“Be Myself” is the upcoming tenth studio album by American recording artist Sheryl Crow. It’s scheduled to be released on April 21st via Warner Music Group.
It serves as follow-up to 2013’s country project “Feels Like Home”. This time, the singer has returned to her roots with a more 90s pop-influenced sound. She has been working with usual collaborators Jeff Trott and Tchad Blake.
During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the 54-year-old artist has shared some details of the project:
I wanted to revisit that sound and that feeling. It was a complete blast and the most effortless thing I’ve ever done
The lead single is called “Halfway There“, and about this song, she added:
The idea of the song is that even though you may drive a big Chevy truck and I drive my hybrid, or you may wear designer clothes and I wear ripped jeans, that doesn’t mean we don’t want the same things in life and the same things for our kids in the future. The message is we need to agree to disagree and just try and meet halfway there
The single was released as instant grat along the pre-order of the album on March 3rd.

A classic anthem is back with a special re-worked version performed by Ariana Grande and John Legend. It’s the main theme of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast“, which is included on the live-action version of the film which arrives on March 17th.
The film’s original theme song, the Broadway-inspired ballad was first recorded by British-American actress Angela Lansbury in her role as the voice of the character Mrs. Potts, and essentially describes the relationship between its two main characters Belle and the Beast, specifically how the couple has learned to accept their differences and in turn change each other for the better.
Additionally, the song’s lyrics imply that the feeling of love is as timeless and ageless as a “tale as old as time”. “Beauty and the Beast” was subsequently recorded as a pop duet by Canadian singer Celine Dion and American singer Peabo Bryson, and released as the only single from the film’s soundtrack on 16 November 1991.
The remake version was released officially on digital retailers and streaming services on February 3rd. The official music video to support this new version was premiered on Sunday March 5th during iHeartRadio Awards. It was directed by Dave Meyers.
American recording artist, singer-songwriter Elle King has returned to the music scene with unexpected new single called “Wild Love“, which becomes her first proper release this year.

The song was written by Midian Mathers and Christopher Braide, who is also responsible behind the production, and it was released on digital retailers and streaming services on March 6th via RCA Records and Sony Music Entertainment.

Romeo dropped an MV teaser for their 4th-mini album!
The MV teaser features the boys at what appears to be a shipment facility with shipping containers all over the place. One of the shots features a party like atmosphere with a lot of dancing and a Lamborghini Gallardo placed as a set piece. The teaser ends with a drone flying over the boys running. The song sounds pretty fresh from what I can hear in the teaser.
