Man alive! It’s a glorious day out there today and what better way to enjoy it by checking out this great selection of tunes.
Your Song by Rita Ora - Yas! Rita is allowed to be a pop star again! Not to be confused with Elton John, this is a summery Clean Bandit type tune that’s not as good as I Will Never Let You Down, but hey, she’s back so that’s super.
Remember I Told You by Nick Jonas - Sounding incredibly like Drake, Jonas has made one hell of a smart move by drafting in Anne-Marie who is THE star of the moment… not so much with Mike Posner though.
Power by Little Mix - Okaaay, so we’ve had the “serious” anthems a la Shout Out To My Ex etc. So here comes the fun! This track is ferocious and grrrrrrowly. Great job ladies. Stormzy is rent-a-rapper on this one.
I’m Stuck by Noah Cyrus - Baby Ray Cyrus has done an Adele with the verse, but as soon as the chorus kicks in it’s rawhide at 8!!! I’m praying for the Cyrus Sisters to tour together.
I have Questions by Camila Cabello - I never would’ve thought that the pop world would have embraced Cabello like they have. For me, Fifth Harmony made no impact whatsoever (must be a British thing). But after the release of last weeks surprise hit Crying In The Club, she’s doing right to give us more. She’s pretty good and I’m anticipating more.
Tyrant by Kali Uchis - This is a jam! Not only because it features the delectable Jorja Smith, but also as it’s a perfect summer spinner. Lil bit Amy Winehouse too.
I Miss Those Days by Bleachers - 80s-a-go-go! It’s like Lloyd Cole is back (ask ya dad). I’m loving their stuff sooooo much more than Fun. Keep up the good vibes boys.
Call Me by NEIKED - I am all over this artist!!! So I’m giving this “TUNE OF DA WEEK!” After the smash hit Sexual, they have enlisted Mimi to provide the lush vocals accompanied by a driving bass line.
Bedroom EP by Mabel - When your mama is Nenaeh Cherry and your dad produced Massive Attack, you know you’re in for something special. Fans of 90s R&B will lap this up.
At 22, she had already succeeded in both the music (‘Try Again’) & movie industry ('Romeo Must Die’, 'Queen Of The Damned’) and continues to influence artists like Beyoncé, Ciara, Rita Ora and Jessie Ware.
