If you haven’t heard of Sinead Harnett, you’re in for a treat.

Her newest self-titled EP is a sultry, sensual mix of dazzling vocals and alternative R&B. The four featured songs on the release prove that the artist can do it all, from an upbeat and energetic melody that makes you want to dance in “Rather be With You,” to a slow and broken down instrumental highlighting her wide vocal range in “If You Let Me,” (featuring GRADES). In “Say What You Mean,” early 2000s R&B meets the modern day. Harnett brings back some serious Destiny’s Child vibes, and does it well.

 

The star on the rise already has over 15k followers on Spotify and a whopping 115k on SoundCloud. It’s clear that this is only the beginning for the 26 year old. Originally from London, Harnett already has an international reach and has collaborated with Disclosure on the popular song, “Boiling” as well as with Rudimental, in which she contributed songwriting and vocals on their first album, Home. She’s made her solo debut with the song “Got Me,” on Black Butter Records and since has been featured on Billboard, Fader and BBC. In fact, she even made Spotify’s Viral 50 list coming in at number 39. In 2014 Harnett was signed to Virgin EMI Records, but regardless of a label, she claims that maintaining full control of her sound is the most important thing. Harnett says that she draws inspiration from artists such as Lauryn Hill and Whitney Houston, and has been singing since she was seven years old. We can tell.

October holds such great things. Breakout pop princess DAYA has announced her full length, debut album to be revealed this autumn. After an absolutely smashing year for the artist, her solo project is finally mastered and ready for reveal. The announcement comes fresh after her exclusive sneak peek during the MTV Video Music Awards.

The 17-year-old Pittsburgh pick up recorded the album in Los Angeles over the past year. It was executive produced by Gino "Farrago" Barletta alongside the creative vision of Daya, continuing the momentum from her debut self-titled EP Daya that released in September 2015.

"The album’s RIAA gold-certified title track and current single, “Sit Still, Look Pretty,” rocketed into the top 10 on iTunes overall songs chart last week, where it currently still sits. The track also blasted into the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100, jumping 20 spots to its current #36 slot. This marks Daya’s third consecutive song – and all her singles to date – to enter the Top 40, succeeding her debut breakout song “Hide Away” and her double-platinum hit with The Chainsmokers, “Don’t Let Me Down.” The song’s music video will make its broadcast prime time premiere September 9 on MTV."

RELATED: Watch List: Why DAYA Is On A Fast Track To The Top

I have been working tirelessly on this record for almost a year now. It’s the most authentic representation of me as an artist so far, and each song carries a piece of me,” says Daya. “I’m so grateful for all the support I’ve received over the past year and it still feels surreal to be releasing my first album. I am so stoked for the world to finally hear it!!” 

Check out the 8 tracks below:

1.    Dare

2.    Legendary

3.    I.C.Y.M.I.

4.    Thirsty

5.    Love of My Life

6.    Hide Away

7.    Cool

8.    Sit Still, Look Pretty

9.    Talk

10.  U12

11.  Words

12.  Back to Me

13.  Got the Feeling

14.  We Are

Maia Mitchell, alumn of such Disney Channel features as the 2 season run of the show Jessie (2013-2014) and movie musicals Teen Beach Movie (2013) and Teen Beach 2 (2015) currently stars on Freeform's drama, The Fosters.

But television acting is indeed not Mitchell's sole interest. She is showcasing her multi-faceticity  - and is already being recognized for it - in this viral cover of DJ Snake and Justin Bieber's "Let Me Love You". Give it a listen --

The vulnerability purported not only through the lyrics but her tonality and the slight breaking in her voice at the end of "love" are gorgeously enthralling. The self-conscious manner in which she scans the train platform lend to the feeling of a desperate transitional space.

We are hungry for more, Maia! How about an album of your own? Please?!
