Bomba Estereo Featuring Will Smith 

“Fiesta (Remix)”

Sony Music Latin 

Will Smith has an unlikely vehicle for his music comeback: rapping bilingually on this thumping electro-cumbia mix from Colombian duo Bomba Estereo. His first on-wax rap in a decade is the weakest part of a great song, but should help give it a much-deserved crossover look. -- Leila Cobo

"Hands of Love" 


It’s not clear if this song from Freeheld, the new film about a gay cancer patient’s fight to pass on her pension to her partner, was made after Dead Petz, Cyrus’ panned middle finger to pop. Either way, it comes off like a mea culpa: Penned by Linda Perry and sung beautifully, it’s “Wrecking Ball” with even more adult contemporary sheen. -- Alex Gale

Panic! At The Disco 



The latest stop en route to Panic’s fifth studio album, “Victorious” is a manic quest to squeeze as many buildups, breakdowns and Icona Pop-style chants into a jock jam for the latter-day Fall Out Boy set. It’s standard stuff for network TV sports bumpers, but downright exhausting as a stand-alone. -- Chris Payne
