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 is just :cry: :cry: :cry: . 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.

3. Röyksopp - Never Ever (feat. Susanne Sundfør)

Image



So catchyyyyy. I love Susanne Sundfor and casually enjoy some Royksopp and this is the perfect combination of the two. I can't believe it didn't really smash (or it did but I didn't notice?). Her voice is so nice.
          STAY TUNED FOR MY #1 AND #2 TOMORROW! GUESSES?

Röyksopp - Never Ever (feat. Susanne Sundfør)
It's catchy yet distant from being bubblegum or throwaway which is quite a feat.

The newest discovery for me, stumbled upon it randomly on a youtube playlist. The catchiest thing ever! I can't believe it went by unnoticed! And the lyrics video is hilarous. Plus I've been feeling sexual myself lately so it's also relatable. :lol: If you like pop music, I urge you to give this a try even though it was never a hit.
Sexual is such a sexual song isn't it? <3 I'm surprised you never thought it was successful, it has done so well in the UK charts and i've seen the lyric video on a few music channels over the last month. It definitely didn't go by unnoticed. :P

2. Ariana Grande - Into You

Image



This is such a pop masterpiece. So exhilirating, sensual, sexy and enticing! Her career peak in my book (and I stanned for Break Free as well). This is on a whole other level. If it had been released as lead single, it would've been even bigger.

"Into You" is a great song. It's definitely one of the highlights on Ariana's most recent album. :)

1. Jennifer Lopez - Ain't Your Mama

Image



So very unexpected! Who would've thought this was my number 1?! Except for everyone ever. Hmm well yes. Not sure what to say and how to explain my profound love for this song. It's just really catchy. :lol: That beat is too contagious, the melody as well, and it's so silly I can't help but love it. I wish it was an On The Floor-sized hit, but oh well. My fave JLo song officially. I still listen to it often and it never gets old.

"Ain't Your Mama" was quite big where I live. I heard it on the radio way too often, that's why it started to annoy me quickly.

Two great tunes. One more a pop masterpiece than the other, but J.Lo is catchy as hell, I don't begrudge her the win!

Love Into You, I agree it would have been huge if it was the lead!

Not a fan of the J-Lo song, sorry

Pretty solid Top 2!

"Into You" definitely deserved more success than it got. It's one of my favourite Ariana singles, if not my absolute favourite.

Interesting to see "Ain't Your Mama" at #1. It's a catchy song, that's for sure, but J.Lo has so many stronger songs. Still, it makes for a surprising and solid chart-topper!
