As much as I tried keeping the Hump Day Mix to 15-tracks per mix, it's really difficult to make any cuts when so many new songs are out! So instead of the usual 15, this week's HDM has 21 tracks including two new songs from former Disney alums Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez, Megan & Liz, Icona Pop, Skylar Grey, Hey Champ, Wale ft. Rihanna, and Paige & Palermo. As always, I've included some awesome Aussie bands such as Eden Muholland, Greyjoy (possibly my new fav right now), Shining Bird, and The Ashton Shuffle. Click play and enjoy!

Dynamic duos and collaborations have always been a great way of putting two artists together. I mean look at Sonny & Cher, Donny and Marie, Rihanna and Jay-Z and now we can add Jennifer Paige and Coury Palermo to that incredible roster. The two came together to form Paige & Palermo and after MONTHS of hanging out, going to brunches and squeezing in time to create their EP, Stay, their hard work is finally here for us to enjoy. Last month, they released "Walk Slow," a song off of their EP to whet our insatiable appetite of what's to come. Then they released one more song from that EP, "Belong," which is available as a free download from their SoundCloud page. After hearing these two songs, it was clear that they were not messing around. I think "Save Me" is my favorite song off of their EP. The soulful vocals from Coury Palermo paired with Jennifer Paige's light and ethereal sound make for one lethal combination of music proportions. It doesn't hurt that they are both super hot too. Check out their EPK video that shows what the process has been like working together on this EP. But don't stray too far way because they are planning on releasing a second EP, Go, in August! It's like a Christmas summer! Speaking of gifts, STAY is already #11 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts. Congrats! Big high five and chest bumps to you guys. Also, how cute are they for including us in their post today. You guys are really awesome. Thank you.

We're still not sure if all of the happenings over at camp Miley Cyrus have been part of some elaborate PR stunt. From her short new do to the racy V Magazine photoshoot to the rumored breakup with Aussie beaux-friend, Liam Hemsworth, we would actually rather talk about Miley and her music. So far we've heard her collaborations with Will.I.Am on "Fall Down" (the song is also being used as a Bravo promo) and recently the music video for "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks" with Snoop Lion that premiered last week sees her in a more mature side. With ALL of that hype, Miley Cyrus was ready to premiere her new song "We Can't Stop" on KIIS FM's On Air With Ryan Seacrest this morning. The track is also the lead single off of her upcoming fourth studio album slated to come out this summer. The midtempo Rihanna-esque sounding song produced by Mike Will Made It is kind of catchy and "we can't stop" listening to it, not gonna lie (see what we did there?). I love these lyrics mainly because I want to replace "Miley" with "Kenny" lol. But what do you guys think of the song? Is it a contender for the Summer 2013 anthem?

We like to party
Dancing with Miley
Doin' whatever we want
This is our house
This is our rules
And we can't stop
