Ready? Let’s do this!

Artist: Backstreet Boys
Hometown: Orlando, FL
Genre: Pop
Related: *NSYNC, New Kids On The Block, Hanson
Song: Don’t Go Breaking My Heart
Notes: The music is updated, but it’s as smooth as it ever was as the Backstreet Boys return with Don’t Go Breaking My Heart. The video is vintage BSB with choreography throughout and featured solo cut-aways to shine a light on Brian, AJ, Nick, Kevin, and Howie. Be ready, there’s more coming from the boyband legends.

Artist: Sam Hunt
Hometown: Cedartown, GA
Genre: Country
Related: Thomas Rhett, Dylan Scott, Kelsea Ballerini
Song: Downtown’s Dead
Notes: Sam Hunt is back! With a mix of country music storytelling (boy misses girl) and a heavy beat, the crossover artist is kicking off summer with Downtown’s Dead for both fans and radio. Keep your ears open for this one, we have a feeling you’ll be hearing a lot of it.

Artist: Jade Eagleson
Hometown: Bailieboro, ON
Genre: Country
Related: James Barker Band, Ben Hudson, Kris Barclay
Song: Got Your Name On It
Notes: The 2017 Boots & Hearts Emerging Artist Showcase winner has released his debut single, and we’re here for it. The Ontario country boy shows off the voice that made him a winner and gives us all a glimpse of what’s to come on Got Your Name On It. Stay tuned to see what comes next.

Artist: Jazz Cartier
Hometown: Toronto, ON
Genre: Rap / Hip-Hop
Related: IDK, Derek Wise, Mike Stud
Song: GODFLOWER
Notes: Since his breakout performance at WayHome 2017, Jazz Cartier has been on our radar. And GODFLOWER has caught our attention. At three minutes even there are no wasted moments, and Cartier flows from start to finish with the skill and rhythm that we expect from the Toronto rapper.

Artist: Dizzy
Hometown: Oshawa, ON
Genre: Dream Pop
Related: Dear Rouge, SHAED, Ralph
Song: Pretty Thing
Notes: Shot on the band’s first trip to L.A., singer and lyricist Katie Munshaw says, “It was our first time in the city so the video is a magical, innocent, 4 minute first dance with L.A.”. The Pretty Thing video is a packed with dreamy visuals and a laid-back vibe that makes us want to tag along the next time Dizzy goes anywhere.

Artist: Midland
Hometown: Dripping Springs, TX
Genre: Country
Related: Brothers Osborne, The Cadillac Three, Carly Pearce
Song: Burn Out
Notes: Midland does what they do on Burn Out, layering smooth and sweet harmonies over a country song that has a throwback nod to George Strait’s heyday. The smooth one-shot video feels like a throwback too, to the days when the boys were sweating and playing for beers and tip money in honky-tonks. And as an added bonus, we can almost imagine ourselves with the band at Gilley’s (made famous in Urban Cowboy) and we dig it!
