Winona Oak & Robin Schulz – “Oxygen” [Lucas Estrada Remix]

This remix came out in late August. To me it’s super-underrated at 1.6 million plays on Spotify. That’s not bad, but to me it has the magnitude of a 10 million+ song. I think we might see more Deep House/Euro House vibes like this emerge as a more popular radio sound in the coming year. Another similar hit I picked on it’s release, “i miss u, now has over 20 million plays on Spotify.

Lynda ft. Soolking – “Luna”

I figured it out. The main reason why I’m drawn to French “Pop Urbaine”. It’s the same reason why RedOne is one of my favorite producers of all time. Their sound is just so global. The melodies are so exotic, like you’re on a trip somewhere foreign. On top of a vibey beat. Not to mention loving some of the scenery in their music videos. There’s no more RedOnes, Timbalands, Max Martins, Akons, etc. in today’s pop music anymore(at least not as prominent), so me being the fiend I am, I’ve had to tap more into European playlists like “Chill House” and “Pop Urbaine” for my “new music with catchy melodies” fix 🤣 🤣 🤣. 

The Weeknd – “Blinding Lights”

It’s an absolute debacle that this song wasn’t nominated for a Grammy. I think it’ll stand as The Weeknd’s biggest and best single, which is saying a lot because “The Hills” and “Starboy” were crazy af. Trust me, I know that electro-pop style of music is passé. But man. This is a mind-blowing song that will actually be very memorable as years pass. This comment sums it up perfectly:

Yebba – “Distance”

I don’t care about the Grammys. But they are what they are. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of the underrated gems I’ve picked here was nominated for a Grammy. I held out on posting for a while, and this is one of the few great songs I’ve discovered and wanted to share from Spotify’s weekly New Music Friday playlist. Even without a video for it. Just a little proof that you can be sure to only find songs a cut above the rest here! Congratulations to this talented artist.
