Montana’s contribution was a pleasant surprise, and with lyrics written by Tinashe, Derulo once again creates another catchy track that is sure top the charts in the coming weeks.


“Jungle” – Pitbull & Stereotypes feat. E-40 and Abraham Mateo

Over the course of his decade-long career, Pitbull has churned out some major hits, on his own as well as with artists like Kesha and Jennifer Lopez. In order to promote his “Greatest Hits” LP, he released a new single, “Jungle,” on Nov. 10 that features his signature sound. The track has a poppy vibe characterized by a lively Latin sound.


“Stunting Ain’t Nuthin” – Gucci Mane

Off of his most recent album “Mr. Davis”, Gucci Mane drops another hit single featuring younger rappers Slim Jxmmi and Young Dolph. With a hard hook, powerful bass, and the signature “brrr!” Gucci delivers the Atlanta hip hop sound that brought him to the forefront of mainstream hip hop artists nearly a decade ago.


“New Rules (Acoustic)” – Dua Lipa

Although British singer Dua Lipa released her charting single, “New Rules,” on July 21, she only released the acoustic version of the song later last month, on Oct. 20. The song’s repetitive but catchy lyrics are directed at people getting over hard break-ups, reminding them not to give into temptation. Despite the relatively serious lyrics, the acoustic version uses guitar and drums to create a softer version of the dance music in the original.
