New Podcast Alert! Must-Hear Music: Chatting New Songs From Minaj, Gaga & More
Billboard is unveiling the debut episode of a new podcast, Must-Hear Music, where Billboard staffers sit down to chat compelling new songs that you must hear (thus the name, Must-Hear Music).
Two-thirds of the people on this podcast are familiar faces (or rather, familiar voices): Jason Lipshutz co-hosts the Pop Shop Podcast, Erika Ramirez helms her hip-hop and R&B-focused podcast, The Juice. And you don't know Joe Lynch (me) from any podcasts, but hey, try not to hold that against him.
This week the three of us discuss six songs from chart-toppers, cult favorites and rising stars from a variety of genres: pop, R&B, country, hip-hop and jazz.
Listen to the inaugural episode of Must-Hear Music below, and if you don't mind a SPOILER ALERT, the songs we cover this week are listed beneath the SoundCloud.
Jessie J, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj: "Bang Bang"
Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett: "Anything Goes"
Kira Isabella: "Quarterback"
Run the Jewels: "Blockbuster Night Pt. 1"
Ella Henderson: "Ghost"
