Austin Mahone might not be doing any more “Dirty Work” to establish himself as an artist. The 19-year-old singer released his latest single, “Do It Right,” and it’s a slow jam that shows his maturity and versatility.
Despite his young age, Mahone has been working on evolving his sound to be “next-level,” as he often says. Prior to “Do It Right,” Mahone dropped a catchy track titled “Dirty Work” that was not only one of his strongest to date, but also displayed riskier, more sexualized lyrics than his former releases.
With an R&B-laced beat and smooth vocals, “Do It Right” shows another side of Mahone, one that showcases the work he has put in to his music as he approaches the release of his debut full-length LP later this year. He told Billboard in July that the process of finding his desired sound was “definitely a little bit difficult,” but he is satisfied with what he has put out and achieved so far.
“There was a lot of exposure [with previous EP, The Secret], and now it’s time to transition,” Mahone said. Going into this next phase, he hopes songs like “Do It Right” will keep his Mahomies happy while appealing to a wider fan base as well. “I want my fans to enjoy it, and hopefully I’ll bring some more fans into the mix.”
