Another Fifth Harmony Alum Dropped A Major Bop: Ally Brooke Released ‘No Good’ Her First Solo Venture

The Fifth Harmony alum, who won third place on “Dancing With the Stars,” just dropped a new track and we’re excited. Ally’s new song is relatable, catchy and upbeat. The singer’s first solo song is all about relationships that are no good for you and how hard they are to get out of. Who knows, maybe this track will propel Ally into to the top of the charts like former band-members Camila and Normani. Here’s everything we know.

‘No Good’ is a Disco-inspired song with all-too-relatable lyrics.

Ally Brooke’s new song ‘No Good’ is a disco-inspired track about a love that’s ‘no good’ for her, but she just can’t stay away. If you can’t relate to that story well then it must be nice to be you. 

The song’s lyrics have us feeling seen; “You put me to hell, but I just can’t quit.”

With lyrics that tell the story of a hard-to-quit toxic relationship, the former Fifth Harmony member is preaching to the choir over here. In the first verse of the song Brooke sings “You put me through hell. But I can’t quit for heaven’s sake.” The pre-chorus has us feeling even more seen; “Make a promise that I’m leaving. But my heart only wants what it wants. In the madness what a feeling, I’m hung up should be hanging it up.” 

The song was written by a team of celebs, which will no doubt help make it a success.

According to Billboard, the song was written by an all-star team of chart-topping artists including Justin Bieber, G-Eazy, Demi Lovato, and Kim Petra. The track also features a sample from the 1987 Kelly Charles classic “You’re No Good For Me.”

Brooke’s new single is an exciting release for her fans. ‘No Good’ is her first completely solo venture. Her previous releases, ”Low Key,” “Lips Don’t Lie,” and “Higher” all featured other artists. “Low Key” featured Tyga, “Lips Don’t Lie” featured A Boogie Wit da Hoodie and “Higher” was a collaboration with Matoma.

Just hours after releasing her new song, Ally won third place on DWTS.

The bop of a track was released just hours before the season 28 finale of DWTS aired. After nearly being eliminated in last week’s episode, this week Brooke and Sasha Farber danced it out and were awarded the third place. The couple earned a perfect score of 30/30 for their Freestyle, despite failing to nail a lift at the beginning of their performance. The judges made no mention of the mistake and still gave them a perfect score.

Brooke took to Instagram to share how important the dance competition has been for her.

Amid all of her posts about “No Good” on her Instagram Story, the 26-year-old shared a bittersweet post about her dancing journey coming to an end. “Tonight was our last rehearsal,” she lamented. “So many emotions that I’m feeling. I cannot express how incredible this whole experience has been for me. This show will forever have a piece of my heart. And so will @sashafarber1. Thank you for being not only a wonderful partner, but a wonderful friend. You have brought the best out of me. And for that, I’ll never be able to say thank you enough. I love you Sash. Tomorrow is the finale. Our final dances together. Let’s go and shine.”

The former Fifth-Harmony singer teased the release of her new single on Instagram.

Just last week the 26-year-old singer took to Instagram to tease her fans by sharing the cover of her single on the social media platform. A few days later, Ally shared a snippet of the disco-tinged banger. 

The song ends on a positive note, after dragging all of us who can relate it.

“You’re no good for me, I don’t need nobody,” the rising star belts on the chorus. “Don’t need no one, that’s no good for me.”—can I get an amen? It’s only been one day since the song’s release, but it already sounds like a breath of fresh air in comparison to the mid-tempo tracks dominating the music scene.

With any luck, radio stations will get behind “No Good” and propel the song to the top of the charts. After laying the groundwork, it’s time for Ally to land her very own “Havana” or “Motivation,” like former band members Camila Cabello and Normani, did.

Fans are hoping that the single means that a debut solo album might be on the way to drop this coming 2020.

Run Away From That Toxic Relationship with Dalex’s New Single “Feeling”

Run Away From That Toxic Relationship with Dalex’s New Single “Feeling”

Puerto Rican singer Dalex is back to his Latin R&B roots with “Feeling“, which is about leaving behind that relationship that made you question everything, including changing who you are to please the other person.

Produced by Dimelo Flow, “Feeling” not only does it get deep about leaving behind what no longer serves you, but it is also packed with punchlines like “Te olvide como El Chavo, sin querer queriendo“.

In our interview for Latido Music by mitú, Dalex talked to us about the feeling he wanted to convey with the song, singing about heartbreak instead of his usual songs that tend to be more intimate.

Watch out interview below:

In “Feeling,” Dalex wants to explore other sounds and try doing a more commercial record that more people can relate to.

The colorful music video was shot in Miami, directed by Adrián Arredondo for Wildhouse Pictures. Dalex and his love interest are seen riding around dirt bikes, which we later found out in the interview was one of his Top 5 Feelings.

Watch the music video below:

Dalex has a busy 2021 ahead, and “Feeling” is the first single from his upcoming album due this year. The Rich Music singer told us that he has a collab with Reggaetón heavy hitters Wisin & Yandel and Zion & Lennox on the way, as well as an American singer which for now he can’t reveal, but we can’t wait to find out.

Javiera Mena Turns Up the Melodrama in “Dos” Music Video

Javiera Mena Turns Up the Melodrama in “Dos” Music Video

Chilean singer-songwriter Javiera Mena is back with her first single of 2021. She is shining in her new music video for “Dos.”

“Dos” is about getting caught up in the feelings of a love triangle.

“Dos” is the newest single from Mena’s upcoming EP. Last year, she previewed the EP with the futuristic “Flashback” and club-ready “Corazón Astral.”

With “Dos,” Mena retains her crown as the Latine queen of synth-pop. Whereas “Flashback” and “Corazón Astral” were more upbeat, she now puts her electronic touch on a heartbreaking ballad. Mena produced the song with Pablo Stipicic and co-wrote it with Marian Ruzzi. “Dos” channels the ’80s pop power ballads and Mena brings on the melodrama. She’s so in love with two and doesn’t know what to do.

“‘Dos’ is a classic ballad with an avant-garde message,” Mena said in a statement. “The song talks about a common topic, triangular relationships but from a different point of view. In this case from a person who is having feelings for two loves and that perhaps both of them fit in his/her heart.”

In the “Dos” music video, Mena sings her heart out.

Despite singing of a love triangle, Mena is all alone in the music video. She plays the piano in an abandoned warehouse. The openly queer icon sings her heart out in the stunning visual.

Mena’s new EP is due out later this spring. “[It’s] a night album with a desire as a common thread,” she adds. “A lot of mystery, sensual dance and above all, a lot of fire. This style of the album is an evolution of who I am: Electro with ballad tints.”
