Diji Parq (Ryon Baharloo and John Monds) is back with their single “New Shirt.” As writers in 2017, they placed the song “These Girls,” with artist Why Don’t We and saw the song climb to #1 on Radio Disney. Ryon also released his first solo track “Grandma’s Car,” debuting it on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. 


“New Shirt” is a Mike O production (Wyclef, DVBBS, T-Pain, CARDS, Happy Sometimes) and is the first song in a series of singles that will bring Diji Parq to the forefront of pop music in 2018. That synth line totally reminds me of Super Mario. The Soundcloud channel that the song is posted on (CARDS) is Mike O's in case you were wondering.


This song barges in with optimism that reminds me of an early Chance The Rapper in terms of the positivity and even hints of the singing style and happy instrumental. Their singing harmonies are well complimented on the hook too, certainly a feel-good vibe.


BRB gonna go buy a new shirt.

Conan Gray is one of those cases where a small-town kid makes some very catchy music on Garageband and a cheap mic taped to a lamp and finds explosive success. This doesn’t always happen, and it’s a testament to Conan’s ability as a songwriter. Fast forward to the pres...

The Youtube comments on this video seem pretty accurate.

This summertime guitar production mixes well with BabyJake's raspy singing, harmonies and a blackbear type of tone.  Also reminiscent of the Dominic Fike wave that's taking over, we're excited to hear more talente...
