The day I've been waiting for has finally came. Guamanian singing sensation Pia Mia has released the video for her official first single "Do It Again" ft Tyga and Chris Brown. Sticking to the summer-esque, island vibe of the song, Pia cruises along the sunny beaches of Malibu with her girls, frolics in the sand, and serves up some instense choreo all before ending the night with a party. First, let me start off by applauding the glam squad for making every bit of her look absolutely FLAWLESS. Every scene was beautiful, especially the solo shots of her in all white. Dancing has become synonymous with Pia so there was no surprise that she had a full out, banging routine with her shirtless dancers. I really appreciated the culture she incorporated, which made the viewer feel as if they were getting a deeper look inside of the artist. Chris Brown and Tyga added their flavor, further solidifying the Nic Nac produced track as a winner.There's no denying that the Interscope signee is what we've been missing in a younger artist; amazing voice, style, choreography, and vision...not to mention gorgeous. Pia Mia's debut album should be arriving later this year, but for now, get into "Do It Again" below.

Pint-sized powerhouse Tiffany Evans has returned to the music game and is here to snatch wigs! Following up buzz singles Baby Don't Go and Red Wine, the ATL based singer drops her Fetty Wap assisted first single, "On Sight". The youthful R&B track sees Tiff flex her vocal chops as she insists that she knows what she wants and any guy interested better keep up. It's a fun, summer record that features one of the hottest acts at the moment so I'm sure with a killer, dance heavy visual, and energetic performances, we'll be seeing a lot more of this little lady. "On Sight" can be found on Tiffany's upcoming EP, All Me, arriving later this year. Listen up below.

It looks as though Omarion's return isn't temporary. The MMG singer continues to make us dance with his new single "I'm Up" featuring rappers Kid Ink and French Montana. Produced by Nic Nac (Chris Brown, Pia Mia), the thumping club banger sees Omari boast about how poppin' he is, lettin' everyone know that there's levels when it comes to him. It definitely rides the coat tails of his current smash Post To Be, but it's more groovy and seems like an anthem for the guys. All I really want is for O to dance again and really kill this visual like in his hey day. Regardless, we're in for a hot summer. Count up your commas below.

His face may be unfamiliar, but you've seen the name throughtout many an artist's writing credits. Songwriter TC (Tamar Braxton, Justin Bieber) steps from behind the pen and ventures out on his own, offering up the midtempo "Designer". On the R&B jam, TC sings his heart out, stating that he's the best thing that could ever happen to another. On first listen I was blown away. The vocal ability on this guy is out of this world. You can clearly hear a strong Brandy influence, from the extravagant harmonies to the crazy runs. Designer serves as the first single from his upcoming EP. Swipe that card below.

They always say..don't judge a book by it's cover. California singer Chrissy (Chris Stokes' daughter) stays in line with the family business and debuts a beautiful song named "Shadow". Finding a home on the Will To Love movie soundtrack, the heartwrenching R&B tune tells a tale of a girl who believes she is perfect for a certain guy, and will not play the background to anyone else. I honestly didn't expect this to be this amazing. From the looks of Chrissy and knowing her father's resume, I assumed I'd hear some type of Cali turn up record, but boy was I wrong. The instrumentation alone was incredible and the passion behind her voice took you to the exact moment she reminiscing about. Hopefully we get to hear more music from the recent high school graduate soon. Step into the light below.

Old souls we found a new religion..now I'm swimming in that sin, that's baptism. R&B's resident rocker Miguel unveils the video for his sultry first single "Coffee". The risque clip sees the crooner get hot and steamy with a sexy co-star (who looks a lot like his long time girlfriend Nazanin), groping, kissing, and playing in the sheets till the early morning. Although very simple, the emotion throughout helped convey the song's message and give you a glimpse into Miguel's mind. I do wish there was a breakfast scene and actual guitar playing, but overall I dig it. The California native will release his third studio album, WILDHEART, June 29th and will embark on a nationwide tour this summer. Get into the video below.

Children beware..close your eyes..Veronica Vega is taking the summer for a naughty ride. For her latest single "Pay Me", the spicy beauty spits some provocative rhymes over a pounding, Polow Da Don produced beat. It's very...My Neck,My Back..which is a great thing! lol. I love some good, ratchet fun and this visual serves up a lot. From the ass shaking to the fashion, it's safe to say that this Latina is not afraid to be daring. Let loose below (NSFW).

Former American Idol alum and Smash actress, Katharine McPhee, reintroduces herself into the music industry with her new video "Lick My Lips". The fit beauty flaunts her body to the retro tune, serving face amongst her 50's inspired co stars. It's a fun track for the summer and I especially enjoyed the higher, soulful notes. Hopefully there's a good mix of Pop and R&B on the album. In the meantime, get a taste of Ms.McPhee below.
Cheers to wasting no time! Riding high on the success of her first single, Somebody, Natalie La Rose follows up with the bass-heavy, electro "Around The World" featuring hot shot of the moment, Fetty Wap. The Dutch singer gets naughty from sea to sea while her collaborator sings in his usual warped vocal. I really like the entire track, despite wishing Fetty's delivery was a little better. This is a perfect setup for staying atop the charts until her debut album drops. I know she's gonna give us looks and choreo aplenty in the video so you can bet I'll be stalking her social media for updates. lol. Give it up to Natalie below.
Ohio singer/songwriter Rashad has dropped a smooth, slow burner accompanied by a catchy hook and lush vocals in the name of "Turn Down". The screwed nature makes it an instant play in the bedroom; not to mention the explicit lyrics. The track can be found on Rashad's forthcoming album, The Quiet Loud, due this summer. Turn down below.
