Austin Mahone has returned with a new single called "Banga Banga". Originally slated to arrive on Sunday, November 10, the song was debuted on Chicago's B96 radio station on Tuesday night, November 5.
Unlike his previous songs, which include "What About Love" and "Say Somethin", the new song sounds less "poppy." "I like different styles of music, so I wanted to put something a little feisty out there. It's a little different, a little more mature," the Texas-born singer recently told Billboard of his newest release.
"Banga Banga" was produced by Sean Garrett, the same person behind Usher's "Yeah" and Ciara's "Goodies". The song will likely be featured in his debut album, "Junior Year", that will be coming out in early 2014.
The same track is also expected to be included in the setlist of Mahone's postponed "MTV Artist to Watch" tour. Last month, the 17-year-old pop sensation was forced to scrap the tour after being hospitalized with a blood clot in his throat.
Now, the singer is recovering. "I'm feeling a lot better than I did a week ago," he said in another interview with Rolling Stone. "Still not feeling 100 percent, but trying to get better." Mahone's sold-out tour has been rescheduled for February 2014.
