To my R&B lovers, remember Vivian Green? Her song “Emotional Rollercoaster” from the early 2000s is a modern classic. This is her best single since then, featuring a sample of another classic. It’s too bad adult R&B doesn’t get the exposure and radio play it used to—this is a bona fide hit.
This is the kind of song I’ve been looking to hear from Daya since her Grammy-winning breakout performance on “Don’t Let Me Down.” She’s said that she wanted to continue to go in that indie/electronic pop direction (sorta like this gem), and after a couple singles that didn’t quite standout, she’s now delivered with her own epic single that fits her elite vocals.
I’ve already made it pretty clear what I think about this song. One of the best pop tracks of the year. Timing has a lot to do with that, as it’s a great change-of-pace for the fall season, and the Spanish vibe is sensational, as we’ve likewise experienced with “Despacito” this summer.
Here’s the long-awaited video for “Havana.”
His best/least corny hit.
Most of you may have probably already heard this, so I’m featuring it here as a newly-released video.
Secret: This genre-blurring rhythmic pop track is one of the catchiest vibes of the year.
