Majid Jordan by Majid Jordan
With writing credits that include Drake and Beyonce, it was only a matter of time before Toronto-based duo Majid Jordan released their own material. Following their 2014 EP, A Place Like This, the self-titled debut album sees them mix pop hits with darker overtones. The hypnotic standout single, "Something About You", looks set to be a radio hit.
All I Need by Foxes
All I Need will be the second album by Louisa Rose Allen, aka Foxes. Her work with Zedd on the massive hit Clarity put her in the spotlight and in this new album, Foxes once again lets her distinct voice power through the drumbeats and bass lines. Not to mention, she's H&M's face of the Autumn 2015 range, simultaneously premiering the video single to "Feet Don't Fail Me Now" as part of the H&M Loves Music campaign.
Wonderful Crazy Night by Elton John
Elton John's 33rd album in his illustrious music career is a visit to the past, specifically to the '70s, when he first started gaining prominence. "It's like going back to the '70s, there's a lot of '70s-influenced things in there, but it's a record that's been made in 2015," he said. It might well be one of his fastest albums as well, taking less than three weeks to wrap up. Despite that, the maestro is still producing radio-friendly hits including "Blue Wonderful" for which he recently released the music video.
