There's no denying that Selena Gomez is on a winning streak, whether you measure "winning" by commercial success or quality. She hasn't released a full album since 2013's Stars Dance, but in between eras she released the heartbreaking The Heart Wants What It Wants as well as experimenting with a different genre by providing vocals on Zedd's I Want You To Know. With her first album on her new record label, Revival, she proves that she's a force to be reckoned with in the pop world, along with the likes of Katy Perry and Taylor Swift.
Hailee Steinfeld is one of many (many, many, many) actresses who have tried their hand at a music career, in a move to establish more of a musical personality. Several reviewers have dismissed her debut EP as unoriginal and presenting a confusing image of her as a musical artist, but I disagree with them. Although there is a mix of ballads and upbeat songs on this EP (as there should be), the EP gives a nice taste of Steinfeld's musical style, moreso than her debut single did.
