Ready? Let's go!

Artist: Shawn Mendes & Justin Bieber
Hometown: Pickering, ON // Stratford, ON
Genre: Pop
Related: Camila Cabello, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Alessia Cara
Song: Monster
Notes: Monster is combination of two international stars from Canada who have some soft stuff to get out. The pairing of their voices and star power will take this one way up and will have fans in a frenzy.

There are those who point to the timing of this song and it's perceived 'poor me' side from two extremely well-off men in a time when a lot of people are having a hard time... and all of that is fair too.

If you love Shawn Mendes and/or Justin Bieber, Monster is a huge track - enjoy it for the vocal performances and the track. If not, skip this one and move one to the next.

Artist: JJ Wilde
Hometown: Kitchener, ON
Genre: Rock
Related: The Glorious Sons, Emily Wolfe, Crown Lands
Song: Mercy
Notes: JJ Wilde is a rock star. And Mercy is her next step in showing everyone it's for real. The first single release since her album, Ruthless, Mercy captures that same rock vibe, clean but not overly-polished. Gritty but not too rough.

Turn the volume up on this one and be ready for more and more from Wilde as she keeps her foot on the gas.

Hometown: Toronto, ON
Genre: Indie / Pop / Rock
Related: The Beaches, Dear Rouge, July Talk
Song: BL/FF (Fake Friends)
Notes: Emerging stars, MONOWHALES are back with another new one, and they nailed it again. The Toronto trio say that BL/FF (Fake Friends) is their "juicy ode to online dating." It's fun to move to, it's going to be a great addition to their live set, and we can't wait for this one to become a song that we can't get out of our heads.

Artist: Vox Rea
Hometown: Vancouver, BC
Genre: Alternative
Related: Ralph, Michela Slinger, DWNTWN
Song: Sinatra
Notes: Their second release under that Vox Rea banner, Sinatra is a little bit eery, a little bit haunting, and a whole lot of pretty with strings and piano and voices and a total package that will capture your imagination and pull you in. Keep an eye and ear out for Vox Rea and what's coming next.

Artist: POESY
Hometown: Toronto, ON
Genre: Rock / Indie
Related Artists: Dear Rouge, JJ Wilde, MONOWHALES
Song: Diamonds
Notes: POESY returns with the anticipated new single, Diamonds. And it was worth the wait. After her 2019 EP, Glass Box Confessional , she's back and continues to show herself as an artist on the rise, worthy of your attention, and highly talented. Diamonds gives us some real Florence + The Machine vibes in a very good way, and y'all should be ready to hear a lot of this one. Enjoy!

Stay tuned - we've got more coming with POESY very soon!
