Christina Grimmie finished third on season six of The Voice but she was arguably the breakout star with high-profile support from industry heavyweights Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne. The talented 20-year-old was soon signed to Islands Records and wasted no time recording “Must Be Love” — the lead single from her as-yet-untitled sophomore set.
The celebrate the July 31 release of “Must Be Love”, the former YouTube sensation has put together a special Spotify playlist to put you in the mood for romance. Beyonce‘s “Love On Top” and James Blake‘s beautiful cover of Joni Mitchell‘s “A Case Of You” are great picks, while Christina Aguilera appears twice (“Beautiful” and “Impossible”). Which is no surprise because Ms. Grimmie is a loud and proud Xtina fan. Listen to rising star’s playlist and check out a couple of snippets from her own single after the jump.
