2. BLÜ EYES | Break Up With A Friend
LA-based singer/songwriter BLÜ EYES released her new single, "Break Up With A Friend."

Her soaring melodies, coupled with her intimate, soul-bearing lyrics, have captivated listeners worldwide. With releases on labels like Armada, Hexagon, AVA, and many more, her songs have garnered the endorsement of radio shows like The State of Trance and Beats Radio 1.
3. AJ MCLEAN | LOVE SONG LOVE
28 years with the Backstreet Boys and on his own, AJ McLean has released a new song called "Love Song Love," in which the musician dresses in drag while dancing around a dollhouse to celebrate the transgender community in the video. Directed by René Elizondo and McLean and featuring a life-size Hollywood dollhouse dripping in pink, McLean appears alongside transgender models Nahla Wyld and Carmen Carrera, partying it up amid flowers and feather boas. The single comes from the first of two EPs McLean plans to release this year.
4. AMBER MARK | WORTH IT
New York-based singer, songwriter, and producer Amber Mark returns with a soulful new single, “Worth It." This serves her first single in over a year and the first track to come from her forthcoming debut album, set for release later this year on EMI/PMR Records. The track is accompanied by visuals directed by Mark and Cara Stricker, and the video is the first in a 5-part series detailing a story of self-love and acceptance. This marks the first official single since 2020’s “Generous” and was still a hugely productive year for the rising R&B star.
