It’s the first week into the new year, and unsurprisingly, it’s been filled with new and exciting music that’s on our radar. Out of the United Kingdom, we’ve got a new Taylor Swift-style pop/country artist Catherine McGrath, not to mention a unique cover from the boys of The Vamps. Over on the United States side of things, there’s an original song from the cast of the TV show ‘STAR’, as well as new music from 2016 hitmakers Kehlani and Bebe Rexha. Check them all out for yourself here.
Catherine McGrath – ‘Cinderella’
‘Cinderella’ comes off of 19-year-old Catherine’s debut EP ‘One’, along with two other tracks titled ‘Hell Would Have to Freeze Over’ and ‘She’ll Never Love You’. Inspired by a mix of country and pop music a la Taylor Swift, Catherine’s ‘Cinderella’ debuted on Spotify’s New Music Friday UK Playlist.
Kiera Weathers – ‘You Gotta Be’
You might remember 19-year-old Kiera as a finalist on last year’s ‘X Factor UK’, and she’s back now with her debut single. ‘You Gotta Be’ is a feel-good track her manager Junior Masandi describes as “an absolute game changer.”
The Vamps – ‘Rockabye (Cover)’

Bebe Rexha – ‘I Got You’
Coming off her much-anticipated debut 2017 album ‘Parlophone’, ‘I Got You’ follows her huge single ‘In The Name of Love’. Bebe currently has 1.5 billion combined YouTube streams, and ‘I Got You’ is already nearing 4 million.
Tyni – ‘Fighter’
The first track off of her debut EP of the same name, ‘Fighter’ displays a mix of Tyni’s time spent in Los Angeles combined with her hometown of Sheffield. At only twenty-one, Tyni describes her music as “jumping into [her] very own Wonderland where each song’s a different chapter of [her] very own fairytale.”
