June 2013 is going to be a great month for new music. Music lovers will receive a dose of pure pop from groups like Big Time Rush and Hanson, a fresh batch of R&B jams courtesy of Kelly Rowland and Ashanti, a bit of jazzy crooning from 'Glee' star Matthew Morrison, some new hip-hop tracks from Mac Miller and J. Cole, and a few surefire party staples from 3OH!3. So, which new music release for June 2013 has you the most excited?
Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson are famous for their flawless harmonies and catchy, pop-rock tunes, so it’s no wonder they befriended cast members of FOX’s musical sitcom, ‘Glee.’ The brothers hung out with Matthew Morrison and Darren Criss last weekend, and there are tweets and pictures to prove it!
Oh those Hanson boys -- we mean men! They may be married adults at this point in their lives, but they're still able to pull in the ladies like when they were a young boy band. The brothers recruited '2 Broke Girls' babe Kat Dennings and 'Twilight' vamp Nikki Reed for the lead roles in their 'Get the Girl Back' video.
If you thought Hanson disappeared after their 1997 smash hit 'MMMBop,' think again! They announced a boatload of exciting news today, including the upcoming release of a brand-new album, ‘ANTHEM,’ a world tour, along with the disc’s lead single, ‘Get the Girl Back’ (whose music video stars actresses Kat Dennings and Nikki Reed). But that’s not all. The trio of talented brothers will also appear on ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' on April 9 to perform their new single.
Carly Rae Jepsen may come across as young -- given her association with Justin Bieber (who "discovered" the 'Call Me Maybe' singer in his native Canada), and the fact that she's gorgeous and healthy-looking.
But she's actually 26, so it's not a shock to hear that when she hung out with former boy band Hanson, she tossed back whiskey with them! Actually, we still think of the Bros. Hanson singing 'MMMBop' as kids, so the image of them throwing back a hard beverage is a bit jarring.
With all of the hype surrounding One Direction, the Wanted, Nickelodeon stars Big Time Rush and the impending Jonas Brothers reunion, PopCrush wanted all of the readers to weigh in on their favorite contemporary boy band.
