from The Fault in Our Stars back.
This song was featured as the iTunes single of the week, and I'm really glad it was, because I discovered an artist I probably wouldn't have in other circumstances. LP's voice is really unique and great, and it's a catchy, pretty cute song.
Tattoo is definitely a single-ready song, but it's not really one of the best on the album, in my opinion. It's somewhat too repetitive, and Storyline or Wild Card could have easily filled its place. The lyric video, however, is pretty creative and eye-catching.

I saw this song live on Jennel Garcia's tour with several other bands, and the concert was definitely worth the ticket price. The song itself is catchy, and Jennel Garcia performed it very well. No wonder she got on the X Factor. I'm hoping for a music video, or at the very least a lyric video, but for now here's the official audio.
I was really happy when I saw that this one was being released as Kacey Musgraves' next single. It's a song that I've seen performances of on Youtube and really liked, and I was glad to be able to own a studio version. Kacey Musgraves and her team seem to have chosen to make it a more ballad-y version, but I'm not complaining. It's very beautiful.
