This super-lush melodic house track will get stuck in your head.
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.
You might not know Jones outside of the U.K., but this feel-good upbeat song could and should help her ascend into worldwide stardom.
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.”
Of the thousands of songs I’ve heard this year, this is one of the most mind-boggling of them all. She’s definitely one to watch with this standout futuristic debut single.
Here is Kygo doing what he does.
I like DJ Snake. So I was probably a bit more patient with this song than most would be. Not that it’s bad, it’s just that it’s one of those songs that you may need a second or third listen to like. I know that’s asking a lot in today’s game, but take a listen. Lauv’s a name to look out for.
His best/least corny hit.
Deep alternative Soul track by a rising star in R&B, Brent Faiyaz (who you heard featured on this hit).
Only 2M+ plays on Spotify? Not knocking that, I just think it’s worthy of 5x that number. Absolute global smash produced by Eva Shaw, featuring one of the signature voices of dance music in Shaggy (and another good one in Demarco).
I was shocked to see that this was a debut single.
Secret: This genre-blurring rhythmic pop track is one of the catchiest vibes of the year.
