During the May 22nd episode of Fresh Pick Live presented by O Organics, host Ellie Lee is joined by a panel including international broadcast journalist/host Jamila Mustafa, radio host/former VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown host Jim Shearer and playwright/author Cyrus Aaron to discuss all of the amazing new music that has recently been released.
The panel starts off by discussing Louis Tomlinson's new collaboration "Back To You" featuring Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals. The song is Louis' first single as a lead artist and follows his collaboration with Steve Aoki "Just Hold On." The group also ranked their favorite One Directioners.
Next, the panel talked about Foster The People's new album Sacred Hearts Club. The record is the band's third studio album, and the band's first album in three years. The group talked about their favorite songs on Sacred Hearts Club, and how the band has evolved over the years. And while Jamila is a fan of the album and the band, Cyrus wasn't feeling it.
Then, the group moved on to Skrillex's new single "Would You Ever" which features Justin Bieber collaborator Poo Bear. Jim was impressed with the video, which stars Milan Somerville. Somerville is known for his choreography on the longboard, and has gone viral before with his own videos. Also, Cyrus says "Would You Ever" is "the song for cuffing season."
Next up, the panel talked about Country Queen Shania Twain, and her latest song "Poor Me." As Cyrus and Jim pointed out, the song starts out sounding very similar to The Chainsmokers' hit song "Don't Let Me Down." And while Cyrus wasn't feeling the song, Jamila liked it, saying that this is a new sound for Shania.
Next, the panel talked about Macklemore's new single "Marmalade" featuring Lil Yachty, before moving on to Lana Del Rey's new album Lust For Life, which includes features from artists like A$AP Rocky, The Weeknd, Stevie Nicks, and Benny Blanco.
Then, the group talked about Julia Michaels' new debut "mini-album" Nervous System and Charli XCX's new song and music video "Boys," which stars a group of famous boys like Joe Jonas, Diplo, Brendon Urie, will.i.am, and more.
And this week's "Freshest Pick"? P!nk has teased that she has a new song coming out called "What About Us."
