Popcrush’s Ali Szubiak said that the song “maintains the sleek and sexy appeal of Selena’s first Revival single “Good For You”, but it’s far less crawling-on-the-ground seductive and more subtle in its appeal.”
“Hands of Love” is the latest song performed by American singer, songwriter, and actress Miley Cyrus. I first heard a snippet of “Hands of Love” in a new trailer for the movie ‘Freeheld’ a film that depicts the true story of a lesbian couple played by Ellen Page and Julianne Moore. The song was written by Linda Perry for the film, with Cyrus sounding anthemic as ever, using her gravelly falsetto voice to sing of freedom and hope when both seemed impossibly out of reach.

“Money” is a song performed by 5 Seconds Of Summer that served as the first single from their second studio album ‘Sounds Good Feels Good’. The song contains the very essence of 5 Seconds Of Summer itself. Aside from returning to its sonic roots, 5 Seconds of Summer maintain the rebellious streak its established by singing about living the wild life with a newfound punk queen and singing at the top of the track before moving on to other fun time activities. It’s the sort of strong anthem that any big rock album needs to kick off, so it’s good to hear 5 Seconds of Summer have done it again.
