No Broken Hearts
is terrible, but I kind of like it. Boyfriend
is good pop song, Team
is a bad one. I also loved F*ck Apologies
when it came out but rarely play it anymore. MØ delivered one of the best basic bops of the year, Final Song
has such a strong melody. Drone Bomb Me
is the one though; killer production and the subject matter hits me hard.
I can't remember what the Cher Lloyd song sounds like. Same goes for Demi. Couldn't believe I liked a M-Train song when NO
came out, though it wore off after 8 plays on my iTunes. Adele really went for the emotions with When We Were Young
, didn't she? A relatable subject matter that isn't tackled enough in pop music. The backing vocals in the final chorus are everything. Ain't My Fault
goes awwwwf, while Work
is effortlessly one of the best tracks of 2016.
I want to like Laura Mvula more than I do, something about her music hasn't quite clicked with me. I'm late on checking out Mitski; need to listen her album, the single is powerful. I like the SEB song but it's all a bit underwhelming. Despite Nicki recycling her verse again, Side to Side
is a certified bop.Needed Me
is perfect. Haven't played Blended Family
much since it came out; it's a nice song, but In Common
is the only song from the album I love. Cool Girl
and Gemini Feed
are the kind of moody pop I love, massive songs. Better
is a low-key bop, poor Meghatron. Need to check out the Corinne album. B really did that with Sorry
; her flow and endless quotable lyrics fit so well against the song's urban backdrop and Caribbean lilt. Cranes in the Sky
. Solange just gets it and describes it so well. A masterpiece.
The Clare Maguire, Shura and Shakira songs are all very good. I like Santigold's track as well, though the first two singles from her album got a lot more spins from me. Loved the NEIKED song when it came out, but overkill on radio has me sick of it at the moment. Cheap Thrills
got old a lot faster for me, but I guess not every song can have the resilience of Lush Life
